In My Mailbox (#3)


In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren to show what books everyone has been recieving or buying each week. 

Here's what I got this week:

For Review 

Shade - Jeri Smith Ready
(Released in UK on 2nd September 2010)

Like everyone born after the Shift, sixteen year-old Aura can see and talk to ghosts. She's always found this mysterious ability pretty annoying, wishing only that she could reverse it and have some peace. But when her boyfriend, Logan, dies unexpectedly, Aura is forced to reconsider her connections to the dead...

Devastated by Logan's sudden death, Aura realises that her ability to see ghosts might actually be a blessing. Surely a violet-hued spirit Logan is better than no Logan at all? But just when Aura is coming to terms with having a ghost for a boyfriend, she starts developing feelings for her new friend Zachary, who is understanding, supportive and, most of all, alive. Each boy holds a piece of her heart - as well as vital clues to the secret of the Shift - and it's time for Aura to choose between loving the living, or embracing the dead...

This is the first book that I have recieved for review since starting my blog so a big thanks to Jeri Smith Ready for getting me put on the list and also Simon and Schuster for sending me the book. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it lying infront of the door!


My lovely friend over at Rhiana Reads... sent me a couple of books that she had doubles of which were:

Della says: OMG! - Keris Stainton

Della’s over the moon when she kisses her long-standing crush at a party – but then she discovers her diary has disappeared...

When scans of embarrassing pages are sent to her mobile and appear on Facebook, Della’s distraught – how can she enjoy her first proper romance when someone, somewhere, knows all her deepest, darkest secrets?

 
 
Girl, 16. Five Star Fiasco - Sue Limb
 
The teenage world of Jess Jordon is looking characteristically chaotic: Mum has joined an online dating programme and has recruited Jess as advisor, while Jess' best friend Flora has a rich new boyfriend who Jess can't possibly keep up with. Then Jess' own boyfriend, Fred, does something unbelievably treacherous and spineless. Jess is becoming completely fed up with the male sex, and is beginning to think that the only reliable form of male is e-mail ...Never mind, there's Valentine's Day to look forward to. Fred is sure to make amends then. Isn't he?
 
 
Quite a mixture of genres there for me this week but I'm really looking forward to reading each of them.
