In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren in which we share the books we received for the week.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
From Goodreads: What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

The Fetch by Laura Whitcomb
From Goodreads: A supernatural love story set in Imperial Russia.

"There's something not right about you," said Ana. She wasn't teasing him. She was concerned about what she detected behind his eyes. This made Calder's skin tingle. "You're not telling me something."
She was uncanny. Calder silently prayed she could not see how he had broken his Vows and upset her world and his own.
"You're lonely," she told him. "It must be hard to pretend all the time."
He felt a wave of sadness, sudden and deep.
"Don't be afraid," she told him. "Everyone has a secret. I'll keep yours."

Calder is a Fetch, a death escort, the first of his kind to step from Heaven back to Earth.
The first to fall in love with a mortal girl.
But when he climbs backward out of that Death Scene, into the chaos of the Russian Revolution, he tears a wound in the ghost realm where the spirits begin a revolution of their own.

I have Before I Fall into my TBR pile-it looks like a great read and the cover is just gorgeous. Oooh, the fetch! I haven't picked that up yet but I'm hoping it lives up to the awesomeness that was A Certain Slant of Light... *crosses fingers* Happy reading! :)
