IMM 53

I had it in my head that I had a really quiet book week this week but I didn't at all when I think about it.

I got ...



Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver (UK Proof copy)
This is a lot younger than what I normally read but looks so cute (and is written by such an awesome author) that I'll probably give it a go anyways.

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton (UK paperback)
A huge thanks to Clover for this one. It looks ace.

Clash by Colin Mulhern (Signed UK paperback)
I couldn't make an event last week which Non from Catnip invited me to so she picked me up this bad boy - complete with signed dedication. I love having signed copies of books I love so I was very excited to get this through the post. Non was already one of my favourite booky people but this is awesome on a whole new level.

We can be heroes by Catherine Bruton (UK paperback)
This is a debut novel which I am excited to read - the author will be popping by the blog at some point soon to do a bookcase showcase post.

Bumped by Megan McCafferty (UK paperback)
I've been looking forward to this for ages, despite hearing mixed reviews. Will get to it soon.

Thank you to all my lovely commenters this week. Sorry I have been a bit AWOL. I am in the middle of exam marking season (having done close to 500 this week). I do appreciate every comment and will return the favour shortly!

Oh I really enjoyed Bumped--the lingo is the best part! And the Darkness Becomes Her cover is lovely. Not a quiet week at all!

Lovely haul this week! I love the cover of Darkness Becomes Her. Very different from the one in the U.S. I find myself really enjoying the covers of books overseas compared to here.

<3 Happy Reading!

Lots of wonderful books, great IMM. I've got a copy of Bumped that needs reading too. I'm really hoping that I like it but the negative things I've heard about it are all things that I also dislike sooo we'll have to see.

Happy reading :)
