In My Mailbox (IMM) is a weekly meme created by Kristi over atThe Story Siren. IMM is a chance for a blogger to show which books/e-books have been recently acquired either as ARCs, purchased, or borrowed. Click here to find out more.One of these days I will get around to doing a IMM vlog. However, it is after 6pm and I still have school work to finish up, so that will have to wait for another time. My classes end this coming week, so I will have more time to work on the blog. Trust me, I cannot wait! Most of the reading I have been doing has consisted of Catalog It! A Guide to Cataloging School Library Materials and Action Research: A Guide for Library Media Specialists. Doesn't that sound exciting?? I'll spare you the details. Anyway, just wanted to share the fun books I've bought/won over the past two weeks.
I am really excited about Where Things Come Back (just finished it; review will be up soon) because on Tuesday Corey Whaley will be at Hooray for Books in Alexandria, VA. This will be my first YA author meeting and I cannot wait because his book is absolutely fantastic! Go buy it now!
As we all are aware, Borders is going out of business (sad face). I decided to stop by to check out the sales. YA books were ten percent off. As I frantically grabbed books off the shelves, I began to think, ten percent isn't that much and maybe buying more than five books wasn't that practical. In the end I settled on Shine and The DUFF because I have heard such great things about both of these books. Later that day I happened to stop by Target to pick up a few things. As I scanned the book section (I was surprised at the lack of YA selection), I stumbled upon Dewey. Being a library student, the Dewey Decimal System is stuck in my head. I just had to pick this one up.
Some awesome bookish swag
Several weeks go, I won an ARC of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer from Katie over at Katie's Book Blog. I'm pretty sure I jumped up and down when she sent me the email that I had won a copy. This is a book I've been waiting to read. Katie also sent her card as well as a really cute bookmark. Thanks so much Katie! You are awesome!
