In My Mailbox (#1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. As you can see, my first week of the year brought me lots of books...but many of them are for school (honest!!). I went ahead and included my textbooks, because, let's face it - for the price of those suckers, I might as well!! So, there in the top row are my texts for Child Development, Family Development, and Library Materials for Children (in that order). The next 11 books are for my Literature for Young Adults class...and I have linked them to goodreads, so you can check out their summaries, if you so desire...

2. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (already read, and used to own the hardback, but my daughter lost it)
5. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou (already read - a long time ago)
6. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (already read - a long time ago)
7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
8. Crank by Ellen Hopkins (already read)
9. Gifts by Ursula LeGuin
10. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank (already read)
11. Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger (already read - a long time ago)

The next two, I bought "just because" at Barnes and Noble:
Switched by Amanda Hocking and By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead by Julie Anne Peters
Then, I got the following from Netgalley:

I am particularly excited about Fracture!

What books did you get this week?

Great IMM! I got approved for Fracture & Stolen Away as well from NetGalley this week! Ooohh! How is Crank by Ellen Hopkins? I've only read her adult novel but I've been wanting to read all her young adult novels. Enjoy all your books! :)

Hi Brittani! Crank is AWESOME - the whole trilogy is. I've read every single one of Ellen Hopkins' books, EXCEPT the adult novel. How was it? I keep meaning to put it on hold at the library. I'll have to go do that now!

Some time ago I heard about Ursula LeGuin and got "Left hand of darkness" but never got around reading it. Or found anyone who'd read her, in fact. Looking forward to your review on her.
Cheers! :D

For Christmas, I received Grand Days by Frank Moorhouse. I've only just started reading it but already I'm captured.
