In My Mailbox 7

What a random assortment of books I've acquired this week.

The Unwanteds
by Lisa McMann
Aladdin
August 2011

Here's the book I'm most excited about. It sounds like a dystopian, magical adventure story. I've heard it described as "The Giver meets Harry Potter"


Frankie Pickle and the Mathematical Menace
by Eric Wight
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
July 2011

I haven't read many of these. (They are never on the shelf!) but I like the looks of this one already. There's a dog in a wizard outfit, that's got to be pretty good right?




Atlanta's Stone Mountain: A Multicultural History
by Lora Pond Mirza and Paul Stephen Hudson
The History Press
June 2011

Okay, not my normal fare, but I'm excited about this book, because my mother-in-law co-wrote it! I went to her book launch this week, and they gave an incredible talk about the history of the mountain, including some scathing commentary on the KKK.


God, No!
by Penn Jillette
Simon & Schuster
August 2011

I don't read
very many adult books, but I'm reading this one now. Jillette is surprisingly tender and hilariously crass by turns, as he shares his atheist values in this interesting memoir.

  5. Nice mailbox :) I'm curious about The Unwanteds, too. Harry Potter meets The Giver are some pretty big shoes to fill!
