In My Mailbox: Week 87

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi at The Story Siren.

For Review:

The Candidates (Delcroix Academy #1) by Inara Scott (I'm reading this one right now, and it's so good so far!)
Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa M. Klein  (Looks fantastic!)
Where the Truth Lies by Jessica Warman (So does this one!)
Secondhand Charm by Julie Berry (Love the sound of this one!)
The Ivy by Lauren Kunze and Rina Onur (My THIRD copy of this book (first two were ARCS and one was given away), so I'm not really sure what I'll do with this one, but I have to say the hardcover is SO much prettier than I was expecting. Also, if you haven't read this book yet, what are you waiting for? It's AMAZING!)
Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales (I've heard so many good things about this one, so I'm hoping it will live up to all the hype.)
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon  (Looks good!)
Amigas #2: Lights, Camera, Quince! by Veronica Chambers (I really liked the prequel to this one.)
The Aristobrats by Jennifer Solow (Looks cute and it's supposedly the ant-clique, which is cool.)
Milo: Sticky Notes and Brain Freeze by Alan Silberberg (Surprise review copy, and it looks quite good!)
The Snowflake by Jamie Carie (Not my typical type of read but it looks cute!)

Okay, I admit it, I got a little crazy at the library this week, but I had too because there were just too many good AND new books there! :)

Anyhow, here's the official list...

From Library:

Lost for Words by Alice Kuipers
You by Charles Benoit
After the Kiss by Terra Elan McVoy
Dragonfly by Julia Golding
John Belushi Is Dead by Kathy Charles
Pretty Dead by Francesca Lia Block
Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood
Anyhow, I had such a great book week! Don't you think? Though I have to admit, I have no clue how I'm going to be able to read all my library books with school and everything, but I guess I can make time. :)

In other news, I was asked by Lauren at Shooting Star Mag's to let you all know that Leave a Mark (a great book auction website that's proceeds go to charity) has started up again, so head on over here to check it out Also, she's needs help with another event she's hosting, so here's all the info straight from her:

"I'm a freelance publicist working with Catherine Ryan Hyde on her latest YA release, Jumpstart the World, which comes out Oct. 12. As it deals with transgender themes, we are hosting a week of auctions on my blog: All the money raised will be donated to GLSEN: an LGBT charity. This will be the week of Oct. 11 (the release week and Oct. 11 is National Coming Out Day). I have someone working on a button so you can post that once it's available as well....
Obviously we would like to spread the word about this upcoming event and doing so, I wanted to get the ball rolling with some September giveaways called Pay it Forward. Catherine is the author of the well-known book that became the movie Pay it Forward. The idea is to have people hold a giveaway on their blog letting people know about Jumpstart the World and the upcoming auctions for GLSEN. The giveaway should only last a week or so at the most, because we want the winner (if they have a blog) to then host a giveaway of their own...hence Pay it Forward. People can host giveaways regardless if they win though and Pay it Forward to allow others to ENTER a giveaway. This would also need to be mentioned so people can continue with this. All giveaways should end by Oct. 9 to get ready for the week of auctions, which will include some fun Jumpstart the World book giveaways.
Go here for further details!"
