In My Mailbox #13
At the beginning of this week, I wasn't really expecting any books, since I'm playing a huge game of catch up with all of the other books I haven't read yet. When I found out there was a book signing taking place close to home at the end of this month, I wanted to go out and get some, so I could get them signed(:
I only purchased two, I hope to have more by the book signing!
So here it goes...
You Wish, by Mandy Hubbard.
"Kayla McHenry's sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy Kayla's secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles, Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually came true. Because they never freakin' do.
Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year's supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla's wishes-past appear, they take her on a wild ride . . . but they MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is her best friend's boyfriend."
Chasing Brooklyn, by Lisa Schroeder.
"Restless souls and empty hearts
Brooklyn can't sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca, died only a year ago, and now her friend Gabe has just died of an overdose. Every time she closes her eyes, Gabe's ghost is there waiting for her. She has no idea what he wants or why it isn't Lucca visiting her dreams.
Nico can't stop. He's always running, trying to escape the pain of losing his brother, Lucca. But when Lucca's ghost begins leaving messages, telling Nico to help Brooklyn, emotions come crashing to the surface.
As the nightmares escalate and the messages become relentless, Nico reaches out to Brooklyn. But neither of them can admit that they're being haunted. Until they learn to let each other in, not one soul will be able to rest."
I already finished Chasing Brooklyn and loved it, the review will be up next week! And I just started You Wish, only 50 pages into it, I'm really enjoying the main character and her attitude(:
