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.
Received for review:
A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young (Goodreads): I won this ARC through Goodreads! I’ve never won any of their giveaways, so I was excited. I just finished this book and it’s wonderful!
Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic (Goodreads): Megan is the first 2012 debut author to sign up for Students Want to Know next year
Bought for memoir unit:
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah (Goodreads): We’re working on our memoir unit for English 9 and we’d like to add something current. I looked up memoirs for teens and found this one. I’ve been told it’s a tough read, but a worthwhile read.
Life Is So Good by George Dawson, Richard Glaubman (Goodreads): This was recommended by a teacher I follow on Twitter who has taught it for three years. It’s about a man who learned to read when he was 98!! I’m really looking forward to this one.
Bought because, you know, I love books:
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma (Goodreads)
Hourglass by Myra McEntire (Goodreads)
The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith (Goodreads)
