In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (16)

In My Mailbox is a shared posting idea run by Kristi at The Story Siren (read all about it here: In My Mailbox) for bloggers to share the books they've gotten that week to help publicize as many titles as possible. 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.

I bought a bunch of books I'd been hearing good things about with discounts or gift certificates I had this week. Yay!

THE LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa & Laura Roecker
This one sounds like so much fun with a "sasstastic" main character! Can't wait to read it!

This is one that I've heard a lot of good things about.

WHERE I BELONG by Gwendolyn Heasley
One of my want-to-reads for Debut Author Challenge 2011

WHEN THE STARS GO BLUE by Caridad Ferrer
Have lots of dancer students, so they'll probably like this one.

POP by Gordon Korman
Love his books for boys.

CRESCENDO (sequel to Hush, Hush) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Had several students looking for this one after reading the first.


  1. You got some awesome books this week! When the Stars Go Blue is one I'm really looking forward to reading.

  2. Where I Belong sounds really good! Great books! Enjoy!

  3. I haven't read any of these books other than Crescendo. I am very interested in Liar Society and Where I Belong. Both look very good....I hope your students enjoy them!

  4. I loved Hush, hush & Crescendo - nice pick there :). Becca Fitzpatrick is really good at keeping up the suspense. And I've also heard such great things about the Liar Society! Looks like you're going to have a great week :). Happy reading!

  5. I'm currently reading Where I Belong and I'm trying so hard not to hate the female protagonist that much, but I'm liking it so far. Happy reading!
