In My Mailbox (30)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

I was supposed to have a Sunday Special post up yesterday but I hung out at my cousin's house from dawn to dust I totally forgot. My bad. I'll try to make it up to you later. Anyway here are the books I got last week.

Lock And Key by Sarah Dessen.

Ruby is used to taking care of herself. But now she's living in a fancy new house with her sister Cora—a sister she hasn't seen in ten years—and her husband Jamie—creator of one of the most popular online networking sites. She's attending private school, wearing new clothes, and for the first time, feels the promise of a future that include college and her family. So why is she so wary? And what is Nate— the adorable and good-hearted boy next door— hiding behind his genial nature? As Ruby starts to see, there's a big difference between being given help, and being able to accept it. And sometimes, in order to save yourself, you've got to reach out to someone else.

The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy.

When the Prom Queen becomes your fairy godmother… Sixteen year old outsider, Jess Parker, gets the chance of a lifetime: an invitation to join a secret girl power society dedicated to defeating the mean girls of the world. The Cinderella Society guides all new recruits through its top secret ultimate life makeover. It’s all part of preparing them to face down the Wickeds and win. Determined not to let the Cindys down, Jess dives in with a passion. Finally, a chance to belong and show the world what she’s made of. … be careful what you wish for. Jess’s transformation wins her the heart of her dream crush and a shot at uber-popularity. Until the Wickeds–led by Jess’s arch enemy–begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers the real force behind her exclusive society. It’s a high stakes battle of good vs. evil, and the Cindys in power need Jess on special assignment. When the mission threatens to destroy her dream life come true, Jess is forced to choose between living a fairy tale and honoring the Sisterhood… and herself. What’s a girl to do when the glass slipper fits, but she doesn’t want to wear it anymore?

Angel Cake by Kathy Cassidy.

The new bestseller from teen queen Cathy Cassidy.

Anya used to dream of moving to Britain to start a brand-new life. But as she sits in a school where nobody understands her, she dreams of Polish summer skies and the place where she once belonged.

Then Anya meets bad boy Dan. He's no angel, but she's sure there's a sweeter side to him. And when things begin to fall apart, Anya realizes she's not alone - how can Dan be such bad news when being with him feels like heaven?

Cute books aren't they? I was most happy to receive The Cinderella Society because it's a 2010 title :) So far it's been my second 2010 book so I'm extremely excited about it. I won it from Kay Cassidy contest and she also sent me a note and a postcard, her handwriting is breathtaking, I'll show you soon. Angel cake is a book by an Australian author and it seems really nice. Lock and Key is too familiar I don't think I need to elaborate.

Hugs and kisses to Kay and Erin for sending me these lovely babies. ilu

Have another book-filled week~!
