Received a review copy of Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever. from the Amazon Vine program. Sounds like a fun read!
For Jane Jones, being a vampire is nothing like you read about in books. In fact, it kind of sucks. She's not beautiful, she's not rich, and she doesn't "sparkle." She's just an average, slightly nerdy girl from an ordinary suburban family (who happens to be vampires.) Jane's from the wrong side of the tracks (not to mention stuck in the world's longest awkward phase), so she doesn't fit in with the cool vampire kids at school or with the humans kids. To top it all off, she's battling an overprotective mom, a clique of high school mean girls (the kind who really do have fangs), and the most embarrassing allergy in the history of the undead, she's blood intolerant.

Received a review copy of Chosen by Paula Bradley from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations, Inc. Sounds like a good read!
In Paula Bradley’s heart-pounding debut novel CHOSEN, Mariah’s faith, perceptions, and sanity are put to the test. After a suicide attempt, her powers can no longer be concealed. Mariah thought the woes of her powers would be extinguished by taking her life, but somehow a mysterious being saves her and sets her on a journey. The supernatural rescue enhances Mariah’s extrasensory power so much that she becomes a person of interest to the FBI, another government agency, and the media. She can’t escape the intensifying outer turmoil and she quickly finds herself tormented by nightmares and an obsession of trying to find the ambiguous character that haunts her dreams. This page-turning thriller is a trip for the reader as well as the gripping danger and unexplained happenings challenge their own beliefs on the nature of faith and the value of discovery. Is Mariah’s gift a blessing or a curse? You decide! (Goodreads)
Received Folly Beach by Dorothea Benton Frank as a surprise from the publisher. Might be an interesting summer read!
Home is the place that knows us best. . . . A woman returns to the past to find her future in this enchanting new tale of loss, acceptance, family, and love.
Also received a review copy of James Rollins' The Devil Colony from the publisher. Not sure about this one, but it might be another beach read...so I'll give it a chapter or two to see if it's my cup of tea. ;)
Deep in the Rocky Mountains, a gruesome discovery - hundreds of mummified bodies - stir international attention and fervent controversy. Despite doubts to the bodies’ origins, the local Native American Heritage Commission lays claim to the prehistoric remains, along with the strange artifacts found in the same cavern: gold plates inscribed with an unfathomable script.
