I love visiting all the other blogs and finding plenty of new books to pine after!
I didn't do an IMM last week because I was busy eating, arguing with relatives, and unwrapping things! So this IMM post is an accumulation of 2 weeks worth of books. Oh boy, did I get a lot of books! I got-
- Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake. This is a book that I initially wasn't sure about when I first saw it, but I have seen so many bloggers love it that I want to jump on the bandwagon. I just love the tagline too- "Just your average boy meets girl, girl kills people story...".
- Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. This looked like a really fun christmassy book that I just had to read at this time of year. I read it already and yes it is! Review coming soon...
From the Library:
- Shade by Jeri Smith Ready. Book 1 in an awesome looking series about people with powers.
- Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. I'm so curious about this one. I've read mixed reviews, but I personally really liked the Shiver series by this author.
- The Pledge by Kimberley Derting. I sooooo badly want to read this! It's a dystopian novel written by the author of the incredible Body Finder series.
- Fracture by Megan Miranda. Love the sound of this book- spooky and cool.
- Stolen Away by Alyxandra Harvey. I love the Drake Chronicles by this author (a vampire series), this is a new series about a girl who is abducted by faeries. This sounds like an excellent read as well.
Thanks to Bloomsbury Publishers and Netgalley for the advance E-copies of these books.
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I'm really excited to read this one- looks excellent.
- Once Every Never by Lesley Livingstone.
- Tempestuous by Lesley Livingstone. Book 3 in the Wondrous Strange series about faeries in New York.
- In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton. Book 2 in the Goblin Wars series (I still haven't read Book 1 yet but I've heard so many positive things about it, I think I'll like it)
- Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross. I'm looking forward to reading this steampunk novel. I'm so thrilled to get it for christmas- I've had real trouble getting hold of it.
- Shadow Hills by Anastacia Hopcus. Creepy looking. I wasn't interested at all in this book until they changed the cover. Something about this cover with the eye on it made me go "Oooooh!"
- Fighting to Survive by Rhiannon Frater. Book 2 in a series about a zombie apocalypse. I haven't read book 1 yet, but all the reviews I've seen are 5 star, and this looks really cool.
- Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. Could this book be any bigger?! This is Book 4 in the fantasy series which started with Eragon. An epic fantasy with magic and dragons.
I got thoroughly spoiled for christmas- better get reading them all! Those were all the books that came into my house this past fortnight. What did you get in your mailbox?
