In my Mailbox (1)

This week I received lots of ARCs and am I am really excited to start reading.The ones I am most excited about are listed below.

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie's only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie's head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator's grandson.
It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations' plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .

Isn’t the cover gorgeous?I love the whole white and blue thing that is going on and the blurb sounds really interesting.The comparison to The Hunger Games sold me.

Deep in the shadowy foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies a dying town…
My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I’ve been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I’m coming to think I have another purpose here.
Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I’ve discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town—this withering kingdom—and it will
only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

I had read so many good reviews about the first book, The Grave Restorer, but never got the chance to read it.Now that I have received an ARC for The Kingdom I am going to give it a try. It is going to be spooky and scary.

This feature Is hosted by The Story Siren every week.

I'm not familiar with either of these books, but Starters sounds really good. I'll be adding that book to my wishlist ASAP. Enjoy both of your new reads =)
