In My Mailbox Take 3

Yay to The Story Siren for starting this cool feature!
Here's this week's book haul--summaries courtesy of!

Parties and Potions by Sarah Mlynowski
  Perfect hair, cute clothes, healthy tans-life's a breeze when you're a witch! Even special witchcraft classes Rachel agrees to attend with Miri turn out to be fun. The sisters meet other teen witches just like them-who knew? Everyone's preparing for a magical party called a Samsorta-a debutante ball for witches. And it wouldn't be a ball without warlocks. Cute ones. Like Adam, who wants to slow dance with Rachel, and ski with her in the Rockies-on a school night! Of course, Rachel is madly in love with her boyfriend, Raf. So why can't she bring herself to tell Adam-funny, charming Adam-that Raf exists?
  Rachel knows Raf likes her. Maybe even, gulp, loves her. But Raf doesn't know her secret. Unlike Adam, Raf doesn't know who she really is. And she can never tell him. Or can she?
  I love this series, and I can't wait to find out what's happening to Rachel in the fourth book! It sounds cute and creative-but I hope things work out between Rachel & Raf! Thanks to Random House for sending me a copy!

The Interns: Fashionistas by Chloe Walsh
  Fashion-it's an obsession for millions. But for four lucky, talented girls, fashion is a full-time, style-transforming...internship in New York City! Some might call it work, but as interns at high-end Couture magazine, Callie, Nadine, Ava, and Aynsley are workin' it in style.
   Callie Ryan: Innocent aspiring designer or claws-out fashion phony?
   Nadine Van Buren: Brings the party. Loves to party (even if it's a pity party).
   Ava Barton: Happy to be here--and about to take over!
   Aynsley Rothwell: Sexy sociality with a killer wardrobe--and the attitude to match.
   Hanging with the Couture interns is what's in this season. But who's the glamorous sage behind the Fashionistas blog serving up style wisdom and sartorial send-ups?
   It's enough to spark a hot-and-heavy fashion frenzy. Hold on to your on and find out.
  Got this one at Borders-looks a bit shallow but good none the less!

  Not a lot this week, but this may be a good thing--my shelves are jammed, and I've got tons to read! (:

I am going to start reading Sarah Mlynowski's series. It sounds super cute.

I thought about buying one of The Interns books, but it wasn't the first one and I thought I'd be lost. Can't wait to see what you think!
