In My Mailbox (46)

Idea taken from The Story Siren

My mailbox looks pretty empty these weeks : *(

The Astonishing Adventures Of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga.

Fanboy has never had it good, but lately his sophomore year is turning out to be its own special hell. The bullies have made him their favorite target, his best (and only) friend seems headed for the dark side (sports and popularity), and his pregnant mother and the step-fascist are eagerly awaiting the birth of the alien life form known as Fanboy’s new little brother or sister. Fanboy, though, has a secret: a graphic novel he’s been working on without telling anyone, a graphic novel that he is convinced will lead to publication, fame, and—most important of all—a way out of the crappy little town he lives in and all the people that make it hell for him. When Fanboy meets Kyra, a.k.a. Goth Girl, he finds an outrageous, cynical girl who shares his love of comics as well as his hatred for jocks and bullies. Fanboy can’t resist someone who actually seems to understand him, and soon he finds himself willing to heed her advice—to ignore or crush anyone who stands in his way.

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel.

Things have changed for Ever since she met her beloved Damen - not least because she's got a whole new set of powers, courtesy of her new Immortal status. Just as she's getting stronger, though, Damen seems to be weakening. Panicked at the thought of losing him, Ever finds a path to the in-between world known as Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen's tortured past. But in searching for a cure for him, Ever accidentally discovers a way to twist time so she can save her family from the accident that killed them. It's all she's ever wanted - but so is Damen. And Ever must choose between them...

I've read Goth Girl Rising and it's so fantastic I kept wondering how the prequel was, so I filled a requested and got a shiny hardcover. I also got the sequel of Evermore, which I just read and liked more than the first book. I'm expecting some few more books in the next weeks so hopefully there will be more in the mailbox next time ^^

Thanks Jennifer from Houghton Mifflin and Sue from PanMacMillan for these two books :-)

So how was your book week?
