In My Mailbox (18)

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

This is my first post of the new year, and I realize it has been a while since I've done one. Oh life, why do you have to get in my way? 

Purchased from B&N:

Cupcakes Diaries: Emma on thin icing (book 3)
Cupcake Diaries: Alexis and the perfect icing (book 4)
Cupcake Diaries: Katie, batter up! (book 5)
This series is by Coco Simon. If you've not read them yet, you really should. They are all about friendship and staying true to oneself while growing up. They are perfect for your ten-year-old nervous about middle school

The Zombie Chasers: Sludgment Day by John Kloepfer
If you have not yet discovered this series, you should! It is perfect for that reluctant fourth grader in your life. The plot points are adorable and the illustrations are fun. Solidifies my position as TEAM ZOMBIE!

Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay
When I saw Lauren Myracle had a blurb on the cover, I knew I had to read it. If it's good enough for Myracle, it will be good enough for me! Plus, it is written in lyrical form, which I love.

Witch & Wizard: The Gift by James Patterson
I'm not a big fan of Patterson's writing, but I have read the first book. Now that this is in paperback, I decided to add it to my mound of reads. I just hope it's better than the first one, which was an okay read.
The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix 
This seems like it will be an interesting read. I hope this lives up to my expectation.

Those are the new reads I've added to my mound in the last week. What's in your mound? Have you read any of the above? Do you have other suggestions for me?
Happy Reading!
