In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren

This week was another great week for books. As soon as I figure out this whole blogging thing, I will link my reviews and other details. In the meantime, you can look me up on Goodreads if you are interested. Goodreads

First on the list are books that I have received via Amazon:

Broken Soup by Jenny Valentine
Newes from the Dead by Mary Hooper
Running for my Life by Ann Gonzalez
The Phantom Isles by Stephen Alter
Instead of Three Wishes by Megan Whalen Turner

Also, thanks to Chicago Public Library and their yearly Best of the Best conference, I learned about a ton of great books. I couldn't help but pick up a few while I was there. My selections were the following great books:

Butterflies and Moths by Nic Bishop
A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na
The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney
Over in the Hollow by Rebecca Dickinson
Book Fiesta! by Pat Mora
The Goodbye Season by Marian Hale

Finally, because I am lame, I just spent the last hour meandering around Barnes and Noble. Very sad for a Saturday night, but oh well. I got some great stuff!

After by Amy Efaw
Scarlett by Cathy Cassidy
Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor
The Ghost's Grave by Peg Kehret

What's in your mailbox?


  1. Wow you have some great books to read! I like going to B&N and I always feel bad if I leave the store empty handed. :)

    I just finished reading Tangled, the first book by Carolyn Mackler that I've read and I really liked it. I also enjoyed Hush, Hush (but not as much as Tangled). You have a lot of books that I hope to read eventually. I liked Catherine Gilbert Murdock's Princess Ben but haven't read her series about D.J. yet. Newes From the Dead sounds really good too. I read one of her other books and I really liked that one. Enjoy all your great books!

    Here is what's in my mailbox this week.
