Great New Books from Mary!!!

Our American book angel, Mary, has done it again. In July, she sent us two big boxes of 24 incredible books. She has managed to get her hands on a lot of the books that are very popular in the SRR and has been able to get many coveted hardcover books for the collection. Thanks so much Mary! We really appreciate all the amazing books you've been sending us! This should really cause stir in the SRR.

After watching The Lightning Thief movie I was hoping to read the series. I'm happy to say that Mary has sent us a whole collection of the books. If you enjoyed the movie as much as I do, you are sure to enjoy this set.

Looking for Alaska placed #4 on the 2005 Teens' Top Ten list so it will likely be a very good read. Of course Green has really established himself because he took #1 in 2009's list with Paper Towns. This is one author you may want to check out.

Shannon Hale has also established herself with The Goose Girl (#7 in 2004) and River Secrets (#7 in 2007). Perhaps she is another popular author worth looking at. I can't wait to hear a few reviews on these books.

Picoult, Dessen, Westerfeld, and Kinsella need no introduction. Their books already have a following at the school so these will all be snapped up the minute they hit the shelves. Enjoy!

Here is a list of the books that Mary sent in July:

  • This Lullaby - Dessen
  • Looking for Alaska - John Green
  • Twenties Girl - Kinsella
  • The Undomestic Goddess - Kinsella
  • New Moon - Meyer
  • Brisingr - Paolini
  • My Sister's Keeper - Picoult
  • The Pact - Picoult
  • Plain Truth - Picoult
  • The Last Olympian - Riordan
  • Specials - Westerfeld
  • Firegirl - Abbott
  • City of Glass - Clare
  • The Handbook of Pirates - Deary
  • River Secrets - Hale
  • Emma Burning - Hale
  • The Goose Girl - Hale
  • Eldest - Paolini
  • Maximum Ride: Saving the World - Patterson

  • The Titan's Curse - Riordan
  • The Battle of Labyrinth - Riordan

Great New Books from Peta!!!

Hi everyone,

I've been meaning to update the blog for weeks. I wanted to announce some great new additions to the collection this week. In July, Peta sent us another 10 amazing books for you to enjoy. In particular, I think you will be interested to know that she has sent two hardcover copies of Stephanie Meyer's new book The Second Life of Bree Tanner. I just know that these books will be very, very popular.

As well, the girls who loved Cashore's Graceling will be happy to know that Peta also sent us book #2 called Fire.

Another great book worth noting is the #1 book from the 2009 Teens' Top Ten list by John Green called Paper Towns. It actually won against competition from Breaking Dawn and The Hunger Games. I was so eager to find out what all the fuss was about so I read it yesterday. Great book!

As well, Peta has managed to close up the final book on our 2004 Teens Top Ten list of books with the addition of the pirate adventure called Curse of the Blue Tattoo by LA Meyer. Have a look at our complete collection HERE.

Also, here is the complete list of Peta's July donations:
  • The Second Life of Bree Tanner (two copies)
  • Fire
  • Paper Towns
  • Curse of the Blue Tattoo
  • Endymion Spring (hc)
  • Ghost Stories
  • Speak
  • Usborne Big Book of Puzzle Adventures
  • Ryland's Footsteps

These are wonderful books that have been added to the collection. Thanks so much Peta!!!
