In My Mailbox (35)

8 Jul

July 8, 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!

Small mailbox again, guys, but I’m REALLY excited for these books. HOLLA!


Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt (October 2, 2012 from Walker Children’s). Cancer book, guys. I’m drawn to these like a moth to a flame. Plus, it’s a debut! A debut about a young girl who keeps her cancer a secret from everyone except her bff, who I think is a guy. I’m in.

The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors (August 21, 2012 from Walker & Co). This is a fantasy about a girl who can turn milk into CHOCOLATE, which is super rare in this world, which makes her a big ol’ target for bad guys. But chocolate, guys. I mean….


Book cover for Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson. Guys, I have been looking forward to this Peter Pan retelling via Tiger Lily, the Indian princess, for AGES. I’ve been hearing that it’s awesome but kind of dark, but I am STILL dying to read it. I love the Peter Pan story, and I’m so excited to read it from a different perspective.

That’s it for me this week, guys! Small but still AWESOME, right?! Hope you guys got some super stuff this week, too!

    Who cares about small mailboxes when yours is as great as it is?? Some of my fave bloggers have raved about Tiger Lily, and ZOMG. I have not heard of The Sweetest Spell, but you’re right — chocolate FTW. Hope you enjoy all of these! 😀

    Here’s my IMM 🙂

    Tiger Lily is a fabulous read so I hope you like it too! It is bittersweet but good. The Sweetest Spell sounds a lot like Rumpelstiltskin 🙂

    The Sweetest Spell sounds like a dangerous book — gotta make sure there’s no chocolate in the house! I’m sure I’d get a craving to eat it all!

    Tiger Lily looks really good, too! I had no idea it was based on Peter Pan!?!

    Enjoy all your reads!

    I’m the opposite. I can’t cope with cancer books. I want to read Fault in Our Stars so freaking badly, and I’m scared! Looking forward to your reviews.

    I’m SO excited for The Sweetest Spell. It’s a freaking UGLY DUCKING retelling, but with CHOCOLATE. SO AWESOME!!! And delicious. Also I’ve heard Send Me a Sign is wonderful, but I’ve already filled my quota of cancer books for the year thank you very much.

    I’ve been hearing a lot of Tiger Lily. Looking forward to hearing what you think of it.

    Aughhh! Tiger Lily!!!! You’re actually the person who pointed this out to me (you know, on your blog, which I sometimes pretend is written to me, jk 😉 ) and since then I’ve been crazy excited about it. I really MUST get my hands on a copy! Hope you enjoy your sweet book haul!
