In My Mailbox - February 1

In My Mailbox - this is where I tell you what books I received in the past week. This is from the Story Siren. See directions here.

Books I bought:

I have been looking forward to Envy by Anna Godberson since this past summer! It's finally here and my daughter snagged it and went to her dad's! She won't be back until next tomorrow! What a good mom I am, she's still alive!

I got The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness because we are reading it for 8th grade book discussion group. I read it in two days. The second was a quiet day in the school library. It was awesome. It made me cry. The ending was wide open though. I'll tell you about the sequel on one of those Waiting on Wednesday posts.

Literate Lives gave such a good review of The Last Invisible Boy by Evan Kuhlman here, that I had to get this book. I can't wait to dive into it.

Books I borrowed:

I enjoyed reading the first Moxy Maxwell book so I picked up Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank You Notes by Peggy Gifford.

Books I received:
I didn't receive any books this week. Whine. Anyone know how to receive more ARCs?

Ok, that's it for me. What are you reading this week?


  1. You have a great selection of books. Your borrowed book, looks hillarious and I cannot wait to see what you think about it :)

  2. I have to see if my library has The Knife of Never Letting Go. The cover is certainly eerie and intriguing.

    Happy Readings! :D

  3. I can't wait to read Envy, only four months to go!

  4. I heard the Knife of Never Letting Go is really good. Let us know.

  5. Can't wait for ENVY! But I'll have to read RUMORS first!

  6. Oh wow! The Last Invisible Boy sounds awesome. I really want to read it now!!!


  7. So jealous that you got Envy!

    And wow, your Knife.. cover is very different to the UK one!

  8. I have been sending my students to your blog to read your reviews and look for books that they want to add to their reading list. They love your book reviews and have many "books on board" for when they finish their current reads.

    Thanks a bunch!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
