In My Mailbox (#7)

Some of you may have noticed I didn't get an IMM post out last week. I ended up being really busy and wasn't even at home to post. Therefore, there will be double the books, and double the fun for this week!




I had the opportunity to go to a joint author book signing to meet M.T. Anderson and Chris Van Allsburg. I love M.T. Anderson's books, especially my favorite Feed. I also got two of his other great YA novels signed, Thirsty and The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation: The Pox PartyAnd I was equally excited to meet Chris Van Allsburg who's written the extremely popular The Polar Express, and my personal favorite Two Bad Ants

I was also very luck to meet David Levithan, Jeff Hirsch, and 8 other YA authors at another book signing. I got Will Grayson, Will Grayson and The Eleventh Plague signed, both awesome books for those looking for recommendations. 

Last week I checked out copies of Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan, Unison Spark by Andy Marino, Human.4 by Mike A. Lancaster, Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King, And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky, and Pearl by Jo Knowles.

And this week I checked out Vesper by Jeff Sampson, Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake, This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel, Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien, and The Pledge by Kimberly Derting.

As you can see, I have a lot of reading ahead of me. Be sure to leave a comment with your IMM post, or just your thoughts on these reads. Happy Reading!
