In My Mailbox #25

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren! Here's what was in my mailbox this week...

Egads, the books just kept coming this week! (Which is awesome.) Since the post got kind of long, I'm just going to link to GoodReads (as per usual), where you can read a summary of each book.



Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles (Bloomsbury, April 2010). And yes, I won this in a contest over at Stacked, so I'll be giving this away... stay tuned!

The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez (Knopf Books for Young Readers, May 2010). Very excited about this one - not only is this a 2010 debut author, but I've already started reading it and it's very good!

The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood (Blazer & Bray [HarperCollins], March 2010). I read the first few pages and it seems very Lemony Snicket-ish (in a good way), so I'm excited to read it.

The Suburb Beyond the Stars by MT Anderson (Scholastic Press, June 2010). This is a sequel to The Game of Sunken Places.

The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer (Scholastic Press, May 2010).


Wolven by Di Toft (Chicken House, June 2010). This is a debut author, published in 2010 in the US!

Wish I Might: From the Life of Willa Havisham (Scholastic Press, May 2010). 

The Keepers' Tattoo by Gill Arbuthnott (Chicken House, May 2010). This is a 2010 debut!

Runaway by Meg Cabot (Point, May 2010).

Great mailbox week! Did you get anything awesome in your mailbox?

Great mix of books, Abby. I got my copy of "incorigible" this week and also am anxious to read it. The cover reminds me of Mary Poppins.

Rules of Attraction and The Keepers' Tattoo! You're lucky :D

Lauren said...

Awesome books! The Keepers' Tattoo looks really good, so I'm curious to see what you think of it. Happy reading!

Nice books this week! I am looking forward to hearing what you think about Wolven. I love the cover. I'm looking forward to Runaway too. I have read the first two and want to know what happens next.

Here are my mailboxes this week: Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media.

Happy reading!

Wow, you got a bunch of great books! I've heard great things about Rules of Attraction, and I can't wait to read Runaway (I love Meg Cabot's writing). Happy reading

Great book! The Incorrigible Children looks adorable. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

Looks like you have a great mix of books. I just finished Perfect Chemistry, so I'm looking forward to Rules of Attraction. And your right "Inorrigible Children" does seem to be Lemony Snicketish. Have a great reading week.

Christina T said...

I haven't heard of some of these like The Keeper's Tattoo but they all look interesting. I am participating in the Debut Author Challenge so maybe I'll read some of these for that. Rules of Attraction is on my TBR list-I still have to read Perfect Chemistry. I hope you enjoy your books.
