In My Mailbox (42)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. 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.

Purchased:
 
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
I listened to the audiobook of this a few months ago and fell HARD for it. I just knew I'd eventually buy a hard copy of it. I couldn't wait anymore. I wanted to make sure I got a hardcover because I really dislike the new paperback cover. 

Bought my library's used book store:
 
The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place by E.L. Konigsburg
Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
National Velvet by Enid Bangold
Smiles to Go by Jerry Spinelli
Strange Happenings by Avi
The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan
Uncle Boris in the Yukon and Other Shaggy Dog Stories by Daniel Pinkwater

Library Loot:

Picture books:
  
Should I Share My Ice Cream by Mo Willems
Scapegoat: The Story of a Goat Named Oat and a Chewed Up Coat by Dean Hale, illustrated by Michael Slack

Poetry:
 
I Am the Book poems selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins, illustrated by Yayo

Cookbook:

Audiobooks:

And I know this isn't a book, but I had to share how awesome my library is for carrying this:

Hey Dude Season 1
This was my favorite Nickelodeon show when I was a wee tween and OMG did watching this bring back memories.
