In My Mailbox is hosted by the awesome Story Siren. If you haven't checked out her blog yet... I don't believe you.
So, I spent most of this week and part of the last in Egypt, so my books this week are ones that arrived after I wrote the scheduled post for last weekend's IMM, or that I've previously forgotten to include (I do that sometimes).
Visiting Egypt was a fantastic experience, and I would definitely recommend that you go there if you can. We took a trip to Luxor to check out the Valley of the Kings and some amazing temples while we were there - I'll probably put up a few photos in the week, once I've filtered out all the embarrassing ones. Which are many.
On to the books...
The Babysitter's Club (Books 1-3) - Ann M. Martin
Kristy's just had her best idea ever! But things don't always go to plan, and sometimes babysitting's only half the trouble...
Who is the mysterious phantom caller that terrifies Claudia?
And how can the Babysitters Club help Stacey with her secret problem?
I know I'm way too old for these, but I just love the whole nostalgia thing. Besides, I love doing retro reviews. I missed the Babysitter's Club week that was running at other blogs a few weeks back, but I still want to revisit this series.
Zombie Blondes - Brian James
Summary from Goodreads: From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong. A lot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet.
And then, on Hannah's first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders — the most popular girls in school. The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in appearance: blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.
But Hannah wants desperately to fit in — regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: if she doesn't watch her back, she's going to be blonde and popular and dead — just like all the other zombies in this town....
This one was an impulse buy. Sometimes those pay off because I don't have super-high expectations or preconceived ideas. And this one sounds pretty fun.
Dead End (Fear Street) - R.L. Stine
Summary from book cover: Natalie Erickson and her friends share a terrible secret. They were all in the car that foggy night - the night someone died at the dead end.
Now someone knows too much, and there's danger ahead. Natalie just wants out of this nightmare. But that's the problem with dead ends - there's no way out!
I loved Fear Street books back in the day. Alongside Point Horror titles they were my number one guilty pleasure. Recently I reread one of my fave Point Horror titles, The Babysitter, and was thrilled that it stood the test of time. So now I'm hoping for a double whammy with this one.
So, what did everyone else get?
