In My Mailbox (3)

Okay, I got one book actually in the mail this week.
Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson

I also picked up and ARC at work for Shannon Hale's new book The Actor and the Housewife It comes out in June. It's adult fiction rather than children's or teen, but it looks pretty interesting. I shall add it to the ever-growing pile.

I bought quite a few, of course. I really should stop, but I probably won't. I'll just post pictures this week, because I've avoided my homework quite long enough.

Prom Dates from Hell by Rosemary Clement-Moore

I haven't read this series before, but I've always been intrigued by the covers and I know there's a new one on the way, so I decided to pick it up. Have any of you read these?

The Chronicles of Vladmir Tod: Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer

Another series I've been meaning to time like the present.

Fade by Lisa McMann

I just read Wake so I had to immediately pick this up.

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Darkside by Beth Fantaskey

I've heard so many good things about this one.

Eternal by Cynthis Leitich Smith
