In My Mailbox

Hello there kids!

This has been a busy busy week, several events last weekend, lots of freebies (oh my gee bookmarks!!) and several books from last and this week :D
Check it out:

 I got Radiance from a giveaway... It went to one of my friends in the USA, then he sent me, but it took a nice while between us, so it's something I won back in August... And I can't find the exact link from where I got it, so I'll have to leave it link-less...
Radiance is a lovely book, I've almost finished it in two days, it's a middle-grade, tween book, light, nice and fun, I love Riley. :)

 Fall of Giants, the Brazilian edition. First impression: oh my. 900 pages. It's huge. But past the initial shock, it's Ken Follett, which I've been wanting to read for a while and it's historical fiction, which I love and I also love large books, so I'm feeling pretty good, really :)

 Where the river ends (free translation).. I admit I didn't look much into it yet, I got it as a gift from a friend, but it seems to be a drama or romance of some sort... Has anyone read it? Heard of it?
 The last Lady of the Fire (free translation) is a book by brazilian author Marcelo Paschoalin, who is a nice friend of mine and I happen to blog on his rpg-related blog Dark Fate RPG.
He also sent me a handful of signed bookmarkers <3

 Halo. I'm almost scared of reading this one.. The nice people at Ediouro Publisher sent it to me and I was really excited and then I read some bad reviews saying it was too soft or disconected... And kind of pushed me down... Now, is it good? I guess I'll find out!

Also, Therese Walsh sent me two copies of her The Last Will of Moira Leahy. The cover is just SO beautiful I just want to keep both to me haha... But fear not, I'll be good and give one away ;) I'll let you guys know :)
