In My Mailbox - June 29
I'm running three steps behind everyone this week. Need to take a breather! In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren. Each week I give you an extra special glimpse into what books have made their way into my house! We talk about books we bought, borrowed, or begged someone to send!
I had book lust this week and plunked down some cold hard cash for:
Sliding on the Edge by C. Lee McKenzie - Word Ninja Ink. author!
When the Black Girl Sings by Bil Wright - bought one for Color Online and got myself one too!
Nothing but Ghosts by Beth Kephart - to show that book bloggers can make a difference
Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog - another Word Ninja Ink. author!
When The Whistle Blows by Fran Cannon Slayton - great reviews and possible Newbery
The Girl Who Threw Butterflies by Mic Cochrane - possible Newbery
Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell- looks fun
Smudge's Mark by Claudia Osmond - won on Twitter - great cover and summary
The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima - Wo0t!
Shelf Discovery by Lizzie Skurnick - won in contest
Zombie Love T-shirt - won in contest
Course, at this moment, I have no idea when I will get to these books! Check out It's Monday, What Are You Reading if you want to know what books I'm focusing on.
