In My Mailbox (33)

IMM is a weekly meme that explores the contents of one's mailbox. IMM was started by Kristi at The Story Siren. Descriptions are from Amazon and book covers.

For Review:

Time You Let Me In selected by Naomi Shihab Nye
(HC/February 2010/Greenwillow)

They are inspiring talented stunning remarkable wise

They are also fearless depressed hilarious impatient in love out of love pissed off

And they want you to let them in.

I'm really getting into poetry lately, so I'm excited to check this out.


Tao-Girls Rule by CJ Golden
(PB/October 2009/Eronel)

With an infectious wit and an eye on the prize, Tao-Girls Rule! is part philosophy, part self-help, and all girl-power. From the author of Tao of the Defiant Woman comes this award winning, incredibly inspiring collection of anecdotes on how to be the girl who will become a strong and courageous woman. Writer and noted speaker CJ Golden leaves nothing to chance as she breaks the mold on the idea that girls are made of sugar, spice, and all things nice. Sure, that's part of it, but it also takes grit, perseverance, imagination, and self-awareness. Filled with anecdotes and personal stories of girl power, in twelve chapters with titles such as "A Tao-Girl is Tenacious" and "Take the Tao-Girl Challenge," teens and pre-teens will be able to see how they can remain true to themselves as they face the challenges of growing up in a complex and ever-changing world. While it's great to be a girl-it's even better to be a Tao-Girl!

Sounds interesting. I received this and the one above from Reader Views Kids.


Pretty on the Outside by Kate Kingsley
(PB/April 2010/Simon Pulse)

Alice and Tally have ruled St. Cecilia's, their private boarding school just outside of London, for years. As everyone comes back for their junior year, the girls can't wait to start partying in London and jetting off to Paris and Rome. As Alice begins to realize that she has more than friendly feelings for Tristan, her long time best friend, she thinks the excitement of a new crush will make this year the best yet. But when Dylan, the American girl Tristan summered with in the Hamptons transfers to St. Cecilia's, the girls' perfect lives spiral into broken hearts, jealousies, and revenge plots that will change everything.

I'm really in the mood for a drama filled read like this! Is this the US version of the UK series? This was a surprise from Simon & Schuster.

I had a good week! What about you?
