In My Mailbox was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren and it explores the contents of her mailbox or shopping bag on a weekly basis. My mom got me this super cute book bag for Christmas, hence my version of In My Mailbox.
So anyway, I went to my local library the other night to pick up a few things to get me started in the new year. Can I tell you how much I love my local library? The smell, the feel, the smell, the fantastic librarians... Did I mention the smell? I've been feeling a little under the weather the past few days, and I swear I feel revived from the trip. Not to mention the great finds I came home with! I was introduced to a lot of great YA fiction last year by the girls at the Nest, so I decided to kick off the new year with some of the recommended books I discovered through them.
I came home with The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin, and The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak.
