Mailbox Monday 3-23-15

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at To Be Continued and is now hosted at its own blog.

I just love used book stores. You can find such great deals, and I always come away from them with at least one book. This week, I bought two books, Inkdeath and Airborn.

Covers from Goodreads.

I won't post the description, because there are spoilers for the previous books in this series(keep that in mind if you click the link above).

I can't wait to delve back into this series. I've read it three times, and each time I've felt differently about it. I guess I'll have to see how my perspective has changed.

In the Inkworld books, words are power. They come alive, sucking you into stories and bringing characters into your world from their own stories. Different story worlds intertwine, and Meggie and her father find themselves caught up in a book that has seemed to haunt them for years--Inkheart.

Is that not the best premise ever?



Matt Cruse is a cabin boy on the Aurora, a huge airship that sails hundreds of feet above the ocean, ferrying wealthy passengers from city to city. It is the life Matt's always wanted; convinced he's lighter than air, he imagines himself as buoyant as the hydrium gas that powers his ship. One night he meets a dying balloonist who speaks of beautiful creatures drifting through the skies. It is only after Matt meets the balloonist's granddaughter that he realizes that the man's ravings may, in fact, have been true, and that the creatures are completely real and utterly mysterious.

In a swashbuckling adventure reminiscent of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson, Kenneth Oppel, author of the best-selling Silverwing trilogy, creates an imagined world in which the air is populated by transcontinental voyagers, pirates, and beings never before dreamed of by the humans who sail the skies.
