In My Mailbox (6/29 - 7/4)

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

I won this from, and it's signed too. Yay! I think the cover is so pretty. And the plot sounds amazing as well. There is a picture of a fortune cookie on the back cover, that I totally wasn't expecting to be there when I turned it over. It kind of makes me laugh because it seems so random compared to the front. I'm sure there's significance though, and I can't wait to see what it is :)

Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

The summary of this one sounds so different and interesting. I'm hoping it'll be as good as I think it will. I've only read one of Maureen Johnson's other books (and it's the one that I only know of a few other people who've read it - The Bermudez Triangle. Most people seem to have read her other books.) I really enjoyed The Bermudez Triangle though, so I've definitely got high expectations for this one.

Sofi Mendoza's Guide to Getting Lost in Mexico by Malin Alegria

Found this in the $3 bargain books at Borders, and couldn't resist! I'm not a huge fan of the cover, but I picked it up and looked it over anyway. The plot sounds really interesting, and for $3 I figured it's worth a shot!

The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti

While I wasn't the biggest fan of the first Deb Caletti book I read (The Queen of Everything), you guys urged me to try some of her other books. This is one that I've been really interested in reading since I first heard of it, so I was excited when I also found it in the $3 bargain bin at Borders. I snatched it up right away. I'm really hoping that I'll like it, because I can already relate to the main character in the fact that I have panic disorder as well. I'm not sure if it'll be anything like Jade's in the book, so I'm looking forward to reading about it.

What great books did you all get this week?

Hey, I just noticed we spell our names the same! How cool is that, considering most spell it with 2 "N"s. Fairy Tale, Suite Scarlett, and The Nature of Jade are all ones I've been wanting to read! The other sounds good too though. Happy reading!

I've also been really curious about "The Nature of Jade" as I have panic disorder as well. I'll be looking forward to your review of it!
