In My Mailbox (4)

Alright. As we all know, IMM is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren! It's when you post about the books you received in the week - brought/won/checked out, etc.

This week I received:

The Hollow by Jessica Verday

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead?and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.

Which I've already started reading. Unfortunately I haven't been able to read much as I've worked the past 3 nights (I'm at work right now! But let's keep that to ourselves, heh). I really like the US cover but the UK one is so lovely! Lookit:

Anyway - I also received Night's Cold Kiss by Tracey O'Hara.

For centuries war raged between the humans and Aeternus vampires—until courageous efforts on both sides forged a fragile peace

But the rogue Necrodreniacs will never be controlled—addicted as they are to the death-high . . . and bloody chaos.

Since witnessing the murder of her mother, Antoinette Petrescu has burned with fiery hatred for the vampire race—even for Christian Laroque, the noble, dangerously handsome Aeternus who rescued her. Now an elite Venator, Antoinette must reluctantly accept Christian's help to achieve her vengeance—even as he plots to use the beautiful, unsuspecting warrior as bait to draw out the bloodthirsty dreniacs.

Definitely sounds good and I'll probably read it after The Hollow. So, that's all for these week!

I like the UK cover, it's gorgeous, but I think the US one is way better :-D I'm partial to purple.

Night's Cold Kiss looks like a fun read :-D

I'm reading The Hollow right now, too.

Judging by the US and UK covers, I'm guessing that that necklace is somehow significant. I haven't gotten that far yet, though.
