The “In My Mailbox” meme was first brought to my attention from The Story Siren’s blog.  Since it is similar to Adele’s Mailbox Monday, I thought I’d mention her too.  Both blogs are great so take a look at them both.

I rec’d several books this week.  I’m not going to put pictures for everything because I’m feeling a bit lazy this week and sometimes getting everything to line up just right is a chore.  So, here is the list with SOME covers and SOME descriptions.

1. IN THE SMALL by Michael Hague (Graphic Novel)

2. SHADOWED SUMMER by Saundra Mitchell (Thank you Saundra!)

shadowed-summer
Nothing ever happened in Ondine, Louisiana, not even the summer Elijah Landry disappeared.
His mother knew he ascended to heaven, the police believed he ran away, and his girlfriend thought he was murdered.
Decades later, certain she saw his ghost in the town cemetery, fourteen-year-old Iris Rhame is determined to find out the truth behind “The Incident With the Landry Boy.”
Enlisting the help of her best friend Collette, and forced to endure the company of Collette’s latest crush, Ben, Iris spends a summer digging into the past and stirring old ghosts, in search of a boy she never knew.  What she doesn’t realize is that in a town as small as Ondine, every secret is a family secret.
3. SUITE SCARLETT by Maureen Johnson 
suite-scarlett
Scarlett is the third of four children in the Martin family. The Martins live in and manage a shabby hotel in NYC that dates back to the 1920s. When Scarlett turns 15, she is put in charge of one of the hotel’s 27 rooms- the Empire Suite. Into this room moves Mrs. Amberson, a failed 1970s starlet who has returned to New York to write her memoirs. Soon, Scarlett is taking dictation, running around town with Mrs. Amberson, and getting caught up in her Auntie Mame-meets-Bianca Jagger adventures.
In the midst of all this, Scarlett falls in love – or so she thinks – and it takes Mrs. Amberson to help her see the light.

All Megan Fletcher had wanted was to be like her sister Lucy: a beautiful, thin girl whom everyone at the Chesapeake School for Performing Arts worshipped and adored. While Lucy was a star actress with lots of fans, Megan had always been hiding behind the set designs that she and her best friend Simon had created, hoping that no one would notice her.
And then one day, life as Megan knew it had changed forever. Megan was
in an accident that disfigured her face and plastic surgeons had to
restructure it very carefully. Only no one would have thought that when
the bandages came off, Megan would be even more beautiful than Lucy . . .

She’s now facing three Examiners, and her grueling all-day Examination has just begun. If she passes, she’ll be admitted into the Academy—the elite governing institution of her utopian society.But Anax is about to discover that for all her learning, the history she’s been taught isn’t the whole story. And that the Academy isn’t what she believes it to be.In this brilliant novel of dazzling ingenuity, Anax’s examination leads us into a future where we are confronted with unresolved questions raised by science and philosophy. Centuries old, these questions have gained new urgency in the face of rapidly developing technology. What is consciousness? What makes us human? If artificial intelligence were developed to a high enough capability, what special status could humanity still claim?Outstanding and original, Beckett’s dramatic narrative comes to a stunning close. This perfect combination of thrilling page-turner and provocative novel of ideas demands to be read again and again.
