Thank you as always Kristi for hosting IMM. Check out her website

I had a fab book week this week and got some really exciting things in the post.

Chime by Franny Billingsley (UK hardback)
I had no idea this was coming but it looks awesome - I have a bout 4 more books to read before I get to it but I can't wait.

Blood on my hands by Todd Strasser (UK paperback)
This is coming from Walker and looks amazing.

Long Lankin by Lindsay Barraclough (UK hardback)
The gorgeous lovely Rosi (who is even more lovely as she is a fellow UEA graduate) sent me a finished copy of this. It is gorgeous and you should all go and buy one now. The book is a debut novel and it is stunning, I was lucky enough to get a manuscript copy ages ago and loved it.

The Autumn Place Ondine by Ebony McKenna (UK paperback)
Another one that came by surprise - I think it is the second in a series and looks a little younger than what I usually read. Will have to hunt the first down and give it a shot

Divergent by Veronica Roth (UK proof)
There are no words to describe how unbelievably excited I am to get this!! Thank you so so so much HarperCollins

The Fool's girl by Celia Rees (UK paperback)
I have read Celia Rees before and I don't know why I haven't hunted more of her stuff down. This looks fab!

Please check out yesterday's bookcaseshow post while you're here by Kate from thatbookblog

Great books you got this week. They all look really interesting. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.
Great book haul! I got Chime too and although it's not the kind of book I would usually read, it does look awesome like you say. The Fool's Girl is really good, I want to get round to reading more Celia Rees soon as I have Sovay on my bookshelf. Enjoy :)
