In My Mailbox #6: OCTOBER 2015 EDITION!

Hi everyone!

This month I have been super busy with school and haven’t been able to post much of anything! I’m going to try hard in November to post at least 3 times a week, so that in December I can post everyday!

This month I received a TON of books from a lot of different publishers, so I thought it would be fun to do a collective In My Mailbox! Let me know if you would want to see one of these every few months, or one every time I get a package in the mail!

Back in August, I got an email from Margaret Chiavette about reading and reviewing her new fantasy novel, The Alchemist’s Theorem: Sir Duffy’s Promise. I thought that it sounded great, so I jumped on the chances! The picture above is a finished copy, but I received a paper back ARE! You can pre-order the book here.


I then recieved a BEAUTIFUL FINISHED COPY of Illumnae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I quite enjoyed These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman, so I requested an ARE of this book. The book premise sounds amazing, I believe it is all written in emails, codes and messages. Plus, this book is the Booksplosion BOTM, and you can find out more about the amazing book club here. I’m so excited to read this book next month!


If you didn’t know this about me, I am a HUGE YouTube watcher! Back in May (2015), I got the chance to read and review Joey Graceffa’s book “My Journey to a Pixelated World”. When I found out that one of my favourite YouTubers’ Tyler Oakley was coming out with a book, I jumped to find the publishing house he signed with, and low and behold it was Simon and Schuster! Joey signed with S&S too! I quickly emailed Amy and requested a review copy. On the day of the release, a beautiful finished copy of Binge landed on my door step, and I have never probably been more excited for an ARE ever! I am currently reading this book and it is AMAZING! Expect a review very soon!

The last package I received was from Raincoast Books! This was my first time receiving books in the mail from Raincoast, although I went to an event earlier this fall from Raincoast which you can learn about here.  I requested several books from their monthly YA ARC Newsletter, and these were the 2 I recieved! I am so excited to read these books, as I have heard some great things about both of them!


There you have it! My October 2015 in my mailbox! If you want to read my past “In My Mailboxes”, click here!

In My Mailbox #3: Simon and Schuster Canada!

Hi everyone!

Since a lot of you guys enjoy this feature on my blog, I thought that I would make another post featuring what I found in my mailbox as for books this week.

X-Men meets Heroes when New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti to create a sizzling new series filled with action and adventure.
Don’t call them heroes.
But these six Californian teens have powers that set them apart.
Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days.
Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the recue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. At the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases.
Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series. – See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/Zeroes/Scott-Westerfeld/9781481443364#sthash.XJurxKOw.dpuf

Contemporary fantasy meets true crime when schools of ancient sorcery go up against the art of the long con in this stunningly entertaining debut fantasy novel.
Mike Wood is satisfied just being a guy with broad shoulders at a decidedly unprestigious Catholic school in Manhattan. But on the dirty streets of New York City he’s an everyman with a moral code who is unafraid of violence. And when Mike is unwittingly recruited into a secret cell of magicians by a fellow student, Mike’s role as a steadfast soldier begins. These magicians don’t use ritualized rote to work their magic, they use willpower in their clandestine war with the establishment: The Assholes. – See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/The-War-Against-the-Assholes/Sam-Munson/9781481427746#sthash.9zEq9emB.dpuf

In My Mailbox #2: HarperTeen + SSC!

Hi everyone!

A lot of you guys really enjoyed last weeks In My Mailbox, so I thought that I would do another one for the books I got this week!


The first book I recieved was from HarperTeen/HCC Frenzy! The book is called Kissing in America by Margo Rabb! This book cover is GORGEOUS, and I will be reading it very soon!

For those of you who love Joey Graceffa (I know I do!), you will be VERY jealous of this book that I got on Thursday! I was reached out by Simon and Schuster Canada, to have to oppurtunity to recieve in ARC of Joey’s new book “In Real Life”! Here’s is the excerpt I was provided to share:

 You may know Joey from his popular YouTube channel with over 4 million subscribers and his daily vlog outings, Joey’s videos are fun and playful but he’s also not afraid to open up about his past and present demons. Often vlogging on the way home from therapy sessions — Joey has confessed the ways in which he needs to improve, what he struggles over, which habits he needs to learn to break. He’s been open about his the difficulties of his childhood which include his parents’ divorce, his alcoholic mother, and being bullied at school. In Real Life will dive deeper into these formative experiences in Joey’s life, all of which have in some way or another led to this monumental stage, his public coming out, a beautiful and inspiring confession that takes place right in the book itself.
You can get a sneak peek of the book here – where Joey and some of his Youtube friends read the intro to his memoir.

I hope you liked my second In My Mailbox! Be sure to like this post, I know that you guys like these!

My Mailbox #1: Simon and Schuster Canada!

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to be sharing with you what I got in my Mailbox this week, as far as books go! I will be doing this every so often, as there are certain times in a month when I get a ton of books from publishers, or order them online. These will be similar to my “oh so beloved” book hauls!

This week, I received a package from my favourite publishing house Simon and Schuster Canada!

Fun Fact: Simon and Schuster Canada, was the first publishing house I have ever recieved books from! I started receiving ARCs in April 2014. My blog was only about 5 months old, so I was thrilled to get books for “free“. 

The First ARC I received in this package was…

Three Day Summer

Three Day Summer by Sarvenaz Tash. This book sounds AMAZING, and if you think this cover is beautiful, you MUST see it in real life! I’m sure that it will be even prettier in hardcover (if that’s humanely possible)! This book is set to come out on May 19, 2015.

Galgorithm

The next and final book I received was Galgorithm by Aaron Karo! This book sounds right up my allie and down right spectacular! This book is set to come out on May 5, 2015.


Those are all of the lovely books I received in the mail this week! I will have a review up for them on the day that they come out, so mark your calenders! Be sure to let me know what books you bought/received this week & if you would like to see more “My Mailbox” posts!

Good Night Book Lions!
