Sorry the pic is a little funky and don't mind the card reader in the back ground lol. So far I've been able to read Going to Far and really liked it... a review should be posted for it and the others I need to catch up on tomorrow. Also, I'll be posting my first author interview!! Exciting! :o)

  1. Awesome loot!! I am so jealous of THE MAZE RUNNER!! AND Girl in the Arena! AH! Yay for Crash Into ME! You had a great week! Happy reading! :)


  2. Thanks! :o) I can't wait to read them all. At least this week I'll have some time waiting for next weekend lol. It was a great week in books, but a long week all around. I'm ready to crash out for the night, however the laundry doesn't want me too.


  3. The Monstrumologist looks excellent, as do all the other books. Enjoy!

    What Book is That?

  4. I haven't had a chance to read much if the Monstrumologist... I'm sure I'll have a better idea about the book in the next day or 2.


  5. Great books you got this week. They all look really good. I have yet to read Prophecy of the Sisters. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  6. I need to check out Crash Into Me. That cover calls to me...

  7. TBV - isn't that funny how a cover can do that to a person?

  8. It happens all the time to me! The cover draws me in then I read the synopsis (crossing my fingers that it'll interest me). It's a real sad moment when I'm not interested in a book and yet I love the cover.

  9. Oooh, Girl In The Arena! I remember seeing this book somewhere but in my haste forgot to write it down. Thanks for the reminder! Looks like some solid reading time ahead of you. :)

  10. You have some good ones! I want to read Maze Runner.

    Here is mine:


  11. Going 2 far & Crash into me is sooooo good. Put them 2 @ the top of your reading list :D

  12. Nikki - glad seeing it here helped you to remember the book! I have a TON in my TBR pile and this just adds to it all. :o)

  13. Thx Ladystorm - I did check yours out, left a comment :o)

    Enjoy your reading!

  14. Faye - I have read Going Too Far, I read it pretty much right after I got the box early last week lol. Check out my review I just posted a little earlier today. :o)

    I'm looking forward to all that are in this IMM, but will be reading Crash Into Me soon. :o) It's somewhere at the top of my list already. :o)

  15. I loved "Prophecy of the Sisters" -- it is such an amazing book and I think Michelle Zink is someone to keep your eye on, she's just fantastic.

    Welcome to IMM! Happy reading!

  16. Katie - I'm looking forward to reading it, I just need to get through the Monstrumologist. I try not to read more then one book at a time, which isn't always easy lol.

My Ratings

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
4 Stars - I Really liked/Loved it.
3 Stars - I liked it/Was pretty good.
2 Stars - It was, eh okay.
1 Star - It just wasn't for me.
