In My Mailbox - 02/14/2010

brief IMM post because I just got back from today's Chinese New Year celebrations. HAPPY NEW YEARS TO MY FELLOW ASIANS WHO ARE CELEBRATING! Also Happy Valentine's for those who celebrate that holiday, etc.

(meme by The Story Siren)



The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han (Thanks ninefly)
Ravenous by Sharon Ashwood (signed) + bookmark & letter (Thanks Tynga)
Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan (Borrowed from ninely)
A Million Shades of Grey by Cynthia Kadohata (Sent to me by Book Chick City THANKS SO MUCH.) *
The Serpent's Children by Laurence Yep
Dragon's Gate by Laurence Yep
Mountain Light by Laurence Yep

Mwuahaha, I'm closer to collecting the whole Golden Mountain Chronicles series!! Also, haz The Summer I Turned Pretty. Also known as, ohmigawd it's Jenny freakin' Han. Same applies for Cynthia Kadohata, except, you know, amplified 10 fold.

* Finished it today. Soooooooooo good. And the saddest Kadohata MG story by far. (For those who know Kadohata, yeah, that is REALLY saying something)

Justine...Justine ASKED YOU? *is envious*

Great post BTW. I've been much more aware of race in my story because of you, and they're all more culturally diverse than I expected.

I loved your guest post, though it made me sad. I need to read all the Laurence Yep books (I read all the ones having to do with dancers when I was kid, but I don't remember all of them and I want to read the whole Golden Mountain chronicles).

I gave you an award http://blackteensread2.blogspot.com/2010/02/winner-blog-awards.html

A Million Shades of Grey is just brilliant, isn't it? And incredibly sad.
