In My Mailbox - New Books This Week #47

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.

I haven't done an IMM for awhile because I've been so busy with teaching responsibilities, and I've been doing a lot of ebooks and netgalleys - and I'm finding it hard to keep track of those for posting, but I want to get back at it, and I got what I think will be an awesome book this week, so here it is. 

For Review

THE HERO'S GUIDE TO SAVING YOUR KINGDOM by Christopher Healy
I was lamenting my drastic lack of books with boy appeal that I've read over the last six months, and asked for recommendations on twitter, and Kate Messner said this one was really good. With Kate's rec and the fact that it is a Walden Pond Press title (and they have a strong track record for middle grades books for me) I was excited to get a copy. This one is coming in May. Thanks WPP!


*If you want to see my whole list of books that were recommended for boy appeal, it's here on goodreads.

  6. Oh, I should probably try to read some books with boy appeal, too. *grin* But alas, Adult novels written for a female audiance keep lulling me in, and here I am.. *le sigh*

    Happy Reading!
