In My Mailbox (12)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren.

I got a few books this week but some of them are books I’ve been dying to read.
I wish I could’ve taken a photo of them to show the pictures to you guys but I still haven’t figured out the Bluetooth thing with my laptop. I never ever should’ve pressed delete.

For Review:

From NAL

Flying Blind (The Dragon Diaries #1) by Deborah Cooke (ARC)

The next generation of shape-shifting dragons from the popular author of the Dragonfire novels.

Zoë Sorensson is perfectly normal, except she's been told she's destined for great things. Zoë's the one female dragon shapeshifter of her kind. But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr and her powers are AWOL, so she's sent to a Pyr boot camp.

Zoë quickly realizes that she has to master her powers yesterday, because the Pyr are in danger and boot camp is a trap. The Mages want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line-unless Zoë and her friends can work together and save their own kind.

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes (Finished Copy - Paperback)

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.

As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.

And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.

From Sourcebooks Fire

I've read The Once and Future King - very, very long by the way. My mom brought it home when she came back from the US. A guy there gave it to her as a gift. 

Percival’s Angel by Anne Eliot Crompton

Lili, an apprentice of the Lady of the Lake, is the childhood friend of Percy, the boy who will become one of Arthur's greatest knights. But as they grow older, Lili begins to see their differences. She has otherworldly magic while he has the magic that lives within the Human Heart. Lili dreams of knowing human love while Percy dreams of finding the Holy Grail. Neither can succeed without the other.Once again Crompton weaves together nature, feminist perspective, and Arthurian legend for a tale that is sure to appeal to readers of all ages.

Gawain and Lady Green by Anne Eliot Crompton

A mysterious green stranger gallops into King Arthur's court and poses a unique challenge: any knight of the Round Table may try to chop off his head on the condition that if they succeed, he will have the same opportunity one year later. After a shameful silence, Sir Gawain steps forward and beheads the stranger. To everyone's surprise, the stranger then picks up his head and leaves, reminding Gawain of their future meeting. This captivating follow-up to Merlin's Harp, now back in print, puts a new twist on the classic story of honor, pride, love, and betrayal.
