A Late IMM

Hey guys! I got up early, but my friend isn't coming by for another hour or so for ALA- Monday morning traffic in Chicago sux, so we're leaving a bit later than I'd like, but oh well. I'm sure we'll still get a ton of free books.

So here I am doing my late IMM. I have some pictures, hopefully... (if they're on my computer...).

So here's what I got this week:

I got a package from Egmont with: (forgot to download pic and am feeling lazy)
Violet Wings

I won a copy of Fade to Blue by Sean Beaudoin from Dirty Pages. Thanks! It looks awesome.

I also finally earned my first free book - The 13th Reality from YA Book Central, which author Kimberly Pauley runs - I met her at ALA and she's great! She also lives in my hometown. If you have not heard of this website, all you do is submit reader reviews and when you get to 15, you get a free book! She has a list of books she has in the prize bucket. Check it out.

I also won an ARC copy of Ice by Sarah Beth Durst on her website - so cool! So she wrote me a little note on the front and then signed it inside. I can't wait to read this one!

I also stopped by my parents real briefly yesterday morning to pick up a signed copy of Wicked Will, sent by the author when I won her contest of searching for Shakespeare quotes in the contest blog. Thank you Bailey MacDonald for sending me your awesome looking book!

And I got something in the mail, that is NOT a book, but just as exciting:

David Rio Tiger Spice Chai - mmmm 3 pounds of yumminess. :) I am in love with this chai mix.

Well thanks for tuning in! Hopefully, I'll have some energy to go through other ppl's IMMs later today.


  1. Ice looks fabulous. Well done on your wins.

  2. The cover of Ice is very pretty, I like the colors a lot. Enjoy your books.


  3. Your last 3 posts have me green with envy! LOL!! What awesome hauls you have had! Congratulations!

  4. Aaah! You have Ice! I love East of the Sun and West of the Moon so I can't wait to read this.

  5. Ooooh some great books!! I really want to read Ice and I can't wait to see what you think of Candor =)

    P.S. I have an award for you here:


Leave some love!
