in my mailbox (15). September 26, 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


“The Tear Collector” by Patrick Jones and “Ivy” by Julie Hearn.



“Magic Study” by Maria V. Snyder, “Lucky” by Rachel Vail, “Secret Society” by Tom Dolby, “North of Beautiful” by Justina Chen Headley, “Derby Girl” by Shauna Cross (although, it’s now re-titled “Whip It” because of the movie), and “The Cupcake Queen” by Heather Hepler.

[Yes, Borders is still having buy two, get one free. It’s a horrible sale. And next week is educator savings which means I get to buy prize books/Teen Book Club books for the library!]

That’s it for me this week. What’s new for you?

Have heard good things about both The Tear Collector and The Cupcake Queen, and Maria V Snyder is really good, but I’m not familiar with the others. Enjoy!
