In my mailbox (10)

In my mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren
This week I bought:

Read My Lips by Teri Brown
From Amazon:
Popularity is as easy as a good secret.
Serena just wants to fly under the radar at her new school. But Serena is deaf, and she can read lips really well-even across the busy cafeteria. So when the popular girls discover her talent, there's no turning back.
From skater chick to cookie-cutter prep, Serena's identity has done a 180...almost. She still wants to date Miller, the school rebel, and she's not ready to trade her hoodies for pink tees just yet. But she is rising through the ranks in the school's most exclusive clique.
With each new secret she uncovers, Serena feels pressure to find out more. Reading lips has always been her greatest talent, but now Serena just feels like a gigantic snoop...

Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles
From Amazon: Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad - her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares - has been cancelled. After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb's free ...if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers. Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak." Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It's a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.

Love Bites Boxset - containing:
Dirty Angels by Andrew Clover, Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson, Beautiful Dead by Eden Maguire, Darke Academy by Gabriella Poole, Vamprie Diaries - The Awakening, The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike.

How did you all do?

I've heard that Leaving Paradise is a good read, but a lot of people were unhappy with the ending. Of course, the author is writing a sequel. So those people will probably get the ending that they wanted. Enjoy your books!
