In My Mailbox (#29)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It's a perfect way to see who's reading and review what.  Awesome!
 
 
I got some brilliant review books this week from Penguin, so thank you! :)  I didn't really go anywhere to get books - I don't feel great :(  - so I didn't get a chance to go mad on books.  Which is a shame, really.  I do like book-shopping sprees.  Instead I've got a few from Netgalley and ordered in.  :D  This is what I got...
 
For Review:
 
Kill All EnemiesDefiance
 
Junk by Kevin Burgess (Goodreads | Amazon)
This is one of the best-known teen books of 1990s.  It does look really good, and about a really strong topic...  I can't wait to read it!
Kill All Enemies by Kevin Burgess (Goodreads | Amazon)
Ever Felt Like You Just Don't Fit In?
Kevin Burgess has been described as "one of the best writers in contempory children's literature".  From what little of this book, I can say I agree with this.  His writing is amazing, the characters real and I can feel everything.  And I'm only something like 50 pages in!  A very, very, very big 'Thank You' to Penguin!
Defiance by G.C. Naffin (Goodreads | Amazon)
She Lost Everything To The Enemy...
This looks great: I can't wait to get started on it!  Thanks Gina!
 
 
Bought:
 
The Island
 
Century by Sarah Singleton (Goodreads | Amazon)
This one looks wonderfully creepy.  Two girls, who have never questioned why each day is exactly the same as before... 'til they meet a stranger...  I'm hooked by that!  :D
The Island by Sarah Singleton (Goodreads | Amazon)
Murder In Paradise...
Who doesn't like a good murder?  And, no, that is not meant to sound as creepy as it did.  This book just looks brilliant.  And the cover is pretty. :)
 
 
NetGalley:
 
The Juliet SpellThe Butterfly CluesYou Are My Only
 Every Other DayWithout Tess
 
The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees (Goodreads | Amazon | NetGalley)
Will Romeo Steal Her Heart Before Time Steals Him Away?
This looks wonderful and, loving Romeo and Juliet as I do, I just know I'll love this too!
The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison (Goodreads | Amazon | NetGalley)
This one looks amazing and beautiful and sad.  And isn't the cover just the most beautiful thing ever?
You Are My Only by Beth Kephart (Goodreads | Amazon | NetGalley)
This... this looks heartbreaking.  So beautiful...  I can't wait to read it!
Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (Goodreads | Amazon | NetGalley)
Now this one looks incredible!  Every other day, Kali is a normal girl.  Every day inbetween... Kali is a kick-butt demon hunter!  Awesome, right? :D
Without Tess by Marcella Pixley (Goodreads | Amazon | NetGalley)
This just looks beautiful too.  And so sad.  Can't wait to read it!
 
 
That's me.  It was a long'un, so sorry!

This one is new to me, and I really want to read it. Sometimes I need that light, entertaining read and this sounds like it is perfect. Great review!
