In My Mailbox (13)

IMM is brought to you by Kristi at The Story Siren

I had yet another fabulous book week. Or maybe I'm just easy to please.


I bought Spells by Aprilynne Pike for a friend (& one to giveaway.) It is book 2 so I'll link to the goodreads page so no one gets spoiled.

A Love Story: Starring My Dead Best Friend is one I got as part of an ARC Tour hosted by Around The World Tours.
For months, Cass Meyer has heard her best friend Julia, a wannabe Broadway composer, whispering about a top-secret project. Then Julia is killed in a sudden car accident, and while Cass is still reeling from her death, Julia’s boyfriend and her other drama friends make it their mission to bring to fruition the nearly-completed secret project: a musical about an orphaned ninja princess entitled Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad.

Cass isn’t one of the drama people. She doesn’t feel at home with Julia’s drama friends, and she doesn’t see a place for her in the play. Things only get worse when she finds out that Heather Galloway, the girl who made her miserable all through middle school, has been cast as the ninja princess.

Cass can’t take a summer of swallowing her pride and painting sets, so she decides to follow her original plan for a cross-country road trip with Julia. Even if she has a touring bicycle instead of a driver’s license, and even if Julia’s ashes are coming along in Tupperware.

Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad is a story about friendship. About love. About traveling a thousand miles just to find yourself. About making peace with the past, and making sense of it. And it’s a story about the bloodiest high school musical one quiet suburb has ever seen.
The Fabulous Lena let me borrow her copy of Sea by Heidi R Kling.

Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother’s disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen-year old California girl Sienna Jones reluctantly travels with her psychiatrist father’s volunteer team to six-months post-tsunami Indonesia where she meets the scarred and soulful orphaned boy, Deni, who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.

She knows they can’t be together, so why can’t she stay away from him? And what about her old best friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why won’t her dad tell her the truth about her mother’s plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to finding answers.

And Sea’s real adventure begins.
The Swag:
The pin & wristband not on the paper, I got from Aprilynne Pike at the signing for Spells.
I joined the Splash Team. (The Street Team forForgive My Fins) The pin resides on my bag & the bookmark on with my collection. I think the mermark temporary tattoos are pretty fun!

What did you get this week?
