In My Mailbox 147


This meme was started by Kristi of The Story Siren who was inspired by Alea from Pop Culture Junkie. Check out their blogs for more information. All summaries are from the book jackets unless otherwise stated.

 For review:

Between the Lines – Tammara Webber

Seventeen-year-old actress Emma is starring in her first major film, opposite Hollywood It Boy Reid. The exclusive nightclubs, snapping photographers and screaming fans are a normal part of his life, but it’s all new to Emma.

The rest of the cast befriend her, but Emma feels out of her depth. She’s grateful to fellow actor Graham for hi support and wonders if he wants something more – until she sees him sneaking out of beautiful Brooke’s bedroom one night...

Reid has no holds barred in his pursuit of Emma; he loves the thrill of the chase, but he’s also experiencing something new. Could he be genuinely falling for his co-star?

I’ve heard mixed things about Easy so I’m looking forward to seeing what I think of Tammara Webber’s series. Thanks Puffin!

Barely Breathing – Rebecca Donovan

Will the promise of a passionate love mend Emma’s broken heart?

The scandalous secrets of Emma’s past life have been revealed, but she still has so much to learn. Why did her mother leave all those years ago?

What really happened the night Emma’s father died – and were her memories of being happy just a dream?

The repercussions of one horrific night have affected everyone involved. Now Emma has the chance of a new love – but will she let the past haunt her for good?

Thanks again to Puffin. I actually don't own and haven’t read book one of this series, but it sounds interesting.

Monument 14 – Lammy Laybourne

This is the story of what happens when 14 kids are trapped inside a superstore in the town of Monument. Inside they have everything they could ever need, and with no adult supervision they can do whatever they want.

Sounds like fun.

It is.

Until they find out that the world outside is being destroyed...

I really love the sound of this. Thanks Hodder!

The Bunker Diary – Kevin Brooks

I can’t believe I fell for it.

It was still dark when I woke up this morning. As soon as my eyes opened I knew where I was.

A low-ceilinged rectangular building of whitewashed concrete. There are six little rooms along the main corridor.

There are no windows. No doors. The lift is the only way in our out. What’s he going to do to me? What am I going to do?

If I’m right, the lift will come down in five minutes.

It did.

Only this time it wasn’t empty...

YAY, A NEW KEVIN BROOKS! So freaking excited! Thanks Penguin!

Diary of a Mall Girl – Luisa Plaja

“I’m not even exaggerating. My life is absolutely over. It’s official.”

The mall is the heart of fifteen-year-old Molly’s suburban town. Most teens hang around with friends there, get their first job there, and experience their first kiss there. And Molly? She actually lives there, in the complex’s residential wing.

But living in a massive shopping centre isn’t as much fun as it sounds. That is, until mysterious twins Jewel and Jasper move into the flat upstairs. Suddenly life is a lot more exciting – and complicated. Will Molly get what she wants, or will it all come crashing down?

Find out the whole truth in Molly’s private diary!

I can’t wait to get stuck in to this! Thanks Luisa!

  1. I thought the response for Easy was mostly positive. And yet I'm just so hesitant to delve into the NA genre. Even though everyone is saying it's AH-MAZING. 'Barely Breathing' is the second in the "series", after 'Reason to Breathe'. It's also NA I believe. 'The Bunker Diary' sounds really interesting and the cover image reminds me of this game called 'Gemini Rue' (cameras and bare rooms). Monument 14 does sound really good! Enjoy. :)

    Check out the books I received! Birthday Edition~
