April Set from Bookcase.club #bccunboxing

Woohoo. More books for me to indulge in. When a new set arrives in the mail from Bookcase.club, I want to literally drop everything else I'm doing, and rip the box apart to see what they have sent me for the month.
Yes, I get that excited over books. If you don't, well, you probably just need to find some new literature to read. I promise you---there is a good book out there for everyone.
Anyhow, I was beyond ecstatic when I opened up this box, since there was actually a book inside by one of my favorite authors from my days as a teenager.
Francesca Lia Block. The book is called, The Elementals.
I was always intrigued by her very unique and eccentric style of writing. She is plain awesome. I'm truly enjoying the book.


Synopsis
The Elementals is on one level an intriguing coming-of-age novel about a young woman, Ariel Silverman, facing the challenges of her first years away at college in Berkeley, California, while her mother battles cancer at home in Los Angeles. But the book takes on deeper, stranger meanings when we realize that Ariel is haunted by the disappearance of her best friend, Jeni, who vanished without a trace a few years before, closing Ariel's heart and changing her forever.  Ariel wonders if she will ever be fully alive, until she meets three mysterious, beautiful and seductive young people living in a strange old house in the Berkeley hills.  Through them Ariel will unravel the mystery of her best friend's disappearance and face a chilling choice.

The other book, "Lies Beneath", by Anne Greenwood Browne, is a paranormal romance!!! Oh , and there are mermaids in it. Fun reading times ahead.

Synopsis
Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans and absorb their positive energy. Usually, they select their victims at random, but this time around, the underwater clan chooses its target for a reason: revenge. They want to kill Jason Hancock, the man they blame for their mother's death.

It's going to take a concerted effort to lure the aquaphobic Hancock onto the water. Calder's job is to gain Hancock's trust by getting close to his family. Relying on his irresistible good looks and charm, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter Lily. Easy enough, but Calder screws everything up by falling in love - just as Lily starts to suspect there's more to the monster-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined, and just as the mermaids threaten to take matters into their own hands, forcing Calder to choose between them and the girl he loves.

One thing's for sure: whatever Calder decides, the outcome won't be pretty.
