In my mailbox #4

It is time for In my mailbox yet again! Another weekend coming to a close. :( There is an upside to this thanks story siren. :) This meme is where we post what we have either bought, borrowed or won over the week. First on my list is what I purchased in paperback only one this week. :)
Ascend By Amanda Hocking (From Goodreads) The final book in the Trylle Trilogy.. With a war looming on the horizon, Wendy's fate seems sealed.But everything she sacrificed might be in vain if she can't save the ones she loves. Her whole life has been leading up to this, and it's all coming to an end. Now onto what I downloaded from Smashwords!
Water By Terra Harmony (From Goodreads) All of the elemental powers are in the palm of her hand…and it won't be enough to save her. When Kaitlyn Alder is involuntarily introduced to a life of magic, she becomes part of an organization hell-bent on saving the Earth. Just as her new-found life holds promises of purpose, romance, and friendship, the organization divides and a rogue member holds Kaitlyn hostage. Now one of the most terrifying men the human race has to offer stands between her and Earth's survival.
Air By Terra Harmony (From Goodreads) She carries more than just elemental powers. In ‘Air’, the sequel to ‘Water’ of the Akasha Series, Kaitlyn has a secret. One she won’t be able to hide much longer. As the strongest Gaia the planet has ever seen, she must face mankind’s greatest enemy as he campaigns for ‘One Less: Depopulation’. Everything depends on Kaitlyn fully embracing her role as Gaia. Her family. The Seven. The Earth. Something has to give, and it won’t be Kaitlyn.
Clockwise By Elle Strauss (From Goodreads) Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this --she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward. Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness? When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again. Which of course, she does. Thats it for this week. :) I have already finished Water my review is already posted and I am about 80% finished with Air I hope to finish by tonight. :) Clockwise is free on Smashwords for the time being if anyone is interested. Ascend will have to be put in my tbr pile. Too many books so little time. :) Send a link so I can see whats in your mailbox for this week. Happy readings. :)

At first glance, The cover rocks my socks! I really like the way the title and cover go so well with what the book is about. I looked up the second book and feel the same way, They are awesome. Now on to the actual book part, Terra Harmony has come up with an amazing idea for a book that was creative and original. I really enjoyed the ride I was on while reading this. First Kaitlyn is on a mountain escaping an avalanch, next she is in a room not knowing where or who has her. I loved Kaitlyn's character she was snarky and very strong willed which I like to see in Main character's. Terra did a great job building up the characters relationships with eachother. Whenever Shawn would do anything and Kaitlyn would react even under stress and abuse with her snarky attitude I wanted to give her a high five for being so strong! She didnt just surfer through the abuse and try and wait out being rescued she actually tried to save herself, Props to her! The ending I kind of saw coming but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. I just purchased the second book Air and I am going to start it right now. ;)Thanks Shut and read for giving me this book to review I throughly enjoyed it.

Oh how I missed snarky Sophie Mercer. This book had me mesmerized. I could not put it down. Thank you Rachel Hawkins for delivering another fantastic read!
Sophie uncovers the secrets of her past, and allies up with some surprising people. All the old gang returns, with the introduction of some new members, in a race to stop Lara Casnoff from unleashing her demon army. Ok lets just get this straight, Lara is just evil.
Even with her powers locked away inside her, Sophie manages to be resourceful and brave. She is chalked full of humor and derisive comments, and she had me laughing several times over.
What a great ending to a fun series!
