In My Mailbox (11)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that talks about books that have been bought, swapped, received for review or borrowed from the library.

This week both of my books were from the library.

Evernight by Claudia Gray (HarperTeen, June 2008)

Summary from GoodreadsBianca wants to escape.

She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.

Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him.

"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would."

But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.

Evernight has been on my TBR list for a few months now.  It has gotten some great reviews, which only make me want to read it more!  So, I'm excited that it finally came from the library. 


The Changeover: A Supernatural Romance by Margaret Mahy (Puffin, 1984)

Summary from Amazon: The face in the mirror. From the moment she saw it, Laura Chant knew that something dreadful was going to happen. It wasn't the first time she'd been forewarned. But never before had anything so terrible happened. The horrifyingly evil Carmody Braque touched and branded her little brother - and now Jacko was very ill, getting steadily worse. There was only one way to save him. Laura had to change over: had to release her supernatural powers. And that meant joining forces with the extraordinary and enigmatic Sorenson Carlisle...

I'm about halfway through The Changeover and so far I love it!  I had to put it down to work on a paper for class, but as soon as the paper is done I hope to finish reading it.

What's in your mailbox this week?

  7. I loved the Changeover when I was a teen! I'd forgotten what it was called but when I read the description I remembered right away. I loved Sorry and Laura. Brings back good memories of finding that book in the school library.

    Evernight is on my TBR list. I read an excerpt of it and really liked it. I hope you enjoy both books.
