In My Mailbox This Week!!

The Unwritten Rule, by Elizabeth Scott.

I am SO excited about this one. I've only read one Elizabeth Scott book, Living Dead Girl and it was dark and kind of a short read, only like 190 pages or so. This one looks like it may be light and even funny by the cover, but it's about a girl who's in love with her best friend's boyfriend. The back cover says that she and Ryan, the boyfriend, spend a night together and Sarah feels guilty about it ever after. Obviously there will have to be a confrontation scene, so I can't see that this book will be as light as the cover suggests. But I don't know! I can't wait to read it. It comes out in April, so I'll wait to read it for awhile so my review will show up closer to the publication date. Awesome!

Orca Books have sent me an advanced reading copy care-package which included some cool titles too:

Hannah's Touch, by Laura Langston

Hannah is stung by a bee and has a near death experience. During the time she experiences being out of her body, she meets with her dead boyfriend, Logan. She wakes up with the ability to heal. It looks like she stays in some sort of contact with Logan and he starts using her new power for whatever purpose. Kind of a neat premise. It just came out this month.

In The Woods, by Robin Stevenson

Cameron finds a baby in the woods and it's considered a miracle that he's saved its life. But it wasn't luck that had Cameron happen to be riding his bike through the woods when he heard a baby cry: His twin sister had told him to go there. How did Katie know about the baby? Is she keeping secrets for someone? What will Cameron do with what he knows?
Another title out this month. Cool premise, as well.

I also received this week:

Taken, by Norah McClintock (read a teaser for this one here)
Salt, by Maurice Gee (read a teaser for Salt)
