In My Mailbox (50)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

Firstly, I'm back. Sorry for not posting any reviews for almost two weeks. I was busy preparing and enjoying Lunar New Year.

Anyway here are the two books I've got in the first week of Lunar 2010

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do by Various Authors.

Niki Burnham, Terri Clark, Ellen Hopkins, and Lynda Sandoval give us four tales about the end of first love. How does anyone survive? Read on and find out. Each story showcases the writer’s signature style: Niki Burnham keeps it smart and sassy; Terri Clark brings a touch of fantasy; Ellen Hopkins tells her story in verse; and no one does funny like Lynda Sandoval. For teens looking for something to get them through the pain, this is just the prescription!

Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey.

The undead can really screw up your senior year ...

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

I'm reading Breaking Up Is So Hard To Do right now and it seems good, ain't to depressing but sad enough for you to feel the pain/confusion. I didn't even have a chance to glance at Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side because my cousin stole it the moment the book reached me. And she said it was awesome too, so I'm really excited to read it ^^

Thanks Caroline from Houghton Mifflin for these two books ^^
