This week in my mailbox...

Darkest Mercy (Wicked Lovely #5) by Melissa Marr



The Summer King is missing; the Dark Court is bleeding; and a stranger walks the streets of Huntsdale, his presence signifying the deaths of powerful fey.

Aislinn tends to the Summer Court, searching for her absent king and yearning for Seth. Torn between his new queen and his old love, Keenan works from afar to strengthen his court against the coming war. Donia longs for fiery passion even as she coolly readies the Winter Court for battle. And Seth, sworn brother of the Dark King and heir to the High Queen, is about to make a mistake that could cost his life.

Love, despair, and betrayal ignite the Faery Courts, and in the final conflict, some will win . . . and some will lose everything.

The thrilling conclusion to Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series will leave readers breathless.


A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford


Eden didn't expect Az.

Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.

Yeah.

So long, happily-ever-after.

Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.

She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own.

And that's only the beginning of the end.


Desires of the Dead (The Body Finder #2) by Kimberly Derting



The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.

Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.


That's it for this week and it's not even Tuesday yet...there are at least three more books scheduled to be released tomorrow that will be coming my way. How I accomplish anything at all is beyond me.


I hope everyone had a great weekend!

The next YA book I'm reading is Angelfire. I still have to order Mortal Touch.

*shakes fist* you always give me MORE for my enormous TBR list! But that's okay, the truth is I just need to read faster!!! Now where's that coffee?

Hannah Kincade said...

I want to read DESIRES OF THE DEAD but I was not extremely impressed with the first one. It was entertaining, no doubt but I just didn't "love" it, you know?

Lindsay said...

All awesome books on my TBR list also. But you knew they would be, right? LOL.

Deniz Bevan said...

Eek! I could never get involved with this - way too dangerous, as my To Read piles are already toppling over (if they touch the ceiling will that help them stay up?).
Still, it's fun reading about what others are reading - thanks for sharing!

I just started Desires of the Dead and can't wait for Melissa Marr's new book. It's on reserve at the library. Happy reading!

Kenda said...
