In My Mailbox (16)

As you know, I have not been doing a lot of reading, BUT I did get a few books this week that I wanted to share with you. This is my way of disclosing what the publishers are sending me, as well as a way for you to see some books you might not have heard of, and that I might not get to! These, however are ones I most likely will get to! So thanks again Story Siren for hosting this meme!

From Publishers:

PARANORMALCY
by Kiersten White
To Be Published August 31st 2010 by HarperTeen
Hardcover, 352 pages

Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone--or something--starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal.

Normal is so overrated.



BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS
by Anna Godbersen
To Be Published October 26th 2010 by HarperCollins (according to GoodReads, on the sample I was sent it says November)
Hardcover, 416 pages

*Interesting Note:
I was sent a teaser sampler that is 84 pages long rather than a full ARC. I wonder with the cost of sending full ARCs if this will become more popular? Perhaps something to discuss when I read and review what I was sent!

Summary:
Bright Young Things is the first in an epic four-book series about three teenage girls finding their way in the glittering metropolis of New York City and the glamorous mansions of Long Island. It’s 1929 and Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town to chase big dreams and even bigger secrets. In New York, they meet Astrid Donal, a flapper who has everything she could ever want, except for the one thing Letty and Cordelia have to offer—true friendship. Set in the dizzying summer before the market crash, against the vast lawns of the East End and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls will find romance, intrigue, and adventure.

Just as The Luxe books brought the Gilded Age to readers of Gossip Girl, Bright Young Things will bring the Jazz Age to bestselling author Anna Godbersen’s devoted fans and to new readers alike.
