In My Mailbox (9)



Boys That Bite by Mari Mancusi

It arrived on Friday and I read it in one day; I enjoyed it quite a lot. I’ll post the review soon^^



embrujo_nina_blazon_montena_ellas_faunblutEmbrujo by Nina Blazon (Spell)

“Faun, a boy of disturbing black eyes and Nordic beauty, is staying in Larimar, the huge and ruinous pension of Jakub and her daughter Jade. Summer has just arrived and and the city is in deep crisis: at the same time that a group of rebels conspires against Lady Mar, the cruel sovereign that hides her face behind a metal mask, strange magic creatures sow panic by the intricate streets surrounding the river.

And, while they see how the world falls around them, will Faun and Jade be able to resist the spell of love?”

This author has one book published in English called The Pact of the Wolves but I don’t think “Spell” has been translated to English. Lately, the publishers in Spain are publishing a lot of German and Italian books; it’s cool because there are some that sound pretty good.

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren.

.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.This Thursday I wanted to post about a very special thing that happened where I live but unfortunately I got really sick and I haven’t post a thing during all week. What happened is that on Monday, during all the day, snowed a lot in all Catalonia. Yeah, ok, it isn’t something that special for many people, but for us it was because I think this is the second time in my life that I see snow in my town, and it is definitely the first time that it snows that much in Catalonia since I was born. I wanted to post some photos that I took with my friends:23616_1373347299695_1412165326_1027537_8125753_n


I am the girl with the red jacket and beige wool cap (in the first photo I’m the second starting by the left, and in the second pic I’m the one in the middle). So now you know why I’ve been sick all the week; Just my craziness for the snow^^ It’s not that I rarely see snow since at least once a year I go skiing or to the mountain with my family or friends to play with the snow and the sleds, but walking by the street and having all this snow falling over me, seeing all the kids in the streets all excited running and playing, and remembering when I went to London two years ago and it snowed (actually, when I went to London I caught a peek of all kind of weather; the day I arrived was really hot, the second day rained, and the third one snowed), I couldn’t help but be happy and smile to every single person I saw in the street. Also there’s the fact that on Thursday the schools closed (first time in my life too) and that thanks to being sick I haven’t gone to school all week.

Well, that’s all that’s happened this week. Now I’m healthy again and very eager to read. OH, and this week I’m waiting for a package full of book to arrive^^

DTW cover

So I have a question: Does anyone know if the cover for “The Dead-Tossed Waves” is reversible? Because I remember reading it somewhere but I can’t seem to find any information about it.. I have the original cover for “The Forest of Hands and Teeth” and I would like to have matching covers. I like the original cover better; I love the different tonalities of blue in the cover, plus in the new one the girl seems to be one of the zombies that end up in the beach.
