Letterbox Love no.3 - 3rd June 2012

So it's been a couple of weeks since I did a Letterbox Love, and that's mostly because the week before last I received one book, so I didn't think it was worth it, but this week I've received LOADS!!! Here's a glance at what I've got to show you...

And now for a bit more info... (basically I just copy out the blurb on the back and tell you when you can buy it!)

Black Heart Blue by Louisa Reid
Hephzi and Rebecca are sixteen-year-old twins. One beautiful. One disfigured.
Their father is terrifying and violent. Their mother is meek, submissive and cold.
The twins dream of a normal life filled with laughter and love. They both just want to be accepted.
But when one pays the ultimate price for breaking the rules,the other is alone for the first time in her life.
Can she escape? And will she ever reveal how her sister really died?

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Cas Lowood is no ordinary guy - he hunts dead people.
Dead people like Anna Dressed in Blood, a beautiful, murderous ghost entangled in curses and rage. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Cas knows he must destroy her, but as her tragic past is revealed, he starts to understand why Anna has killed everyone she's ever met. 
Everyone, that is, except Cas...

The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Ananna of the Tanarau abandons ship when her parents try to marry her off to another pirate clan. But that only prompts the scorned clan to send an assassin after her. When Ananna faces him down one night, armed with magic she doesn't really know how to use, she accidentally activates a curse binding them together.
To break the curse, Ananna and the assassin must complete three impossible tasks - all while grappling with evil wizards, floating islands, haughty manticores, runaway nobility, strange magic... and the growing romantic tension between them.

Poltergeeks by Sean Cummings
Being the daughter of a witch isn't all it's cracked up to be.
When 15 year old Julie Richardson and her best friend, Marcus, witness an elderly lady jettisoned out the front door of her home, it's pretty obvious to Julie there's a supernatural connection.
After a large-scale paranormal assault on Julie's high school, her mother falls victim to an arcane spell. Now it's a race against time to find out who is responsible - or Julie won't just lose her mother's soul, she'll lose her mother's life.

Blackwood by Gwenda Bond
On Roanoke Island, the legend of the 114 people who mysteriously vanished from the Lost Colony hundreds of years ago is just a story for tourists. But when the island faces the sudden disappearance of 114 people right now, an unlikely pair of 17 year olds may be the only hope of bringing them back. 
Miranda, a misfit girl from the island's most infamous family, and Phillips, an exiled teen criminal who hears the voices of the dead, must dodge everyone from federal agents to long-dead alchemists as they work to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony. The one thing they can't dodge is each other.

At first, he thinks the power to Shift is pretty cool. But as his world quickly begins to unravel around him, he realises that each time he uses his power, it results in terrible, unforeseen consequences. In a world where anything can change with a single thought, Scott has to decide exactly where he stands.
