In My Mailbox #9

Today I am going to share the books that I received either through contests, for review, or books that I bought for personal/classroom library use. If you've read any of these books, please tell me what you think! This meme is hosted by The Story Siren. Happy reading!

Kimberly Derting's Street Team Swag 

I nearly died when I opened this package. I have a bunch of signed bookmarks and two different types of stickers to give out to my students to promote the release of The Body Finder, which comes out on March 16th. Everyone needs to get a copy! I loved this book. Read my review here. Also, Kimberly Derting supplied me with signed posters to give out to my students and I'm going to share one with the librarian at school. My students are going to be ecstatic. I also freaked out about one of the posters she signed for me. Check it out!
Lastly, I received a Body Finder bag, which perfect for caring around all my books to and from work and an official Street Team certificate. I am really excited to share some Body Finder love with my students, because this book truly rocks!  I know they will love it!  I plan on framing the poster and certificate and putting it up in my classroom!  A big thanks to Kimberly Derting for allowing me to be a part of this!  

Thirteen Days Till Midnight by Patrick Carman
I received this ARC through Hachette and the SLJ Webinar about upcoming spring books.  I'm pretty excited to start this one.  It comes out April 12th.
Goodreads says, "When Jacob’s foster father whispers, “You are indestructible” seconds before dying in a car crash that should’ve killed them both, Jacob never imagines he could possess a real superpower. To test it Jacob and his friends start indulging comic book-like fantasies. Later, they commit to use this amazing power of indestructibility to do good in the world and save others from death. But how do they decide who to save? And what happens when they blur the lines of life and death, right and wrong, and good and evil? Thirteen Days to Midnight is a nail-biting tale of dark intrigue, powerful romance, friendship and adventure."

The Brimstone Key (Grey Griffins: The Clockwork Chronicles #1) by Derek Benz and J.S. Lewis
I received this ARC also through Hachette and the SLJ webinar.  This book doesn't come out until June 7th and it looks like the start of a really fun series. I think my students will like this one!
Amazon says, "A year ago, the Grey Griffins were just regular kids from Avalon, Minnesota. That was before they learned about the existence of evil fairies, werewolves, and other things that go bump in the night. Now they are monster-hunters, celebrated heroes, and allies to the legendary Templar knights---but even heroes have to go to school.When the Griffins enroll at Iron Bridge Academy, a school to train young recruits in the fight against the forces of evil, they find themselves at the center of a whole new adventure. The Clockwork King, a Templar foe from days past, has returned to finish the plan he set in motion decades ago. A plot to steal the souls of changelings---humans infused with fairy blood and supernatural abilities---in order to power his army of clockwork war machines."

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
I also received this ARC through Hachette and the SLJ webinar.  I've read a lot of good reviews for this book so far and am looking forward to reading it. It comes out June 7th. 
Goodreads says, "Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris-- the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead. Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts fiercely alongside her. Now Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves and finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax-- but loving him means betraying her sister and has the potential to destroy all they've worked for."

*A big thank you to Hachette for providing me with these exciting ARCs.
