Ash - Malinda Lo
Summary from Amazon: In the wake of her father's death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, rereading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she believes that her wish may be granted.
The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King's Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash's capacity for love-and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.
Is there anyone in the world who isn’t aware I’ve been desperate to read this book for eons? (Well, for like months at least, and I have no patience so it feels like longer).
Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick
Summary from bookcover: For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere and know everything. She can't decide whether to fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is in the middle of a centuries-old battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, sooner or later, she’s going to have to pick a side...
Okay, so this one was less ‘in my mailbox’ and more ‘in a rainstorm’. And I had to wear angel wings in public to get it. Luckily, I have no shame. What I do have is a spare copy that survived the downpour with only a few scratches, and a contest here.
A Wrinkle In Time - Madeleine L’Engle
Summary from Goodreads: Everyone in town thinks Meg is volatile and dull-witted and that her younger brother Charles Wallace is dumb. People are also saying that their father has run off and left their brilliant scientist mother.
Spurred on by these rumors, Meg and Charles Wallace, along with their new friend Calvin, embark on a perilous quest through space to find their father.
In doing so they must travel behind the shadow of an evil power that is darkening the cosmos, one planet at a time.
This one’s a reread - I’ll be doing a Time Travel Tuesday post on it some time this month. It’s a second-hand buy, and the cover is the exact one pictured. Isn’t it beautiful? If it’s not as wonderful as I remember, I’ll be posting about how my dreams have been stolen and life has lost its meaning. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
