In My Mailbox 90

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.

For review:

August – Bernard Beckett

Trapped in a car wreck, upside down, bleeding and in pain, Tristan and Grace are staring at death. When dawn breaks, they might be seem from the road and rescued, or not.

They wait, desperately holding onto life, unravelling the sequence of events that brought them together.

Tristan is a philosopher struggling with the question of free will. Grace’s life of hardship allows no place for such ideas. But a brief encounter changes their lives, setting the on a collision course with love and death and each other.

Part thriller, part love story, August is a compelling novel about will, freedom, and the fight for survival.

Thanks, Quercus. I’m really liking the sound of this.

Forever – Maggie Steifvater

“Grace,” I whispered. “This isn’t how it ends.”

Sam has always loved Grace. As a wolf, he watched her from afar. As a boy, he held her in his arms.

Now facing the possibility of a life without her, he will do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means facing his demons. Even if it risks everything he has.

Anything, as long as their love can survive...

I already bought myself a copy of this. You can see my review here. Thanks anyway to Scholastic. If you want this, drop me an email and I'll send it out to you.

Eight Keys – Suzanne LaFleur (ARC)

Before I used it, the key had infinite possibilities.

Eleven-year-old Elise fells stuck. Her school locker-buddy squashes her lunch and laughs at her, every day. She doesn’t want to go to school – and her best friend Franklin just makes things worse.

Now I was ready for something to be different.
Anything, really.

One day Elise discovers an incredible secret. A secret that just might help her unlock her past, and take a chance on the future.

I decided that tomorrow I would see what that key opened up. it had my name on it, after all...

Very excited for this as I loved Love, Aubrey. Thanks, Puffin!

Sister, Missing – Sophie McKenzie (ARC)

It’s two years after the events of Girl, Missing and life for sixteen-year-old Lauren is not getting any easier, as exam pressure and a recent family tragedy take their toll. Lauren’s birth mother takes her and her two sisters on holiday in the hope that some time together will help, but a few days into the holiday one of the sisters disappears, under circumstances very similar to those in which Lauren was taken years before. Can Lauren save her sister, and stop the nightmare happening all over again?

I still haven’t read anything by Sophie McKenzie – I really should. Thanks, S&S!
