In My Mailbox (25)

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 feel like I’ve been a bad blogger because I have not been able to keep up since school started a couple weeks ago!  I’m sure I’ll get back in the groove soon **fingers crossed**.

Books Purchased:

Hush by Eishes Chayil (Goodreads): I love the cover for this one and the summary is really intriguing.  I’ve been on a realistic fiction kick for almost a month now, so I’m sure this will be read soon.

Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick (Goodreads): I’ve read some positive reviews for this, but the real selling point is that it takes place in Michigan.  I want to read this one sooner rather than later so I can hand it off to my students.

Supernaturally by Kiersten White (Goodreads): I finally bought my copy!  I read Paranormalcy last fall, so I guess it makes sense for me to read the sequel this fall 🙂

The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski (Goodreads): My book club has grown this year!  We had our first meeting last Tuesday and decided that each person will get a chance to pick the book we read.  Tristan drew first and she decided on The Sweetest Thing.  I have an ARC that Christina sent me in the spring for my kids to read for their Students Want to Know interview with her, but because I have a bigger group this year, I had to buy a finished copy so more kids can read it at the same time.  I’m excited to hear their thoughts!


  1. Heh, I did a double-take for a sec since we have the same blog theme.. haha..

    The cover for The Sweetest Thing looks deeeelish! 🙂

  2. Umm…I’m pretty sure my IMM this week started off with the exact same sentiment – no time in the first few weeks of school to read. I think The Sweetest Things sounds so good – I can’t wait to hear what your group thinks of it so I can decide if I need to buy it for my classroom 🙂

      I’ll definitely let you know what my group thinks of The Sweetest Thing. I’ll ask them if they think it’s okay for MS kids 🙂

  3. You picked up some great books this week. Hush looks especially good- looking forward to your review!

  4. I didn’t realize that Ashes takes place in Michigan. I might have to read it now. I wasn’t going to because the reviews I’ve read make it sound way too creepy for my liking.

    I read The Sweetest Thing this summer and really enjoyed it.

  5. I just love the cover for The Sweetest Thing. I have a huge sweet tooth, so I can’t help but fall for deliciouus looking covers.

  6. Great books this week! Hush looks awesome! Feel free to check out my IMM:

    Happy reading!

  7. Awesome books! I have Ashes but I had NO idea it took place in MI. That definitely moves it a little higher on my TBR list. Also, I need to read The Sweetest Thing and Supernaturally very soon! I love the cover for TST, the little heart looks yummy and as for Supernaturally, I loved Paranormalcy so I there’s no doubt the second one will be enjoyable as well. Congrats on the growing book club. That is super exciting!!!

  8. Those are all great books. I’ve been looking forward to Ashes for a while. Great reviews so far on it.
