In My Mailbox – Week 32

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's to showcase books which I've received, borrowed, bought, etc. throughout this week!
Another pretty exciting week for Books That Glow: YA & MG 2013. Yes, we've had a name change for our, and hopefully you all like it as much (or even more!) than the previous name. Anyway, onto the books!

I'm pretty excited! I know another book is with Richa, but I can't wait till I get my paws hands on that when she's done :)

Thank you so much to all the authors mentioned above, as well as 

Speaking of our event, yesterday I had the incredible opportunity to meet Holly Thompson (author of The Language Inside in my pic above!). She came to my school's other (East) campus, and she gave a presentation to teachers and librarians on Texts Worth Teaching: East Asia, and that is where she gave me an ARC of her upcoming The Language Inside. Of course, me begin neither a teacher or a librarian, I was extremely fortunate enough that Holly was amazing to invite me! I must admit, I felt out of place at first, and then I met the head librarian, Katie Day, and then BAM! we began talking about books. She even let me borrow three books out of their library– check it out:

...And once again, my SAT book makes an appearance.
I borrowed Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork. Both Katie and Holly were extremely enthusiastic about this book, so I decided, why not? Then comes Being Here by Barry Jonsberg. I have actually never heard of this book, so I'm definitely curious to see what it's about. And finally, a book which I've been DYING to read for so long, The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler. I really loved Thirteen Reasons Why by Asher, and so I'm definitely looking forward to digging into this!

Thank you so much to Katie Day for giving me these recommendations! And here are some pictures I took of the conference during Holly's presentation:

And that is it once again, my lovelies, for this week's In My Mailbox! Once again, a huge thank you to all the authors above and Katie Day for making this a spectacular week. I can't wait to see what next week brings.

Until then, tell me:
