In My Mailbox (2)

Welcome to this week's In My Mailbox post! In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers talk about the books they received in the mail or checked out from the library over the week.


My week was quiet on the library front, but I did get a nice box from Scholastic this week which included:




Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel, which fits perfectly in my Orange Cover Theme, no?

The Fences Between Us by Kirby Larson. Larson wrote Hattie Big Sky, one of my all-time favorite books. This is part of the "Dear America" series, and it is set in pre-WWII Seattle. Should be great!

Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters by Natalie Standiford. I am SO EXCITED about this one. How to Say Goodbye in Robot was in my top five books for 2009.

From the library, I checked out a couple of things:



Bruiser by Neal Shusterman -- I loved Unwind and this one sounded pretty good.

Ivy & Bean (audio) -- this one's on one of Illinois's middle grade reading lists.

The Giver (audio) -- I want to revisit this classic

That's all! What did you see in your mail box this week?
