In My Mailbox E-book Edition #19 + Weekly Wrap Up

In My Mailbox is a weekly bookish meme where we show off all the books we've gotten over the week. Created by Kristi over at The Story Siren, and now hosted by Gabrielle over at The Mod Podge Bookshelf.

My E-books: 
Synopsis: For Emily Wright, turning fifteen changes everything. Because that’s the night she begins her transformation into a monster. 

A curse placed on her family hundreds of years ago leaves Emily destined to morph into a half-snake creature with only one intent: to kill. Desperate for a cure, she and her best friend Toby search for answers. What they discover is that there’s more to the curse, which might explain why every member of the male species suddenly lusts for her—and why Toby stares at her in a way a best friend shouldn’t.

As the serpent side battles to take over, Emily races to find the cure before she claims her first victim.

Synopsis: "Banjos, Boats and Butt Dialing" is the third installment in Mike Ball's "What I've Learned... So Far" series of books. In it the Erma Bombeck Award-winning humorist grapples with topics ranging from becoming a grandfather, to rabbit hunting, to the Zen of a middle-aged guy trying to cope with cleavage. The book is a compilation of 74 entries from Mike's nationally-syndicated column, What I've Learned... So Far. His homespun wit, sharp sense of humor, and ability to connect with readers on an emotional level have been compared to Mark Twain, Erma Bombeck, Robert Benchley, and Ernie Pyle.

Synopsis: The last time she checked, Mia Carrington was pretty sure that she was a normal girl with a completely ordinary life.

She goes to high school, has a crush on the gorgeous and mysterious new boy in town, and has strange dreams that she can’t help but feel are real somehow.

Okay, so maybe she’s not all that normal after all.

A freak accident changes Mia’s life forever when she is thrown into another world and left to deal with the revelation that she is the daughter of the King of the Light Elves. Throw in an ominous prophecy predicting that Mia will break a curse unleashing the Dark Elves on the world and well, things don’t look too good.

There is danger lurking at every corner in this strange world and Mia isn’t sure who she can trust…
The only thing she is certain of is that the Dark Elves know about her, and they will stop at nothing until they have her.

Synopsis: Cat, Kassie, Sian and Loi are anything but damsels in distress.
Fed up with a lack of decent male specimens they cast a love spell in the hopes of finding their soul-mates. And inadvertently land themselves on another planet. Oops.

The Arrival, follows the girls' adventures as they stumble through a foreign and often hostile world where humans are NOT at the top of the food chain.
Friendships are forged and love teeters on the horizon while the threat of civil war looms thanks to the girls' very unexpected 'gifts'.
Will the girls master these gifts in time to survive a war in which, not only are they the ultimate weapons, but also the ultimate prize?
