In My Mailbox (3)

I have to give my props over to Krist at The Story Siren for creating this great meme and Alea over at Pop Culture Junkie for inspiring it!!!

 Swappped

Bookmooch and swaptree were very good to me this week I got so many great books!!!


Title: Blue is for Nightmares
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Publication Date: November 2003
Genre: Mystery/Suspence
Pages: 283


  "I Know Your Secret . . ."

It started with weird e-mails and freaky phone calls. Now someone's leaving Drea white lilies-the same death lilies that have been showing up in Stacy's dreams. Everybody thinks it's just a twisted game . . . until another girl at school is brutally murdered.

There are no witnesses. Worst of all, no one has a perfect alibi. With everyone as a potential suspect, Stacy turns to the one secret weapon she can trust-the folk magic taught to her by her grandmother. Will Stacy's magic be strong enough to expose the true killer, or will the killer make her darkest nightmares come true?


I also bought a copy of Deadly Little Secret and I have been waiting for that book for so long, so now I have both her books!!!





Title: Love is Hell
Author: Scott Westerfeld, Melissa Marr, Justine Larbalestier,  Gabrielle Zevin, Laurie Faria Stolarz
Publication Date: November 2008
Genre: Romance, Paranormal
Pages: 272


In these supernatural stories by five of today's hottest writers—Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely), Scott Westerfeld (Specials), Justine Larbalestier (Magic or Madness), Gabrielle Zevin (Elsewhere), and Laurie Faria Stolarz (Blue is for Nightmares)—love may be twisted and turned around, but it's more potent than ever on its quest to conquer all.

From two students who let the power of attraction guide them to break the hard-and-fast rules of their world to the girl who falls hard for a good-looking ghost with a score to settle, the clever, quirky characters in this exciting collection will break your heart, then leave you believing in love more than ever.

 

  Woot! It has a Scott Westerfeld story and Melissa Marr, how exciting.

Lexie has always had a crush on Jake, her brother Colin's best friend. But she knows Jake thinks of her like a sister, and has never made a move. But when beautiful alpha girl Bree McKennis sets her sights on Jake, he has to come up with a plan to turn her down...without incurring the wrath of the most popular girl in school. That's when Colin comes up with the plan: Lexie can pretend to be Jake's girlfriend. But Lexie has never had a real boyfriend, let alone a pretend one! Can she manage to convince Jake that they're meant to be...and avoid getting killed by Bree McKennis? 





Title: Prom Nights from Hell
Author: Meg Cabot, Kim Harrison, Michele Jaffe,  Lauren Myracle, Stephenie Meyer
Publication Date: May 2007
Genre: Romance, paranormal
Pages: 320


In Prom Dates from Hell, bestselling authors Meg Cabot (How to Be Popular), Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), Lauren Myracle (ttyl), Michele Jaffe (Bad Kitty) and Kim Harrison (A Fistful of Charms) take bad prom dates to a whole new level -- a paranormally bad level. From vampires to grim reapers to a creepy update on the classic three-wishes-gone-terribly awry tale "The Monkey's Paw," these stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux can. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun. 




Yes I got two of these books. I said swaptree was good to me this week!!!



 Bought



Title: Deadly Little Lies
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Publication Date: December 2008
Genre: Mystery/Suspence, Romance
Pages: 272 




Until three months ago, everything in sixteen-year-old Camelia's life had been 
fairly ordinary: decent grades, an okay relationship with her parents, and a pretty cool part-time job at the art studio downtown. But when a mysterious boy named Ben starts junior year at her high school, Camelia's life becomes anything but ordinary.

Rumored to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend's accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. She's reluctant to believe he's trouble, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. Instead, she's inexplicably drawn to Ben.and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she is in danger, and that he can help-but can he be trusted? She knows he's hiding something... but he's not the only one with a secret.
 

I finally found time between school and volleyball to make it across the street to Barnes and Noble and by a book. I have been waiting for my BN to get this book in paperback and they finally do, and ive already finished it so I hope to review it soon. 



For Review

If I could add a sound effect to the next book in my In My Mailbox it would be a high pitched squeal-like scream!!!



Title: Hush Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publication Date: October 2009
Genre: Romance, paranormal
Pages: 400


For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.

With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.





Ahhhh it is impossible to express my excitement within this little sentence. I have been waiting for this book since the first time I saw the gorgeous cover, I'm a sucker for the color gray (go figure)!!! And I love the first sentence in the synopsis it just sounds so engaging and inviting!!!  I can't wait !!!
  




Im just adding this late because we forgot to check our mail yesterday so when I went to go see what why it was slightly open, you could imagine my suprise when I happen upon this!!!



Title: The Pace
Author: Shelena Shorts (I really love her name for some reason)
Publication Date: October 2009
Genre: Paranormal, Suspence, Romance
Pages: 302


Weston Wilson is not immortal and he is of this world. But, aging is not part of his existence, and eighteen-year-old Sophie Slone is determined to find out why. In doing so, she could also uncover something about her own life expectancy that she may not want to know. Suddenly, immortality will mean everything and nothing all at the same time.

Intensely fascinating and rich with determination, The Pace brings together romance, mystery, and suspense in a compelling bond that is sure to have readers asking for more.



This is another book that should be added to the high pitched squeal like scream worthy category. I am so excited for this book. This book and the Hush Hush in one week, I cant even comprehend the level of aawesomeness. And it is signed by Shelena Shorts. And it came with a bunch of cool bookmarks. What a great end to the week!!!
