In My Mailbox (20)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It's a post where we talk about the books we received during the week either for review, from the bookstore or anywhere else.

This week wasn't quite as epic as last week but it was still pretty awesome. I didn't buy any new books but I received 5 new ones so it's still really exciting. I'm really looking forward to reading all of these wonderful books. So without further ado, here are all the books that I got this week.




For Review:

- Dead to You by Lisa McMann - Though I own some of her books, I haven't actually read anything by Lisa McMann so I'm hoping that this one will be a good introduction to her writing. At any rate, the book sounds really interesting and I am looking forward to reading it. It sounds like it might be a thriller, which is something there just isn't enough of in YA so I'm really excited about it.

- The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler - I have been wanting to read this book since I first found out about it earlier this year. It just sounds so cool what with the characters going on the Internet and finding their Facebook profiles 15 years into the future. So if you couldn't tell, I'm really excited about this book and you can be sure I'll be getting around to reading it soon.

- My Beating Teenage Heart by C.K. Kelly Martin - This book sounds really interesting so when the author contacted me asking if I was interested in reviewing it, I jumped at the occasion. I haven't read anything by C.K. Kelly Martin but from what I hear her books are really good so I'm really looking forward to reading this one.

- WinterTown by Stephen Emond - This book sounds really great and I am loving contemporaries as of late so it's perfect for me. And by the sound of it, it's from the perspective of a boy, which is something books in YA don't do often enough. As much as I love my heroines, sometimes a hero is a refreshing change. I should also be getting to this one quite soon so hopefully it will be as good as it sounds.


Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada, Penguin Canada, HBG Canada and C.K. Kelly Martin for all of these wonderful books.


Gifted/Won:

- Don't Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala - I have heard nothing but absolutely amazing things about Holly Cupala and her books. So when I got the chance to receive a copy of Don't Breathe a Word, I jumped on it and got really excited. I'm hoping to read this one quite soon to see just how amazing it is for myself. And thank you to Denise Jaden for sending this to me along with all the swag pictured below.


So that's all I got in my mailbox this week and I'm really excited about it all. Let me know what you got in the comments below and I will come check out what you got in your mailbox!

  1. They all sound interesting, and I like the idea of The Future of Us. Wonder what I'd be writing on Facebook in fifteen years...or what new form of social network will have taken over by then!

    YA's the Word
