In My Mailbox #8 -New books from the past two weeks!

In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers share the books they have received each week.  

I got some great books for review recently, and some nice surprises too!

Click on links for Goodreads/Amazon descriptions.  

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain.
I've heard lots of good things about this one. I'm really excited to read it!

Troubadour by Mary Hoffman.
I don't know anything much about this book -  it was a surprise arrival in my mailbox.  I love historical fiction though, so I'm looking forward to reading it. If anyone else has read it, let me know what you thought.
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles.
This was another nice surprise in my mailbox.  When I saw the cover, I wasn't sure if it'd be my kind of thing, but I've already finished the book, and I absolutely LOVED it!

I also received The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller.  I'm really excited to read this one.  I generally love themes of rebirth and reincarnation in books, and this one sounds really interesting!

What if love refused to die?

Haven Moore can’t control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan, and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother’s house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.

In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves¸ before all is lost and the cycle begins again.

Let me know what landed in your mailbox this week!

Thanks to Egmont, Simon & Shuster UK, Penguin & Bloomsbury for these books.
