In My Mailbox (3)

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 went to the Scholastic Warehouse Sale and. . .well, I got pretty excited. I did keep in mind some budgetary type concerns. . .which means I actually put about 8 books back on the shelves. Here are the 22 I ended up with, plus some more.

Let’s start with these three:

A Million Shades of Gray by Cynthia Kadohata

The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander

Gone by Michael Grant

A couple to continue series I already have:

Maximum Ride: Volume 2 by James Patterson

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (really, I didn’t own it!)

I think I call this pile my 7A books group (that’s my all-female class that loves romantic drama):

I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

 Some #nerdprintz books I’m excited to have:

The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

A nice dystopian stack:

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (I think this is the 3rd or 4th copy I’ve bought; it won’t stay put!)

The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner: The Maze RunnerThe Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure

 Finally, some fantasy/sci-fi:

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen

First two of the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare: City of BonesCity of Ashes

First two of the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan: The Lost Hero, The Son of Neptune

Finally, an ARC received from Mrs. Andersen:

Insignia by S.J. Kincaid

Not pictured, but purchased a copy and received an ARC from Jessica earlier in the week: Insurgent by Veronica Roth (both copies have been checked out all week long)

All the new books together, most of them soon to be friends on the bookshelves (not to mention some bookshelves in the background):
