In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. This week I received...

Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley
In Feyland, all fairies are born with unique magical abilities. Zaria spent her childhood yearning to be like other fairies, but at twelve, she became one of the most powerful fairies ever. Sneaking through a secret doorway to the human world, Zaria is Earth-struck: she wants to understand and experience everything about humans. But when she is seen, her exposure puts all of Feyland at risk. With only her own judgment to guide her. Zaria must try to fix the mess she's made on Earth. Will she use her new power wisely and make the right choices?


The Hollow by Jessica Verday

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead...and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey has never felt so desperately alone. Then she meets Caspian, a gorgeous and mysterious stranger who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special. Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her - one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian as well as her own sanity.

Here's hoping they're good. They've got to be better than Ghost Huntress (see failing review below)! I'm ready for a worthy read!

Thanks Ryan. You are a generous soul and blogger!

I hope you have a better experience with these picks! I look forward to your reviews. :)

Oh, and the final ending to Hush, Hush hints at a sequel moreso than the ARC version of the ending. Personally, I like the final version ending better even if it is a subtle change.
