In My Mailbox - March 1

My mailbox was pretty empty this week, boo. That's ok though, I have to catch up on my reading. If you want to see what's in other people's mailboxes, check out The Story Siren, she got 35 books this week!!!

Books I borrowed:

Wondrous Strange by Leslie Livingston

Wondrous Strange

I love the cover of this book. It kinda reminds me of the Wicked Lovely books. I bought it for our school library and decided I should be the first to read it so I brought it home to read!!

You can check out a trailer for the book on Lesley's website.

Books I begged for:

Fade to Blue by Sean Beaudoin
I totally loved this book. I read it the day I received the ARC from Little, Brown on Facebook. Fade to Blue is not only the title, it tells the story of two characters in the book, Kenny Fade and Sophie Blue. The chapter titles were pretty cool because they go from 0 and count up, then there's a comic, and then it counts down to 0 again. All 3 stories are related. We follow Sophie as she tries to figure out what happened to her dad and why is that psycho ice cream truck always following her! If you like smart, funny reads loaded with pop culture, music references, and sarcasm this is your book. It also has virtual reality and comix! What, what! I have to wait to write a full review because one of my former students snagged my ARC and ran off with it! Please stay tuned for more exciting information!

PS - I snagged the cover from Sean Beaudoin's Facebook fansite because I couldn't find one at my usual source!

PPS: You can read an excerpt, here!
