In My Mailbox (11)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

The books I received in my birthday week,  they're super cool to me because they feel like real presents ^^ (I'm so surprised I've not run out of books for In My Mailbox posts yet, it's a good sign right?)


Evermore by Alyson Noel.

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

I know I'm the slowest one on earth because everyone has already read this one and I just got the book. But I'm still happy cause I'm lucky enough to get a copy even though Alyson's publicist doesn't usually send review copies overseas. I've heard mixed reviews of Evermore, but I'm still into it, and will try to read with no bias :)
Thanks Katy so much for the book<3


The Dust Of 100 Dogs by A.S King

In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with "the dust of one hundred dogs," dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human body-with her memories intact.

Now she's a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.

A beautiful signed copy from Amy. Ain't I loved so much by the authors? LOL jk. I love this book. Seriously, who isn't in love with dogs? And pirates? That's just too awesome to miss. This is my very first book published by Flux too ^^


Spring Breakup by Stephanie Hale.

Aspen Brooks trades in sand between her toes for shopping on The Strip when she agrees to go to Las Vegas for spring break with her boyfriend, Rand, her bff, Angel, and Angel's bf, Lucas. Their hotel is hosting the Miss Teen Queen Pageant and surgically enhanced beauty contestants are everywhere. But when Miss Illinois goes AWOL, it's up to Aspen to represent her home state and find out what's really going on. Even if it means putting down the suntan lotion and ignoring Angel's meltdown over breaking up with Lucas . . .

I won this book from a contest at Books Boys Buzz. I've not read the other two, but hopefully it doesn't prevent me from enjoying this one. This book is beyond cute. Just a look at it and you already feel the spring is all over here ; )


Wish me a better next week and I'll wish you the same. Happy reading and reviewing everyone~!!!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
