In My Mailbox {5}


I kind of forgot to post my mailbox from last week, so this week includes a small highlight of books I also received last week as well as this week's books. These past couple weeks have been AWESOME in terms of books received :) There are so many good ones I've just been itching to get in to! And as you can see, I'm really going to a busy few months ahead of me for reading.

  • Starcrossed by Josepine Angelini (purchased from BD)
  • Across the Universe by Beth Ravis (purchased from BD)
  • Die for Me by Amy Plum (purchased from BD)

  • On Wednesday, August 10th I had a fantastic opportunity to attend the Penguin Canada HQ in Toronto where I got to discuss YA books and Penguin with some other great book lovers and the wonderful folks at Penguin Canada. As a thank you, they very graciously allowed us to select some goodies to take home with us! These are probably my favourite picks this week :)
    • The Replacementn by Brenna Yovanoff (same name as me!)
    • ARC of A Million Suns by Beth Ravis (TBR: January 10, 2012)
    • ARC of Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer (TBR: January 24, 2012)
    • What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
    • Dust City by Robert Paul Weston
    Bloodrose's release has been moved up from February 2012 to January 2012! Very exciting news, which is sure to please everyone ;)

     Finally, there are some very cool e-books I received since the beginning of August:
    • The Adventures of Benjamin Skyhammer by Nicole Sheldrake (from author)
      MY REVIEW FOR THE ADVENTURES OF BENJAMIN SKYHAMMER
    • Remembrance by Michelle Madow (from author)
    • The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees (Net Galley - HarlequinTEEN)

    • The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa (Net Galley - HarlequinTEEN)
    • Centauriad #1: Daughter of the Centaurs (Net Galley - Random House Children's)
    A big, big thank you to everyone who provided me with these wonderful books- authors, publishers, other bloggers! I really appreciate it so much.
