In My Mailbox (36)

I had a pretty good past two weeks in terms of books!

First up is Cinder by Marissa Meyer, an intriguing retelling of Cinderella that involves cyborgs and aliens, which is seriously awesome. I so can't wait to see what the author did with that!

Next I got Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally, which promises to be a lovely romance. What really interests me about it, though, is that the girl is a football player, something you don't see much in real life nor in books.

One of the most exciting books I got was Pure by Julianna Baggott, a dystopian novel with an absolutely gorgeous cover. The synopsis is a bit too long for me to post here, but trust me when I say it's awesome.

To satisfy my love of dark contemporary, I received Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale, a novel about a girl whose mother dies from Huntington's disease and then finds out she was swapped at birth with a sickly baby destined to pass away.

Since I can never get enough of gorgeous covers, Drowning Instinct by Ilsa Bick fell into my hands. The synopsis is slightly vague, but this seems to be a book about a sixteen-year-old girl with a hard life who starts to fall for a married man. I love hard-hitting contemporary, so this is right up my alley!

Finally, I got On a Dark Wing by Jordan Dane. I don't typically like paranormal romance, but this seems far different from the typical books in that genre, so I'm willing to give this a try.

What did you get in your mailbox?
