In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (17)

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.

 For Review (reviewing for Book Divas)



THE IRON DAUGHTER by  Julie Kagawa
Book 2 in the Iron Fey series. I really need to get going on reading this series - I've heard fabulous things about it!





WILL WORK FOR PROM DRESS by Aimee Ferris
Sounds like a super-cute read, and we're getting close to that time of year.






Received



WAR AND WATERMELON by Rich Wallace
Sounds like an interesting middle grades historical during Woodstock that should grab boys' attention. Thanks, Penguin Young Readers!




CHIME by Franny Billingsley
Thanks Dial / Penguin Books!

I've heard fabulous things about the Iron Fey series too. I haven't read that, but it's definitely a series I'd love to finally read!

I just read Chime and it was fantastic! Very funky and quirky. I've heard great things about the Iron Fey series, too, but haven't read it yet. Gotta get on that!

Years ago, I read another book by Franny Billingsley that I just loved (The Folk Keeper). I keep hearing good things about Chime. Looking forward to your review!

Chime looks excellent. I can't wait to read it.

I have The Iron King, but haven't read it yet. I haven't really gotten into the fae genre, but I hear nothing but great things about this one.

Fab set! I loved Iron Daughter and I really want to read Chime.

Chime was so unique. I hope you and your students enjoy it. I also want to read The Iron Daughter since I enjoyed The Iron King so much. Happy reading and good luck with your dystopian book club....sounds like a lot of fun!
