Hey guys, another In My Mailbox! I'm so excited this week, because I got some great books, and at our band competition last night, we broke a school record by getting a 91.35! We still got second place in Chapters, but we only lost by 2 points. Which is pretty good. Atlantic Coast Championships, here we come! ^ ^
Oops, tad off topic there. In My Mailbox is hosted/created by Kristi at The Story Siren, and Inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.
The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal (Egmont: This will be reviewed for The Romantic Times. I have to read it soon, and it looks really captivating! The ARC cover isn't as pretty, though. Thanks to Egmont and The Romantic Times.) Goodreads Info
The 10 P.M. Question by Kate de Goldi (Candlewick: This will be reviewed for Teens Read Too. I saw it on The Story Siren ages ago and was very happy to get a chance to review it. Don't you just love the cover? Thanks Jen/Candlewick!) Goodreads Info
Another Pan by Daniel and Dina Nayeri (Candlewick: I haven't read Another Faust, but I've wanted to, and this book looks really good! Hopefully I'll want to go buy the first one after reading it. This is another Teens Read Too read. Thanks again to Jen/Candlewick!) Goodreads Info
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler (Little, Brown: I won this in the giveaway they did to prevent book banning. Quite excited to read it for the first time! Thanks to Sarah and the other authors that did it, as well as Little, Brown for giving away 100 copies!) Goodreads Info
So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld (Razorbill: This is from my classroom's library [ which is very awesome. note that classroom libraries are a good thing to give to, bloggers ] and it was classic Westerfeld awesome. Some parts were a little slow, but the classic insights into the teenage mindset and trendsetting were nice, if a bit dated. Not his strongest, but if you're a fan, pick it up. Thanks to my English teacher for buying it!)
That's what I got In My Mailbox! What about you guys?
On a special note, this week I'm reading The Star of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson in honor of her passing. I'll have a special tribute review this week or next. Really try her stuff. She's made of that special pixie dust that deals with happy endings and good good characters, bad bad characters, and all of those things that make for a lovely childhood read.
