In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (19)

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.


WHERE SHE WENT by Gayle Forman
I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this sequel to IF I STAY (one of my all time favorite YA books) from Thanks!


CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS by Cassandra Clare
The newest in The Mortal Instruments series that started with CITY OF BONES, CITY OF ASHES, and CITY OF GLASS. I'm very excited that this trilogy is going to be made into a six book series so we get to live in the world of the Shadowhunters for even longer. Plus, there is a movie in the works for the first book. Lots of excitement!

BRAIN JACK by Brian Falkner
Last week it was on my library checkout list, but it was such a good techno-thriller dystopian (and perfect for my students), that I had to buy my own copy to have available in my classroom. You can read my review here.


  1. I was just checking out your blog and thought I would say hello. I found you on the Story Siren. I am a teacher as well (high school theater and dance) and love YA fiction. I have just purchased Cassandra Clare's new release (City of Fallen Angels) and can't wait to delve into it.

  2. I got CoFA as well! Lots of people did, it's an awesome book :D I got If I Stay too, because so many people have said awesome things about it, so I thought I'd give it a try :D Happy reading!


  3. Honestly, I think about 99% of the blogging community got CoFA, which isn't a bad thing at all! :)) Enjoy all your books!

    I'm a new follower, can't wait to read more from you. :)

  4. Where's my COFA? Why does everybody else have COFA? Ahh! Darn you, Amazon!

    Happy Reading!
