In My Mailbox (14) + Update

In My Mailbox:


:'( It's kind of depressing. Not even from the library. I suppose I should see the silver lining and think of all the books I need to read in my pile already, which is true. But still...

Oh wait! Did get an e-book to review! :D

The Siren by Kiera Cass
"You must never do anything that might expose our secret. This means that, in general, you cannot form close bonds with humans. You can speak to us, and you can always commune with the Ocean, but you are deadly to humans. You are, essentially, a weapon. A very beautiful weapon. I won't lie to you, it can be a lonely existence, but once you are done, you get to live. All you have to give, for now, is obedience and time..."

The same speech has been given hundreds of times to hundreds of beautiful girls who enter the sisterhood of sirens. Kahlen has lived by these rules for years now, patiently waiting for the life she can call her own. But when Akinli, a human, enters her world, she can't bring herself to live by the rules anymore. Suddenly the life she's been waiting for doesn't seem nearly as important as the one she's living now.

I actually don't have much experience reading e-books, so that should be interesting. I'll have to not wear contacts because I've tried wearing contacts and staring at a computer screen for a long time and the two do not mix.


Also, you may have noticed that we've been doing some tweaking to the review system, here at A Flight of Minds. We're keeping our shelves because we love our shelves dearly and even just added half shelves. We have added First Impressions, Final Impressions, and Favourite Character though. And we're hoping to add Favourite Quote also in the near future.

If you have any suggestions in adding to our review system, we'd love to know! Or if you guys think the First/Final Impressions things is terrible, we'd also love to hear from you. (Although if you can do it kindly, that'd also be appreciated. We have delicate egos.)

  1. Haha. I can't wait for the review on this e-book from you (:

    I only got about five books from the library which I have barely touched =/

  2. Hurrah for half shelves. I really like the idea of first final impressions and favorite quote.

    Have fun with your ebook :-)

  3. Now you'll have time to catch up on all your TBR. I really like your review system. The shelves are cute(:

  4. I'm still trying to get used to the shelves. It's so hard! Lol, hope you enjoy your e-book! I have a hard time with reading online so I don't at all.

  5. Your ebook looks awesome :)

    And yeah for new reviewing :) It's always nice to see more thoughts on books.

  6. So what exactly is she? An alien or some type of supernatural?


Say anything! We'd love to hear what you think. :)
