In My Mailbox (3)
The in my mailbox meme is hosted by The Story Siren. This meme is were everyone tells about what books they received during the week.
I received three books this week and a signed poster of Shadow Hills.
Books I got for review:
"Biting the Bride" by Clare Willis
Some men are worth sticking your neck out for…
Sunni Marquette has always been a little different. There’s the whole mind-reading thing, for a start, which comes in useful for a criminal defense attorney. Except that lately, Sunni keeps encountering people who are immune to her gift. Like Jacob Eddington, the star witness in her latest case. And her best friend Isabel’s new fiancé, Richard Lazarus, who’s as sinister as Jacob is attractive. Not that Sunni intends to interfere—until she learns that Richard is a vampire who’s made a centuries-long career of marrying wealthy women, then killing them for their inheritance.
Sunni is convinced Jacob is a vampire, too, and that he’s her only chance of saving Isabel. With his help, she’ll discover powers she never knew she possessed, an enemy who’s closer than she could have ever guessed, and the kind of love that’s worth staking everything on—if she can just stay alive long enough to enjoy it…
"Crazy" by Eve Langlais
Ella hears voices and they don’t like anyone.
Institutionalized at a young age after the breakup of her parents, Ella’s always heard voices. Even worse, the voices in her head like to act. She thinks she’s crazy and destined to be a patient for life until the night she meets a vampire and for the first time in her life, the voices shut up.
Zane just wants to enjoy his usual blood buffet, instead he runs into a wisp of a woman who makes him feel emotions he thought long dead. Rescuing her from the insane asylum, he brings her home, determined to assuage his lust; a plan that is foiled by ghostly voices more determined to keep her pure than a steel welded chastity belt.
Together they discover Ella might not be as crazy as everyone thinks, but even as they discover her innate power, someone from her past wants to hurt her. Will crazy and undead prevail against covetous evil? And most important of all, will the voices ever allow them to indulge in the desire that consumes them?

"Shadow Hills" by Anastasia Hopcus
After her sister Athena's tragic death, it's obvious that grief-stricken Persephone "Phe" Archer no longer belongs in Los Angeles. Hoping to make sense of her sister's sudden demise and the cryptic dreams following it, Phe abandons her bubbly LA life to attend an uptight East Coast preparatory school in Shadow Hills, MA — a school which her sister mysteriously mentioned in her last diary entry before she died.
Once there, Phe quickly realizes that something is deeply amiss in her new town. Not only does Shadow Hills' history boast an unexplained epidemic that decimated hundreds of its citizens in the 1700s, but its modern townies also seem eerily psychic, with the bizarre ability to bend metal. Even Zach — the gorgeous stranger Phe meets and immediately begins to lust after — seems as if he is hiding something serious. Phe is determined to get to the bottom of it. The longer she stays there, the more she suspects that her sister's untimely death and her own destiny are intricately linked to those who reside in Shadow Hills.
Thanks Good Choice Reading!
