In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (21)

In My Mailbox is a shared posting idea run by Kristi at The Story Siren (read all about it here: In My Mailbox) for bloggers to share the books they've gotten that week to help publicize as many titles as possible. It's like a little preview on what book reviews to anticipate along with a way to build excitement about new titles coming out. All titles link to goodreads so you can add books to your "to-read" list.

*Unfortunately, Blogger is not letting me insert pictures, so this week is without :(
For Review:
MY LIFE, UNDECIDED by Jessica Brody
Thanks Macmillan Children's!
BACK WHEN YOU WERE EASIER TO LOVE by Emily Wing Smith
Thanks Dutton/Penguin!


Bought
THRONE OF FIRE (The Kane Chronicles Book 2) by Rick Riordan
Day I got it I had a student ask me when I would have it available for check out. Needless to say, I haven't gotten my hands back on it yet and probably won't until the school year ends.
THE GIRL WHO WAS ON FIRE: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy 
Still not ready to let this series go, and there are some fantastic authors who contributed!
THE GODDESS TEST by Aimee Carter
Hearing a lot of good things about this one. I love mythology themed books.
DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth 
I read the ARC of this a few months ago, but had to get another copy. Exciting, thrilling book. My students in my dystopian book club are loving it!

WHERE SHE WENT by Gayle Forman
Again, read the ARC, but needed another copy because I can't keep it on the shelf. It's AMAZING - this is an obsession book! You must read it if you haven't, but read IF I STAY first!

  1. Great books! I got Divergent a week a go. Didn't like as much as I thought I would. But it's still good. Where She Went is good too. And I mean really, really good! Looking forward to reading The Goddess Test. Happy reading! And also, your blog is so cute. :p

  2. The girl who was on fire sounds good! The Hunger Games is so awesome.

    I just bought Divergent last week, and I can't wait to read it! I've heard sooo many good things about it.
