YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009

In My Mailbox (33)

This week mailbox was empty. But last week I received something in the mail but forgot to mention it. Whoops! I purchased one book and didn’t borrow any.

In My Mailbox:

Murder is Binding by Lorna Barrett
The streets of Stoneham, New Hampsire are lined with bookstores…and paved with murder.

When she moved to Stoneham, city slicker Tricia Miles met nothing but friendly faces. And when she opened her mystery bookstore, she met friendly competition. But when she finds Doris Gleason dead in her own cookbook store, killed by a carving knife, the atmosphere seems more cutthroat than cordial. Someone wanted to get their hands on the rare cookbook that Doris had recently purchased-and the locals think that someone is Tricia. To clear her name, Tricia will have to take a page out of one of her own mysteries-and hunt down someone who isn’t killing by the book.

My Book Depository order! 😀 I’m pretty sure this is not YA but it sounds really good and I could use a mystery.

Gone by Michael Grant
In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.
Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what’s happened.

Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day.
It’s a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else…

I was standing at the bookstore debating for ages whether to get it or not. Eventually I bought it and I can’t wait to read it.

What did you get this week? 🙂
