IMM - In My Mailbox (#13)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Story Siren

The purpose of it is to post about the books we received during the past week (ARC, electronic galleys, books won in giveaways, bought or borrowed from the library - you can list anything you want!)

So! I'm actually in Toronto now (not in my home in Vancouver), visiting my in-laws :) And I figured, since I'm here already, might as well try and make the most out of it! I met up with the lovely Nicole from All I Ever Read (who FYI is the most fantabulous person EVER) and we stormed the Penguin Canada HQ together! We met up with the wonderful Bronwyn and Vimala (<3) and they were just fantastic - so sweet and friendly.. and they gave us books! Like a whole pile of them! :D Just look at the picture below - everything except for The Poison Eaters by Holly Black is a haul from out visit at Penguin! Isn't that just freaking amazing?!

I had so much fun drinking Starbucks coffee with the lovely ladies! We chatted about book and not-so-much-book related stuff and overall I was just.. drunk with happiness :D Thank you so much, Nicole, Bronwyn, Vimala - you made my day! (well, more like a month!)

And let's not forget about the cutest blogging lady - Angel from Mermaid Vision Books. Nicole and I met up with Angie after our visit at Penguin. We had a blast talking about books and roaming through the YA section over at Chapters! :) It was awesome to meet you, Angie! We have to do this again!

Here are some pictures from that great day! It's definitely a day to remember :)

Here are the books I got this week:

Matched by Ally Condie (finished copy from Penguin Canada)
Crossed by Ally Condie (ARC from from Penguin Canada)

Kathy said...

Amazing mailbox. So jealous of your visit to Penguin and Born Wicked. Glad you are having a fun time in Toronto.

Happy reading!

Casey (The Bookish Type) said...

ZOMG! Bloodrose! *dies of jealousy*

It looks like you're having a TON of fun!! Enjoy!

Britta said...

WHAT?!!! YOU GOT BLOODROSE!!! I am practically convulsing with jealously right now. I hope you know how big of a score that one is! They are making very limited number of ARCs - I doubt I'll get one. I really enjoyed Shattered Souls, and I like Crossed much better than Matched. I'm really looking forward to Born Wicked - I'll be waiting to see what you think.


Naj said...

OMG! Bloodrose! >.< I'm so jealous! Happy Reading!

Ahh, Crossed. I wish I could have it on my hands! I will just look at your pics until I get it. (laughs) I love the photos, by the way.

I am envious that you got an ARC of Crossed. I can't wait for that to come out.

Hanna said...

I don't know what to say, aside from making strangled noises of jealousy and shock!

That's such a great pile of books - and it was so nice of Penguin to give you them too :)

~Sara @ Just Another Story said...

Wow, Evie, you have some wicked books there. I should hit Toronto some day. Looks like you had an amazing time.

~Happy Reading!

Fairday Morrow said...

Sounds like a lot of fun and you got a lot of cool books! Lucky!!

I found you through Book Blogs and signed up to follow you. When you have a chance- please stop by and follow the blog for my middle grade novel that I am hoping to get published.

Take care-
Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out why that happens sometimes and I can't fix it. :)

Sonny said...

Wow, you have quite the pile this week! I loved Matched, and am so happy to be reviewing Crossed soon. I also would love to read The Space Between.
Thanks for the visit!
Happy Reading :D

Nicole said...

Lol. I can't believe you post those pics up! I had so much fun with you guys. We will have to do it again when you get back to Toronto in October!


Lisa ~ Bookworm Lisa said...

You got Crossed ~ the green eyed monster is beginning to show it's self in my eyes right now.

I am supposedly on a book buying ban right now. If I pick up a few things here and there with my shopping, maybe I can sneak it into my home.

Thanks for stopping by my IMM.

Bonnie said...

Ah! Looks like you had a fantastic time! I WISH I could have been there!! So jealous ;)

Bree said...
