In My Mailbox: The Scholastic Dinner Edition

Every Sunday through the In My Mailbox meme, YA book bloggers share the books they recently bought, borrowed, or received!


Friday night, Joyce Bautista, trade manager of Scholastic Philippines, and Roselle Masirag, education and trade manager of Scholastic Philippines, hosted a dinner for Filipino book bloggers.


I was glad to meet some other Filipino book bloggers for the first time, namely: Ronald of RonReads, Leia of Bitter Pills & Breathing Spaces, and Meann of New Worlds.




Of course, I was glad to see my blog friends again! <3

Here are the review copies I received at the dinner (Scholastic Philippines is curious about which Scholastic books from the U.S. and the U.K. they should focus on promoting in the Philippines):

Numbers by Rachel Ward


The Chaos by Rachel Ward


Linger by Maggie Stiefvater


Clarity by Kim Harrington


The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill


Blade of Fire by Stuart Hill


Last Battle of the Icemark by Stuart Hill


What books did you buy, borrow, or receive this past week? =D
