In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (20)

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.

This week is the OMG-I'm-so-excited-I-literally-screamed-and-did-a-happy-dance-when-this-ARC-showed-up-in-my-mail-and-I-can't-believe-I-have-to-have-the-will-to-wait-until-I'm-done-grading-essays-before-I-read-it IMM edition...all because I got an ARC of:

Original & ARC Cover

WOLFSBANE (sequel to NIGHTSHADE) by Andrea Cremer
Thank you, thank you, thank you Philomel/Penguin Teen & Andrea!!!

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this book - especially since I really don't like the new cover design they've changed to, so I now have a copy with the original cover (I mean, really, the cover on the first book is what made me pick it up in the first place and led to it becoming my new book obsession). 
Newly Designed Cover

WOLFSBANE comes out July 26th, and if you haven't yet read NIGHTSHADE, you must go immediately and get yourself a copy to read!


  1. I'm not a big paranormal romance fan, so I've been unsure about getting a copy of NIGHTSHADE. But the author is awesome on Twitter and it's getting rave reviews, so I'm thinking I'll have to cave - I am a fan of the SHIVER series by Maggie Stiefvater, after all. =) Happy reading!

  2. I agree, the green on WOLFSBANE's original & ARC cover is just killer! And I've heard great things about Nightshade, too. Enjoy!

    Here's my IMM :)

  3. So beyond jealous that you got Wolfsbane. I may do the happy dance for you. If you get a chance, stop by my IMM
