In My Mailbox (20)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to highlight all the books we have bought, borrowed, received, or downloaded during the week. 

Things have been pretty slow around here since school has started up again. All my extra time and money has gone to getting my classroom up and going. And let me just say, middle schoolers are very time consuming! 

I did manage to grab a few books over the last two weeks. 


FallenThe Hunger Games

Next week my IMM should be EPIC. I just placed a gigantic order with Scholastic to restock my classroom library. Hope those come in soon.


  1. I really enjoyed The Hunger Games. Fallen is still on my TBR list. I'm sure your students will appreciate that big book order you put in with Scholastic!

    Also, I’m a new follower— awesome blog! Stop by my blog and follow me too? :)

  2. I'm new to your blog but I love your header and name. I still have to read Fallen, it is sitting patiently waiting for me. Happy reading!

  3. Hope you enjoy Hunger Games if you haven't read it yet! I wasn't a big fan of Fallen, but I thought the second book in the series got better :) Happy reading :)

  4. Ohhh, I love both of those books!

    My daughter just started middle school this year! It's been interesting, so far!

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.

Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
