The Postman Knock #37

Still enjoying the sunshine, ladies and fellas. Wishing you the same! And how are you, me dears?

I had a fab reading week. 
I've READ:

THE HALLOWED ONES was fantastic! I find that I really like Laura Bickle's no-nonsense sensible characters be that adult or YA fiction. It's a short read, and I gobbled it up in just a couple of hours. THE ENEMY INSIDE was pretty good too, but I felt that characters were not developed properly, and the quality of the book somewhat suffered. At last, THE GHOST BRIDE was an unexpectedly delightful surprise! I was expecting historical murder mystery but what I got was a cool version of Spirited Away with a spunky ghostly main heroine. Loved it!


I am extremely excited about all of these titles, especially On Midnight Wings!


An unsolicited copy courtesy of Penguin. It's huge and I don't know when I read it, but I'll try my best. Thank you!


This series came recommended to me, and I'm glad I'll be able to try it now.


I've started on the waiting list for Dead Ever After as number 18 in my library before the book was released. At last it's my turn now! :)

This is it. Listen to some nice music and happy Sunday!

P.S. Has anyone watched Hemlock Grove? It's amazing!

You already got My Lady Quicksilver? I am jealous! :-) Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

Nice haul this week!

Mel said...

Oh, I love Laura Bickle's books...she does not get enough exposure on the blogosphere!

Is the Hoffman part of a series? Cos I have seen book 1 and2 around

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Vika, I saw it couple of days ago and requested straight away. Can't wait! :)

D., I just like how her main heroines are always practical and resourceful without all that drama. I find it really appealing. Can't wait to read The Outside!

Mel, no, she doesn't! And it's a shame :(

Blodeuedd, it is the third book in the series.

Kat said...

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
