In My Mailbox (9)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

I had another great week with books! (My Dad doesn't know I have a blog like this and recently he has been asking nonstop how and where I got all these : )

Frenemies & Fakestatic by Alexa Young.

Best friends Avalon Greene and Halley Brandon have big plans for eighth grade. Not only are they coediting their school's fashion blog, but the celebration of their forever friendship is sure to be the blowout party of the year. But when the girls begin to disagreee about . . . well, everything, these two besties turn into full-blown worsties.

Halley and Avalon are reunited, and it feels so good. Or does it? As they begin weaving a tangled web of deception (with the best of intentions, of course), they discover just how hard it is to fake your way through anything—especially friendship.

These book came from the amazing Alexa Young. She was the first author to offer me books to review. And the fact that she didn't back out when she found out that I lived in Vietnam and HarperTeen never shipped overseas makes me love her more than ever. Theese books are really beautiful and they are signed too. I feel SO loved *grins*.

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols.

All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge — and over....

I've always wanted to read this book and thanks to Jennifer, my dream came true! It's the second MTV book I got so far, I hope I'll have more in the future. The copy is really special to me because it's the official one, I love how smooth it is when I touch it. And it's signed too. Aren't I too lucky?

Across The Pond by Storyheart.

Finding himself packed off to friends in the USA, fifteen-year-old English born Fred Squire is not happy. Then he meets Brittany.

Struggling with his feelings for Brit and the language, Fred is further confused when he meets Brit's flirtatious friend, Angel.

Escaping from a confrontation with Steve Harris, the neighborhood bully, Brit tells Fred her dark secret about Harris, and Fred's world is turned upside down.

Life continues to throw Fred a curveball when he catches a baseball worth a small fortune. Further run-ins with Harris, a crazy family BBQ, and a chase through a mall all add to Fred's American adventure.

"Brit and her Brit", know that their young love will be followed by heartache when Fred has to return to England. But not before some final twists in the tale.

Barry Eva (Storyheart) emailed me asking if I wanted to read and review the book and I thought it sounded interesting so I said yes. In the middle of reading this book right now. I will post the review as soon as possible ^^

Okay now it's your turn to show off your books ^^
