In My Mailbox (3)

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.

I had a fantastic week this week when it came to books. Every day was a nice surprise in the mail. As far as books from the library, I suppose I should make my "big" announcement: I've accepted a new job and will begin my new life as a Youth Services Librarian next week. I've been avoiding checking out books from my current library to avoid the big return at the end, so no check outs this week. You might see a wider spread of reviews in the coming months as I learn the ropes of working with a wider range of youth and better learn the books for younger readers (and of course, teens are still a big part of my new job!).

On to the loot. . .

How to Read the Air by Dinaw Mengestu: An adult contemporary fiction that sounds way different from my current reading but in a really good way. This one is from Riverhead and comes out in October.

Jane by April Lindner: A new take on Jane Eyre (which I read eons ago) that sounds right up my alley. This one is from Poppy and also comes out in October.

Dirty Secret by Jessie Sholl: This is a memoir of hoarder's daughter. Given how much I adored the fictional take on this issue with C. J. Omololu's Dirty Little Secrets, you can guess how I am interested in the real story here. This one's for a blog tour in January, but the book is out by Gallery in December.


by Suzanne Collins. I have the other two books in the UK edition and bought this one from the UK, as well.

That's all. I've got a few things up my sleeve in the coming weeks, so I've been reading like a maniac to get caught up.

What's in YOUR box this week?


  1. Dirty Secret sounds really good. The world of hoarders really interests me, as someone who used to be kind of messy and is now super-organized. I'm definitely going to look for that one.

  2. Dirty Secret looks really good. I love having a look into other people's lives.

  3. Jane is on my wishlist and Mockingjay I have loved! Have a fab time reading:)

  4. Jane looks great! Come check out my site at It's Time to Read
