A Stuffed Mailbox

I received some fall releases today that I am eager to get to:



Wanderlust by Lucy Silag
Possession by Nancy Holfer
After by Amy Efaw
ArchEnemy by Frank Beddor (!!!)
Hold Still by Nina LaCour
Fire by Kristin Cashore

This is a great load--I'm especially excited to read ArchEnemy, the final book in Frank Beddor's Looking Glass trilogy, which is a very, very awesome retelling of the tale Alice in Wonderland, centered upon the power of imagination. If you haven't read the prior books, The Looking Glass Wars and Seeing Redd, I HIGHLY reccomend them!

Also, can anyone tell me a little more about Fire? I see that it's prequel--do we have any more info than that?

I love the Beddor books. Hope I can get my hands on this one. It seems like I've been waiting forever for this third book. They are sooo good. Congrats and great haul!

I just read Fire and it was amazing!! It's a prequel, but it really doesn't have too much overlap with Graceling. Enjoy it!

My fantasy book group LOVED the Frank Beddor series and have been dying to read the third! Can't wait to see what you think of it. ArchEnemy...ooh that tells you so much!!

::hand slap:: that's for not knowing about Fire. I'm letting you off lightly this time only because of ArchEnemy! J/K!
