In My Mailbox (1)

In my mailbox was started by Kristi at The Story Siren!

First IMM post! Sadly, I don't have a ton of books to post, but I get most of them on Tuesday, so that'd explain why I'm a little empty right now. And I don't get sent books to review yet or anything (hoping that'll change in the future!) But anyway, these are what I have this week.

Carolina is a science-oriented senior in high school, living in Alabama who takes a poetry class for her liberal studies requirement. With her best friend Schuyler, they could probably name the species of every animal living in North America, and all the particles in the molecules making them up. Yet it all seems trivial when love looms into the picture: an unfamiliar feeling that cannot be graphed or charted, and even worse, has to remain a secret.

Carolina is not your average girl, but one who finds herself observing those around her rather than actually interacting with them. Yet it all ends the moment Mr. Mann stepped into the room. Who could suspect that what lies ahead of her is a year of forbidden love, a rising passion and a betrayal of the worst sort?

Synopsis from Pele Publications.

Dad? Zombie. Mom? Long gone. Me? Well, that's the scary part.

The Real World is a frightening place. Just ask sixteen-year-old orphan Dru Anderson, a tough girl who has taken down her fair share of bad guys. She's armed, dangerous, and ready to kill first and ask questions later. So it's gonna take her a while to figure out who she can trust . . .

Dru Anderson has been 'strange' for as long as she can remember, traveling from town to town with her father to hunt the things that go bump in the night. It's a weird life, but a good one – until it all explodes in an icy, broken-down Dakota town, when a hungry zombie busts through her kitchen door. Alone, terrified, and trapped, Dru's going to need every inch of her wit and training to stay alive. The monsters have decided to hunt back – and this time, Dru's on their menu. Chances of survival? Slim to none.

If she can't last until sunup, it's game over . . .

That's it for this week! Hopefully I have a lot more to post about next Sunday. :)
