In My Mailbox (2)

Hey Guys so this is my first in my mailbox if you don't know what that means here let me explain. The idea started over at the Story Siren I blog I adore, check Kristi out. But this is a weekly posting of all the fun arriving in your mail box, it doesn't have to been actually in your mail box but it can be a shopping bag as well. Enough with the talk lets get started. So this week the books in my Mail Box were:

Suze is a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.
But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind ... and Suze happens to be in the way.
 So I work in a book store and a coworker (a YA lover as well) has been telling me this is a must read, and that it's got that paranormal edge. Other then the paranormal edge it is laugh out loud worthy. So i checked it out, and bought it it sounds that good!!! 

A devilish debut by a brother-sister team invites us into the world of the elite Marlowe School, where some gifted students are having a hell of a year.

One night, in cities all across Europe, five children vanish - only to appear, years later, at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess. Rumor and mystery follow the Faust teenagers to the city's most prestigious high school, where they soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor's extraordinary "gifts." But as the students claw their way up - reading minds, erasing scenes, stopping time, stealing power, seducing with artificial beauty - they start to suffer the side effects of their own addictions. And as they make further deals with the devil, they uncover secrets more shocking than their most unforgivable sins. At once chilling and wickedly satirical, this contemporary reimagining of the Faustian bargain is a compelling tale of ambition, consequences, and ultimate redemption.
So for this book I've seen this book a lot at walmart, my work, and shoppers. So I figured since it's haunting maybe ill check it out came home and Google'd the description. The story to it had an edge I totally liked. I was going to wait until it was on paperback, it was a little expensive for me i think it was around 23 dollars (i just finished getting books the week i saw it). I heard from a friend that Walmart was having a awesome 40% off cover price on selected paranormal YA (it was more then my discount at the bookstore) so I bought it! Can't wait to read this one!

Phoebe is just your typical goth girl with a crush. He''s strong and silent.and dead. All over the country,a strange phenomenon is happening. Some teenagers who die aren''t staying dead. They are coming back to life, but they are no longer the same-they stutter, and their reactions to everything are slower. Termed "living impaired" or "differently biotic," they are doing their best to fit into a society that doesn''t want them. Fitting in is hard enough when you don''t have the look or attitude, but when almost everyone else is alive and you''re not , it''s close to impossible. The kids at Oakvale High don''t want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn''t breathing. And there are no laws that exist to protect the differently biotic from the people who want them to disappear-for good. With her pale skin and Goth wardrobe, Phoebe has never run with the popular crowd. But no one can believe it when she falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids. Not her best friend, Margi, whose fear of the differently biotic is deeply rooted in guilt over the past. And especially not her neighbor,Adam, the star of the football team. Adam has just realized his feelings for Phoebe run much deeper than just friendship. He would do anything for her, but what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy? Generation Dead is a sharp, funny, and breathtakingly original novel from an exciting new talent
This book I got a super duper good deal on new hardcover at work for..... 5.99 :P and my discount!! I know i was in love. Ok I wasn't a big fan of Zombie related books but just read my first one the other day it was not what i expected so I'm giving this one a try. The story sound super cute I love me some love triangles. Another thing who doesn't like things that don't stay dead, and that don't breath (I definitely do)!!

There were no surprises in Gatlin County
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

At least, that''s what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn''t have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave.

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of 
Gatlin has ever seen, and she''s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When 
Lena moves into the town''s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.
A Gift: So this book was given to me by a customer, who I had a nice chat about books. She adored all books mostly fiction, and I told her my passion we talked for a while about books we have read. There was one she kept telling me I have to read ASAP. She praised how fabulous she thought this book was the next shift i was at work a coworker gave me a package with my name on it. And you guessed it the book was inside with a note "Enjoy" and customers name. Was that not sweat!!! :) 

So thats my In My Mailbox!! Whats in yours??
