In my mailbox-"Touch of Frost" by Jennifer Estep

Hey everyone!

In My Mailbox is a book blogging internet meme started by Kristi over at The Story Siren. In My Mailbox is a meme where you talk about books you recieve in your mailbox, giveaways, books you bought at stores, borrowed from the library and etc!


My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy—a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why—especially since I should have been the one who died. . .

     Today I finally got this baby in my mailbox. I'm so stoked! There's a funny thing about this book though. About a month ago I was going gift shopping for my sister's upcoming birthday. Knowing that she really liked boarding-school, paranormal type YA books; I found the book "Kiss of Frost" at my grocery store. Yeah you heard right, my grocery store. So I got really excited and after reading the synopsis felt that even I wanted to read it after she was done with it. So I bought the book. When I got home I did a little researching to find out if the book was part of a series so that if it was I could buy her the sequel so she wouldn't have to wait. Well little did I know I had bought the sequel...yeah it was quite the shocker. On the picture of the book online it specifically said "sequel to touch of frost" and I immediately ran upstairs to see if that was written on the cover of the book and lo and behold it was. I felt so stupid and decided that I had nothing to do but by the first book. That was about a month ago and it FINALLY arrived today! Once I'm done with the other couple of books that I'm currently reading simultaneously I'm going to dive into this book. Oh yeah, didn't I give it to my sister? you're asking. Well I ended up giving her another present due to the whole predicament and lateness of my order. But it's alright, now I don't have to wait for the sequel if I end up diving into this book and loving it.
