In My Mailbox (1)

Posted: February 26, 2012 in In My Mailbox, Memes

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s a way for people to share what books they have received that week (or recently). I figured I’d join in eventually, so why not now?

Christopher Paul Curtis is coming to my local bookstore on Tuesday, so I had to go pick up his latest so I could read it (and then get it signed!).

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis

While there, I found three others I’ve been meaning to pick up for a while:

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann

Before any of this, though, I stopped by the science lab in our school to talk with the science teacher, Sister Rebecca. She LOVES to read and has a decent classroom library in the lab (how cool is that?!). I helped myself to a few of her books that I’ve been wanting to read:

Rules by Cynthia Lord

Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko

The whole gang together:

We had a snow day Friday, so I’ve been getting some good reading in this weekend. Enjoy the week, everyone!

  3. Great books! I’ve read and loved Beauty Queens (the audio is up for two audies!), The Unwanteds, Al Capone Does my Shirts and Rules. I think The Scorpio Races might be my next audiobook. I’ve heard great things about that one too :)

    So excited for the CPC event on Tuesday! :D

    Beauty Queens is an awesome book! It’s even better on audio though. Libba Bray is a hoot as the narrator.

      I’m pretty nervous. I mean: CHRISTOPHER. PAUL. CURTIS.

      I’ve heard great things about Beauty Queens on audio. I think it’s up for awards somewhere, though I can’t remember what or where.
