In My Mailbox #20

Dark Flame (The Immortals #4)  by Alyson Noel
*I wasn't that impressed with Shadowland, the third book in the series, but I am interested to see where Noel will take the plot.  Lets hope this one is better than the third. I must admit I am more interested in her sister, Riley, and the spin-off series, which will be coming out the end of this summer.
Goodreads says, "At the start of this mesmerizing new installment of the Immortals series, Ever is helping her friend Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick in order to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she’s bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless—there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. Desperate to break free of this terrible curse before Damen or the twins can discover what she’s done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper and deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including Damen."

Splendor (Luxe #4) by Anna Godbersen
*Of course I ran out to buy this one right after I finished Envy.  I need to know how Godbersen will end this fantastic series. I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
Goodreads says, "New beginnings. Shocking revelations. Unexpected endings. A spring turns into summer, Elizabeth relishes her new role as a young wife, while her sister, Diana, searches for adventure abroad. But when a surprising clue about their father's death comes to light, the Holland girls wonder at what cost a life of splendor comes.Carolina Broad, society's newest darling, fans a flame from her past, oblivious to how it might burn her future. Penelope Schoonmaker is finally Manhattan royalty—but when a real prince visits the city, she covets a title that comes with a crown. Her husband, Henry, bravely went to war, only to discover that his father's rule extends well beyond New York's shores and that fighting for love may prove a losing battle. In the dramatic conclusion to the bestselling Luxe series, New York's most dazzling socialites chase dreams, cling to promises, and tempt fate. As society watches what will become of the city's oldest families and newest fortunes, one question remains: Will its stars fade away or will they shine ever brighter?

What did you guys get in your mailbox?  Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you think.  I look forward to checking out everyone's  mailboxes. Have a great day!  This meme is hosted by The Story Siren.

  4. Think I will be borrowing Dark Flame as I have been disappointed with Noel's series and from the summary it looks like I might be disappointed with Ever's character and actions again

  6. I haven't read the Alison Noel books yet but have Evermore here. I've heard some say they 'broke up with the series' after the third book. We'll have to see when I get to them!

  8. I know I've already mentioned how much I like the covers of The Luxe series, but seriously? Those dresses are to die for. Wow. I still haven't read the third book in the Immortals series (it's one of those series that I've forced myself to stick with, lol), but I have it around here somewhere so I'll probably read it eventually.

    Btw, what you said about boyfriends on my guest post at Maria's...hilarious! And SO true!! (:
