In My Mailbox (43)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren

Gah! I have not posted an IMM in such a long time! These aren't all the books that I have received since my last one but I kinda just decided to do an IMM five minutes ago and these were the books I quickly grabbed.

For Review
From Egmont:
- Carmen by Walter Dean Myers
- Will Work for Prom Dress by Aimee Ferris
- Bitter Melon by Cara Chow
- My Life, the Theatre, and Other Tragedies by Allen Zadoff
- Rich and Mad by William Nicholson (I got this some months ago...might've already showcased this)
- Never Sit Down in a Hoopskirt and Other Things I Learned in Southern Belle Hell by Crickett Rumley
- The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski
- Hourglass by Myra McEntire
- Family by Micol Owstow
Thanks Egmont!

From Simon & Schuster:
- Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
- Stay by Deb Caletti
I'm actually not sure if these were surprise review copies or if I won them anyway, thanks S&S!

From Houghton Mifflin:
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
Thanks Houghton Mifflin!

Won from Alea:
Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
Thanks Alea!

Bought from Half-Prize books:
- Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
- Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger
- One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest by Ken Kesey
- Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger (not pictured)
For my English honors class we had to pick a 20th century novel from a list. I chose Catcher in the Rye but got the other books because I thought someone else would choose it but I also plan on reading them anyway. 

Hope you all got some great books this week!

**I did not get all of these books this week.

You have so many great books! I have to say I love the title of Never Sit Down in a Hoopskirt and Other Things I Learned in Southern Belle Hell, and only hope it lives up to it. Good luck getting through reading all of these!
