In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (4)

In My Mailbox is a shared posting concept/listing from The Story Siren for YA book bloggers to share titles that have been arriving and will be showing up in reviews soon (read about what it is and how it got started here: In My Mailbox).  This will be a semi-regular feature on Teach 8 YA Book Blog. 

Some great books were released this week and we had the Scholastic Book Fair at school, so there are lots of books coming into my classroom library this week!

Books I Bought:
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
Sequel to The Maze Runner - Signed after getting to meet and talk with the author!

The Heroes of Olympus: THE LOST HERO by Rick Riordan
Continuation of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians world. I had to get two copies so I could read one and start allowing students to read one. I won't be able to keep this on my shelves!

BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Sequel to Beautiful Creatures I can't wait to read!

I AM NUMBER FOUR (Lorien Legacies) by Pittacus Lore
I've been hearing good things about this one and am always looking for good books for boys, plus it's going to be a movie.

CHANGE UP: Mystery at the World Series by John Feinstein
His sports mysteries are fun and I didn't have this one yet.

IF I STAY by Gayle Forman
Got a paperback to have a second copy of one of my favorite books.

From the Scholastic Book Fair:
A DOG'S PURPOSE: A Novel For Humans by W. Bruce Cameron

DEAD IS JUST A RUMOR by Marlene Perez

TRANCE by Linda Gerber

FRAMED by Gordon Korman

TEARS OF A TIGER by Sharon Draper


NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL by Justina Chen Headley
This is another one I was excited to see at the Book Fair because I've heard that it's a really powerful book.

Books I Won:
MY LITTLE PHONY (The Clique #13) by Lisi Harrison
Thanks YA Books Central!


  1. All of the books in your pile should be good books! I especially would like to read Scorch Trials! Enjoy:-)

  2. I got Beautiful Darkness too! I'm really looking forward to reading it too. I've seen a lot of people that picked up The Lost Hero. I didn't realize it was a Percy Jackson book until I got to you - that makes sense why everyone got it. I'm on the wait list for I Am Number Four. Great week. Megan @ Read It, See It
