In My Mailbox (28)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.  The books you share do not have to be ones you actually received in the mail.  They can be ones you bought at the book store, checked out at the library, or downloaded to your e-reader.  The idea is just to share what's on your TBR pile for the upcoming week.

For review from Harper Children's Audio:

The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson

Thanks to Berkley Publishing Group for sending me a finished copy of

A Pug's Tale by Alison Pace
I will be posting my review of this book very soon as well as an interview with Alison. This book was even better than Pug Hill!

You Remind Me of You by Eireann Corrigan

Free e-book:

Songs for a Teenage Nomad by Kim Culbertson
 You can get this book free on your Nook or Kindle right now!

Library Loot:
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing Traitor to the Nation Volume I: The Pox Party by M.T. Anderson
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Can you believe I haven't read this book yet? There are so many modern retellings out there that I figured I need to read the original to really appreciate the retellings. My goal is to get schooled in more classic literature this summer.

Picture books:
Stop Snoring Bernard! by Zachariah O'hora
Moi and Marie Antoinette by Lynn Cullen, illustrated by Amy young

Huck Runs Amuck! by Sean Taylor, illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds
Little Chicken's Big Day by Katie and Jerry Davis

The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson
The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
OMG! the illustrations in this book are GORGEOUS!!!! This was an impulse buy that's for sure! I was seduced by the loveliness between the covers!

You Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me The Secrets of Happiness by Julie Klam
I bought this book because the adorably awkward Boston Terrier on the cover reminds me so much of my pug Guenter:


  1. wow. you have some interesting books. hope you enjoy it. Here is my IMM:

  2. I just finished Instructions for a Broken Heart -it was super cute so I hope you like it. Enjoy all your other books. and Guenter is absolutely ADORABLE! :)

  3. The dog pictures distracted me from the books! Too cute! Good IMM though! I've really been meaning to read the Octavian Nothing books for quite a while now.

    Here’s my IMM!

  4. I totally wanted to buy The Last Little Blue Envelope this week but I'd already had a few hardcovers I was getting so I'll have to wait a bit longer to buy it... Enjoy all your wonderful books this week!! :)

  5. Those are some great books! I've been wanting to read 13 Little Blue Envelopes for a while now, but haven't had a chance yet. I look forward to hearing some reviews!

  6. Great collection of books! The Last Little Blue Envelope sounds great, and I love audio books. Enjoy reading!
