In My Mailbox - April 3 - Part 1

Ah. Time for me to tell you what books I received this week. This meme courtesy of The Story Siren. Check out her blog for more books and contests!


Yes, I'm not supposed to being more books. I know. But I couldn't help it. Now I have my virtual credit though so that will help for a month or two!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Willow by Julia Hoban


These two books were the talk of the YA blogosphere and were on my Waiting on Wednesdays posts. I will review them over on Book Blather rather than here though. I already finished If I Stay and will get to Willow soon.


Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Outside Beauty by Cynthia Kadohata


I got these from the library. Perfect Chemistry follows the age-old story of love with one person from the wrong side of the tracks. Let's see if Ms. Elkeles puts a new spin on it. Jellicoe Road won the Printz back in January 2009. I'm slowly working my way down that list. Outside Beauty is a new Cynthia Kadohata. I enjoyed Kira-Kira and Cracker! so hope to enjoy this one too!

Queen of Cool
by Cecil Castellucci
London Calling
by Edward Bloor
by Ellen Potter
Five Minutes More
by Darlene Ryan


The first two books I traded Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange to a student to read over break and she's letting me read Queen of Cool and London Calling. I've read The Plain Janes and Boy Proof and loved them both. I've read Tangerine and Taken by Edward Bloor. Five Minutes More is courtesy of LibraryThing and I must say - I LOVED IT!

Coolest thing I received this week is the ARC of SLOB by Ellen Potter. I follow her on twitter - @ellenpotter8 - and asked for a copy to review. She SIGNED the ARC and sent a personal note. How cool is that!!! She is nerdtastically awesome and I can't wait to read this!

That's some of what I have! What do you have in your mailbox this week?
