In My Mailbox: Week 81

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

For Review:

The Absolute Value of -1 by Steve Brezenoff + Bookmarks (I received this as part of a Teen Book Scene blog tour I'm participating in, so be sure to check back in September for a review/interview/contest!)
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (Did you know this hit #1 on the NYT Children's list for chapter books this week? How cool is that? Anyhow, it looks great and I've heard nothing but fantastic things about it, so I'm looking forward to reading it.)
Annexed by Sharon Dogar (I'm really looking forward to reading this one as well, though I'm not really looking forward to the inevitable sad ending that I know is going to be there.)

I also got a bunch of Children's books from Abrams this week as a surprise. As you probably know, I don't really review children's picture books here, though maybe I'll do little mini-review post for them? Hmm. I'll have to think about it. Would you mind see a huge mini-review post for all five of them sometime in September? Let me know in the comments! I would love to hear your thoughts.

 Dotty by Erica S. Perl
The Exceptionally, Extraordinarily Ordinary First Day of School by Albert Lorenz
Library Mouse: A World to Explore by Daniel Kirk
Miss Tutu's Star by Leslea Newman
All the Seasons of the Year by Deborah Lee Rose

In all, great week book-wise (thought not heat-wise here on the east coast)! Though enough about me, what did you get? Anything really awesome? Let me know. :)


  1. I got Linger this week too, although not the gorgeous US hardback. And I'm really interested to read Annexed - the controversy definitely has me intrigued. Hope you enjoy.

  2. You have Linger! Ah, I really want it too.

  3. Linger IS amazing! I bought a finished copy this week! It's so pretty! Enjoy!!

  4. Cool, you already have Linger! Linger still isn't in stores here in my country now...so, yeah, I'm still waiting...

    Have a good week ahead of you! Happy reading!


  5. I got the kids books as well. They are very cute.. =) Please check out my mailbox.

  6. I want to read Linger and Shiver... I really should have picked them up in Waterstones this week when I saw them!

    Happy reading! :)

  7. Yeah! I got Linger, too! Hope you enjoy all your new books!
