In My Mailbox #10

Won:



Matched by Ally Condie (Penguin/December 7, 2010 - Australia)

On her seventeenth birthday, Cassia meets her Match. Society dictates he is her perfect partner for life.

Except he's not.

In Cassia's society, Officials decide who people love.
How many children they have.
Where they work.
When they die.

But, as Cassia finds herself falling in love with another boy, she is determined to make some choices of her own.

And that's when her whole world begins to unravel . . .

I won this limited edition proof copy from Penguin Australia’s dedicated YA blog ‘Between the Lines’. I literally squealed when I found out I won. Isn't the book pretty? I love it, this is the first book I have ever won and no one in my house is allowed to touch it, well except for me. Thanks Penguin!

So that’s it from me, I hope you guys all had a great week, what books did you receive?
