Parcel in the Post - 2 Awesome Books + 1 Gift

A few weeks ago I read a great review of the Parasol Protectorate series - of which SOULLESS is number one - by Faith. It sounded like something I'd enjoy so I clicked over to my online book shop and ordered it right away.

Two days ago the series was also reviewed by Paperback Dolls. So now I'm even more keen to read it!





I've seen quite a bit of online buzz recently about the Caster Chronicles because of the release of BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS, the second in the series. So, I figured it was time to find out what all the fuss is about! Enter: BEAUTIFUL CREATURES.
And even if it doesn't turn out to be so great, the cover is gorgeous! It's gonna look super on my book shelf ;-)






And, thirdly, Jenn recently held a little competition during her Dystopian Book-Talking Birthday Bash on her blog, and I won!! I got to choose between five different dystopian titles, and since I've heard a lot about THE GIVER recently (and never read it *shock*), I picked that one.

Jenn, in case you can't see the sticky note so well, it says:
Thank you, Jenn!

On a completely unrelated topic...
Sometime in the past day or two my blog's all-time number of page-views passed 1000! Yay!
(Okay, those of you who passed this number some time ago, please stop snickering. I am in my happy place, and I like it here)

Let me know how BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is. I have it on my to be read list, but I don't know. I had heard good things about it, so I downloaded a sample to my Kindle. The sample was alright, but it didn't make me click "buy it now." It just didn't grab me. I'd love to hear what you think.

Quinn said...

Congrats on the 1000 page views!

Melissa said...

Rachel - I'm with Quinn. I'd like to know how Beautiful Creatures is too. Congrats on your 1000!!! That's awesome. =D

The giver is interesting. My daughter read it last year, so I went over it with her. I'd like to find out what you think of that one too.

Rachel Morgan said...

Thanks for the comments :-)

After the first few pages of SOULLESS I can say:
It's quite humorous :-)

All of those covers are gorgeous. Book covers are sooo important, I think.

I've come by to say hello from one crusader to another.

Mia said...

Beautiful Creatures and Soulless look amazing! I was totally eying them up on amazon the other day. Tell me what you think once you've read them!
