In My Mailbox #4

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where we get to show off all those lovely books we get each week - whether it's from the library, the store, on our e-readers, or literally in our mailboxes.
I have quite a few to show you this week...first, the books from my trip to the library today. I had ordered several books that I needed for my Library Materials for Children class (I have to read books from certain genres, and that have one particular awards), so I checked out more than I normally would.

1. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech (poetry requirement for class)
2. A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead (Caldecott requirement)
4. Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson (Scott O'Dell requirement)
5. The Memory Bank by Carolyn Coman (modern fantasy requirement)
6. Clementine by Sara Pennypacker (Sequoyah requirement)
7. Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr
8. Unwind by Neal Schusterman
9. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
10. Triangles by Ellen Hopkins
11. Hooked by Catherine Greenman
12. Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder

Here is what I got for my Kindle this week - ALL for free! (Click on covers to check them out on goodreads):

The following are books that I received from Netgalley for review:

And finally, these are the books I received directly from the authors for review:

Lots of books to add to my towering TBR pile! What did you get this week?

I loved unwind. i recommended it to all my friends. And that giada cookbook looks delish. Enjoy!

Melissa said...

I just did my very first IMM post (

Your list is awesome! Be careful when you read Unwind -- you'll need to have a complete afternoon free. It's the kind of story that grabs hold and won't let go until you're finished. And even after that, I thought about it for a couple days after... Enjoy!

Susanne said...

Awesome books! Unwind has been sitting on my shelf for a while, but I'm hoping to read it soon. And I love Giada's recipes! Following you back!

Heidi said...

I LOVE A Sick Day for Amos McGee! Also I haven't read Unwind yet, but am getting excited to since a sequel is finally coming out. Nice Kindle Freebies haul!

I'm interested to hear what you have to say about My Name is Olivia, I saw it on NetGalley but decided I already had too many galleys to get through first.

Krista said...

Your kindle books look very interesting, that's awesome that they were free! Great mailbox! Thanks for the follow :)
