In My Mailbox (16)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we all share what we got during the week!

I am so late getting this posted this week! I was out enjoying my day---hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! Mine was lovely, baked cookies (the kind I already featured here, so that is why no Sunday Sweeties post this week!) and we all went to Barnes & Noble. :) I had fun looking through the YA section with my 15 year old daughter, usually she is in school when my hubby and I head off to the nearest bookstore, so it was fun to see what she picked up. She got such a kick out of the "Nightlight" parody of Twilight. She is a huge Twilight fan, has probably read each book 3 times.
So, here's what I got this week! I've been meaning to read The Hunger Games forever! Finally got a hold of a copy and also the audio book so I can read it when I'm home and listen when I'm at work or driving. Its SO good so far---I'm only a little ways into it and I've already almost cried twice. Powerful stuff.
I've been eyeing Falling in for months now and finally bought it today. It sounds like such a cute story and that cover is just outstanding!! It's glittery, too! Knightly Academy sounded a little Harry Potter-esque, which of course, sounds awesome! :) I actually checked this one out for hubby, and I will read it if I can fit it in! And I just have to add: the author has THE COOLEST name!!

Knightly Academy by Violet Haberdasher
Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Falling In by Frances O'Roark Dowell
