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.
Hope everyone is staying warm on this chilly Sunday morning! I am quite excited about the books I've added to my mound of reads. Finding new reads and getting my hands on reads I've been waiting for makes me soooo happy!
Purchased from B&N:
The Hunger Games: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion - I have already read this, loved this, and am now even more ready for the movie. There are no spoilers, just a lot of interesting "behind the scenes" notes and great pictures. I'm still not sold on Hutcherson as Peeta, but Collins says he is the right fit, so I will trust her author instinct.
The Rivals (Daisy Whitney) - I've been waiting for this to come out ever since reading The Mockingbirds. I will say that I do NOT like this cover. It is not working for me at all, and now it does not match the first book, which is a peeve of mine.
Tempest (Julie Cross) - I love the cover, even though I've read that it does not fit the novel. On that note, very few covers actually do, but I think I am going to enjoy the storyline.
Born Wicked (Jessica Spotswood) - I saw this as I was heading to the register. The cover attracted me first, and I am a sucker for a witchy read, especially a series. I immediately checked out the feedback on Goodreads and was satisfied enough to add it to my pile.
Checked out from the library:
Enter Three Witches (Cooney) - This year I am teaching senior English, including Macbeth. I love finding YA novels dealing with Shakespeare from different points of view. It allows me a fresh look at the play, and a bit of insight as I teach it.
The Future of Us audio (Asher & Mackler) - Love both of these authors and am excited to find this as an audio. I've been doing Audible, which is fine, but I prefer having CDs to play in my car as I drive all over town.
Subway Girl (Converse) - The cover attracted me to this novel. It reminded me a bit of Love & Leftovers, so I hope I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed that novel.
Well, that's it for this week's IMM. Have you read any of the above? Any books you think I should add to my list of reads?
