In my mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. Here are the books I got this week...
Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel (ARC edition/Published by St Martin's Griffin/Release Date: August 3, 2010)
"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one." Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face. It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.
I'm pretty excited about this one, I've only heard good things so far.
Barnes and Noble was having their red dot sale last week, and aside from Sizzling Sixteen, they were all 2.99 or less. I'm not going to post each book's full synopsis, but I will link to Goodreads.

Bite Me by Melissa Francis
AJ Ashe isn't your typical seventeen-year-old vampire—as if there is such a thing! She's stuck in the middle of a huge fight between her two BFFs. Her ex-boyfriend—whom she's still totally in love with, by the way—is now her stepbrother. A former classmate—who, um, she may or may not have turned into a vampire—is stalking her. And now, apparently, the fate of humankind lies in her little undead hands. What ever happened to the good old days, when all a vampire girl had to worry about was the occasional zit and hiding her taste for blood? (From Goodreads)
Jennifer's Body by Audrey Nixon
Someone needed to put a stop payment on Jennifer Check. Some people find it hard to believe that a babe like Jennifer Check would associate with a dork like me, Needy Lesnicki. But we had history. We'd been the Wonder Twins since we were preverbal, and sandbox love never dies. Or at least that's what I thought. But after that night in the woods, Jennifer was different. She looked different. And then the killings began. . . . A lot of people ask me if I'm sorry I did it. I'm only sorry I didn't do it sooner. (From Goodreads)
Generation Dead by Daniel Waters
Phoebe Kendall is just your typical Goth girl with a crush. He's strong and silent...and dead.
All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they are doing their best to blend into a society that doesn't want them. (Partial Synopsis from Goodreads)
