In My Mailbox #23

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren! Head on over there to see what goodies bloggers received in their mailboxes this week.

This week I got a copy of Rules of Attraction (Bloomsbury Teen, April 2010) by Simone Elkeles that I won in a contest at Stacked. Thanks, Kelly! Rules of Attraction is a sequel to Perfect Chemistry, which I really liked, so I've been looking forward to this one! Here's the summary from Good Reads:

When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado. Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.

And I got a copy of The Wonder Book by Amy Rosenthal (HarperCollins, March 2010). After a quick glance through it, it looks like it'll please Shel Silverstein fans (of which there are many at my library).

And that was my mailbox this week! Did you get anything interesting in your mailbox this week?
