In My Mailbox (10)

In My Mailbox is memefied over at Kristi's blog. Check out what others got in terms of books this week!

This week was absolutely ridiculous. Lots of great trades, and PaperbackSwap and BookMooch were kind to me, AND I really really really need to stop buying discount books. Sheesh.

From a trade with Stephanie: :)
The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender
Confessions of a Serial Kisser by Wendelin van Draanen
Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George

Beige by Cecil Castellucci

Exiled from Canada to Los Angeles, Katy can't believe she is spending the summer with her father—punk name: the Rat—a recovered addict and drummer for the band Suck. Even though Katy feels abandoned by her mom, even though the Rat's place is a mess and he's not like anything she'd call a father, Kathy won't make a fuss. After all, she is a girl who is quiet and polite, a girl who smiles, a girl who is, well, beige. Or is she? From the author of BOY PROOF and THE QUEEN OF COOL comes an edgy L.A. novel full of humor, heart, and music.

I won this signed book from Free Book Friday for Teens. I think I have some sort of connection with Cecil Castellucci, for this is the third signed book of hers that I have won in my lifetime. Strange, no?

Kitty Raises Hell by Carrie Vaughn

I won this from a giveaway over on The Novel Bookworm's website. I haven't read the series but I've heard good things about it. Perhaps I should start? This is like the sixth book in the series, lol, so it might take me a while until I get to this one!

From BookMooch:

The Plague by Joanne Dahme
Need by Carrie Jones
Wherever Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten

These are actually from Kristi via BookMooch, so merci beaucoup. I look forward to reading them. :)

Numbers by Rachel Ward

Since her mother's death, fifteen-year-old Jem has kept a secret. When her eyes meet someone else's, a number pops into her head - the date on which they will die. Knowing that nothing lasts forever, Jem avoids relationships, but when she meets a boy called Spider, and they plan a day out together, her life takes a new twist and turn. Waiting for the London Eye, she sees everyone in the queue has the same number - something terrible is going to happen.

Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriott

Inside an ancient temple in the mountains, fifteen-year-old Zira trains in the martial arts to become a warrior priestess who can defend the faith of the Ruan people. Bearing a scar on her face from the fire that killed her parents, the orphaned Zira is taught to distrust the occupying Sedornes. Terror strikes when the forces of the tyrannical Sedorne king destroy the only home she knows. To survive, Zira must unravel the secrets of her identity, decide her people’s fate — and accept her growing feelings for a man who should be her enemy.
