In My Mailbox (28)

In My Mailbox is brought to us by The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea.

Just two books this week!!

For review:

Passing Strange by Daniel Waters - Paperback

Karen DeSonne always passed as a normal (if pale) teenager; with her friends, with her family, and at school. Passing cost her the love of her life. And now that Karen’s dead, she’s still passing—this time, as alive. Karen DeSonne just happens to be an extremely human-like zombie. Meanwhile, Karen’s dead friends have been fingered in a high-profile murder, causing a new round of antizombie regulations that have forced them into hiding. Karen soon learns that the “murder” that destroyed their non-life was a hoax, staged by Pete Martinsburg and his bioist zealots. Obtaining enough evidence to expose the fraud and prove her friends’ innocence means doing the unthinkable: becoming Pete’s girlfriend. Karen’s only hope is that the enemy never realizes who she really is—because the consequences would be worse than death.

(Summary from goodreads.)

I actually haven't read the first two books in this series, but I figure I'll just get them from the library, read them and then read and review this one. Cool? Cool. Oh, and if you want to see a huge picture of the hardcover cover, here you go.

And this one is a trade with Zoe for a copy of Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban 'cause I had an extra one with a UK cover (all my Harry Potter books do).

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer - ARC

While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Oh my gosh, this one sounds good. And Zoe is AWESOME and she gave me a bunch of bookmarks, too, even though she totally didn't have to.

Okay, that's it for me for this Sunday. What'd you guys get this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina

(Also! What did you think of my YA Lit Six post yesterday???)
