In My Mailbox (13)


Welcome to the 13th edition of In My Mailbox here at Stacked. It's a weekly showcase of books received during the week either through the mail, purchased or picked up at the library, and it's hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.



For Review:



Sparrow Road by Sheila O'Connor: A middle grade novel about life at an artist's colony being compared to Ann M. Martin and Sharon Creech.
The Trouble with Half a Moon by Danette Vigilante: You know what excites me about this? There is an awesome person of color on the cover. A younger-aimed YA title about loss and life in a housing project.


Then, for Cybils reviewing, I got a ton of stuff this week:



The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy
The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride
The 10 p.m. Question by Kate DeGoldi




Butterfly by Sonya Hartnett
Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs by Ron Koertge: I read this one already and loved it. My review will be up this week!
The Agency, Book 1 by Y. S. Lee



The Agency, Book 2 by Y. S. Lee
Beat the Band by Don Calame
The Secret to Lying by Todd Mitchell




Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald
City of Cannibals by Ricki Thompson
Sweet 15 by Emily Adler and Alex Echivarria
Mindblind by Jennifer Roy

Since I was out of town all week at a conference for work, I didn't check out any books, and the only book I bought was a preorder, which I'll be reviewing and talking about like crazy in about a month. Stay tuned on that one.

What was in your mailbox this week?

  9. Awesome! I admittedly haven't heard of any of these books at all (I'm a bit ashamed to admit that, haha), so my TBR just grew significantly! xD

  11. AWESOME books. I love Sonya Hartnett, so I'd love to hear your thoughts on that. But there are a lot here that I haven't heard of, but have absolutely fallen in love with based on the covers alone. Sparrow Road is my favourite followed up by Shakespeare Meets the Playoffs. So beautiful!

    I'm a new follower. Here's what's IMM this week.
