Thank you Kristi for hosting IMM
I didn't think I'd have anything to show you this weekend as no books had arrived by Thursday morning for me. The postman must have been running late because when I got home after work I had all of these ...

The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen (UK paperback)
Someone like you by Sarah Dessen (UK paperback)
I found these on Readitswapit earlier in the week. After reading the Jenny Han books last week I am really in the mood for some summery books and these fit the bill nicely.
White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick (UK paperback)
I haven't read much Marcus Sedgwick but the little I have read of his I have enjoyed - looking forward to this one!

Tenth grade bleeds by Heather Brewer (UK paperback)
 I need to read the second book before I read this one. I loved the first one!

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (US paperback)
Another readitswapit find. I love this cover more than the UK one so looking forward to get started on it soon.

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton (UK proof)
This book is going to be one those who love paranormal romance are going to devour! My review is coming soon.

The hunting ground by Cliff McNish (UK paperback)
This one looks really creepy.

The Radleys by Matthew Haig (UK paperback)
I can't wait for this - a different take on vampires! Thank you Clover for sending me fab stuff as always.

The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong (UK paperback)
The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong (UK paperback)
I bought these after really enjoying the first one in the series!

The Book of Fairies by Enid Blytonn (UK hardback)
It has taken me over 20 years to find a copy of this. I have been collecting this series since I was about six and have pretty mcuh read them all cover to cover in the meantime. This was the only one I didn't have after spending years scouring secondhand book shops and carboot slaes trying to find one. Yay!!

The betrayal of Natalie Hargrove (UK paperback)
I wanted a finished copy of this as I only had a flimsy proof of it. Very cruel intentions - loved it!

Thank you to everyone who sent me books this week

Another vote for the Kelley Armstrong's - love that series!
Love Wintergirls, so so good!
I am going to give Sarah Dessen another try too, I read one earlier this year and wasn't impressed but I have been told that I might enjoy some others more. I didnt start with the best! x
Ooh, I really want to read The Radleys. Hope you enjoy it!

I like Cliff Mcnish. I liked the Doomspell books.
Oh I love Sarah Dessen. And I really like White Crow so I really hope you enjoy all three of those. And The Radleys. Poor book has been sat on my shelves for ages unloved.
