In My Mailbox #13

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where you can talk about the books you bought or received this week.

So this week I got...

Wanted (Pretty Little Liars #8) by Sara Shepard
(Amazon / Goodreads)

Since this is part of the Pretty Little Liars series and I don't want to spoil it for anyone, I'm posting the description for Pretty Little Liars instead of the one for Wanted.

Goodreads description for Pretty Little Liars:

Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic, sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back?

I love the Pretty Little Liars series - they're just so much fun! I can't wait to read the next one in the series.

Inconvenient by Margie Gelbwasser

Goodreads description:

In fifteen-year-old Alyssa Bondar's Russian-Jewish culture, having a few drinks is as traditional as blinchiki and piroshki. So when her mom's midday cocktails turn into an all-day happy hour, it seems like Alyssa's the only one who notices—or cares. Her dad is steeped in the nightly news—and denial—and her best friend Lana is too busy trashing their shared Russian heritage so she can be popular.
Alyssa would rather focus on cross-country meets and her first kiss with her running partner, Keith, but someone has to clean up her mom's mess. But who will be there to catch Alyssa when her mom's next fall off the wagon threatens to drag her down, too?

I'm going to be taking part in The Teen Book Scene's blog tour for Inconvenient in July. My very first book tour - exciting, right? I'll have a review and a guest post by Margie Gelbwasser. If you feel like it, you can find out more about the tour here. Anyways, this book sounds great and I'm excited to read it!

Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
(Amazon / Goodreads)

Goodreads description:

As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also each other's only friend. So when Cameron disappeared without warning, Jennifer thought she'd lost the one person who would ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she is popular, happy, and dating—everything "Jennifer" couldn't be. But she still can't shake the memory of her long-lost friend.
When Cameron suddenly reappears, they both are confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have taken.

I really enjoyed both Story of a Girl and Once Was Lost, so I'm excited to read another novel by Sara Zarr! And I love the cover - so cute!
