In My Mailbox #74

Wallflower in Bloom by Claire Cook
*Thank you to Touchstone for sending me this one for review. It's high up on my summer reading list, so I can't wait to read it!
Goodreads says, "From the acclaimed bestselling author of Must Love Dogs comes a winning and witty new novel about a woman who emerges from the shadow of her overbearing family and finds herself “dancing with the stars.” Deirdre Griffin has a great life; it’s just not her own. She’s the around-the-clock personal assistant to her charismatic, high-maintenance, New Age guru brother, Tag. As the family wallflower, her only worth seems to be as gatekeeper to Tag at his New England seaside compound. Then Deirdre’s sometime boyfriend informs her that he is marrying another woman, who just happens to be having the baby he told Deirdre he never wanted. While drowning her sorrows in Tag’s expensive vodka, Deirdre decides to use his massive online following to get herself voted on as a last-minute Dancing with the Stars replacement. It’ll get her back in shape, mentally and physically. It might even get her a life of her own. Deirdre’s fifteen minutes of fame have begun. Irresistible and offbeat, Wallflower in Bloom is an original and deeply satisfying story of having the courage to take a leap into the spotlight, no matter where you land."

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
*I am obsessed with Jenny Han. She is one of my favorite authors, so I'll read anything she writes. Thanks to NetGalley for this one.
Goodreads says, "BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY... THEY GET EVEN. Lillia has never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. Not until this summer, when one went too far. No way will she let the same thing happen to her little sister. Kat is tired of the rumours, the insults, the cruel jokes. It all goes back to one person– her ex-best friend– and she's ready to make her pay. Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she's not the same girl anymore. And she's ready to prove it to him. Three very different girls who want the same thing: sweet, sweet revenge. And they won't stop until they each had a taste."

  12. I've never heard of Burn for Burn, but it sounds utterly fantastic. I have to head over to NetGalley and see if I can score a copy. I can't wait to read your review! Here's my IMM.

  13. I just love that cover for Wallflower in Bloom! It's so sincerely pretty. Perfect for summer, definitely!

    And I'm still waiting for my stinking approval for Burn for Burn. It just looks so AWESOME and, hullo, it's written by freaking Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian. Not that I've read books by either of them XD, but I'm down with the hype and I know what's what. I still have to read Jenny Han's series, and I have the first book waiting patiently for me to get my slow butt over there and start it. :D Fabulous!

  14. Both books sound great! I really enjoyed Must Love Dogs, so I hope this one is just as good. I got Burn for Burn from Netgalley and can't wait to read it!
