In My Mailbox 110


This meme was started by the fabulous Kristi who was inspired by Alea. Check out their blogs for more information. All summaries are from the book jackets unless otherwise stated.

For Review:

The Kissing Game – Aidan Chambers

Prepare to be amazed, enchanted and to gasp with shock.

Delve into these Stories of Defiance – moments in life, realisations, insights and sudden revelations.

Absorb yourself in flash fictions – very short but complete stories that reveal, as in a flash of light, a moment of awkward truth in the life of their characters.

I love flash fiction so I’m really lokking forward to this. Thanks, RHCB!

A Million Suns – Beth Revis

Trapped on board the spaceship Godspeed, Amy trusts no one.

The ship’s ruler is dead and a rebellion threatens. Amy wants to help Elder as he tries to take charge, btu she’s torn between her feelings for him and the chaos that’s pulling everything apart. As more harrowing discoveries are made about Godspeed, Amy is caught in a desperate race to uncover its secrets. Only one thing is certain.

They have to get off this ship.

I loved Across the Universe so I’m looking forward to this. I do wish the covers hadn’t been changed though – they were so beautiful, and now, this. Thanks, Razorbill.

Truth or Dare: You’re invited to a Creepover... – PJ Night

Go to sleep, if you dare, because you’re invited to a Creepover!

During a round of Truth or Dare, Abby Miller confesses her crush on Jake Chilson. The only people who know her secret are her friends at the sleepover – and whoever sent her a text message in the middle of the night warning her to stay away from Jake...or else!

But Abby isn;t going to stay away from Jake, especially not after he asks her to the school dance.

As the night of the dance comes closer, some very creepy things start happening to Abby. Is it a jealous classmate or could it be a ghost?

This sounds very cute and fun. Thanks, Atom!

Uglies – Scott Westerfeld

Tally can’t wait to turn sixteen and become Pretty. Sixteen is the magic numbe rthat brings a transformation from a repellent Ugly into a stunningly attractive Pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks, Tally will be there.

But Tally’s new friend, Shay, isnt sure she wants to be Pretty. She’d rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally leanrs about a whole new side of the Pretty world – and it isnt very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn Pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

One of my favourite series’ EVER is being re-covered again at the end of the month. The only thing I’m not too keen on is the Hunger Games-related tagline – it slightly annoys me for some reason... Thanks, S&S!

All These Things I’ve Done – Gabrielle Zevin

For Anya, love will become a life-or-death choice...

New York 2082. When Anya is arrested for attempted murder, the District Attorney offers her a choice: stay away from his son or watch helplessly as he destroys her family. it should be a straightforward decision. Except that the DA’s son is the boy Anya loves, and her family is at the dark heart of the city’s criminal underworld.

Anya must choose between love and loyalty, knowing that whatever she decides will have shatterng consequences: heartbreak or a gangland war that will tear the city apart.

SO excited for this! I love Gabrielle Zevin’s earlier novels. Thanks, Macmillan!

  10. Ooo I really like that cover for AMS, and I can't believe that they're re-covering the Uglies novels again. I liked the originals (and I LOVE the original trilogy).

    Great books and happy reading!
