In My Mailbox (36)

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Sadly the only books I order are those that are hard to find. The following books are from the library and bookstores.
Library:

Title: The Face1
Series: Fear Street (book 34)
Publication Date: 1996
Synopsis: "They say something horrible happened that day. But Martha can't remember any of it--not the smallest detail. They say it will come back to her in time. But someone wants her to remember now. She draws his face, over and over--the face of a dead boy. She can't control her hand. And she can't remember how he died. But she's going to find the answer."

Author: Jane Yolen with Bruce Coville
Title: Armageddon Summer2

Title: The Society of S4
Publication Date: 2007
Synopsis: "If you ever want to hide from the world, live in a small city, where everyone seems anonymous."

That's the advice of twelve-year-old Ariella Montero, who lives with her father in Saratoga Springs, New York, in a house haunted more by secrets than by memories. The Society of S traces her journey south, to Asheville and Savannah, and on to Florida, as she learns that everything she knows about her family is a lie."

Author: R.L. Stine
Title: Eye Candy5
Publication Date: 2004
Synopsis: "Lindy Sampson is a twenty-three-year-old New Yorker with a problem: She’s too beautiful. Guys are intimidated by her. Her roommate suggests Internet dating and writes a Personal ad for Lindy, calling her “Eye Candy.” The responses pour in. Suddenly, Lindy is dating four guys at once–and having the time of her life. Until she gets a terrifying note that warns: “Don’t say no, Lindy. Keep going out with me. I’ll mess you up if you ever say no.”

I went a little crazy this week with borrowing at the library. This week i have to books that are re-reads; The Face by R.L. Stine, I read this one a few years ago and haven't been able to get it off my mind. Let's hope that it's just as good as I remember it being *crosses fingers*. My other re-read is Armageddon Summer by Jane Yolen with Bruce Coville, I was very intrigued by the story the last time I read it and can't wait to see if I still like it.
Charmed Life, Eye Candy, and The Society of S are all first time sreads and I'm very excited to read and review them.
Well that's all for me this week in books. Cannot wait to see what everyone else got in their IMM.
