In My Mailbox (29)

In My Mailbox is a meme originally hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren (click for more information) that shares all the new books you've bought, borrowed, received, or traded for the week.

I didn't have the best week, but it's OK since now I have time to catch up on all my other reads! :) 

Received/for review:

Top 8 by Katie Finn
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)

Madison MacDonald
16
Putnam, CT
Status: Single? 

About Me:
Everything in my life was working out. I had my three best friends, a brand-new boyfriend, and the lead in the school play. Aside from that history paper I hadn't started, things felt perfect. 

Then I returned from spring break to find my Friendverse profile hacked. Someone clearly out to ruin me had spilled the most damaging secrets - AND posted the worst photos of me ever taken - online.
Now my boyfriend and I are broken up, half the school hates me, and I'm in deep trouble.
Goals: 

Get my boyfriend back, figure out who could have done this, and clear my name! 

Also, pass history.

This sounds like a really cool read! :)

Status Updates:

mad_mac   Nate and I have been together for two months, and it’s wonderful!  Life is good!

mad_mac  Well, except for the fact that I still might be failing history.

mad_mac         And I no longer have a BFF.

mad_mac         But aside from those things!

mad_mac         Okay.  So, um, apparently I’ve just been put in charge of the school’s priceless heirloom.

mad_mac         And the assistant headmaster has a vendetta against me.

mad_mac         And it seems I’m being blackmailed.

mad_mac         Gathering together a crew. I’m going to try and pull off a heist.  Without getting caught. Or expelled. Or arrested.

mad_mac         Also, I think I may have just accidentally wrecked my relationship. . . .

Madison MacDonald is trying not to panic.
 
I think I'm going to love the format of this one. This is the sequel for Top 8, but I'm pretty sure you can read it without reading Top 8 first. Thanks so much to Chelsey Hall and Big Honcho Media for sending in these two books. Look out for a giveaway of both coming very soon :)

*I didn't get any books from the library since unfortunately it's closed for repairs for another week or so :( Also you've probably noticed that I haven't had many new posts lately. I've been going through a lot of personal issues I need to fix and I'm going to be transitioning from homeschooling back to public school in the next couple of days so I"ll be taking a mini blogging break. I'll write up an official post soon :)
