After the excitement of Mockingjay release day, this week was quieter for new mailbox arrivals. However, for new titles hitting the bookstores, it was another pretty huge week, so I've been really busy reading and writing up reviews. (Is there is a reason so many titles launch at the beginning of September? I have no idea why, but there are a LOT.)

Mistress of the Storm - M.L. Welsh
First, I have to say that this cover is utterly beautiful in real life, and the way it appears onscreen really doesn't do it justice. The jacket copy describes it as 'A wind-swept, salt-sprayed novel that will whisk you away...' and as someone who would rather be at the beach than any other place on earth, I'm already beguiled. Thanks to the author for this one.
My So-Called Haunting - Tamsyn Murray
Yay! I'm super excited to read this one, because Tamsyn Murray's first book - My So-Called Afterlife - was cute and funny and basically awesome. (Review here). Thanks to Piccadilly for this one.
The Haunted - Jessica Verday
This is the sequel to 2009's The Hollow, which I really loved (review here). I adore Verday's beautifully descriptive style, and the way that she draws on Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in the telling of this series. It feels like I've been looking forward to this one a *long* time.
Whisper My Name - Jane Eagland
I read Jane Eagland's first novel Wildthorn a few weeks ago, and thought it was pretty amazing. True, I haven't gotten around to reviewing it yet, but I will definitely do so at some point. In the meantime, I couldn't resist this one.
