In My Mailbox (1)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. This is my first week to participate, so I am curious to see how it goes. I've enjoyed visiting other blogs and seeing what others are buying/receiving/checking out to read. 
Here are nine books I've added to my In My Mound pile. A few are new releases and others are new to paperback and one is an e-book. Enjoy!

Godmother by Carolyn Turgeon - "The true story of Cinderella's fairy godmother." Love fractured tales. Reading this for the B&N YA book club on Tuesday, June 28th...come on down!

week of June 19, 2011
Tangled by Carolyn Mackler - "The good girl, the jock, the beautiful one, and the geek. Tangle them together, and the unexpected happens." - I'm thinking Breakfast Clubish, yeah. I love Mackler's writing style.

The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate - "deception, shame, and scandal with a few hints of Macbeth?" I'm in! 

Happyface by Stephen Emond - "Sometimes you've got to fake it to make it." Looked like something I could recommend to male students.   

Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter - "Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules." Cannot wait to read this sequel! 

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky - "Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer." Sound familiar? Cannot wait to read the many parallels to modern life and where we are headed.

Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari - "The world has ended...what comes next?" I love dystopia. Don wasn't blown away by this novel, but I want to give it a shot.

Hourglass by Myra McEntire - "One hour to rewrite the past..." Need I say more? A lot of buzz for this first-time author with a solid following on Twitter (myself included). 

Abandon by Meg Cabot - purchased this on my Nook because I loved Avalon High so much. Who am I kidding; I love ALL of her books!


  1. Great books! I can't wait for Uncommon Criminals! I am looking forward to seeing what you think of it. Here's what I got this week. Happy reading!

  2. Great set! I so want to read Hourglass and Uncommon Criminals.
