In My Mailbox 2- Birthday Edition

Gifts and bought:

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn't fit in to Jessica Packwood's senior-year 'get a life' plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire Princess by birth and he's her long lost fiance. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire's Guide to Dating, Health and Emotions, Jessica makes a drmatic transition from average Americain teenager to glam European vampire princess. But Jessica has never even been kissed- how can she possibly commit herself to a long-term relationship? Or an eternal relationship for that matter?

Book 1 in the Wolves of MercyFalls
The pack circled around me, tounges and teeth and growls.

When a local boy is killed by wolves, Grace's small town becomes a place of fear and suspicion. But Grace can't help being fascinated by the pack, and by one yellow-eyed wolf in particular. There's something about him- something almost human.
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Book 2 in the Wolves of MercyFalls
 I feel the weight of the packs gaze....

Grace and Sam must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping the dangerous secrets. For Sam, it means grappling with this werewolf past... and figuring out a way to survive the future. But just when they manage to find happiness, Grace realizes she's changing in ways she never have expected... 

Countless teenage girls have been brutally murdered... and Scarlett and Rosie March know how they died: torn apart by werewolves. For Scarlett, the memories of a similar attack have left not just emotional scars, but physical ones. The sisters fight side by side to save others from the same fate.

When the mysterious and brooding Silas arrives he inadvertently causes a series of events that could endanger them all. As passion grows between Rosie and Silias, Scarlett uncovers some shocking secrets about Silia’s family history that could tear the sisters apart- one way or another…

Book 1 in the Immortality Bites Series
Dear mum,

I might be a wee bit late for cousin Missy’s wedding. Iy’s been a rough week. Turns out my blind date from hell was literally from hell. Guy bit me. Next thing I know I’m being chased all over the city by vampire hunters. And did I mention I got fired too?

Bightside- I met a man. Thierry de Bennicoeur. How great is that name? Anyway he’s sexy, six hundred years old, and a tad bit suicidal, but no one’s perfect right? And we have a deal: he’s going to show me the roped of the vampire world, and im supposed to help him end his existence. Or maybe I’ll just try to convince him life is worth living- no small challenge with the mostly immortal, let me tell you I’ll admit it’s a complicated relationship. But with any luck, I might just have a date to the wedding after all.

Hugs and kissies,
