In My Mailbox #14: August 7 - 13, 2011 Edition

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.

The purpose of the meme is to highlight books that you have received in your mailbox over the past week.  So let’s see what I got in my mailbox this week!

So this week I had the opportunity to take part in a focus group held at Penguin Canada HQ to give them some feedback on their new YA imprint Razorbill.  I had an awesome time and met some great people.  At the end of the focus group, we had the opportunity to get our hands on some books.  Even though there was no limit to how many we could takeI honestly feel bad cause I didn't realize how many books I had!  I think I feel a giveaway coming up!

Matched by Ally Condie

Crossed (ARC Copy) by Allie Condie

The Future of Us (ARC Copy) by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler

Kill All Enemies (ARC Copy) by Melvin Burgess

Glow (ARC Copy) by Amy Kathleen Ryan [Goodreads Giveaway]

Massive thanks to Bronwyn and Vimala and everyone at Penguin Canada.  They were so lovely to invite us and were amazing hosts.  *Waves* hi to my fellow focus group attendees Mel from He Followed Me Home, Jackie from My Ever Expanding Library, Brenna from Esther's Ever After, Gwenn from Rants & Scribbles, Erin and Jenn.

This was a fabulous group of women and I encourage you all to check them out if you haven't before!

What's in your mailbox this week?

Crossed and The Story of Us? SOOOOO lucky!

Nicole said...

Hi Beth,

I know what you mean. I read the little teaser that was put into the new version of Thirteen Reasons Why and I have been dying to read it ever since.

Nicole said...

Hi Alison,

I feel bad because everyone wants to read Crossed, and I haven't even read Matched yet!

Nicole said...

Hi Jessica,

I so have to read Matched first. Judging by everyone's comments, I am sure to enjoy it.
