In My Mailbox (7)

Welcome to In My Mailbox, the weekly meme hosted by the delightful Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a weekly look at what I got in books this week.





For Review:



Hope in Patience by Beth Fehlbaum (Westside Books, October 27, 2010): This one's already been given nods by ALA for consideration of their quick picks list. I'm excited!

Pull by B. A. Binns (Westside Books, October 27, 2010): A gritty story set in the inner city. I think this sounds a bit like a Walter Dean Myers title, which isn't a bad thing at all!

Drought by Pam Bachorz (Egmont, January 2011): I loved Candor and am stoked for this one.


Library Picks:



Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper on audio: The Wisconsin Library Association holds a book discussion each year, and this is one of the two choices (the other is Neal Schusterman's Bruiser). I wanted to get both of them.

Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan on audio: This was my listen on the car ride to the Anderson's YA Conference on Saturday. She was a featured speaker.

Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteygart: An adult fiction that looks right up my alley right now. Despite the title, it's supposed to be humorous.

Cozy Crochet by Melissa Leapman: I'm really getting into this new hobby, which you'll know more about in a second. This book looked like it had some really good crafts in it.



Purchased:



Crochet, a Klutz book: Alea suggested this one as a great starter book with a lot of good patterns. It also came with a little yarn and some crochet accessories.

Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli: Another Alea suggestion. This looks a little easier than the crobots book, and it comes with an owl pattern. I am so excited about this one (and despite being a beginner, I can do a lot of the knots and stylings required here).

  1. VERY envious of Drought. Candor was a favorite of the year when I read it. I'm excited to see how her second book is.

  2. Oooh, Drought!! :D
    Also: Did you know that Barbara Binns was at the Anderson's con? She sat next to me in one of the sessions and introduced herself when she heard I have a blog! She's super nice. Very interested to know what you think of that one! :D

  6. I'm excited to have gotten Drought a few weeks back as well. I enjoyed Candor so I'm hoping I'll like this one as well.
