In My Mailbox {57}

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

Got some lovelies for review this week! For review:
So Shelly by Ty Roth
I've had my eye on this one forever! Classical poets written as modern day teenagers---sound so amazing!

The Queen of Water by Laura Resau & Maria Virginia Farinango
I haven't heard much about this one, but I am really intrigued! It's a story of self-discovery about a young Equadorian girl, based on a true story.

Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
I've been curious about this one, so I'm glad to get to try it out!

Exposed by Kimberly Marcus
Another book in verse and after my first experience with this format, I'm looking forward to diving into it again. It's about a girl who has a passion for photography whose family is turned upside down when her brother is accused of rape. Sounds very intense.

The Jersey Tomatoes are the Best by Maria Padian
This looks like a sweet story, about two best friends who will do anything for each other.

Somber Island by T. Lynne Tolles
Signed by author and included some lovely bookmarks! This one looks eerie---looking forward to it!

Huge thanks to Random House & T. Lynne Tolles for sending these for review!

So, that's all for me this week! Let's see those mailboxes!
