In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (31)

In My Mailbox is a 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. It's a little preview on what book reviews to anticipate along with a way to build excitement about new titles coming out. All titles link to goodreads so you can add books to your "to-read" list.

For Review:

HADES by Alexandra Adornetto
ARC - book releases August 30th - Sequel to HALO (which I haven't read yet but have wanted to)
Thanks to Feiwel and Friends (a Macmillian Children's imprint)!

Thanks to Walden Pond Press for these awesome lower middle-grades books!

ARC - Book releases on September 27th  
I've been hearing lots of positive praise for this one from well-respected educators, so I'm excited to read it!

THE BILLIONAIRE'S CURSE (The Archer Legacy: Book One) by Richard Newsome
Sounds like a fun middle grades mystery series.

THE EMERALD CASKET (The Archer Legacy: Book Two) by Richard Newsome

ARC - Book releases on September 20th.
This series are great compilations of ten short stories told in various formats from favorite young reader authors.

If you haven't heard of Walden Pond Press yet, they're an awesome new source for middle grades books - you should check them out! "Walden Pond Press is a collaboration between HarperCollins and Walden Media, the studio responsible for such films as THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA, CHARLOTTE’S WEB, and HOLES. We are publishing the next generation of middle-grade classics—fast-paced, funny, engaging, compulsively readable stories, by well-established authors and new, exciting talent." (Description from:

  7. You got a nice list of books this week in your mailbox. I really want to read Halo. I have been waiting months to get it from the library. I don't think I will get it before Hades comes out though.
    I hope you like your new books,

  8. I love the Guys Read series! The stories are great and it's such a noble thing for Jon Scieszka to do.

  9. I love Walden Pond Press! I've already had the chance to read Breadcrumbs it's like a warm chocolate chip cookie and a glass of milk! I loved it! I've got Thriller also to read and review. I had the Funny Business one and loved it! They are a great resource for MG books!
