In My Mailbox (59)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

Grace by Elizabeth Scott.
A fable of a terrifying near future by critically acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott. Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate. Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they've reached the final page.

Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti.

Lani and Erin are bonded for life. One thing that connects them is their fascination of fate. Lani wonders how much of our lives has already been decided and how much we can actually influence. Since the Unknown can unexpectedly change our lives forever, how much can we really control?

From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can't deny the intense connection they share. It feels like she's known him forever. She's not sure if he feels it, too. But it doesn't matter. Because Jason is Erin's boyfriend. Lani is determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than risk hurting her best friend.

How long can Lani keep running from the boy who might be her destiny?

Two more books from Penguin, both look and sound awesome. I trust Elizabeth Scott and Susane Colasanti to blow me away so I have very high hope for these too. Hopefully I won't be disappointed

Thanks Sara and Kristina from Penguin for these books, once again.

Grace sounds brilliant and it's been getting some pretty great reviews as well. Something Like Fate was just okay for me but I hope you'll love it.

Happy reading! :D
