in my mailbox (9). August 15, 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


“What I Saw and How I Lied” by Judy Blundell, “It’s Not You, It’s Me” by Kerry Cohen Hoffmann, and “Nothing But Ghosts” by Beth Kephart.

Books Purchased


“Love is the Higher Law” by David Levithan, “Before I Die” by Jenny Downham, and “When You Reach Me” by Rebecca Stead. Should ship sometime on Monday/Tuesday.

No ARCs this week, but there’s always next week. Hope everyone else had an awesome mailbox this week!

10. Darcy (library lounge lizard) - August 16, 2009

I really need to find time to read What I Saw and How I Lied…I’ve heard such great things about it! Enjoy :o)

11. Jaime (BookNerd) - August 16, 2009

I am not familiar with any of these but they look GREAT! Enjoy!

12. Callie (Handle Like Hendrix) - August 16, 2009

What I Saw… and It’s Not You… are both books I’ve been meaning to read. Enjoy!

13. Sammee - August 16, 2009

Before I Die is such an amazing book! You’ll need tissues though! Really fancy Nothing but Ghosts – it looks really good and I’ve read some great reviews for it. Happy reading!

14. Mandy - August 16, 2009

I haven’t read any of these. Thanks for the heads up!

15. danielle - August 16, 2009

I loved “it’s not you, its me.” Really good.


16. booknerdsnet - August 17, 2009

Aww you’re lucky! Our libarary never has anything released within like the last year! The only new books I think they probably have are the Mortal Instrument books 😦 I’m looking forward to reading Nothing But Ghosts though! I hope you enjoy!

17. Sarah H. - August 17, 2009

I LOVED When You Reach Me. I described it as near perfect earlier this week, so that will tell you how much I loved it. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. I *do* think that the cover is terrible. I just don’t know if I can sell it to a kid…..

18. Samantha LeAnne - August 18, 2009

The 3 you checked out are all on my TBR list, and I am jealous of Love is the Higher Law. I love David Levithan, he is a genius! Happy reading!
