Monday Mailbox #7

Good evening readers!! Welcome to Monday Mailbox, where I can share the books I bought and received in the previous week.

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.


Speechless - Hannah Harrington

Thank you to Harlequin Teen for this copy! I really enjoy Hannah’s work, I loved her work in Saving June, so I am looking forward to this!

Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret. Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast-and nearly got someone killed.

Now Chelsea’s has taken a vow of silence-to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting everyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets if hard, not speaking up when she’s ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there’s strength in silence, and in new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way. People she never noticed before. A boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done. If only she can forgive herself.


Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) - Gena Showalter

Thank you Harlequin Teen for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book! My gosh, it’s so pretty!!! The cover I have is slightly different but I can’t find a copy of it online. Same picture, but a pretty green border instead.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real…. To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….


Confessions of an Angry Girl (Confessions #1) - Louise Rozett

Thank you Harlequin Teen for this Advanced Readers Copy. I am looking forward to this read.. it looks deeper than what it looks like on the blurb!

Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some CONFESSIONS to make… #1: I’m livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I’m allowed to be irate, don’t you?

#2: I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who “might” be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.

#3: High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and “seeing red” means being angry-get it?)

Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.


After (Once #4) - Morris Gleitzman

I bought this copy, and it was only after I bought it I realised it was the 4th book in a series! Heartbroken.. it looks incredible. So I am going to find the others and buy them!

In the fourth part of Felix’s story, continuing his adventures in World War Two, he faces perhaps his greatest challenge - to find hope when he’s lost almost everything, including his parents. As Europe goes through the final agonizing stages of the war, Felix struggles to reconcile hatred and healing. He’s helped by a new friend, but if he should lose her as well …


Between The Lines - Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

I bought this copy also! Jodi Picoult is one of my all time fave authors, so I just had to get this since it’s her first YA title and written with her own daughter!

What happens when happily ever after… isn’t?

Delilah hates school as much as she loves books. In fact, there’s one book in particular she can’t get enough of. If anyone knew how many times she has read and re-read the sweet little fairy tale she found in the library, especially the popular kids, she’d be sent to social Siberia… forever.

To Delilah, though, this fairy tale is more than just words on the page. Sure, there’s a handsome (well, okay, hot) prince, and a castle, and an evil villain, but it feels as if there’s something deeper going on. And one day, Delilah finds out there is. Turns out, this Prince Charming is real, and a certain fifteen-year-old loner has caught his eye. But they’re from two different worlds, and how can it ever possibly work?

So that is all from me this week, what did you receive this week? Let me know - leave your links in the comments section below!
