In My Mailbox (29)

It's Sunday, and I'm participating in The Story Siren's In My Mailbox. So let's keep this intro short & sweet and get started!
In My Mailbox
From Goodreads
Both of these actually came signed, one even personalized, and I was going to post those pictures, but clearly forgot. Next time, maybe?

Breath by Abbi Glines
This is a YA about a girl who spends her summer at the beach, not hanging out, but instead working in one of the wealthy homes. Except it turns out the home is owned by the hottest teen rocker, and one guess from the cover as to what goes on. Sounds like a cute summer-y read, right?

The Julian Game by Adele Griffin
This sounds like the exact opposite type book. It is still YA, but it's about 2 girls who decide to sabotage one of their exes over facebook. Not quite cute, but does look like a lot of fun.

Borrowed from my mom
I was in California two weeks ago now, visiting my mom who was (and still is) in ICU. She had set these two books aside to mail to me, but since I was already there I flew back with them.

The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig
My mom actually lent me the first in this series (The Secret History of the Pink Carnation) about a month or two ago, although I've still yet to read it. I guess now that I have the second book in the series, I probably should get started on it!

The Glassblower of Murano by Marina Fiorato
This is another historical fiction that takes place in Venice in the 1600s. I don't believe I've read a historical fiction in Venice before, and from the looks of the summary, it sounds like something I'll really enjoy.

So, that's it for me this week. What did you find in your mailbox?
