In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (12)

In My Mailbox is a shared posting idea started by Kristi at The Story Siren (read all about it here: In My Mailbox) for bloggers to share the books they've received and will be blogging about and reviewing soon.  IMM is a semi-regular feature here on Teach 8 YA Book Blog to let my students know the books to be looking for on the classroom shelves and for blog readers to know what book reviews to anticipate along with building excitement about new titles coming out. All titles link to goodreads so you can add books to your "to-read" list. What books are you excited about this week?


TRAPPED by Michael Northrop
Signed hardcover from winning The Contemps Challenge

For Review

THE FOURTH STALL by Chris Rylander
This is one I was planning to read for The Story Siren's Debut Author Challenge 2011. The Sopranos meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Sounds like a great book for boys so I'm super-excited to read it and share it with my students to see what they think.
Thank you so much Walden Pond Press (an imprint of HarperCollins)!!!


DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver
Loved her first book, BEFORE I FALL, and I've heard great things about this new dystopian series from her.

THE LATTE REBELLION by Sarah Jamila Stevenson
Super excited about this new Flux book - sounds really pertinent to today's teens!

OTHER WORDS FOR LOVE by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
Another one I've heard really good reviews for that I'm looking forward to reading.
