Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
Scarlett Martin has grown up in a most unusual way. Her family owns the Hopewell, a small Art Deco hotel in the heart of New York City.
When each of the Martins turn fifteen, they are expected to take over the care of a suite. For Scarlett's fifteenth birthday, she gets both a room called the Empire Suite and a permanent guest named Mrs. Amberson. Scarlett doesn't quite know what to make of this C-list starlet and world traveler. And when she meets Eric, an astonishingly gorgeous actor who has just moved to the city, her summer takes a second unexpected turn.
Before the summer is over, Scarlett will have to survive a whirlwind of thievery and romantic missteps. But in the city where anything can happen, she might just be able to pull it off.
I won this book as well as a $50 PB Teen gift card (yay!) from a Chick Lit Teens contest, and I'm so excited! I've been wanting to read this book for the longest time and now I have my own awesome paperback copy, complete with a gorgeous cover and all!

I also won this from a Chick Lit Teens contest. Once again, I can't wait to begin--I've heard great things about this book and I know that if it's by Meg Cabot, it's got to be good!

When the Snow Fell by Henning Mankell
As it has in the past, the first snow of the year signifies to Joel Gustafson his very own New Year's Eve. So when the snow begins to fall on a cold November day, Joel gets busy making new resolutions--three, to be exact.
As the winter days pass, life becomes ever more complicated. Joel has questions and the answers don't necessarily come easily, but he is determined to keep his resolutions--for his father, for himself, and for their future.
I have never heard of this book or the two previous books in this series, but Henning Mankell is apparently a well-known Swedish author, so I'll check it out to see how good it really is! This book comes out on August 11 from Delacorte Press.
