In My Mailbox (14)

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

My IMM is pretty short this week. I'm waiting on books to arrive; thus, a super short list. I've decided to spend the remainder of July reading as many MG books as I can to help prepare for next school year. Plus, reading these will make more room on my shelves. Good plan, right?
For Review:

Back When You Were Easier to Love(Dutton Books), The Time Traveling Fashionista (Little Brown), Odd Girl In (Simon & Schuster), Cloudy with a Chance of Boys (Candlewick Press), and An Accidental Adventure: We Are Not Eaten by Yaks(Penguin).
