In my mailbox (4)

8 Aug

In My Mailbox is hosted by the Story Siren to highlight new books bought or received each week and is a great way to find lots of new ideas for books to read.

I treated myself to two books this week which was very restrained!

Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink

From the back cover:

An ancient prophecy divides two sisters

one good … one evil …

Who will prevail?

Twin Sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves uncovering a lifetime of secrets. Secrets that could destroy everything.

Lia and Alice don’t know who they can trust.

They just know they can’t trust each other.

I love the cover for this book with it’s shiny silver leaf. Very much looking forward to reading it.

Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

Lee Fiora is a shy fourteen-year-old when she leaves small-town Indiana for a scholarship at Ault, an exclusive boarding school in Massachusetts. Her head is filled with images from the school brochure of handsome boys in sweaters leaning against old brick buildings, girls running with lacrosse sticks across pristine athletics fields, everyone singing hymns in chapel. But as she soon learns, Ault is a minefield of unstated rules and incomprehensible social rituals, and Lee must work hard to find – and maintain – her place in the pecking order.

I can’t wait to read this one but going to save it for my week off at the end of this month.

    I read Prep a couple summers ago, but I can’t remember much about it. I hope you like it.

    I have The Prophecy of the Sisters somewhere deep in my TBR stack but just haven’t gotten to it yet. I hope you enjoy it. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

    If I buy less than two books a week I feel cheated. I’m so book spoiled!
