Advanced Reader Copies for review
Simon & Schuster Canada was kind enough to send me:
From Beth Revis (they are at work I will add a picture later)
- 2 autographed bookmarks
- 1 autographed postcard
- 1 autographed sticker
I entered that contest using my library info so the bookmarks and postcards will go to participating teens at the library. I swiped the sticker for myself because it’s awesome and I entered the contest in my free time 😉
- Across The Universe by Beth Revis (I put my autograph sticker in the book, this is partly why I was so impatient to buy it. Marketing strategies work a little too well on me sometimes) The cover is delightful, I like to buy beautiful books, I’m shallow that way.
From the Kobo store
- XVI by Julia Karr this looks both horrifying and awesome. I have the e-book on my computer and my Kobo, meaning it will be my lunchbreak/out and about book not my lazy day or nighttime book, probably for the best because I think I’m going to find it disturbing (in a that’s horrible but I’m glad you wrote about it kind of way).
Both of my purchased books will count towards the 2011 Debut Author Challenge.
From the ORL:
- Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. I’m enjoying the Uglies series so far and I’ve heard great things about this other series by Westerfeld. It appeals to boys, and I’ve been wanting to read more guy friendly YA. I believe this one will count towards the Historical Fiction Challenge (even though it has fantastical elements).
