In My Mailbox

Another week and not enough time to read. I read Divergent (which is absolutely brilliant) and the Iron Witch (also great). And we'll host Daisy Whitney and CJ Omololu on wednesday this week. Join us if you are in the area. February 2nd at 7.00. With thanks, as ever, to Story Siren for hosting this meme.

Now to the books I go this week:

1. Drought by Pam Bachorz
I loved Candor so I'm really looking forward to this one.

2. Hereafter by Tara Hudson
A paranormal romance between a girl whose spirit is stranded near a dark river and the boy who almost drowns in it.

3. Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby
One cute boy, one tough girl, one giant killer fairy. What could possibley go wrong?

4. Dead Rules by Randy Russell
Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were destined to be together forever. Of that, Jana was sure. But Jana just died. So she decides to take matters into her own hands and bring Michael to her. Think Romeo and Juliet meets Heathers.

5. Compulsion by Heidi Ayarbe
A riveting and courageous portrait of a teen struggling with obsessive compulsive disorder.

All look good. SO what should I read next? I'm still thinking about Divergent and I need something to take me out of that world. Suggestions?

Ooooh... read DIVERGENT twice? Really, it's THAT wonderful! And Kaz Mahoney's IRON WITCH is super, too! Uh, I'd lean heavily toward Tara Hudson's HEREAFTER on this list because, well... I sorta like paranormal romance at the moment and Tara's story looks SO ORIGINAL!

I'd go for either Hereafter (gorgeous cover!) or Compulsion (which I've heard almost nothing about, so I'm interested to know more). Jealous that you've already read Divergent!
