Sunday Post (01)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

So this is my first Sunday post! I really should be studying for my last final tomorrow, but I just wanted to take a little break (: I’m so excited to be done!! And than I can read all my books (because my TBR list is getting a little excessive haah)! Hope everyone isn’t too crazy busy with the holidays and is enjoying the hustle and bustle. (I know I’m enjoying the holiday baking!) I watched Love Actually with some friends a couple nights ago so now it really feels like the Christmas season (:

BOOK HAUL

✖ The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig

“Arabella Dempsey’s dear friend Jane Austen warned her against teaching. But Miss Climpson’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies seems the perfect place for Arabella to claim her independence while keeping an eye on her younger sisters nearby. Just before Christmas, she accepts a position at the quiet girls’ school in Bath, expecting to face nothing more exciting than conducting the annual Christmas recital. She hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats and international spies…

Reginald “Turnip” Fitzhugh—often mistaken for the elusive spy known as the Pink Carnation—has blundered into danger before. But when he blunders into Miss Arabella Dempsey, it never occurs to him that she might be trouble. When Turnip and Arabella stumble upon a beautifully wrapped Christmas pudding with a cryptic message written in French, “Meet me at Farley Castle”, the unlikely vehicle for intrigue launches the pair on a Yuletide adventure that ranges from the Austens’ modest drawing room to the awe-inspiring estate of the Dukes of Dovedale, where the Dowager Duchess is hosting the most anticipated event of the year: an elaborate 12-day Christmas celebration. Will they find poinsettias or peril, dancing or danger? And is it possible that the fate of the British Empire rests in Arabella and Turnip’s hands, in the form of a festive Christmas pudding?”

Got this from library, it’s my holiday themed, Jane Austen-esque, mystery-solving, historical romance! Yay! It sounds so cute. I haven’t actually read any of the other books in the series (The Secret History of the Pink Carnation) but I do love holiday themed romance so yeaaa, haha

Angelfall by Susan Ee
“It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.”

Another one from the library! I’ve had this one on my wait list for a while so I’m excited to read this. I’ve really only heard great things and it just sounds really interesting.
