In My Mailbox (53)

Be sure to enter my current giveaways!
Blogoversary giveaway 
Banned Books Giveaway Hop!

In My Mailbox is an Internet meme hosted by The Story Siren to share new books received, purchased, or borrowed.   

So here's what I got this week!

Borrowed from the library:
  • Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tell Their Stories edited by Megan Kelley Hall and Carrie Jones (I am so grateful that this book has been written and compiled, and I cannot wait to read it!)
  • Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick (juvenile fiction)
  • Fourth Grade Rats by Jerry Spinelli (juvenile fiction) (my daughter is reading this in her (fourth grade) class, and I wanted to see what she's been reading)
  • Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading by Tommy Greenwald (juvenile fiction) (we were talking about the importance of book trailers at a reader's services meeting, and one of the librarians shared the link to this book's trailer. Hysterical--actually liked the trailer better than the book.)
  • Dog Heaven by Cynthia Rylant (picture book): Sadly, we made the decision to put one of our dogs down this week, and this book really helpd my daughter (and me, who am I kidding?) with this decision.
Received from author for review:
  • Perfected by Girls by Alfred Martino
  • The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder (for Collingswood Book Festival)
  • Tighter by Adele Griffin (also for Collingswood!)
  • He's So Not Worth It by Kieran Scott (for the author visit Kieran's doing at my library in a few weeks!)
What did you get?
Enjoy your reading!

  5. Sad that you had to put down your dog, I'm glad there was a book out there to help with that decision. He's So Not Worth it is definitely on my list of books to get - it looks great, cool that you get to meet the author.

    Happy Reading,
