In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (18)

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.

Blog Tour (Star Book Tours)

 THE ANTI-PROM by Abby McDonald
Sounds like a good girl-power book and timely

Bought (Couldn't resist one last trip to Borders or using a B&N gift card! And added a couple more to my dystopian list)

ENTWINED by Heather Dixon
Sounds like an interesting mythology-ish tale and has a gorgeous cover!

BABE IN BOYLAND by Jody Gehrman
Just sounds really cute

Needed to complete the Ruby Oliver series (although I miss the original covers!)

PATHFINDER by Orson Scott Card
Sounds like a good fantasy and boy book

STUCK IN NEUTRAL by Terry Trueman
Familiar title and a Printz Honor Book - short and sounds intense

TRASH by Andy Mulligan
Dystopian I've heard great things about

ROT & RUIN by Jonathan Mayberry
Zombie dystopian and total boy book

DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver
Had to get another copy because too many girls want to read it and I didn't have enough to go around - not a bad problem to have!


  1. All of these books look fantastic, especially Real Live Boyfriends and The Anti-Prom. I hope your students like them! I read Entwined, but was a bit disappointed. I'm interested to hear what you think!

  2. So many great books! Happy reading!

  3. Entwined looks stunning! I really need to get a copy of that! I also got a second copy of Delirium this week, but for different reasons, hehe

  4. You got some great books! I can't wait to read Entwined, the cover is so beautiful. Did you know it's based on the fairytale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses"? I didn't know until another blogger mentioned it, so I looked it up and read it. I hope the book is great!

    Feel free to check out what's in my mailbox this week.

  5. Ohhh, so many great books! I really want to read Entwined, Babe in Boyland and Delirium! Enjoy!!

  6. Awesome books and all on my to-read list! I've heard lots of great things about DELIRIUM, especially, and THE ANTI-PROM sounds sweet and funny. Not enough of those around! Actually, I can't even pick favorites, and if I tried to comment on why I want to read all of these books this would turn into a blog post in and of itself. =) Happy reading!

    My IMM:

  7. Stuck in Neutral is absolutely amazing, and it really is an intense read but well worth it!
