In My Mailbox (5/4 - 5/9)

I still think the mail is being really slow lately. Either that, or people aren't really sending me things when they say they are. Hmm... Needless to say, I had a slow week. But that's alright because I've still got a ton to catch up on, and I'm really excited about the two books that I did get :)


Beauty Queen
Linda Glovach

I felt the prick of the needle, but only for a second, because this great rush of warmth quickly followed, encompassing my whole body from my toes right up to the top hair on my head. I couldn't move for a minute as she guided the needle in and out of my vein. When she was done, I felt like I had entered heaven. I looked in the mirror and felt beautiful, confident. I felt this great peace, at last, a warmth, and I knew that everything was going to be okay- and really always had been. Like time had stopped and I was floating on a cloud.

Something, Maybe
Elizabeth Scott

Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar...and that's just how she likes it.

Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants -- only what she wants may not be what she needs....

Once again, Elizabeth Scott has created a world so painfully funny and a cast of characters so heartbreakingly real that you'll love being a part of it from unexpected start to triumphant finish.

Every time I go to the bookstore, I pick up Something,Maybe and read the jacket. I'm going to have to buckle and buy it!

That Beauty Queen cover is creepy. Am I the only one who thinks it's creepy? *shudder*

Everyone is raving about Something, Maybe.. I didn't think it would be a book that interested me, but I might just have to give it a chance. ;)
