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 was quite light until yesterday. I made a visit to my local used bookstore and hit a YA jackpot for my classroom library. I am quite excited about my finds there because (1) they are all hardback and (2) I did not pay more than $4 PER book (squee).
From the library:
Forgotten by Cat Patrick (audio) - I love a great YA audio book. I hope the reader does not disappoint.
A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard - I waited for several weeks for this to come in at the library. I saw her interview and cannot wait to read her book.
Entwined by Heather Dixon (audio) - I have the book, but I am now so bogged down with grading that I don't have as much free time to read, so I decided to give the audio a try. I'm listening to it right now and am really enjoying it.
I am excited about these finds. Once again, found them all in hardback for $4 or less. I cannot wait to add them to my classroom library. We are two weeks in and already my kids are looking for fresh reads.

The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Eleventh Grade Burns by Heather Brewer
Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti
Igraine the Brave by Cornelia Funke
The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe - I actually received this two weeks ago but forgot to add it to my IMM list. Can't wait to read it; sounds like an interesting dystopian novel.
That's what I've got in my mailbox this week - what's in yours? Have you read any of these novels? Do you have any other recommendations?
And be sure to return next weekend. I am attending the Decatur Book Festival, so there is no telling what I will have for the IMM post. Anyone else going next weekend?
