In My Mailbox #4

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme brought about by The Story Siren. It's a fun way to share what you're reading, reviewing, about to read, etc. All images below are from Goodreads.

I didn't have that much time this past week to go into finding new books, so I'm including a few that are around the house that I've been meaning to read for ages but I haven't been able to.

For Review:
Everything! I've been very behind this week on my reading and reviewing. So, what I had listed for review last week is the same for this week.

To Read:
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Vladimir Nabokov

Heat Wave by Richard Castle

Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine where bloggers post spotlights on upcoming releases that they're eagerly anticipating.

This week, my pick is See You at Harry's by Jo Knowles. Publication Date: May 8th 2012 by Candlewick Press

Goodreads Review: Starting middle school brings all the usual challenges - until the unthinkable happens, and Fern and her family must find a way to heal.

Twelve-year-old Fern feels invisible. It seems as though everyone in her family has better things to do than pay attention to her: Mom (when she's not meditating) helps Dad run the family restaurant; Sarah is taking a gap year after high school; and Holden pretends that Mom and Dad and everyone else doesn't know he's gay, even as he fends off bullies at school. Then there's Charlie: three years old, a "surprise" baby, the center of everyone's world. He's devoted to Fern, but he's annoying, too, always getting his way, always dirty, always commanding attention. If it wasn't for Ran, Fern's calm and positive best friend, there'd be nowhere to turn. Ran's mantra, "All will be well," is soothing in a way that nothing else seems to be. And when Ran says it, Fern can almost believe it's true. But then tragedy strikes- and Fern feels not only more alone than ever, but also responsible for the accident that has wrenched her family apart. All will not be well. Or at least all will never be the same.

What's your Waiting on Wednesday pick?
