In My Mailbox (29)

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.

Won from Katie at One Page at a Time:
 
Elixir by Hilary Duff
The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
It's so funny that I won this book because I just bought it last week. No worries though. I'll keep one for my home bookshelf and one for my classroom library!

Library Loot:
 
All-American Girl by Meg Cabot
I downloaded this audiobook to my iPhone from my library's Overdrive page and it is a RIOT! The narrator has the perfect voice and is so expressive. This book is audiobook narrating done right.
 
Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It by Kelly Gallagher
I've had this book for one day but I've just decided I'm going to buy it because I've already used four post-it flags to mark important passages and I'm only on page 8! Clearly Kelly Gallagher is preaching a gospel I want to hear. If you teach reading in any capacity, I highly recommend this book! (which is a pretty bold statement only being on page 8!)

  1. Meg Cabot rocks. I love her Mediator and 1-800 series. Abandon was cool too. I keep meaning to read some reviews of Elixir, it sounds good anyway. :) Enjoy your reading!
