In My Mailbox (6)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie) where you can show off the books that you got last week.

I only got 1 book in my mailbox last week, but it's very exciting!


Between You and Me by Marisa Calin
From Goodreads:

Phyre knows there is something life-changing about her new drama teacher, Mia, from the moment they meet. As Phyre rehearses for the school play, she comes to realize that the unrequited feelings she has for Mia go deeper than she’s ever experienced. Especially with a teacher. Or a woman.  
All the while, Phyre’s best friend—addressed throughout the story in the second person, as "you"—stands by, ready to help Phyre make sense of her feelings. But just as Mia doesn’t understand what Phyre feels, Phyre can’t fathom the depth of her best friend’s feelings...until it’s almost too late for a happy ending.  
Characters come to life through the innovative screenplay format of this dazzling debut, and unanswered questions—is "you" male or female?—will have readers talking.

The reason I'm so thrilled to get it is because I got it from Marisa herself--I'll be designing an author website for her next month! So, yeah, if you go look for her website, you won't find anything for a couple of weeks XD I haven't started it yet! But you can go to Goodreads and find a short teaser video on her author page, as well as add the book to your shelf. Between You and Me (Bloomsbury USA) releases on August 7.

Thanks to Ann Stampler for introducing us! Speaking of Ann, Where It Began comes out on Tuesday! You can still enter to win one through midnight on Monday, March 5. 

That's it for me this week. What's in your mailbox?
