In My Mailbox 36 + Fun Book Trailer Opportunity

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi over at The Story Siren and is a great way to see what other bloggers are reading and reviewing. I always love seeing what everyone else got for their week!


It's been a little while since I've done an IMM post, so these are the books I've received over the past couple weeks:

FOR REVIEW
Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey
Dark Eden by Patrick Carman
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton
Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
Lightbringer by K.D. McEntire
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
The Rift Walker by Clay and Susan Griffith
Alexander Death by JL Bryan
iBoy by Kevin Brooks

An enormous thank you this week to Penguin and Teen Book Scene, HarperTeen, Tor Teen, Sourcebooks, Pyr, Knopf books for Young Readers and NetGalley, Prometheus Books, JL Bryan, and Scholastic for sending me books I can't wait to read!

WANT TO BE IN A BOOK TRAILER?

Young adult author Daniel Cohen contacted me this week to let me know about a very cool opportunity for readers to be a part of the book trailer for his upcoming release, Masters of the Veil, and I wanted to share it with all of you! You can find the full details HERE, but basically you can submit a short video (or videos if you'd like to do more than one) of you improvising a few lines or just generally having fun pretending to be someone chock full of school spirit who's completely outraged that your high school football team has just royally blown the championship game. For submitting a clip you'll get a signed Masters of the Veil rack card, and if your clip is chosen for the trailer not only will your pretty face appear in the final cut for all to see, but you'll also receive a signed ARC as well.

I love that Daniel and Spencer Hill Press are trying to get readers and fans involved in the making of the book trailer, and if I didn't freeze like a freak of nature with a stupefied expression on my face when confronted with a video camera I would do this in a second! I'm really looking forward to seeing the final product:)

  26. Jenny, if it makes you feel any better, when my face sees a camera, my hand undoubtedly will pop in front of my face. It's like subconscious and beyond my control.

    Lightbringer I've seen around and it looks pretty awesome. I've heard some amazing things about Graffiti Moon, so hopefully there is win attached to it. :D I really ought to pick up Vampire Empire, I've heard so much about that one. Alas, I'm a slacker.

  30. Dragonswood! I'm really curious about that book. I liked her book Dragon's Keep. It was a deeper more nuanced book (even though it was SAD). I'm also really looking forward to your thoughts on Lightbringer. Hope you enjoy your books!
