IMM

photo from so funny, thanks!




IMM is a meme hosted by The Story Siren. The meme is on vacation, but I promised in my New Year's Rezzies to start posting about the books I have received, so here we go! UPDATE: Apparently, IMM is back in action. No one tells me anything. Go here. Read, learn, link up.
I won a giveaway on Michelle's blog, and with the 15 dollar gift cert. I was able to pick up:
XVI by Karr
The Water Wars by Stracher


Next I bought:
Personal Demons by Desrochers
Dogsled Dreams by Johnson

and preordered a whole bunch more.

From the library:
The Iron Fey series (book one and two)
And, bum bum bum, the motherload in egalleys for review:
Red Glove by Black
Cryers Cross by McMann
Haven by Cook
Stay by Caletti

I bought both of those too w/a giftcard I got from the public librarians I work with. :)

Oh - I'm not having a giveaway... lol

And what egalley are you using to get those books? Just NetGalley?

I sent a request to them. I did it through this page - http://www.galleygrab.com/?asset_url=9781442411760 and signed up as a librarian. It said to give it a couple days. If I don't hear anything Tuesday I'll email. :)

Its okay if you thought I was having a giveaway. Just wanted to let you know I wasn't. lol :)

I bet you can do 100+ again! If I would quit watching so much tv I would get a lot more read. I'm going to try to finish Hexbound tonight. It's pretty good! :)

I want to read Cryer's Cross. I hope they let me in! I have 160+ followers so that should help, right?

Oh don't tell me that about Matched! I have it and am SO EXCITED to read it!

I preordered Across the Universe too. Mine was shipped yesterday I think, maybe it will be here Monday? Doubt it but I'm very excited to read it too. I've heard such great things about it.

I'm wanting to go to BEA SO BAD. My husband doesn't want me to go w/ppl I don't know. So I'm trying to get some friends to go. We shall see I guess.

Yeah, I understand where he is coming from too - unfortunately. :P

I've never had to write a bad review. If I don't like a book I usually stop reading it. I saw on another blog that she would compile a list of books she didn't like and then would link back to good reviews about the book. I thought that was a good idea. It's all a matter of opinion, ya know? I think if I ever did write a bad one I might do something like that.
