In My Mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme sponsored by The Story Siren.  It is a way for bloggers to network and share what books they are reviewing, borrowing, and/or buying.

This week's haul is a little larger, but I was looking for a week of various reads. While I need to tackle books that I have purchased and are collecting dust, I still enjoy adding to that pile from visits to B&N and the library. 

From B&N: 
Wither by Lauren DeStefano - this was on a lot of IMM posts last week and after researching it, it looks exactly like something I am going to LOVE 

From the library this week: 
Here Lies the Librarian by Richard Peck - read The Teacher's Funeral because I'm a teacher, and now that I'm hunting for a librarian position, I thought this would be worth my time as well

Trolls on Vacation by Alan MacDonald - just looks really cute; something I can read aloud to my six-year-old, especially since his father likes to pretend he is a troll while we are out on family walks

The Goodbye Time by Celeste Conway - looks like a great tween read about friendship (and the loss of)

Crank by Ellen Hopkins - just because I love Hopkins' writing; a re-read

The Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Malone (audio) - love listening to audios while cleaning, laying out, driving; I received this novel as a gift but haven't gotten around to reading it, so I'm giving the audio a try

For Review from NetGalley:
Migrant Mother by Don Nardo - I enjoy great historical novels, especially ones aimed at younger readers; love finding books I can incorporate into my classroom curriculum

Prince William and Kate: A Royal Romance by Matt Doeden - excited about this one because I love William and Kate!

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab - as stated a bazillion times before, I love witchy stories


  1. I loved Wither--I can't wait for the next one! And I'm looking forward to reading The Near Witch, too. Check out my IMM!

  2. I loved Wither. There are a few plotholes, I thought, but on the whole it was utterly swoonworthy. Totally did the cover justice.

    Good luck on your library jobhunt!

  3. A great haul! Awesome stuff...

  4. Wow, you have a nice stack of books this week in your mailbox. I tried reading Crank but the writing was too crazy for me. LoL Which is the whole point but I just couldn't get used to it.
    Happy Reading,
