In My Mailbox #12 It's all about Beauty Edition!

Well hello beautiful people! It's time once again for my (supposedly) weekly feature, In My Mailbox, hosted by the lovely The Story Siren where I will be posting books I've bought/been gifted/received for review the past week. I will really try my best to put up two reviews this week! *kisses* So last week, my brother needed a book and asked me to go with him to the bookstore, and I got these two Beauty books which I'm reading right now and LOVING! Please comment below if you want me to make a review on these, these aren't the usual books I review but I would of course love to if anyone is interested. They're Lauren Conrad's Beauty and Seventeen's Ultimate Guide to Beauty.




Have a beautiful week ahead everyone!

Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) by Gena Showalter (4/5 stars)

Title: Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1)
Author: Gena Showalter
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Date Published: September 25, 2012
Genre: Horror-Zombies/Urban Fantasy
Hardcover: 404 pages
Rating: 4/5 stars


"She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….


I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish.

The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

Title: The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) 
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Date Published: September 18, 2012
Genre: Paranormal
Hardcover: 408 pages
Rating: 2/5 stars


"Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
