Whats in my Mail Box (Wk 16)

For Review
In My Mailbox was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren! In My Mailbox is a way to share the books you received each week.

Beth has always been “The Beast”—that’s what everyone at school calls her because of her awkward height, facial scars, and thick glasses. Beth’s only friend is geeky, golden-haired Scott. That is, until she’s selected to be her choir’s soprano soloist, and receives the makeover that will change her life forever.
When Beth’s choir travels to Switzerland, she meets Derek: pale, brooding, totally dreamy. Derek’s untethered passion—for music, and for Beth—leaves her breathless. Because in Derek’s eyes? She’s not The Beast, she’s The Beauty.
When Beth comes home, Scott, her best friend in the world, makes a confession that leaves her completely torn. Should she stand by sweet, steady Scott or follow the dangerous, intense new feelings she has for Derek?
The closer Beth gets to Derek, the further away he seems. Then Beth discovers that Derek’s been hiding a dark secret from her …one that could shatter everything.

I'd gotten this recently from a contest I had one. But this copy is from the International Book Tours. I'm currently just finishing the last 20 pages off, and am literally bawling my eyes out. It's so emotional. Expect my review up, early this week.

Shamira is considered an outcast by most, but little do they know that she is on a mission. Kids on Mars are disappearing, but Shamira decides to use the criminals most unlikely weapons against them the very kids of which they have captured. In order to succeed, she is forced to trust another, something she is afraid to do. However, Valens, her connection to the underworld of her enemy, proves to be a useful ally. Time is slipping, and so is her control on the power that resides within her. But in order to save her brother's life, she is willing to risk it all.

I got this one, thanks to the author :) I've read the first three chapters, and so far I'm liking it.

Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.)

Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?

I've seen the third book,Jealousy on everybody's WOW lately. So I decided to pick up a copy of the first book and see how I like it :)

Stuff I Received, But Don't Have Photographs/Images Of
- 1 Shadow Hills Book Mark (it came with last week review copy of the Shadow Hills)
- 2 Teens Read & Write Book Mark
- 1 Japanese Children Book (Host Sister Gave me to translate :) )
Book Trailers
