In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (34)

In My Mailbox is a 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 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.

  7. I want to read Lie after reading a little of it on their Facebook page. I also have to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I read some of it and it is awesome. Weird, but mesmerizing! I haven't heard of Bigger Than a Bread Box, but it looks great. Don't forget Dear Bully comes out on the 6th of this month! I think all the schools need that on their shelves!
