Welcome to In My Mailbox, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It’s a weekly showcase of what I received for review, from the library, or bought.
Let me start with the fact this was an awesome week book wise. Also, it was really expensive. You’ll see why in a second.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: A sweet romance set abroad? Count me in.
The Hole in the Wall by Lisa Rowe Fraustino: Picked this one up off a table at KidLitCon. It looks dystopian or at least like it has some nice pits of desperation in it.
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers: Do I need to explain my love for Courtney?
The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride: I got this one for my Cybils reading. A finished copy even!
The Beyonders: A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull: This is a new series by the author of the Fablehaven series the kids at my work are CRAZY about. I also got a sweet tote bag along with this one!
From the Library:
Scrawl by Mark Shulman: Jackie said this was one I *needed* to read as part of the Cybils reading since it has a good male voice in it. I’m excited!
Drinking at the Movies and The Fart Party by Julia Wertz: After reading reviews of these two, I couldn’t resist. Alea and I stopped at the comic book store next to the Open Book and these were my purchases.
And my biggest, most exciting purchase this week:
I preordered the nookcolor and will be joining the world of ereadership! For those of you who are appalled by the idea of ereaders or ebooks, please take a minute to read this fantastic post by Maggie Steifvater. The ereader is another reading option and is not a replacement. I was so excited I waited to buy one for this particular device: it’s run on android and with its format, it has the potential to be a mini tablet. Sweet! It’ll arrive in a few weeks.
