IMM - In My Mailbox (#2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Story Siren

The purpose of it is to post about the books we received during the past week (ARC, electronic galleys, books won in giveaways, bought or borrowed from the library - you can list anything you want!)

Here are the books I've received this week for reviews:

Jesus Potter Harry Christ is a well-reasoned and meticulously referenced (but not overly academic) non-fiction treatise on religious history, comparative mythology, astrological symbolism, and modern culture. How and why Jesus Christ, who is traditionally considered a historical figure, shares anything in common with the modern re-telling of ancient folklore that emerges in the character of Harry Potter, is the basis for this innovative investigation.  (Goodreads)

I won this in Goodreads giveaway and received in mail few days ago. I couldn't stop myself from reading a little bit and I find it really interesting! I will definitely read and review it soon! 

Have you ever gotten to the point in your life where one day is like all the rest? Where the individuality, excitement and purpose of every moment is drained of its promising complexion? Through work, school, family and routine, people strive more and more to "get by" rather than "get going." But God didn't intend for it to be like this. Every precious second in a day, all 86,400 of them, is a gift from Him to us. Our lives, that we whittle away with routine and complacency, are meant for so much more.
86,400 is the instigator for a renewed life of intention and relevance-ultimately making the most out of every single day. By showcasing how she and Christians who carry either celebrity or inspirational significance manage their daily gift, Lavaille effectively teaches readers how they can fulfill God's intended purpose.

Another book I got thanks to Goodreads! I'm not a fan of Christian fiction or non-fiction, so I don't have my hopes high for getting through the whole book. I will however give it a try and if it's good I'll review it and put it up for a giveaway :)

Latest novel by Andrea Kane, to be published in May 2011

I got this ARC for review and I have no idea what it is about. Well, we'll find out, right? Stay tuned for my review!

Becca Wilkinson is a nobody, and those that are aware of her existence know her as "that quiet girl in the back of class", "loser", or her favorite- "that chick that killed all those people".

While most people at Leeville High have long forgotten Becca's role in the devastating car wreck that happened a year ago, she still has nightmares. Her memories are in fragments and what little she remembers doesn't make sense. Memories of hearing voices and moving things without touching them.

Luke Johnston is a new kid and has all the girls at Leeville eating out the palm of his hand...except Becca. He seems drawn to her but there's something dark and dangerous about him. But he knows something about her-the true nature behind what happened during the accident. Can she let her guard down to learn the truth?
Another book I got for review :) It's an YA sci-fi/fantasy novel and it sounds fascinating! Can't wait to dive into it :)

So this is all I got this week.  Stay tuned for reviews! :)

I like the cover of The girl who disappeared twice. Wasteland cover is also creepy.
I hope I can come back here to read your review for both of books :)
