In My Mailbox (10) - Lanna

For review:

Paper Towns by John Green

UK release date: May 2010

Summary: Who is the real Margo?

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life - dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. She has disappeared. Q soon learns that there are clues in her disappearance ...and they are for him. Trailing Margo's disconnected path across the USA, the closer Q gets, the less sure he is of who he is looking for.

It's the UK paperback version, I've actually already read and loved this book back when it was released in the US. I'll put my review of it up next month, nearer the UK release date.

Bought:

Heist Society by Ally Carter

Summary: When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre...to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria...to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own--scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list.

Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help. For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in history--or at least her family's (very crooked) history.

I couldn't resist getting this one. I'm reading the first book in Ally's Gallagher Girls series right now and it's pretty good so far.

Won:

Oh. My. Gods by Tera Lynn Childs

Summary: When cross-country-running California girl Phoebe Castro finds out her mom is marrying a virtual stranger and moving them halfway around the world to Greece right before her senior year, she thinks her worst problem will be missing out on fun times with her two best friends. But when they arrive on Serfopoula, her new stepdad tells her that all the students at the Academy—the ultra-elite private school which happens to be the same one founded by Plato more than two thousand years ago—are all super-powerful descendants of the gods. Missing her friends is the least of her problems.

Goddess Bootcamp by Tera Lynn Childs


Summary: This is the sequel to Oh. My. Gods. so I won't put the summary in case of spoilers.

Undone by Brooke Taylor


Summary: When Kori Kitlzer, the “dark angel” of the 8th grade, tells Serena Moore that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued. As their friendship solidifies and their lives entwine, Serena tries to become more like the fearless, outspoken, and ambitious Kori. Soon Serena doesn’t know where she begins and Kori ends. But when a twist of fate yanks Kori away from Serena, she will need to find a way to complete her best friend’s life left undone.

Technically I haven't got those ones yet, but I'm including them in this IMM post anyway because I'm likely to forget to add them to later ones. (I won them on Tera's blog.)

So, yeah, that's all I got this week - but I have added a ridiculous amount of books to my wish list this week... my wish list is like this ever growing thing, whenever I buy some stuff from it, I tend to add like twice as much back so it never gets any smaller (currently it has like 700+ things on it, at least 50% of which are books).

Later.
