In My Mailbox

IMM was created by Kristi over at The Story Siren as a fun way to see what everyone bought/recieved/borrowed for the week.

Hope everyone in the states had a great Fourth of July! Don't forget to check out the sidebar ---> for all the giveaways going on right now. Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen ends tonight!

This post is going to cover the last two weeks because I was lazy last week, and I haven't gotten many books.



From a giveaway:



The September Sisters by Jillian Cantor

Abigail Reed and her younger sister, Becky, are always at each other's throats. Their mother calls them the September Sisters, because their birthdays are only a day apart, and pretends that they're best friends. But really, they delight in making each other miserable. Then Becky disappears in the middle of the night, and a torn gold chain with a sapphire heart charm is the only clue to the mystery of her kidnapping. Abby struggles to cope with her own feelings of guilt and loss as she tries to keep her family together. When her world is at its bleakest, Abby meets a new neighbor, Tommy, who is dealing with his own loss, and the two of them discover that love can bloom, even when it's surrounded by thorns.

For review:


Across the Pond by Storyheart

Finding himself packed off to friends in the USA, 15 year old English born Fred Squire is not happy. Then he meets Brittany. Struggling with his feelings for Brit and the language, Fred is further confused when he meets Brit's flirtatious friend, Angel. Life continues to throw Fred a curve ball when he catches a baseball worth a small fortune. Further run-ins with neighborhood bully, Harris, a crazy family barbecue, and a chase through a mall all add to Fred's American adventure. "Brit and her Brit" know that their young love will be followed by heartache when Fred has to return to England but not before some final twists in the tale.





Coffehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors

When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down. Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’s selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .



That's it for me. What did you get this week?

The September Sisters sounds really interesting. I'm also born in September and so are my two siblings. We're less than a week apart. Hopefully none of us would ever be kidnapped though... :P Coffeehouse Angel sounds very cute. Happy reading! :)
