In My Mailbox Take 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, another week has gone by and it has definitely been getting colder outside! What's better than curling up with a book under a blanket with hot chocolate with actual chocolate chunks in it in front of a blazing fire? Nothing unless you're buying some books at the bookstore! I got about, say, 16 books this week. Yay! I'm going to spend this week catching up on my reading now that mid terms are over in high school. I bet most of you are relieved you don't have to do those anymore. I passed them all and it's time to celebrate with some books!!!!! (P.S- There aren't a lot of alternate covers this week b/c there are many new books. Still, the original covers look awesome!!)
Kiss of Frost (Mythos Academy, #2)
Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep (Mythos Academy #2
 Logan Quinn was try­ing to kill me. My Spar­tan class­mate relent­lessly pur­sued me, swing­ing his sword at me over and over again, the shin­ing sil­ver blade inch­ing closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes prac­ti­cally glowed with the thrill of battle... I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Acad­emy, and I have no idea how I’m going to sur­vive the rest of the semes­ter. One day, I’m get­ting schooled in sword­play by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gor­geous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invis­i­ble archer in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties decides to use me for tar­get prac­tice. And now, I find out that some­one at the acad­emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword...

An evil presence is growing within Europe's royal bloodlines—and those aligned with the darkness threaten to topple the tsar. Suddenly Katerina's strength as a necromancer attracts attention from unwelcome sources . . . including two young men—George Alexandrovich, the tsar's standoffish middle son, who needs Katerina's help to safeguard Russia, even if he's repelled by her secret, and the dashing Prince Danilo, heir to the throne of Montenegro, to whom Katerina feels inexplicably drawn. The time has come for Katerina to embrace her power, but which side will she choose—and to whom will she give her heart?

Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well? I also received two free copies of books including...
