"In My Mailbox" is a weekly post hosted by the very lovely Kristi at The Story Siren about what new books we got in the mail (or library or whatever) this week.
Divergent by Veronica Roth from Jessica because I wanted it for my permanent collection! Totally worth a reread.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins from my friend Sash as an insane surprise.
AND SHE GOT IT SIGNED! Omg, Sash rocks my socks. I love this book.
From the library:
Books 1-3 of the Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce. You guys. These covers are outrageous. They're from the '80s, I think, and I would NEVER have checked these books out because of PURE EMBARRASSMENT, only so many people told me to read them that I had to.
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody
Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern
Everybody See the Ants by A.S. King
Library tip: Scope out the books waiting to be reshelved -- that's where I found the two new releases above!
Such a good book week! Hope you had a good one too.
Five books I loved -- A Beautiful Dark, Cold Kiss, Eve, Fateful and Supernaturally. Five amazing authors -- Jocelyn Davies, Amy Garvey, Anna Carey, Claudia Gray and Kiersten White.
Four of these authors (all but Anna Carey) will be at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville TODAY (Sunday, Oct. 16) with the HarperTeen Dark Days Tour! I'll be running the livestream, which you'll be able to access today at 2 p.m. by clicking here if you want to tune in and ask some questions.
Stay tuned for a recap later this week!
Plus, I forgot to tell y'all about my super fabulous lunch with Tahereh Mafi, author of Shatter Me, which just rocked my socks off. Check out a pic from our fun lunch:
