In My Mailbox (28): Pit



Hey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was great, so much sleep! It was well needed since I have been staying late for my school's Pit Orchestra for our spring musical West Side Story. I was lucky enough to get some books this week and I am excited to dive into them! 

REVIEW:
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
*Special thanks to St. Martian's Griffin  


eBooks:
Dead of Night by Lynn Viehl
Hollyweird by Terri Clark
I Am (Not) The Walrus by Ed Briant
Torn by Stephanie Guerra 
The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry 

*Thank you to the publishers and Netgalley for these!

Koontz is great. I am learning that I read a lot of him in High School and have forgotten most of the stories. I think it's time to revisit some of the older novels.

Great Haul this week! Dead of Night looks good. I have to go check it out.
