Book Hunting Expeditions

In My Mailbox: Books for Review

And so we join the weekly meme (In my Mailbox) yet again as hosted by The Story Siren. It’s fun seeing what other people bought, received, stole during the course of the week. I had an unexpected set of books arrive literally in my mailbox earlier this week, although technically speaking, I should have prepared for it any day now. The books are courtesy of Samantha Teo from Pansing Distribution here in Singapore.

Boxful of books.
Five heavy-duty, extremely thick books.

There’s a reason why I mostly review picture books. I am quite swamped by university duties, and while I welcome welcome YA fiction, it does make me scared sometimes seeing its absolute thickness. These books I would need to share with fellow bibliophiles Mary Iphigene and Fats since I doubt I can finish reading them all in the next few months or so (apologies, dearest publishers). I’d leave one or two for myself and distribute the tasks accordingly. They all look mighty exciting though. I am sure I would have a fun time with them.

How about you? What books do you have in your mailbox for the week?

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
