In My Mailbox (40)

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:
Author: Kate Brian
Title: Private
Series: Private (book 1)
Publication Date: 2006
Synopsis: "Tradition, Honor, Excellence . . . and secrets so dark they're almost invisible.

Fifteen-year-old Reed Brennan wins a scholarship to Easton Academy -- the golden ticket away from her pill-popping mother and run-of-the-mill suburban life. But when she arrives on the beautiful, tradition-steeped campus of Easton, everyone is just a bit more sophisticated, a bit more gorgeous, and a lot wealthier than she ever thought possible. Reed realizes that even though she has been accepted to Easton, Easton has not accepted her. She feels like she's on the outside, looking in. Until she meets the Billings Girls."

Author: Kathleen Duey
Title: Skin Hunger
Series: A Resurrection of Magic (book 1)
Publication Date: 2007
Synopsis: "Sadima lives in a world where magic has been banned, leaving poor villagers prey to fakes and charlatans. A "magician" stole her family's few valuables and left Sadima's mother to die on the day Sadima was born. But vestiges of magic are hidden in old rhymes and hearth tales and in people like Sadima, who conceals her silent communication with animals for fear of rejection and ridicule. When rumors of her gift reach Somiss, a young nobleman obsessed with restoring magic, he sends Franklin, his lifelong servant, to find her. Sadima's joy at sharing her secret becomes love for the man she shares it with. But Franklin's irrevocable bond to the brilliant and dangerous Somiss traps her, too, and she faces a heartbreaking decision."

Author: Jack Higgins
Title: Sure Fire
Series: Rich and Jade (book1 )
Publication Date: 2006
Synopsis: "For twins Rich and Jade, their lives have just been turned upside down. When their mother is tragically killed in a car crash, their long-lost father, John Chance, appears to collect them at the funeral. He's a bachelor who lives on his own, and it's clear that Rich and Jade aren't welcome. But when Chance suddenly disappears, Rich and Jade uncover the truth: He's a spy. And now, whoever kidnapped their father is after them, too. Sure Fire is a gripping adventure from the master of the modern thriller."

Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz

Title: White is for Magic
Series: Blue Is for Nightmares (book 2)
Publication Date: 2004
Synopsis: "A year has passed since Stacey Brown saved her best friend from a horrible death. Now she's having nightmares again, haunted by ghosts of the brutally murdered . . . and by a crazed stalker. As she desperately casts healing spells, a new student named Jacob enters her world. Beautiful and mysterious, he reveals that he is also having dreams. To stop a killer, they must join together. But can Jacob be trusted? Or will this new love cause her darkest dreams to come true?"

This week I have decided to finally read White is for Magic, which I have been putting off for ages and to try Private. So far White is for Magic is pretty good.
Although, the book I'm most excited about reading this week would have to be Skin Hunger, I can't wait to start it. Sure Fire sounded intersting so I pick it up to round out my options for the remainder of the week.
Hope y'all had an awesome book week. :)
