In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is hosted by the innovative Kristi at The Story Siren as part of YA Connection. Check out her site to see what others got in their mailboxes this week!

I had a rather happy week, PBS-wise, I think. :)

From PaperbackSwap:

The Princess Bride by William Goldman

I don't think I even have to give a synopsis of this classic modern tale, do I?

Becoming Chloe by Catherine Ryan Hyde

A gay teen runaway teams up with the childlike Chloe to embark on a road trip of self-discovery and beauty. See my review here

Secrets of My Hollywood Life by Jen Calonita

Teen superstar Kaitlin Burke longs for a normal life, away from the cutthroat gossip of Hollywood. She goes undercover at a normal high school, only to find more trouble than she could have anticipated. See my review here.

Daddy Long-Legs by Jean Webster

An anonymous benefactor sends orphan Judy off to college, with the stipulation that she must write him letters about her life. Almost a classic piece of literature. Should be interesting.

Gregor the Overlander (Underland Chronicles Series #1) by Suzanne Collins

When eleven-year-old Gregor and his two-year-old sister are pulled into a strange underground world, they trigger an epic battle involving men, bats, rats, cockroaches, and spiders while on a quest foretold by ancient prophecy.

After reading--and loving--The Hunger Games, I decided to acquire this book and read it while impatiently waiting for Catching Fire to come out. Yay!

From the library:

Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Zombies at the local high school? What?? I've heard many good things about this book, so I'm excited to read it.
