IMM: 6

Here are some of the books that came into the house this week. I say 'some' because I'm doing this in advance (before my birthday, which was yesterday!) and I'm hoping that I got at least one more book into the house this week (LINGER!!)

Need by Carrie Jones
Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Dead Girls' Dance by Rachel Caine
Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine
Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine
Bloodtide by Melvin Burgess
A Certain Age by Rebecca Ray

These are the books I picked up from charity shops. I'd seen Need around for awhile, heard good things about it. I quite like Laurie Halse Anderson, though not a big fan of historical fiction, but we'll see how it goes. Three more books in the Morganville Vampire series at a bargain price! And finally, I saw A Certain Age somewhere recently and it stuck in my brain. Bloodtide was a random book I picked up to go along with the BOGOF offer.

The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols
Major Crush by Jennifer Echols
Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott
Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott

Some great swaps this week. Jennifer Echols and Elizabeth Scott are two of my favourite YA authors at the moment. I was so excited about these books that I've already read The Ex Games and Something, Maybe! Really liked them both!

From Somalia With Love by Na'ima B. Robert
Boy vs Girl by Na'ima B. Robert
Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lyn Barnes

And finally, here are some books sent to me via the publishers. The two Na'ima B Robert books were sent by Frances Lincoln (thank you!) and I've already posted a review of Boy vs Girl here. Raised By Wolves was won in a giveaway by Wondrous Reads and sent from Quercus (thanks to you both!)

Have you read any of these books? What books arrived in your house this week?


  1. Ohhh heck. Need to attack you wishlist again :( I cant keep up with you :( Stop reading so fast.
    Grat book week plus the awesome Linger. Enjoy :D

  2. The only one of those I've read is Chains. I'm not crazy about historical fiction set in America myself, but I thought I'd give it a chance because it was Laurie Halse Anderson. Turns out, it's really really good. I hope you like it as much as I did!

  3. Happy belated birthday and happy reading!
