In My Mailbox #20

This is "In my mailbox" a meme run by Kristi at The Story Siren. Here's what I got this week...

Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin's magic never showed up. Now seventeen, Tamsin attends boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a lost family heirloom for him. The search—and the stranger—will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengeful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant.

Except I got the paperback version of ONCE A WITCH and it's under a different cover.  I couldn't find the cover online though--and I think the new one was very pretty, that's what got me to buy it. 

I also got...
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.  With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.  But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.  For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

HUSH, HUSH came out on paperback this week and even though I've already read it--my review--I still wanted to own it.

I've been seeing Once a Witch around a bit the past few weeks, although I hadn't heard of it before. It looks good! I might just have to pick up a copy :)
