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
