In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was created by The Story Siren.

This week I took another trip to the library and got out two more books.  I really can't help myself when it comes to books because there are just so many books I want to read that I go about crazy and start grabbing books left, right and center.  However, the books that  I got this week are:

Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey


'In less than a day I had been harassed, enchanted, shouted at, cried on, and clawed. I'd been cold, scared, dirty, exhausted, hungry, and miserable. And up until now, I'd been mildly impressed with my ability to cope.' A gripping fantasy set on the shifting boundary between what is real and what is legend. Can Ellie discover a power she never knew she possessed? At her boarding school in New Zealand, Ellie Spencer is like any ordinary teen: she hangs out with her best friend, Kevin; obsesses over her crush on a mysterious boy; and her biggest worry is her essay deadline. Until everything changes... In the foggy woods near the school, something ancient and deadly is waiting.

Get Well Soon by Julie Halpern



When her parents confine her to a mental hospital, an overweight teenaged girl, who suffers from panic attacks, describes her experiences in a series of letters to a friend.


And that was my week in the way of books.  Can't wait to see what everyone else got!

  2. I picked up Guardian of the Dead this week too, except my cover is waaaay different! It has a mask of some sort, and is a little creepy. Can't wait to hear what you think about it!
