In My Mailbox (#9)

This week in my mailbox I got two books. Two of which I'm very excited about and both of them are quick reads that I hope to review soon. Also to the anonymous commenter on my It's Monday! What are you Reading? meme on Monday who said encouraged me to read Pure at Heart and review it as quickly as possible, I am in the middle of reading it now, and hope to have the review up on Thursday. :) (Hopefully you are reading this)

Hazel's job at the Antioch didn't work out at all like she had planned. After a daring escape and one very risky delivery of the first baby born in years, she's still holding on to the hope of a better future. Out of the Antioch and on the run, who can Hazel turn to for help and can they really be trusted? In the second book of the Barronlands Trilogy, relationships are tested and even more secrets are revealed. Hazel tries to put the pieces together, hoping everything doesn't fall apart. Will she be able to hold it all together or will there be those who slip through the cracks?

I was very excited when  received an email from Claudia. I was dearly awaiting the second installment in the trilogy and I can't wait to delve into The Forgotten. Here is the link for my review on The Twenty

“Dead girl walking,” the boys say in the halls.
“Tell us your secret,” the girls whisper, one toilet to another.
I am that girl.
I am the space between my thighs, daylight shining through.
I am the bones they want, wired on a porcelain frame.

Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the skinniest. But what comes after size zero and size double-zero? When Cassie succumbs to the demons within, Lia feels she is being haunted by her friend’s restless spirit.

In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia’s descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.

I have read two other novels from Laurie Halse Anderson, and I really like the other novels. You can check out my review of Speak, and The Catalyst.


  1. Ooo...both of these look really good. I'll have to check them out further.

    Check out my IMM & SP.

  2. I've only read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, but I've heard great things about Wintergirls. I hope you enjoy reading that and The Forgotten!
