In My Mailbox / New Crayons: More From Singapore

Sunday, June 12, 2011


Every Sunday for the In My Mailbox meme, YA book bloggers share the books they bought, borrowed, or received over the past week. New Crayons is a similar meme that incorporates children's books and books for adults, and focuses on multicultural literature.

These are the other ASIAN books I bought and received while I was in Singapore a couple of weeks ago:

The Book That Was Handed Down written by Yixian Quek and illustrated by Grace Duan Ying (Straits Times Press, 2008)


Does My Head Look Big In This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah (Scholastic Paperbacks, reprint edition 2008)


Where the Streets Had a Name by Randa Abdel-Fattah (Marion Lloyd Books, 2009)


Anya's War by Andrea Alban (Feiwel & Friends, 2011)


Artichoke Hearts by Sita Brahmachari (Macmillan Children's Books, 2011)


Indian Children's Favourite Stories written by Rosemarie Somaiah and illustrated by Ranjan Somaiah (Tuttle Publishing, 2006)


I also bought a bunch of Singaporean and Japanese teen magazines when I was in Singapore. Heeheehee.

What books did YOU buy, borrow, or receive over the past week? =D

Hi Tarie!!
I hadn't heard of Artichoke Hearts, so I looked it up. It seems it has been reviewed here in the US, has been released here but it barely has a page on Amazon, nothhing on the publisher's website. Interesting, huh?

These look interesting. Happy reading! Honestly, I think I must have purchased at least 50 books in the past few weeks. I went on a book buying binge. I'm slowing down, though.

Edi, perhaps another example of a POC book not being promoted enough? :o(

Medeia, why slow down? ;o) I love book buying binges!
