In My Mailbox #1

Welcome to my first ever In My Mailbox post! Yay! IMM is a fabulous meme begun and hosted by The Story Siren at her wonderful blog in which bloggers post about the books they have received that week via mail/library/book-store. For more info, go here.  My post this week will be larger than usual because I am starting grad school classes on Monday and so several more books for my Children's Resources class came in :) 

So here's what I got this week: 


So I bought and received in the mail the following:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Home by Jeannie Baker
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key by Jack Gantos
The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron

The Hunger Games trilogy was a long desired personal buy and receiving Mockingjay Friday afternoon was one of the highlights of my summer! The review will be up soon but I'll give you a clue now: I really, really liked it :) The other four books are for grad school but I hope to review some of them as well as the other 'school' books I read over the coming months. 

From the library, I got:
No and Me by Delphine de Vigan
Devilish by Maureen Johnson

I'll be reading and reviewing both of those books this week, baring natural disaster or academic overload :)
