In My Mailbox #1

It's Tuesday and the week has already begun, but as I've just experienced the nice feature "In My Mailbox" by The Story Siren  I want to tell you which novels are in my mailbox this week.

As I've just started  Miss Page-Turner's City of Books I haven't got any books in my mailbox yet but I purchased one and am planning to order another one

 A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

 The first one is A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, which I decided to read because Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments, embedded allusions to it in her new book Clockwork Angel (which I adore, as you can read in my review here ) and I will definitely go mad if I don't understand the connections between both novels. 

Another reason reading this novel is Charles Dickens being one of the great classic authors and I haven't even read one one his famous works.

 Crash into me by Albert Borris

 I actually caught a glimpse of this book's cover on another blog and was immediately attracted by the intimacy the couple shares. I thought of it as a romance, comedy kind of novel and was then surprised to read  the Amazon summary as it says: 

Owen, Frank, Audrey, and Jin-Ae have one thing in common: they all want to die. When they meet online after each attempts suicide and fails, the four teens make a deadly pact: they will escape together on a summer road trip to visit the sites of celebrity suicides...and at their final destination, they will all end their lives. As they drive cross-country, bonding over their dark impulses, sharing their deepest secrets and desires, living it up, hooking up, and becoming true friends, each must decide whether life is worth living--or if there's no turning back. 

I want to save those kids, but I can't! They have to find a way to save themselves, but I need to know at least there is a way for them... This one is definitely planned to be bought soon! 

 Just two books so in my mailbox this week, but I am happy to share something with you. Feel free to post something about your weekly mailbox in my comments!
