In My Mailbox {13}

In My Mailbox is an amazing weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren that features the books we have received during the week.

Here are the books I bought this week:

The Summer of Firsts and Lasts by Tera Elan McVoy
Three sisters. One life-changing summer.
Calla loves summer because summer means Duncan. They’ve been best friends for years, but Calla has never worked up the nerve to tell him how she really feels. This summer, the summer before college, is Calla's last chance.
Violet isn't much of a rule breaker in real life. But this isn't real life, this is summer, and Violet is determined to make the most of it. Besides, a little sneaking out never hurt anyone. And sneaking out with James is 100% worth the risk...even though James is completely off-limits.
Daisy has never been the sister that boys notice, but when sparks fly with Joel at the first bonfire of summer, it seems so easy and right. So why is being his girlfriend so complicated?

The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade  

Alona Dare–Senior in high school, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen three years in a row, voted most likely to marry a movie star… and newly dead.

I’m the girl you hated in high school. Is it my fault I was born with it all-good looks, silky blond hair, a hot bod, and a keen sense of what everyone else should not be wearing? But my life isn’t perfect, especially since I died. Run over by a bus of band geeks—is there anything more humiliating? As it turns out, yes—watching your boyfriend and friends move on with life, only days after your funeral. And you wouldn’t believe what they’re saying about me now that they think I can’t hear them. To top it off, I’m starting to disappear, flickering in and out of existence. I don’t know where I go when I’m gone, but it’s not good. Where is that freaking white light already?

Will Killian–Senior in high school, outcast, dubbed “Will Kill” by the popular crowd for the unearthly aura around him, voted most likely to rob a bank…and a ghost-talker.

I can see, hear, and touch the dead. Unfortunately, they can also see, hear and touch me. Yeah, because surviving high school isn’t hard enough already. I’ve done my best to hide my “gift.” After all, my dad, who shared my ability, killed himself because of it when I was fifteen. But lately, pretending to be normal has gotten a lot harder. A new ghost—an anonymous, seething cloud of negative energy with the capacity to throw me around—is pursuing me with a vengeance. My mom, who knows nothing about what I can do, is worrying about the increase in odd incidents, my shrink is tossing around terms like “temporary confinement for psychiatric evaluation,” and my principal, who thinks I’m a disruption and a faker, is searching for every way possible to get rid of me. How many weeks until graduation?

Ghost and the Goth is great---I just read your review and I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D The second book is even better! :D


I've heard great things about both of these. But based on the cover, which really makes me hungry, I'd have to read The Summer of Firsts and Lasts first.

I have been wanting to read The Ghost and the Goth for so long. I hope you like it. Happy reading :)


I loved both of the books you got this week! I thought The Ghost and the Goth would be totally shallow, but it really wasn't. Hope you enjoy them both!


I read McVoy's Pure when it first came out and really enjoyed it so I bet this one is really good as well. I've heard good things about The Ghost and the Goth and am planning on picking it up soon. Happy reading!

I saw The Summer of Firsts and Lasts in stores the other day and was tempted to buy it, but I'm already so behind in getting to the novels on my TBR pile that I didn't get it. A lot of people have seemed to enjoy The Ghost and the Goth... Anyways, happy reading! :)
