IMM #18 & MRP #6

IMM is hosted by The Story Siren I looove love her blog! So you really should check it out!

Yey! Got a book in the mail this week!
I'm so excited because this book is completely different from any other book I've ever read but I knew my mom would love it. And even though she doesn't know much english I know that she would appreciate me telling her the story...Yes, she LOVES to hear from the books I read. Funny, she's into hearing the YA stories I read but not actually into reading them. LOL My mom's special!
Anyway, enough with the rambling...
Here's the book I got this week!

Trieste by Dasa Drndic
Goodreads doesn't have a description or blurb from the book, but I know it has a lot of history and war in it...
I have to thank Misty from Bookaholics Book Club she's the one that got this book in her mail box a couple of months ago and said that since it wasn't her kind of read she'd give it to whoever wanted it...So *_________* know the rest.
It's here Misty! Thank you so very very much! I LOOOOOVE the book jacket like a lot!
I can't wait for you to post your next IMM! 

My Reading Pile #6

My reading pile is an idea created by Fiktshun in which you share what your reads for the week are or well the wishful reads-rereads-rerereads and well you get the hint. Check her blog out you know I'm a devoted stalker, I mean, follower ;)

MRP progress & status:
I've been sick, really really sick. So, of course I wasn't going to get to read whatever books I said I wanted to read on my last MRP. 
Okay, I admit I DID finish The BDB book #4 & #5 (Lover Revealed & Lover Unbound respectively) they're quite addictive...But I couldn't even finish the first page of My Soul To Save...Time's running out for me to get the reading done in time for the SSRC~left sidebar.~

So, My Soul to Save is still on the pile and joining it will be:

Lover Enshrined by J.R. Ward -BDB #6-
~I've already started this one...almost halfway through it now.~

I'm not completely healthy yet but I'm really hoping I do get to finish the Soul Screamers read this week.

Netgalley Pile Adds:
Wow, I completely broke my Netgalley ban this week. Yesterday I saw that one book I'm really looking forward to read was over NG so...Off I went and sent a request. 
The book's Something Like Normal by Trish Doller. I couldn't help myself and went through a little bit of their catalog's new adds and ended up requesting one promo book Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, which I only even thought about reading because Rachel @My Reading Pile had added it to her pile -_- I stink, I know...And I also got approved for Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown. Enough review books, for now.
I'm not going to fool myself and believe I'll get approved for Trish's book but I really really am crossing my fingers...I've wanted that book for so long...I really can't wait for it's release!
That's it for me ^_^

What did YOU guys get in your mail box this week?
What are YOU guys reading this week?


  1. One day I will read the JR Ward books but I don't have the time to read them right now. I have done well at staying away from netgalley, I Have gotten a few books periodically over the last few months but not too many.

    1. awww and when you do read the books I'll be stalking silently behind you and see your reactions to each and every single on of them :D
      I haven't gotten many books on NG...I think I have 4... ^_^
      thanks for stopping by!

  2. Oh Alba, I'm sorry you were so sick, but I really hope you'll feel better very soon!!!

    I didn't get any books this week, but that's ok, since I have too many books on my pile as it is already. ;) This week I'm hoping to finish Lauren Oliver's "Before I Fall" (which I love already!) and then it'll be time for "MSTSave". I did read "Niederwald" but I haven't read a single word of "MSTSave" yet. I'm cutting it pretty close this month as well. *lol*

    1. So sick T_T it kind of got worse today...maybe because I went out yesterday... I hope so too! thanks!

      T______T lol OMG! I don't even own any Lauren Oliver book! Hope you enjoy the ending... hehehehe
      Niederwald! O___O
      I just really hope I can read MSTSave *___* don't want to miss a book in the corresponding month :D

      Thank you so much for stopping by Ina!

    2. Yeah, me neither, I do not want to miss the "deadline" for "MSTSave". "Fearless" might have to wait until next time, because I'm not sure I'll be able to write three reviews/thoughts - though I did start my "Niederwald" earlier today, I just need to finish it.

      I don't own a Lauren Oliver book either. I had just heard so many great things about her books, that when I saw it at the library I had to pick it up. I haven't regretted it yet. :)

    3. For a moment I didn't know what Niederwald was! lol I don't have the book with that story in it :/ I've just read Fearless :D
      The deadlines!! *___* I have to work on my review of Fearless and MSTSave this month :D

      argh...the ever amazing libraries *-* one day if I can I'll build one here so kids and YA and everyone can get their fill of's much needed here ^_^

    4. Well, Alba, I finished "Before I Fall" at 3am this morning, and to be honest, no, I did not like the ending. Even though I knew it was coming, I was still hoping for a different ending. *sigh* I'll really have to think about it before I can write my review. *bigsigh* Anyway, hope you're feeling even better today! :)

    5. I knew it! I've been told by many that the ending is a killer one and that most aren't happy with it!
      T___T My right arm is killing me! But overall I'm better!

    6. What happened? Did you do sports and injure yourself???

      Honestly, I'm thinking if I'd known how the book ends, I probably wouldn't have read it. I loved the first 3/4s of it, and then... *sigh*

    7. I seriously have no 2 years ago I got the same thing and they told me it was because of stress...and gave me some muscle relaxing thing...I think I'll have to take it again...

      Lol that's why I've been wary of getting Before I Fall...they've told me I won't like the ending...because I'm a true believer of Happily Ever After!

  3. Alba! U are the 2nd Alba I have ever met & guess what? The 1st is my next door neighbor & my BFF. She rocks, so that's good cuz you're an Alba so u must be cool too!
    Why were u on a NG ban?
    I got What Lies beneath too from NG, I am waiting to be approved for The Raft. I hope I get it!
    I wanna check out that MRP meme. I like Fiktshuns blog too.
    Hope ur feeling better now :) I was soo sick the other night & guess what? It was from bad Raisin Bran! I know, crazy huh?
    Have a great week <3
    MY IMM

    1. ~SCORE!~ Second Alba is still good, hope so. That's so cool! that she's your BFF!!
      I was on a ban because I don't deal well with deadlines and since I'm international publishers don't send me books when I discovered NG over a year ago I went overboard and requested over 50 books! Got approved for most of them and ended up reading just like 5...I felt too guilty I tried first not to request too much...but then I got rejected too many times...and sometimes I felt bad...because it was either...I didn't have a blog...~back then I didn't just had my facebook page and tumblr and goodreads~ or because of where I finally I just wanted to not request there AT ALL...

      YES!! Fiktshun's one of the 2 only blogs I stalk should check it out! Definitely! :D
      Sadly...I kind of feel bad again...but really hope to get better :)
      ~gasps~ I literally have to know what that even means! ~sorry my first language isn't english~
      And thank you so much for your comment and stopping by!
      You rocked my entire MONTH!

  4. Aww, that's cool she lets you read to her! My mom would never have the patience to even listen to me reading a book in Swedish, let alone English! Lol. It looks interesting though. o:

    Also, it sucks you've been real sick :( I hope you'll get completely well quickly (if you haven't already!!)

    And I love BDB, although I've only read the first three so far! I so need to get back to ittt.

  5. Lol, she loves it...specially if we're on our front yard(we kind of live on a mountain so to speak, so it's always windy and fresh) hahaha she doesn't like me reading to her in english because she can't speak it:D

    Yes, I've been and still am T_T. Thanks though

    BDB FTW!!! I still haven't read the guide completely but you definitely MUST read the rest! I've fallen in love with each one of the stories.
    Thank you for stopping by!

  6. Happy to see it arrived safely, enjoy! :)

    1. happy to see you around here!!
      And thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuu
