In My Mailbox VII

I've borrowed the idea of this from the amazing The Story Siren. If you want more information check out her blog. All summaries are from the book jackets.

The Ant Colony - Jenny Valentine

“I came out of Camden Town station and vanished without a trace.”

“He says he wants to be alone! But I don’t believe him.”

For Sam, number 33 Georgiana Street is a place to disappear. For Bohemia, it’s a blip between her mum’s boyfriends. Old Isobel acts like she owns the place, although it actually belongs to Steve in the basement. Like ants, they scurry about their business, no questions asked.

But dig deep enough and you’ll find that everyone has something to hide…
I loved Jenny Valentine's first two novels so I have high hopes for this one.

City of Ashes - Cassandra Clare

With her mother in a coma and her father hell-bent on destroying the world, Clary Fray is dragged into New York City’s terrifying underworld of werewolves, demons and the mysterious Shadowhunters. Discovering the truth about her past was only beginning. Now the fate of the world rests on Clary’s shoulders, but can she master her new-found powers and control her feelings for a boy who can never be hers?

I'm reading City of Bones at the moment and and I'm near the end and it's brilliant! So I'm really looking forward to this

Zombie Queen of Newbury High - Amanda Ashby

A prom night Mia will never forget…

Quiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. Rob - super hot football god - has asked her to prom! Life couldn’t get any better. Enter Samantha - cheerleader queen and Miss Popularity - who has made it quite clear that Rob should be her prom date. Mia is desperate to make sure she doesn’t end up dumped in front of the whole school. So with prom in just a few days, she turns to Candice - her holistic, hypochondriac best friend - and decides to try a love spell to make Rob stay with her.
Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus on her whole class instead, and she is their zombie leader! At first, she loves all the attention. But when she learns from zombie hunter hottie Chase that her classmates will actually try to eat her in a few days, she’s not too thrilled. She’s sure she and Chase can figure something out, but in the meantime, she’s suggesting that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.

After reading You Are So undead To Me, I've been in the mood for zombies so I'm excited about reading this!

  8. I want The Ant Colony. I swear, all the other countries are getting some gooood books. LOL


  9. Just finished City of Ashes and am frantic for City of Glass. This book was way more fast paced and exciting than City of Bones. Your covers are totally different though. We have Jace on City of Bones and Clary on City of Ashes and who appears to be Simon on City of Glass. Interesting.

  10. I want Zombie Queen so bad...but no money no book. :(


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
