In My Mailbox Vol. 8


Welcome to In My Mailbox! You can find official information like how to participate, why it was started and other goodies about IMM on the IMM Page @ The Story Siren




E-books





















Synopsis : New Hampshire high school junior Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet. . . 


Kat purchased this one from Amazon.com

Used Bookstore





















Synopsis : The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud tells the haunting story of a young man who narrowly survives a terrible car wreck that kills his little brother. Years later, the brothers’ bond remains so strong that it transcends the normal boundaries separating life and death. 

I read Ben Sherwood's The Man Who Ate The Boeing 747 in high school and I was blown away at how much I liked a book about "adults". I just learned that he wrote this too.  You might also know it as the book based on that movie that with Zefron that kept playing that B.O.B song in the trailer. 





















Synopsis: Here’s the deal: Aunt Peg, the New York artist and the person Ginny Blackstone depended on to make her life interesting, took off to Europe without a word three years ago. Aside from a few postcards, Ginny hasn’t heard much. Then she gets a horrible phone call that changes everything. But the story is only beginning. Soon after, Ginny receives one little blue envelope from Aunt Peg containing a thousand dollars and some very strange instructions…

I've been following Maureen on twitter and tumblr. She seems pretty interesting and funny. The book was just 2.50 so I figured why not ?


Barnes and Nobles






Synopsis : The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl.


What !? Can you believe I bought a new book from a bookstore ? I did. . .  but I had a 30 % off coupon and 10% off with the Barnes and Nobles membership  (the free two month trial that is)

Side Note: I love going to the  bookstore and seeing the physical version of books. Dearly Departed  by Lia Habel in hardcover is so pretty.

  16. I really want to read Charlie St. Cloud. The movie is amazing, so the book must be pretty good as well. And I could actually buy it only for the cover... Zac Efron is just dreamy.

  17. My nine year old daughter is half-in-love with Zac Efron ever since HSM days - she's been bugging me to get Charlie St Cloud on dvd - I'd probably look for that sometime soon. Glad to see you have the book - let me know what you think about it.
