In My Mailbox #14

This week was a slow week for me, which I truly needed after buying and receiving all of those books for my birthday. I really need to get caught up on my reading, but thankfully, summer is coming soon, which is when I get a lot of reading done! Official countdown: 47 days and 34 school days!  This meme is hosted by The Story Siren.

Burned (House of Night #7) by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
This series is definitely one of my embarrassing guilty pleasures, but I still come back for me. I can't stand the teen speak in this series, but sadly, I am hooked.  I think I will wait to read this one on the beach. :)
Goodreads says, "Y’all need to get yourselves together. Here’s a newsflash from the only High Priestess you have left at this dang school: Zoey isn’t dead. And believe me, I know dead. I’ve been there, done that and got the fricken tee-shirt.   Zoey Redbird is the youngest High Priestess in House of Night history and is the only person – vamp or fledgling – that can stop the evil Neferet from raising all kinds of immortal trouble. And she might just have a chance if she wasn’t so busy being dead.  Well, dead is too strong a word. Stevie Rae knows she can bring her BFF back from her unscheduled va-cay in the Otherworld. But it’s going to take a lot more than hoping to bring Zoey back. Stevie Rae will have to give up a few secrets of her own . . "

Mistwood by Leah Cypess
I am about halfway through this book and I'm a bit disappointed.  I'm hoping it picks up. It seems I may be only one of the few that didn't really LOVE this book, but I'm hoping the last half of the novel will change my opinion, because I was really looked forward to this book.  
Goodreads says, "The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwod.   But when she is needed she always comes.  Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.  Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty--because without it, she may be his greatest threat.  Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them. Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew."

If you have read any of these books, please let me know what you think. I look forward to checking out what everyone else got this week.  Happy reading!

  4. I have to admit that some things about the House of Night series really get on my last nerve... but I've read two of them and I keep getting the urge to read another. I guess there's something addictive about them. I'm kind of mildly interested in Mistwood so I'll be interested to hear what you think about it once you've finished. Hope it picks up for you.

  7. I bought Mistwood this week too after I read a good review of it and I liked the excerpt of the first chapter that I read. I am sorry you aren't enjoying it. I hope it gets better as you finish it. I hope you like Burned since the series is a favorite of yours.
