In My Mailbox - New Books This Week (37)

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.

This week I bought quite a few books because of author signings/events I went to (Lisa McMann-who is so nice and fun & Anderson's YA Lit Conference). It's always good to support the bookstores bringing in these authors!

Of course I had to get the pretty finished copy of this one! It officially releases on Tuesday, but because the fabulous Michelle was at the conference, they had signed copies available. I can't wait to read this one again and see if I can spot the differences from the ARC, but mostly, I'm excited to go back into this world that I loved so much the first time around. You're aware of my obsession with it greatness, right? (If not, this might be the first time you're visiting my blog, so peek around a little bit:))

FADE (DreamCatcher #2) by Lisa McMann
I started reading the first book, WAKE, before I went to her event and got hooked (and kind of adore Cabel) and had to read through the rest of the series in a couple of days!

GONE (DreamCatcher #3) by Lisa McMann

CRYER'S CROSS by Lisa McMann 
I've heard a lot of positives about this one, and now that I know a bit of the story behind it, I'm even more intrigued to read it.

Her middle grades dystopian/fantasy (I'm partway into it and it's fabulous!). Actually bought one for myself/classroom and one for my nephew!

SECRET SATURDAYS by Torrey Maldonado
This one sounded like a really good middle school appropriate book.

ONLY ONE YOU byLinda Kranz
Really sweet picture book I've read before and saw on the shelf, so wanted a copy to share with my students.


CLAIRE DE LUNE by Christine Johnson
I actually won one of the door prizes at the conference and this was the book in my bag. I've heard it's a good werewolf story, so I'm excited to have it to read.


  1. Looks like you picked up some good ones this week. Enjoy your reading!

  3. I enjoyed Cryer's Cross. It was short, but very creative, and I enjoyed the portrayal of a protagonist with moderate-to-severe OCD. I could really relate to that! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  4. I've heard such good things about Cryer's Cross and Mara. Happy Reading!

  5. I want The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer so much! I recently read Wake too, although it's been on my kindle for over a year, and bought Fade to read during October's 24 hour Readathon. I'm curious about Cryer's Cross too, so I look forward to your review!

  6. Aaaah so jealous!! Mara Dyer!! I can't wait to get my hands on that one. Hope you like it.
