In my mailbox (15)

In the mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren

This week I bought:

Hold Still by Nina LaCour
From Goodreads:
dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can’t.

Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend’s suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn’t die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid’s descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid—and Caitlin herself.


In Your Room by Jordanna Fraiberg

From Goodreads: Molly and Charlie have fallen head over heels in love even though they've never met. Molly is a fashion-conscious city girl in L.A. Charlie is an earthy, mountain-biking dude from Boulder, Colorado. Each of them has big plans with their respective friends for the summer, until they discover that their parents decided to swap houses!
Luckily there's no amount of homesickness that a bit of snooping can't cure. Charlie and Molly begin crawling under beds and poking around in closets to find out a little more about each other, and they like what they find.
Can Charlie and Molly's long-distance romance survive jealousy, misunderstandings and the thousand miles between them?

Shrimp by Rachel Cohn

From Amazon: If Cyd Charisse knows one thing, it's that Shrimp is her true love. Shrimp, the hottest pint-size surfer-artist in San Francisco - or 'that boy' as her mother calls him. He's the primary cause of Cyd being grounded, and the boy who dumped her before she left home for the summer. Now it's the start of senior year. Cyd has changed, but maybe Shrimp has too. Cyd and Shrimp need to get to know each other all over again to figure out if this time it's for real. But can Cyd get back together with Shrimp and keep the peace with her mother? And can she get a life outside of her all-encompassing boy radar?

Hope you all had a good week:)

Becky - Shrimp is a sequel to a book called Gingerbread and that was quirky! Fun too.

Jenny - Hold Still is gorgeous! I've been stroking it a lot since I brought it:) Hmm ... does that make me sound weird????
