In My Mailbox

  Inspired by Alea, memefied by Kristi of the Story Siren!
  Last week, I was incredibly lazy and didn't do an IMM post, so I decided to combine last week's books with this week's:

From Random House:

- Breathless by Lurlene McDaniel
I've heard of this author before, but I've never read any of her books. This one looks really good, though!
- Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
I haven't read the first book, Stargirl, but I've always wanted to. I just love the simple, cute covers of these books, though, don't you?
- 30 Days to Finding and Keeping Sassy Sidekicks and BFFs by Clea Hantman
I've flipped through this one a few times and it's very cute, with pink-and-brown pages and lots of fun tips and stuff. Watch for a review coming soon!
- The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
Yet another series I haven't read! I've heard so much about these books, though, that I'll definitely be checking the first one out of the library once I've eaten through most of my TBR pile. This book is huge--more than 800 pages!
- If The Witness Lied by Caroline Cooney
This sounds like a fast-paced mystery that I'll save for a rainy day. I read The Face on the Milk Carton by the same author, and really liked it--hopefully this one will be as good!

For review:
Donut Days by Laura Zielin
This is probably the biggest ARC I have ever seen--it's like this really big manuscript! I am so excited to read this book (it comes out in August). I just love the cover, and Laura is super-nice: she even sent me Dunkin' Donuts coupons! Thanks, Laura!

From Kristi:
Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle
I won this in a contest and I'm so excited to read it! I actually have only read one of Lauren's books before, and it was just OK. But this one sounds really great. I especially love the cover--SO simple and fun and adorable!

From the library:

Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott
One word: YAY! I love the cover of this one, and I've heard so much good feedback about it (and about Elizabeth Scott, in general) that I'm so happy to begin!

From Barnes & Noble:

Sleepaway Girls by Jen Calonita
Yayayayayayay! I am so excited to begin this one because:
a) I love Jen Calonita
b) I love camp books
c) I'm in need of a big dose of summer fun!

I can't wait for Donut Days to be out. It looks great. =D

And you MUST read Stargirl ASAP. It is awesome.

Looks like you had a great week. I've read Stargirl but I haven't read the sequel yet. Enjoy.
