Mailbox Monday 67 books

For Review:

The Darkest Minds and Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken – From Big Honcho Media. I’ve heard good things about this series, and now I get to read books one and two back-to-back.

Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple – From Hachette. I think this book is pretty new to paperback, and it sounds very cute.

Dare Me by Megan Abbott – From Hachette. Also new to paperback, this is a mystery about a cheerleader’s suicide.

Library books – picked up for Cybils:

17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma – A girl has visions of missing 17-year-old girls and fears she might be next.

Fat Angie by e. E. Charlton-Trujillo -Angie deals with bullies at school, depression, and troubles with her family, and a new girl at school sees through to the real Angie.

Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick your Ass by Meg Medina – Piddy is the new girl and immediately gets some unwelcome attention from the school bully, Yacqui.

Wise Young Fool by Sean Beaudoin – Ritchie recounts the year leading up to his stint in juvie.

How to Lead a Life of Crime by Kirsten Miller – This is about an exclusive NYC school that trains criminals.

Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan -Crash halts his classmate Burn’s plan to blow up the school and writes a book all about it.


Far from You by Tess Sharpe – Disney Hyperion/NG – Sophie almost died twice and had a drug problem, so no one believes her when she says she’s clean and had nothing to do with her friend Mina’s death.

Heating Up the Holidays 3-Story Bundle by Lisa Renee Jones, Mary Ann Rivers, Serena Bell – Loveswept/NG. There’s a Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s story in this bundle.

Stir Me Up by Sabrina Elkins – Harlequin Teen/NG. Cami is a French chef’s daughter who has her post-high school life figured out, until she falls for 20-year-old ex-marine Julian.

Unteachable by Leah Raeder – kindle purchase. This book is about a girl who falls for her teacher (before she knows he’s her teacher) and the fallout.

One & Only by Liv Daniels – source: author. Viv Daniels is Diana Peterfreund’s pen name and this New Adult book sounds fabulous.

    Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Dare Me are very different but they’re both so good!

  4. Great collection of books…hope you enjoy them all. Where’d You Go, Bernadette was a fun read. Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I enjoyed “Bernadette”. Have a great week!

    Wow it seems like a lot of authors have New Adult or Romance pen names these days. I would totally read that Viv Daniels book though. I’ve almost gotten 17 & Gone a few times, too. Kidnapping stories always freak me out though.

    Lots of good books this week, Lucy. Happy reading!

  8. Ooh Bernadette! Such a riot! I hope you like it 🙂

    It looks like you have a fantastic haul of books this week. They all look really interesting. I heard parts of Where’d You Go Bernadette on BBC Radio 4 a while back (June 2012, according to the website) and it was a really fun play, so I hope the book is just as good. I hope you enjoy your books, and that you have a good week.

    Cannot wait to see your reviews on these! Especially Far From You because it sounds great and I love Disney Hyperion books!

    Where’d You Go Bernadette was really fun and heartwarming with a touch of originality; I hope you’ll enjoy it too! And I am SO looking forward to your review of One & Only! I discovered this week that Liv Daniels is Diana Peterfreund and since i enjoyed her Secret Society and Unicorn series (I still have to read her most recent one though!), I am really looking forward to this one. Enjoy your new books! 🙂
