And welcome to In My Mailbox, a weekly meme (hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren) in which bloggers share the contents of the mailboxes!
Okay, so I got a wonderful box from Scholastic and I got a really visually stunning National Geographic Kids title and if you look closely, you'll see two things there that aren't books. THEY ARE HOPE'S ANTI-COMET PILLS from Selling Hope by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb, which I loooved!!! And guess what??? Kristin's kicking off my NaNoWriMo author guest posts TOMORROW. So stay tuned. :)
And now for the books:
Quest for the Spark by Tom Sniegoski and Jeff Smith (Scholastic, February 2011). - The Bone graphic novel series is super popular at my library. I can't wait to share this one with the kids!
The Great Wall of Lucy Wu by Wendy Wan-Long Shang (Scholastic, January 2011). - Here's a 2011 debut!
Clarity by Kim Harrington (Scholastic, March 2011). - This one's already getting some buzz on the YA blogs. It's a 2011 debut about a teen psychic, looks good for fans of paranormal.
Sequins, Secrets, and Silver Linings by Sophia Bennett (Scholastic, January 2011). - I'm excited for this one because they highlighted it at the Scholastic Librarian Preview. This British import (published as Threads over there) is a 2011 US debut!
Cyborg by the McKissacks (Scholastic, February 2011). - POC science fiction! This is the second book of the Clone Codes.
Phantoms in the Snow by Kathleen Benner Duble (Scholastic, February 2011). - I reviewed Quest by Ms. Duble during my YA Cybils year. Here's a new historical fiction set during WWII (perennially popular time period).
Wishful Thinking by Alexandra Bullen (Scholastic, January 2011). - This is a sequel to last year's Wish, which I haven't read, but I might have to track it down!
The Book of Tormod: A Templar's Gifts by Kat Black (Scholastic, April 2011). - This is the second book in a trilogy, apparently. Looks like something that'll appeal to my many kids who love fantasy.
Trapped by Michael Northrop (Scholastic, February 2011). - GoodReads says "The Breakfast Club meets The Blizzard of the Century". Dude, sign me up.
Shantorian (Trackers #2) by Patrick Carman (Scholastic, January 2011).
Geek Fantasy Novel by E. Archer (Scholastic, April 2011). - Sounds hilarious!
Warp Speed by Lisa Yee (Scholastic, March 2011). - New Lisa Yee. 'Nuff said. (Yay!)
Saving Zasha by Randi Barrow (Scholastic, January 2011). - This is a children's 2011 debut, historical fiction set just after WWII.
Great Migrations by Elizabeth Carney (National Geographic Kids, October 2010). - The Great Migrations television event premiers on November 7 and this is a companion book to the mini-series. (I wonder if I get the National Geographic Channel... hmm...)
And that's what was in my mailbox this week! How about you?
