In My Mailbox - 18 & Sunday Post - 9

In My Mailbox is a weekly post hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where bloggers can discuss the books we got in the mail this week.

This week I had the special priveledge of borrowing my friend, Paula's kindle. She's pretty awesome to trust me with it. I'm only featuring the two books I'm currently borrowing her kindle to read because I'm not going to feature every book available to me through her kindle library. These two books are actually loanable on the kindle, but long story short, borrowing her kindle was necessary for me to be able to read these.

Fate (My Blood Approves, # 2)

By: Amanda Hocking

Self-published April 25th 2010

334 pages

Source: Borrowed from friend Paula, kindle version

( Goodreads | Amazon )

Goodreads description--Fate - the second installment in the My Blood Approves series...

Alice Bonham thinks she's finally found a balance in her life between the supernatural and real life with her brother Milo. Jack - her sorta vampire boyfriend - keeps her at arm's length to keep her safe. As for his brother Peter... she's not sure where he's at, or what he wants with her. Worse still, she's not even sure what she wants with Peter.

When tragedy happens, Alice finds herself struggling with a terrible choice. Her decision has consequences that reach farther than she'd ever imagined...

Flutter (My Blood Approves, # 3)

By: Amanda Hocking

Published: May 29th 2010 by Lulu (first published May 25th 2010)

307 pages

Source: Borrowed from friend, kindle version

( Flutter | Amazon )

Goodreads description--Flutter - the third book in the My Blood Approves series...

Being undead doesn't make life any easier for Alice Bonham.

Her younger brother's love life is heating up, while hers is... more complicated. Mae is falling apart, her best friend Jane is addicted to vampire bites, and if Alice doesn't get her bloodlust under control, someone will end up dead.

Alice volunteers for a rescue mission with Ezra. But going up against a pack of rabid vampires might be too much, even for him.

    1. I'll just say I've been impressed with her. She may not be the best author EVER, but she's better than some I've read. So yeah. Plus I haven't read a vampire book in a while. I felt overdue.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks and thanks for stopping by! I do hope to eventually get through Jane Eyre, but I haven't been devoting 100% of my attention to it, but considering all the books I have started at one time, I rarely ever do!
