In My Mailbox (3)


In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren where we show off all the books we got this week
Mine is more than a little late, so there's quite a bit! 

BOUGHT


I got Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne at last weekend's signing at Children's Book World. It looks lovely and has a linen cover--much better than those spongy-rubber covers that were all the rage last year. I can't wait to read it!





@MissJaneGov also got me Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman. I wish I could have been at that Vroman's signing--I hear they are a hilarious pair!

I grabbed two books from the library:

BORROWED

These were on YALSA's Best Fiction for Young Adults 2012 list: The Floating Islands by Rachel Neumeier and You Against Me by Jenny Downham.






I also snagged a couple of books from Jane's ALA Midwinter stash--luckily for me, she can't read all of them at once. I got The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell and Ruined by Simone Elkeles.







I also received a few middle-grade nonfiction books for review from Nomad Press, which I'm excited to add to the blog--in our new kids' nonfiction category :)

FOR REVIEW






I also got some great sewing books. I will definitely review them on Nite Lite. Speaking of Nite Lite, you should head over there and check out pics of our new RNSL swag on Thuy's IMM!
