In My Mailbox (May 1, 2011)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

This week I received two books for review through the Amazon Vine program.

Troubletwisters by Garth Nix and Sean Williams is a middle grade fantasy about twins who must save the world. It is the start of a new series and the hardcover comes out today from Scholastic.

In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane came out in March from Harlequin Teen. It has gotten great comments from Sophie Jordan and P. C. Cast and I am eager to read it. 

I am trying to keep from getting too many books because my TBR stack is almost to the ceiling. I need to read what I have before I buy any more books.

What did you add to you TBR stack this week?


  1. In the arms of Stone angels looks really good. I hope you enjoy the great books ^-^

  2. I know what you mean about the TBR pile. I'm trying to get mine down too.

  4. I am not familiar with either of these books, but the MG one sounds really good. I should look into getting it for my classroom. I hope you enjoy both of them!

  5. Haven't heard of the Garth Nix book. Sounds like middle school kids might really like this one. I'll look forward to your thoughts.

  6. In the Arms of Stone Angels looks interesting. It is hard to keep from adding to the TBR pile, isn't it? I received two books from Amazon Vine this past week too (Abandon by Meg Cabot, which I didn't care for, and The Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz)and just requested two more.

    I hope you enjoy both of your new books and get caught up on your review pile. :)

  7. In the Arms of Stone Angels is on my to-read list as well. I'm anxiously awaiting it's release. :-)

  8. In the Arms of Stone Angles's cover is to die for,
    Let me know what you think?
