In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s awesome. Every week, we all get a chance to tell everyone what new books we’ve gotten so that we can tell you guys and we can all drool and squee together! Huzzah for squees!
Good stuff this week, guys! I got some really exciting stuff from all over the place. Yay!
Starters: Starters, book 1, by Lissa Price (March 13, 2012 from Delacorte Books for Young Readers). So, this cover is pretty creepy, guys. But I think that isn’t necessarily a bad thing when you read the synopsis. You got: it sounds creepy awesome. In a future US, people between the ages of 20 and 60 have been wiped out by a war, and whoever is left can only scrounge for a living. Callie must take care of her brother and a friend, and so agrees to basically sell her body for possession by Elders–old people who want to feel young–in order to make some money. Of course, things are not as they seem and shizz goes down. Sounds GOOD.
Goddess Interrupted: Goddess Test, book 2, by Aimee Carter (March 27, 2012 from Harlequin Teen). The continuing sage of Kate and Henry. Can’t wait to catch up with them! There’s Persephone! And Tartarus! Yay!
The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green (January 10, 2012 from Dutton Juvenile). *Sigh* More cancer books. I’m going to get depressed, guys! But seriously, this is John Green we’re talking about here. I’ve never actually read any of his books (I know, I know!), but that changes REAL SOON. Because this book has been giving everyone the ugly sobs, and we all know I LOVE those. I can’t wait to read this one.
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, by Melissa Jensen (February 16, 2012 from Speak). A couple of weeks ago, Melissa Jensen was running a contest on Twitter for an ARC of her new book about a quiet, unassuming, art-loving girl Ella gets to crushing on her French tutor and big man on campus, Alex. It sounds really cute and wonderful and I can’t wait to read it. THANKS SO MUCH MELISSA!
That’s it for me this week, friends. Did you guys get anything awesome in your mailboxes this week?
