In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren (and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) to showcase any books that I have bought or borrowed or won to read.

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles #1)
by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.
Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

13 To Life (13 To Life #1)
by Shannon Delany
Won from YA Book Reads Vampires vs. Werewolves week
Team Werewolf! :)

Everything about Jessie Gillmansen’s life changed when her mother died. Now even her hometown of Junction is changing.  Mysterious dark things are happening. All Jessie wants is to avoid more change. But showing a hot new guy around Junction High, she’s about to discover a whole new type of change. Pietr Rusakova is more than good looks and a fascinating accent—he’s a guy with a dangerous secret. And his very existence is sure to bring big trouble to Jessie’s small town.  It seems change is the one thing Jessie can’t avoid…

 These are the first books in two series that I've been really wanting to read. Can't wait to start!

  3. Thanks, I hope I enjoy these, too!

  4. LOVE your blog name-fabulous! I haven't read either book, but they are both in my to-read-pile. Looking forward to hearing what you think about them.

  5. Thanks. It was like I had an epiphany when I thought the name up. Just the perfect name for my blog, I thought.

  6. Ah both of those are on my TBR! I can't wait to read your thoughts on them.

  7. beautiful creatures was a good book a little slow at the begining but it did get better, and 13 to life looks good!
