In My Mailbox: July 12 - 18, 2010

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

For review:

Minder by Kate Kaynak

Next week I'll be hosting author Kate Kaynak for an interview! She has also kindly offered to provide a Minder t-shirt for giveaway to one lucky reader!

Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn is special, but she needs to figure out how to use her new abilities before somebody else gets hurt. Ganzfield is a secret training facility full of people like her, but it's not exactly a nurturing place. Every social interaction carries the threat of mind-control. A stray thought can burn a building to the ground. And people's nightmares don't always stay in their own heads. But it's still better than New Jersey--especially once she meets the man of her dreams...

Someday My Prince Will Come: True Adventures of a Wannabe Princess by Jerramy Fine

I'll be hosting author Jerramy Fine for a Q&A guest post on August 2, and she has kindly provided a copy of her novel for giveaway!

The charming story of a small-town girl who dreams of finding love with a real-life English prince and who's willing to go to hilarious lengths to make her fairy tale come true

Most young girls dream of becoming a princess. But unlike most girls, Jerramy Fine never grew out of it. Strangely drawn to the English royal family since she was a child, Jerramy spends her childhood writing love letters to Buckingham Palace and absorbing any information she can find on modern-day princesses throughout the world. Years later, when her sense of destiny finally brings her to London, Jerramy navigates the murky waters of English social circles, etiquette, and dating with hilarious results.

Crossed Out by Kim Baccellia

Author Kim Baccellia will be guest posting on The Bookish Type on August 10!

Stephanie Stewart didn't ask for her gift of guiding the deceased to the other side but she's stuck with it. Why can't dead people just follow that bright light and leave her alone? When Mr. Undead wants to use her special talent for his own evil purposes, her little gift becomes a major liability.

Coming October 18, 2010

Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

“Thou art the Black Rider. Go thee out unto the world.”

Lisabeth Lewis has a black steed, a set of scales, and a new job: she’s been appointed Famine. How will an anorexic seventeen-year-old girl from the suburbs fare as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Traveling the world on her steed gives Lisa freedom from her troubles at home: her constant battle with hunger, and her struggle to hide it from the people who care about her. But being Famine forces her to go places where hunger is a painful part of everyday life, and to face the horrifying effects of her phenomenal power. Can Lisa find a way to harness that power — and the courage to battle her own inner demons?

Minder's cover looks like One Day by David Nicholls. It looks like an interesting read though. Enjoy your books.
