In My Mailbox #26: The Urban Fantasy Edition

This post is so named because I'm seeing a definite theme in the books I bought and received this past week-- it's all very fanciful in nature, and all very urban in setting.  I've been very stressed out lately, what with the semester drawing to a close and studying for exams, so a little escapism and some fun reads are exactly what I need right now!

Here's what I got:

YA




Adult


--Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader (an anthology) edited by Cassandra Clare
--Sweetly (Fairy Tale Retellings #2) by Jackson Pearce
--Trapped (Iron Druid Chronicles #5) by Kevin Hearne
--Legend by Marie Lu


All in all a very good, though small, haul!  I'm so happy to finally get my hands on Trapped, and I'm finding the Mortal Instruments book really interesting.  
So, what's in ya'll's mailboxes this week?

I love the cover for Sweetly. Of course it's been sitting on my shelf unread for some time, but still, pretty!

I've always wanted to try some UF but never have for one reason or another. I'll have to check one our from the library.

And I've only heard great things about Legend, though I haven't read it myself. Hope you enjoy!


Mind checking out my IMM?

Sweetly is really good! :) I loved the original use of the fairytales. I still want to read Legend. Happy reading and great haul :)

I like the Sweetly cover, hadn't heard of that one before.
I'm waiting for Legend to arrive too - I wonder what we'll think of it =D
Hope you enjoy your new reads!
