In My Mailbox (5)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme sponsored by The Story Siren.  It’s a way for bloggers to share what books they’ve received for review, borrowed from the library, or bought from the store. 

I bought way too many books this week–I love it! 😀 

Bought From the Store:
Zombies vs. Unicorns edited by Justine Larbalestier & Holly Black- I’ve heard so much about this book that I just had to buy it!  I think I might read some of the stories to my freshmen 🙂

Torment by Lauren Kate- Woo hoo!  I’ve been looking forward to this since I finished Fallen earlier this year.  And the cover is so pretty!

Freefall by Mindi Scott- I just bought this yesterday.  I love that it’s written from a guy’s point of view.  Hopefully it will be enjoyed by my male students.

What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell- I’ve been wanting to read this for some time, so when I saw it at the used book store yesterday I was pumped!  Plus, it’s in super great condition.

Already Read, but Needed Extra Copies:
Right Behind You & What Happened to Cass McBride both by Gail Giles- These are two of my most popular choices among my reluctant readers.  This is now my third copy of Right Behind You and second of What Happened to Cass McBride.  I can’t keep them on my shelf!

Someone Like You & Just Listen both by Sarah Dessen- These are a couple of the most popular among the girls in my classes.  Plus, I found them at the used book store and it doesn’t even look like they’ve been read!

What a great week for books!  What did you receive? 🙂

    Great list! Your replacement copies are some of the most popular in library, too! I purchased Freefall this week, too!

    My IMM is here:

  2. Freefall looks really good.

    And the books that go in your library are the same ones flying in mine, too!

  3. Great books! I couldn’t get through What I Saw… but I think I’d probably like it better if I was in a different mindframe at the time. Zombies v. Unicorns seems very interesting.

  4. Freefall looks good, and Sarah Dessen is amazing! Enjoy!

  5. I’ve seen Torment on a few other people’s IMM! Must be a good read.

    I love the covers of Dessen’s book, but I’ve only read one or two. I’ll have to check more out!

    Happy reading week!

  6. Great books! I’ve heard awesome things about Freefall and I LOOOOVE Sarah Dessen! Happy Reading 🙂

  7. Oooh you’ve got some good ones here. And, seeing as my personal philosophy is “One can never have too many Sarah Dessen books,” I fully support those last two finds!

  8. I also bought a bunch of Sarah Dessen books last week, in fact I read *Just Listen* this morning, and have already started *Along For The Ride* … Jandy Nelson’s *The Sky is Everywhere* still has to be my favourite contemporary book EVER, but they’re good reads 🙂

  9. I bought Zombies vs. Unicorns because Meg Cabot is in it <3

    I also have Mindi Scott's book "Freefall" because it turns out it's the stepdaughter of one of my mom's friends. She was in town this weekend and took her photo everywhere with the book like it was a traveling gnome.

    You had a great haul! I just got a couple Sarah Dessen books this week, too. I've only read one, but I know I eventually want to get through everything she's written, so I pick them up as I come across them.

I love comments!
