In My Mailbox (9)

These are the books this week that I bought. I didn't receive any in the mail.

The Market by J.M. Steele

I had never heard of this before and found it n the new table they had at the store.

This is not the cover I have but my cover was super hard to find and the one I found it was super small and blurry.

High school senior Kate Winthrop is about to find out just how much she's worth.

After stumbling across the Millbank Social Stock Market, Kate is horrified to discover that out of the 140 girls in her class, she's ranked a bleak 71. Sure, she's not drop-dead gorgeous, and her "fashion" choices leave a bit to be desired...but 71?! Determined not to accept her fate as a "junk bond," she and her best friends quickly set out to make her the fastest rising stock on the Market.
Armed with a sexy new haircut and killer wardrobe, Kate puts her plan into effect -- and the analysts take note. In a matter of weeks, her stock value soars, and "Blue Chip" status is within reach. But what begins as a fun social experiment quickly turns into an obsession, one that threatens to ruin her reputation, friendships, and a chance at first love. Will Kate survive the highs and lows of the Market, or will her security crash and burn?

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

I begged my dad to go to Barnes and Noble on its release day to get this. I am so excited to read this. I loved Evermore and can't wait to find out what happens next.
Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life. Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen’s past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...

I am really excited to read both of these. They both look really good.

I got Blue Moon too. It looks pretty good and I'm excited to read more. The first one was a little too much like Twilight and I'm hoping that this one is different.

I read The Market a little more than a year ago and I remember really liking it. Happy reading :)

Evermore is in my TBR list, after that I'm sure I'll definitely want to read Blue Moon. Happy reading!
