Monday Mailbox #6

Good evening readers!! Welcome to Monday Mailbox, where I can share the books I bought and received in the previous week. In this weeks case, it’s books I received and bought in the last TWO weeks!

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia from A girl and her books and The Printed Page. In the summer of 2010 Marcia decided she needed a change in hosting and didn’t want to rely on one blogger alone to do it because its a lot of work so she decided to put Mailbox Monday on tour and so far with great success it has made monthly stops at more then a dozen blogs and this year is booked until the end.


Everything Left Unsaid - Jessica Davidson

Thank you to Pan Macmillan Australia! I am currently reading this at the moment, and it’s worth the hype so far. Plus, it’s nice to be reading a YA book written by an Aussie author. Heaps relatable!

Tai and Juliet have been best friends forever – since they met at kindy and decided to get married in first grade. They love music, beach walks, energy drinks and, they are slowly discovering, each other. Until Tai gets sick. And not everything you wish for can come true. A poignant story of first love, hope, grief, family, and the twistedness of life.


The Traitors - Tom Becker

Thank you Scholastic UK for this copy! I am looking forward to reading this!

Adam has betrayed his best friend and now he must face the consequences. His punishment is 274 years in the Dial, a prison in a notime world, where teenage traitors are forced to atone for their crime. It’s a terrible place, ruled over by a cruel despot, where every day is a struggle for survival - and escape.

Legend has it that only one person has fled the Colditz-like prison. Nobody knows if he made it back to the real world, but he left behind a ray of hope that has reached through the years. Soon Adam is caught up in a deadly plan to escape. But in a world full of traitors, you can trust no one.


Ransomwood - Sherryl Jordan

Thank you Scholastic NZ for this book. I absolutely adore the cover of this book (so sweet) and the plot sounds so different and interesting.. I am looking forward to reading this, it’s received amazing reviews!

Spurned by her lover, and with her uncle threatening to
marry her off to his odious widowed brother, Gwenifer is
almost relieved to be sent away to escort the magistrate’s
old, blind mother to Ransomwood, where the tears of the
statue of the Holy Mother are said to have healing qualities.

Together with Harry, the village halfwit, who is escaping a sentence of hanging for being in charge of an ox that trampled a child almost to death, they embark on a perilous journey … each of them looking for a different kind of healing.

When It Happens - Susane Colasanti

Thank you Scholastic UK for this book. I’ve already started to read this book and it’s super cute so far!! Brings me back to my own teen years!

An off-the-wall love story told in two voices. Straight-laced Sara dreams of two things: getting into her first-choice university and finding true love. Rock-loving slacker Tobey also dreams of two things: winning Battle of the Bands – and winning Sara. He is determined to make her fall in love with him. Tobey’s quirky wit and big blue eyes are hard for Sara to ignore. But can a scruffy rock-star wannabe ever win the heart of a girl who’s both beautiful and brainy? Sara and Tobey’s intense connection will have you rooting for them from the very minute they meet!


Two Weeks’ Notice (Revivalist #2) - Rachel Caine

Thank you Penguin Australia for this book. I haven’t read the first book in this series yet (Working Stiff), however I do own it, so I really need to get around to these books - they look great!

After dying and being revived with the experimental drug Returne, Bryn Davis is theoretically free to live her unlife—with regular doses to keep her going. But Bryn knows that the government has every intention of keeping a tight lid on Pharmadene’s life-altering discovery, no matter the cost.

And when some of the members of a support group for Returne addicts suddenly disappear, Bryn begins to wonder if the government is methodically removing a threat to their security, or if some unknown enemy has decided to run the zombies into the ground…
