In My Mailbox 8

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted every Sunday over at The Story Siren. A great meme which allows bloggers to share what they receive/buy/borrow each week.

I would like to thank author Tom Clempson, whos debut book, One Seriously Messed-Up Week, will be released in June, for sending me this amazing cake! It is by far the best thing the post lady has ever handed over!!! I had given up cake, chocolate and sweets for lent and after demanding cake and sending death threats Tom found out about this he was kind enough to send me cake :) I think Tom is a funny, lovely, kind hearted person who has sent me this cake because lent is now over and not because he wants me to stock and sell his books in the bookshop! Thank you Tom :)

Now for the books!

Title: Abandon
Author: Meg Cabot
Released April 2011
Published by: Macmillan

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.

But all that changes when she finds her parents dead in the Redwood Forest, in what appears to be a strange double murder.

After the funeral Renée’s wealthy grandfather sends her to Gottfried Academy, a remote and mysterious boarding school in Maine, where she finds herself studying subjects like Philosophy, Latin, and the “Crude Sciences.”

It’s there that she meets Dante Berlin, a handsome and elusive boy to whom she feels inexplicably drawn. As they grow closer, unexplainable things begin to happen, but Renée can’t stop herself from falling in love. It’s only when she discovers a dark tragedy in Gottfried’s past that she begins to wonder if the Academy is everything it seems.Little does she know, Dante is the one hiding a dangerous secret, one that has him fearing for her life.

I think you're probably right. That Tom Clempson guy does seem like a real lovey, kind hearted person. In fact I might go one further and say that he might possibly be one of the best people in existence! A true saint.
(by the way, this is just a regular person, that has hacked into Tom's profile, leaving this comment, and is definitely not Tom Clempson in a desperate attempt to be universally adored. That would be so unlovely!)
