In My Mailbox (58)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren designed to showcase all the books you got during the week, be it in the mail, from the bookstore, or at the library.

I decided to do another vlog this week. I don't know how long I'll keep at this vlog thing, but it's fun for the time being.

One thing I forgot to mention in the video was that I did not show all the picture books I got this week. I picked up so many picture books at the library this week that I would probably have to make a 20-minute video to show you all of them. So I just showed you my favorite ones.

Books mentioned:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
The Year of the Dog by Grace Lin
Dogs Don't Do Ballet by Anna Kemp, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie
The Boy Who Wanted to Cook by Gloria Whelan, illustrated by Steve Adams
Never Take a Shark to the Dentist by Judi Barrett, illustrated by John Nickle
You Will Be My Friend by Peter Brown
Marcel the Shell with Shoes On: Things About Me by Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp
(If you're like me and have never heard of Marcel the Shell, check out this adorable YouTube video)

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. I'm totally loving Marcel the Shell! I had never heard of it before either (I teach college, so I guess I wouldn't have?), but that video is too cute! I'm glad no one is home... I literally giggled aloud.

  2. I'm about to start Shatter Me! I hope it's as good as I've heard. I haven't heard of the others so I'll check them out for sure. They look really good. Thanks for sharing your mailbox for this and I hope you enjoy all of them <3 :]
