in my mailbox (3) June 28, 2009

Posted by Katie in in my mailbox.

In My Mailbox explores the contents of my “mailbox” on a weekly basis. I’ll be using this as a book and contest round-up tool to show what I’m getting ready to review. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here at The Story Siren.

Library Check-out


Stargazer by Claudia Gray, Willow by Julia Hoban, and The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan.

Books Purchased


Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog, On the Bright Side, I’m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God by Louise Rennison, and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

(I got tired of waiting for The Hunger Games to come in on ILL. I’m number 48 on the list — that could take until the end of the summer. But I had a 25% off coupon at Borders. Yay!)


I was lucky enough to snag an ARC this week that I’m super excited about.


Hate List
By: Jennifer Brown

Five months ago, Valerie Leftman’s boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets.

Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.
