In My Mailbox (January 23)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. All of the synopses you see below were found on Goodreads. Here are the books I got this week...

For Review

The Liar Society by Lisa & Laura Roecker
Kate Lowry didn't think dead best friends could send e-mails. But when she gets an e-mail from Grace, she’s not so sure.

Kate,
I'm here…
sort of.
Find Cameron.
He knows.
I shouldn't be writing.
Don't tell.
They'll hurt you.

Now Kate has no choice but to prove once and for all that Grace’s death was more than just a tragic accident. But secrets haunt the halls of her elite private school. Secrets people will do anything to protect. Even if it means getting rid of the girl trying to solve a murder...


*I've posted about this one a few times on this blog, because it's one of my most anticipated books of 2011. So, when it showed up in my mailbox I was beyond excited. A big thanks to Sourcebooks for this one.

As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis Devoto
Over two decades, Julia Child maintained a characteristically energetic correspondence with her close friend, fellow expert cook, and unofficial literary agent Avis DeVoto (1904-1989). This collection of two hundred letters between the pair renders not only their robust personalities, but also the evolution of Child's cooking philosophy and her masterful Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Culinary historian Joan Reardon presides over this plentiful gathering. Exuberant revelations; editor's recommendation. DeVoto was a featured character in the Julie & Julia film.
