In My Mailbox (25)

April 29, 2012

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. It’s awesome. Every week, we all get a chance to tell everyone what new books we’ve gotten so that we can tell you guys and we can all drool and squee together! Huzzah for squees!

Lots of great stuff this week from all manner of places! Woot!


Book cover for Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Timepiece: Hourglass #2 by Myra McEntire (June 12, 2012 from EgmontUSA). MORE HOURGLASS, MORE KALEB. Yes please! 

Book cover for One Moment by Kristina McBride

One Moment by Kristina McBride (June 26, 2012 from EgmontUSA). So, FOOT on the cover–not my favorite thing. But! This book sounds intense, mysterious, and thought-provoking, what with a girl trying to recover the memories of what happened the night her boyfriend jumped off a cliff–where they were standing together–and died. Secrets are revealed, y’all!

(Thanks SO MUCH, EgmontUSA!)


The Dark Hills Divide: The Land of Elyon #1 by Patrick Carman. Middle grade fantasy about a girl who goes to investigate a mysterious forest outside the walls of the city where she lives. Sounds SUPER. 

Fairy Tale Detectives: The Sisters Grimm #1 by Michael BuckleyThis series has been on my radar for ages, guys, because it’s a middle grade series about descendants of the Grimm brothers who investigate crimes INSIDE fairy tales. Seriously. 

Time Enough for Drums by Ann RinaldiSo, I’ve mentioned before that I NERD over the American Revolution. Tara from Hobbitses heard this wonderful news and told me that I MUST read this book. American Revolution? CHECK. BONUS?! It’s set in Trenton, NJ. FANTASTIC.

The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria ForesterAnother one from the backlist, friends. Also middle grade. About a young girl who can…wait for it…FLY, who gets sent to a special school for other kids with special gifts. 

The Summer Before Boys by Nora Raleigh BaskinI actually already reviewed this one over at It’s a really sweet, thoughtful story about a young girl whose mom is serving overseas in Iraq. 

Divergent: Divergent #1 by Veronica RothThe more I thought about this book, the more I WANTED IT. Also, I was hoping to reread before INSURGENT comes out next week, but ALAS. I forgot how HUGE it was. 

The Summer Series by Jenny Han. This is seriously one of the BEST, ANGSTIEST contemporary YA series, guys. I LOVE these books, and one of the most fraught, dramatic triangles ever. And, you know, CONRAD. SIGH. 

Lots of AWESOME this week, guys! Hope your mailboxes are AWESOME, too!

      Remind me to take pictures of my copy tomorrow and show you the amount of rereads it has had. I still have all the kissing scenes dog-eared from like 4th grade,

    The library is seriously my favourite place in the world. Fairy Tale Detectives… that sounds absolutely awesome.

    TIME ENOUGH FOR DRUMS FUCK YEAHHHHH. ANNE RINALDI YEAHHHH! Also? Last I checked her book The Family Greene is like 57 cents on kindle just a heads up. They might have jacked the price but it was that cheap on Thursday!

    lol, yeah, SO not a fan of feet in general, let alone on book covers. But it does sound fantastic!

    Oh man, I see those Elyon & Sisters Grimm books ALL THE TIME at work and every single time I want to pick them up.

    ♥ yay for nerding out! (I took my fascinating for the Civil War one step further by getting myself a degree in military history 8D). I’m ridiculously obsessed with biographies of the Founding Fathers, but I can’t recall ever reading any YA books about the Revolution. Added it on GR! (ahahaha, and in the process discovered that book is as old as I am. AWESOME.)

    So much MG love in your mailbox this week!

    Here’s what I got!

    Bwahaha, so like last week April pointed out to me that my library and hers had the same fantasy stickers, and now I see yours and they’re the same as my childhood library’s! Oh I LIVED in that aisle.

    I’ve had my eye on The Dark Hills Divide, and I LOVE me some Ann Rinaldi, so I’m so excited to hear your thoughts on both. Also I first heard of the Sisters Grimm just last week and had a total Scooby Doo “Whaaaaaaa?” reaction. Seriously. How did I not know this existed before?!

    TIME ENOUGH FOR DRUMS IS SOOOO GOOD!!! I’m so excited to see what you think about it!

    I need to read that damn Summer series already. I look forward to your thoughts, as our taste is EXACTLY the same for all of the things.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your last picture. The Summer I Turned Pretty is pretty much the best YA trilogy EVER. And, of course, Conrad. Be still, my heart. ♥ And I JUST finished Divergent yesterday and am totally and completely in love.

Tell me what's up!
