In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (2)

In My Mailbox is a shared posting concept/listing from The Story Siren (read about what it is and how it got started here: In My Mailbox).  This will be a semi-regular feature on Teach 8 YA Book Blog.
This week's In My Mailbox is mostly due to the fall Scholastic Book Club selections being so great. Thanks to them (and Random House sending a book) here are the new books that came into my classroom this week:


NEW BOOKS THIS WEEK
ARC Sent to Me:
MUSEUM OF THIEVES (The Keepers) by Lian Tanner
Sounds like an intriguing new series that fans of the Percy Jackson series might like.


Thanks Random House!




Scholastic Book Clubs TAB and Teen Readers Club Order:
ACCOMPLICE by Eireann Corrigan
Sounds like an interesting novel based on the premise of needing to stand out in today's society.




 


EMPTY by Suzanne Weyn
A new dystopian dealing with a modern concern of oil running out.


SABOTAGED: THE MISSING Book 3 by Margaret Peterson Haddix
My students have been eagerly awaiting this one by an always popular author as they've read through the first two FOUND and SENT.




WOLVES, BOYS, AND OTHER THINGS THAT MIGHT KILL ME by Kristen Chandler
Takes place by Yellowstone National Park and is a coming-of-age story of a one saving the wolves that have been reintroduced that the community is scared of. Of course the title sells it.




Pre-Ordered:
DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE UGLY TRUTH (Book 5) by Jeff Kinney
Will be delivered to my room on Nov. 9, the release date.








Needed More Copies of:
THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins
Got another copy because I can't keep them on my shelf - probably because I keep telling the students they all need to read it and they are!






THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN by Sherman Alexie
The boys that have read it have loved it, so wanted another copy to keep them reading this wonderful novel.



THE TITAN'S CURSE (PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS Book 3) by Rick Riordan
Needed another copy because I can't keep it on hand due to so many students reading the series right now.


THE SEA OF MONSTERS (PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS Book 2) by Rick Riordan
Needed to replace some that are falling apart from being read so many times!

Great books! I definitely recommend The Hunger Games, but usually tell them to buy it because they will love it! I have yet to complete my Percy Jackson series, definitely need to get the rest of them. Hope you enjoy your books :)

I hope you like Accomplice. I am a huge fan of Eireann Corrigan. I haven't read Accomplice yet, but You Remind Me of You is one of my favorites! Enjoy!
