In My Mailbox - New Books This Week #49

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'm supposed to be on a book buying ban until after the Scholastic Warehouse Sale, IRA Convention, and ALA Convention; however, I really wanted to read both of these, and I've had students bugging me about the sequel and asking for more free verse, so I broke down and got them.

LOVE AND LEFTOVERS by Sarah Tregay










PERCEPTION (sequel to CLARITY) by Kim Harrington

  1. Is Clarity any good? Just trying to figure out if it's something I really need to read. I've seen it around, but it never really caught my interests. Great haul, and I understand the struggles of a book buying ban. Happy reading!

    1. I liked Clarity quite a bit, it grabs you right from the start, and my students LOVE it - it's been passed from student to student since I first booktalked it and passed it on.

  2. I think every book lover understands you, don't worry, at least you only got two books!
    Happy Reading!

  3. Love and Leftovers looks really cute and believe it or not, I STILL haven't read Clarity. I need to move it up higher on my TBR pile. I am so excited to find another middle school English teacher that blogs! I'm a new follower and can't wait to check out some of your reviews. Good luck with grading your research papers....I have a feeling I'll be doing it all day!
