In My Mailbox (57)

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Here is my final In My Mailbox for 2011

The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Wonderstruck by Brain Selznick
Bake Sale by Sara Varon

From the Library:
This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel (audiobook)

  1. I just finished reading the Hunger Games Trilogy during the week. Still at odds with how it ended, but I devoured all 3 books within 4 days

    Happy reading

  2. Yay for THG and If I Stay! I love both! Many to those I haven't heard of so I hope you enjoy them all! Happy New Year!

    My IMM:

  3. Love your loot! I couldn't help thinking that these are my kinds of books! I've read the Hunger Games trilogy several months back - definitely unputdownable. :) I'm also supposed to receive a review copy of Wonderstruck, so I've been waiting avidly for it - meanwhile I borrowed a copy from the library, simply because I can't wait to flip through the glorious pages. I'm sure you'd have a lovely time reading through it.

    I also love Liz Pichon. And Peter Brown's Children Make Terrible Pets looks soooo nice! :) Half Spoon of Rice definitely sounds like a heavy read. It's good that you have a few lighter ones to kind of balance the experience out. :)

    Here's my IMM over at GatheringBooks:

    Happy New Year, Beth!

  4. Great list!

    I absolutely adore The Hunger Games Trilogy. I recommended them to everyone, whether they asked or not.
