In My Mailbox - May 17

IMM is brought to you courtesy of The Story Siren. Check out her blog as she will have Mr. Linky as well as ways you can try for more books!

I've been doing pretty well not buying books since I've been interning at the public library! Wo0t! Here's what I received:

For Review
Leftovers by Heather Waldorf
I got this from LibraryThing Early Reviewers. I request all of their young adult titles. Mostly I've seen ones from Orca Press. They make good books for reluctant readers. They aren't too long and they aren't formulaic.

Love the cover of this one. 15 y.o. Sarah's father died last year but she is still reeling from his abuse.

Neil Armstrong is My Uncle & Other Lies Muscle Man McGinty Told Me by Nan Marino
I requested this ARE from Roaring Book Press through Shelf Awareness. Sometimes I request Young Adult books but I've also requested adult ones too.

From the back:
Muscle Man McGinty is a squirrelly runt, a lying snake, and a pitiful excuse for a ten-year-old. The problem is that no one on Ramble Street knows it, but me.

Well, those have been added to my tottering pile of books to be read. Don't look for reviews too soon, but they will be coming!

What did you get?


  1. Leftovers looks great! I can't wait to read your thoughts. Happy reading.

  2. The Neil book looks interesting. Happy reading!

  3. Leftovers sounds good. I've heard good things about Orca titles. These sound like a good fit for our library.

  4. Leftovers sounds good. The cover is intriguing. Happy reading!

  5. You had a good week with some ineresting books. I have no heard of either one of them before, but now am intrigued. Especially with leftovers. I cannot wait to see what you think about them.

  6. Awesome books, Leftovers looks like quite a good book. Enjoy.


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!
