In My Mailbox *3*

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren!

So  in my email I got some goodies that I have heard some interesting reviews on. I got these EBooks through Pulse It

Cryer's Cross: Lisa McMann
Synopsis: Goodreads

The community of Cryer’s Cross, Montana (population 212) is distraught when high school freshman Tiffany disappears without a trace. Already off-balance due to her OCD, 16-year-old Kendall is freaked out seeing Tiffany’s empty desk in the one-room school house, but somehow life goes on... until Kendall's boyfriend Nico also disappears, and also without a trace. Now the town is in a panic. Alone in her depression and with her OCD at an all-time high, Kendall notices something that connects Nico and Tiffany: they both sat at the same desk. She knows it's crazy, but Kendall finds herself drawn to the desk, dreaming of Nico and wondering if maybe she, too, will disappear...and whether that would be so bad. Then she begins receiving graffiti messages on the desk from someone who can only be Nico. Can he possibly be alive somewhere? Where is he? And how can Kendall help him? The only person who believes her is Jacian, the new guy she finds irritating...and attractive. As Kendall and Jacian grow closer, Kendall digs deeper into Nico's mysterious disappearance only to stumble upon some ugly—and deadly—local history. Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried.

I have read Lisa McMann's Wake Trilogy which is actually pretty good. I heard really good things about this book. I had to adjust to her choppy writing  which is kinda weird. Her books are kinda creepy but definitely entertaining. I will probably start this one next week

Choker: Elizabeth Woods
Synopsis: Goodreads

Sixteen-year-old Cara Lange has been a loner ever since she moved away from her best and only friend, Zoe, years ago. She eats lunch with the other girls from the track team, but they're not really her friends. Mostly she spends her time watching Ethan Gray from a distance, wishing he would finally notice her, and avoiding the popular girls who call her "Choker" after a humiliating incident in the cafeteria.

Then one day Cara comes home to find Zoe waiting for her. Zoe's on the run from problems at home, and Cara agrees to help her hide. With her best friend back, Cara's life changes overnight. Zoe gives her a new look and new confidence, and next thing she knows, she's getting invited to parties and flirting with Ethan. Best of all, she has her BFF there to confide in.

But just as quickly as Cara's life came together, it starts to unravel. A girl goes missing in her town, and everyone is a suspect—including Ethan. Worse still, Zoe starts behaving strangely, and Cara begins to wonder what exactly her friend does all day when she's at school. You're supposed to trust your best friend no matter what, but what if she turns into a total stranger?

I had seen someone's review on this book but I can't remember who it was and they raved about this book. I will probably start this one at the end of next week.


  1. Sounds good! I've heard great things about Choker, too. It's definitely on my TBR :)

  2. I wanna read them both !! I hope you'll have a great time reading them !! Enjoy ;)

  3. I can't wait to read Cryers Cross. I also had a hard time at first with the Wake Trilogy, the writing was a little weird to me. But I ended up enjoying it.
