In My Mailbox!!!

Dudes and dudettes, welcome to my first in my mailbox post. Although, technically, it's more like an in my post office thing, because I have a PO Box, not a technical mailbox, but, hey, it works! Now, it's probably not going to be a regular thing, simply because I don't get books that often, but it's cool while it lasts, right?

So the books I got are:

Poseur: The Good, the Fab and the Ugly by Rachel Maude
(description from Amazon.com)

Fashion isn't everything.

It's the only thing.

Halloween comes to Winston Prep and the newly named teen fashion label POSEUR introduces this season's must-have accessory: a red-hot handbag called the Trick-or-Treater. But whose design is sweetest? Janie, Petra, Melissa, and Charlotte all insist: Mine. You see the problem?

Good thing, then, for the sweetness of revenge. Time to dust off that costume and put your best mask forward. 'Tis the season for candy, conflict, and couture.


The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks:
(from amazon.com as well)

In his 14th book, bestselling author Nicholas Sparks tells the unforgettable story of a man whose brushes with death lead him to the love of his life.

Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

So the Posseur novel, which was a holiday giveaway thing from Book Divas, isn't my usual thing, but hey, I'll try it. The Lucky One, I'm really excited about. It looks really good. And thanks to the friend I suckered - ahem, I mean, convinced to join Book Divas to get me a free book. Poor guy...

Since I went to the library today (technically yesterday because it's after midnight, but who's splitting hairs that fine?), look for a long post about all the books I got there. There's a lot. Yay!!!

Okay, so that's it. My first In My Mailbox post. That was fun.

Happy reading, guys.

Love, Laina.
