In My Mailbox - Week of January 25th

I found this idea on Story Siren's blog here. Each week (if possible) you post about books you've bought/borrowed/received etc. You then link to others and they can link to yours. I'm going to try this out.

Books I bought:
Of course, I'm trying NOT to buy so many books. I haven't bought any in awhile but I will have some coming later this week! Check back next week for cover stories.

Books I borrowed:

This is Diamond Willow by Helen Frost. It might be a Newbery contender and I thought I'd read it before the awards are announced on Monday, January 26th.

Books I received:

In Mike We Trust by P.E. Ryan. I received this from HarperTeen on Twitter. They also giveaway books on Myspace and Facebook. You agree to post a review and then email it to them. Great program.

In Mike We Trust is the story of Garth after his dad dies. His uncle, Mike, comes to visit and Garth feels like he can get on with his own life now. Soon Uncle Mike has Garth questioning his values though. I look forward to reading this one. It sounds like a modern-day Hamlet, sort of a teen version of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. I'll tell you about it soon!

Not much this week. Which is ok by me!! I still have some library books to read.

What's in your mailbox?
