In My Mailbox #19

Hosted by The Story Siren. In My Mailbox is a meme where bloggers can share with you what they received in their mailbox/from library/bought/etc.

Very quiet week for books this week, so I'm also giving a sneak peek of what I'm reading ;)

In the post:

Angel's Fury by Bryony Pearce.  My thanks go to Egmont for this.  This is out in July, and sounds like a haunting and very different book in comparison to the books I've read this year so far.

Angel's Fury book synopsis:
Every atrocity. Every war. Every act of vengeance. One fallen angel walks the earth to bring mankind to its destruction...Turning love into hate, forgiveness into blame, hope into despair. Through the fires of hell he will come to haunt one girl's dreams. But what if everything she ever dreamed was true? Every time Cassie Smith tries to sleep, she is plagued by visions of a death: A little girl called Zillah. A victim of the holocaust. In desperation Cassie is sent for treatment in an old manor house. There she meets other children just like her. Including Seth...Seth who looks so familiar. Her dream becomes nightmare. And then reality.

Sneak peek:

I've got a backlog of reviews that I'm now scheduling as I've read a fair amount of books in the last month.  The most recent onces are:

The Woman He Loved Before by Dorothy Koomson
Wintercraft Blackwatch by Jenna Burtenshaw
Leaves from the Fig Tree by Diana Duff
Between the Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
and a few more...!!

I've just started reading The 13 Secrets by Michelle Harrison.

Shaun's still reading Gladiator, Harry is alternating reading Alison Jay books with using StoryWorld cards.
OH has just finished reading the Time Riders series (3 so far) by Alex Scarrow...I'm trying to get him to commit pen to paper to get a review out of him....writing is not his strong point!  He tried reading Sanctus by Simon Toyne after I'd reviewed it but couldn't get into he's now reading I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

That's it for this week...looking forward to reading Angel's Fury but have some other books to read first.
