In My Mailbox (13)

So, it's been a while huh? Lol, so here is my IMM this week.

I "stole" this from the Story Siren. [Want to join in? Click HERE.]

So, I FINALLY got the Little, Brown Package I had been waiting for, for a month in the mail on Thursday! Yeah! And I also got a package for my "purchase" at Random Buzzers...The first two books in the Inheritance series (Yes, I feel like I'm the only person left, my age, who hasn't read Eragon yet...bahahaha)...take a look...

The Recieved:

Ash By: Malinda Lo (ARC/September 1, 2009)
[From B.O.B] "Pushed into indentured servitude for her stepmother in the City to pay off her father's debts, Ash is consumed with grief. She misses her family and her happy life at the edge of the Wood where old magic used to linger in the air like fairy breat. Her only joy comes from the brief, stolen walks in the woods with the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean. Ash's single, unspoken hope is that someday he might steal her away, as fairies are said to do.
But on the night that Ash meets Kaisa, the King's Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, from Kaisa she learns the art of the hunt, how to ride and track. Their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, but it grows and changes, and with it, Ash reawakens her capacity for love-and her desire to live.
Entrancing and romantic, Ash is an empowering retelling of cinderella about choosing life and love over solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepes grief."
I read this already, and you can find my review HERE!

Prophecy of the Sisters By: Michelle Zink
[From Amazon]:
An ancient prophecy divides two sisters-

One good...

One evil...

Who will prevail?

Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents' deaths, a boy, a book, and a lifetime of secrets.

Lia and Alice don't know whom they can trust.

They just know they can't trust each other.

YEAH!!! I am soo excited for this one :) The cover is shiny (but the stone angels are kinda scary).

The Hate List By: Jennifer Brown (ARC/September 1, 2009)

[From Amazon]: Five months ago, Valerie Leftman's boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets.

Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.

It looks awesome!

Fade to Blue By: Sean Beaudoin (ARC/August 1, 2009)

[From Amazon] Sophie Blue started wearing a black skirt and Midnight Noir lipstick on her last birthday. It was also the day her father disappeared. Or spontaneously combusted. Which is sort of bad timing, since a Popsicle truck with tinted windows has started circling the house.

Kenny Fade is a basketball god. His sneakers cost more than his Jeep. He's the guy all the ladies (and their mommas) want. Bad.

Sophie Blue and Kenny Fade don't have a thing in common. Aside from being reasonably sure they're losing their minds.

Acclaimed author Sean Beaudoin's wildly innovative novel combines uproarious humor with enough plot twists to fill a tube sock. Part thriller, part darkly comic philosophical discussion, and accompanied by a comic book interstitial, Fade to Blue is a whip-smart romp that keeps readers guessing until the last paragraph.
Sounds intense...haha...and it has comics in it I think!!

And then I also got an Eragon and Eldest, paperback versions. (Too lazy to put out the covers and summaries...but I'm sure most of you know what it's about)

So, what did you recieve this week?
