in my mailbox #05

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I got a pile of books this week... mostly due to the Barnes & Noble bargain section on their website. The Friday Night Lights anthology was a must-have due to my undying love for the show.

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - Will finally read this after many recommendations!
A Friday Night Lights Companion by various authors (edited by Leah Wilson) - A collection of essays on the show. Robin Benway (of Audrey, Wait! one of my favorites) tweeted about contributing and I knew I had to have it.
Going in Circles by Pamela Ribon - Not YA, but about ROLLER DERBY.
Confessions of a First Daughter by Cassidy Calloway - I'm a PoliSci major. Enough said.
Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson - This came out forever ago and somehow I've never read it.
Confessions of a Serial Kisser by Wendelin Van Draanen - Sounds light & fun.
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King - A Printz Honor Book! Have been wanting to read this for months and will do so very soon.

I'm super late posting this today, so I'll be checking out mailboxes tomorrow. Hope you got something good!

  4. Yes to Amy & Roger!! You will have to tell me how Prom is. I've seen the book around, but never read it. Speaking of Prom -- did you ever see that cheesy disney movie that came out a few months back? (called Prom lol) I missed it in theaters & so I was thinking, when it comes out on dvd... movie date/slumber party at my casa with the other girls?! I'm thinking popcorn, candy, possible pillow fight (kidding! lol). Let me know!

  5. Yay! Amy and Roger's Epic Detour! *dances* It was such a great read! Hope you like it!
