In My Mailbox - June 15

This was a wonderful week for me. I received a lot of books I requested and bought a couple I had my eyes on! In My Mailbox is brought to you courtesy of The Story Siren.

I bought two books this week. I had a gift card and a coupon that were burning a hole in my pocket.

Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard - The Amazing Dancer thought the story sounded great and loved the cover so we got it.

The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - I've been hearing a lot about these books so I got the first one to read at the end of summer break.

Begged For
Hollywood is Like High School With Money by Zoey Dean - from Hachette

from Waterbrook/Multnomah
The Veil by Diane Noble
Tomorrow's Treasure by Linda Lee Chaikin

Kurt Wallander Mystery Series by Henry Mankell - from BookDivas

Freaked by JT Dutton - this is on my I Wanna Read It list and the author asked to send me one! How cool is that!

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson - I'm a fan of Mistborn and the Alacatraz books so I put this on my list and received this beautiful book from Tor! Brandon Sanderson says:

The concept of color as life fascinated me. When something dies in our world, the color fades from it—green plants become brown and human bodies lose their color, becoming pale as the blood drains to the bottom of the corpse. In a lot of ways, color is a representation of life itself.

Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiana - Thanks to J from Harper for this! Read it in one sitting and it was awesome. Look for my teaser next week and review closer to pub date. Picking up all of her books to read!

The Bystander by James Preller - Yeah! E from Feiwel and Friends sent us TEN copies! The teachers and I were so excited - Every copy is being read right now, except mine - I finished it -and it was even better than I thought it would be. Look for a review closer to pub date.

The Big Stone Gap series by Adriana Trigiana
Red Blazer Girls: The Ring of Rocamadour by Michael D. Beil
- possible Newbery
