In My Mailbox (49)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

Baby Proof by Emily Griffin.

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes....a baby carriage? Isnt that what all women want? Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. Its about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was- and that there is no possible compromise. Its about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, its about the things we will do- and wont do- for love.

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

Two books I've received in these weeks, both are from Australia. I've always had interested in Emily Griffin books especially Something Borrowed and Something Blue, and Baby Proof seems like a lovely read too. For Hush Hush, this is a final copy which has a different ending so I expect it to bring me something more exciting than the ARC.

Thanks Clair from S&S Aus and my cousin Ann for these books ^^

Have a great week reading new books everyone : )

I really want to know what the ending was in Hush,Hush in the ARC seeing as I only read the finished version. The curiosity eats away at me anytime someone mentions it lol.

Anyways, enjoy your books! :D
