In My Mailbox is a shared posting idea run by Kristi at The Story Siren (read all about it here: In My Mailbox) for bloggers to share the books they've gotten that week to help publicize as many titles as possible. IMM is a semi-regular feature here on Teach 8 YA Book Blog to let my students know the books to be looking for on the classroom shelves and for blog readers to know what book reviews to anticipate along with building excitement about new titles coming out. All titles link to goodreads so you can add books to your "to-read" list.
I bought a bunch of books I'd been hearing good things about with discounts or gift certificates I had this week. Yay!
THE LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa & Laura Roecker
This one sounds like so much fun with a "sasstastic" main character! Can't wait to read it!
HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER by Lish McBride
This is one that I've heard a lot of good things about.
WHERE I BELONG by Gwendolyn Heasley
One of my want-to-reads for Debut Author Challenge 2011
WHEN THE STARS GO BLUE by Caridad Ferrer
Have lots of dancer students, so they'll probably like this one.
POP by Gordon Korman
Love his books for boys.
CRESCENDO (sequel to Hush, Hush) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Had several students looking for this one after reading the first.
