In My Mailbox #23 - New Books This Week!

In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers share the books they have received each week.

For ReviewI've been excited for the release of Bright Young Things for quite a while now, so I was very happy when I received it for review. I've read so many good things about this one already! 



The year is 1929. New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: flappers and socialites seeking thrills and chasing dreams in the anything-goes era of the Roaring Twenties.

Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey escaped their small Midwestern town for New York's glittering metropolis. All Letty wants is to see her name in lights, but she quickly discovers Manhattan is filled with pretty girls who will do anything to be a star...

Cordelia is searching for the father she's never known, a man as infamous for his wild parties as he is for his shadowy schemes. Overnight, she enters a world more thrilling and glamorous than she ever could have imagined—and more dangerous. It's a life anyone would kill for...and someone will.

The only person Cordelia can trust is Astrid Donal, a flapper who seems to have it all: money, looks, and the love of Cordelia's brother, Charlie. But Astrid's perfect veneer hides a score of family secrets.

Across the vast lawns of Long Island, in the illicit speakeasies of Manhattan, and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls' fortunes will rise and fall—together and apart. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe comes an epic new series set in the dizzying last summer of the Jazz Age

Thanks to Puffin for the review copy.


Galley Grab:


Choker by Elizabeth Woods
I've wanted to read this one since I first heard about it months ago.  I love books about friendships gone wrong, and this sounds like a good one.  Just a warning: If you are planning on checking out Goodreads for this one, be careful of reviews. Somebody mentioned that a review on there has given away the ending of this one!

Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
I have never read Lisa McMann before, but I saw this one on Goodreads and was intrigued by the synopsis.  I don't really know what to expect though, so I'm hoping I like this one!
Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann


Bought:



Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink.
I've wanted to read this one ever since it first released, so I don't know why I waited so long to buy it. If you're already read this one, I'd love to know what you think!

Sony E-Reader PRS350 Pocket Touch in Pink.
I just couldn't wait to find it in my Christmas stocking! And anyway, I really don't think all those hints I was dropping were actually working. If you're reading I still have a lot more on my Christmas wishlist that you can get me!! ;-) It's about time I got one of these with all these great e-galley's I'm downloading, and this one is cute and pink. I love it!


Gift:  I received this book from my blogger friend Heidi at YA Bibliophile.  Thanks so much, Heidi! This one was high on my wishlist for 2011. Can't wait to read it!



Clarity "Claire" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch an object and the visions come to her. It's a gift.

And a curse.

When a teenage girl is found murdered, Claire's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case — but Claire is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Claire's brother — who has supernatural gifts of his own — becomes the prime suspect, and Claire can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Claire must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?

  12. Ohh! An e-reader! Congrats! I got a Nook a few months ago and I LOVE it. It's so bad though b/c you can shop for cheap books on there...at least the books don't take up shelf space though. Anyway, I see you got BYT. I hope you enjoy it; I thought it was good, but not as good as the Luxe series, which you need to read! You should download it to your e-reader! ;) Enjoy your books!
