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.
This was a great week for books!
Books I Bought:
The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin by Josh Berk – This is on my 2010 Debut Author Challenge list and I’ve been searching for it EVERYWHERE. I finally had to order a copy. I’m about half-way through it and am really enjoying it 🙂
Girl, Stolen by April Henry- First, I love the cover! I started this one too, and it’s going to be a great read! I can’t wait to tell my students about this one.
Books Given to Me:
What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know by Sonya Sones- My student, Tristan, bought this for me! I’ve read Sones’ other two books in verse, but I haven’t had a chance to read this one yet. Tristan, you’re wonderful! Thank you 🙂
Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott- During Banned Books Week I wrote a post about LDG and why it should be read. I linked it on Twitter hoping Elizabeth would read it and she did! She sent me a message thanking me and I told her how immensely popular it is with my students. After hearing this, she offered to send me some copies and I accepted her gracious offer. Oh my gosh!! She sent me four copies!!! My students and I were incredibly excited when they showed up at school. Tomorrow when I’m at work I’ll take a picture of the copies I still have on my shelf. Even with the extra copies, it’s hard to keep them all available. Thank you, again, Elizabeth! You are an amazing person! 😀
