Wow, you guys! I completely missed posting last weeks' IMM, sorry about that! I've been on vacation! But well...the magic stops on tuesday.
I had originally recorded a vlog but after I went and bought other books so...I KNOW I'll take forever to show them to you via video so I'm going with pictures today!
Anyway, 2 weeks worth of books! YEY!
-Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby -ARC-
Won it over @Page Turners Blog, I actually hadn't even noticed it was an ARC until I had it in my hands!
And OMG! I can't believe I won it! It was US only but one AWESOME person ~clears throat, Elena~ well...I have it now so no explaining needed :D I'm so excited to read this! I mean PHOTOGRAPHY + LOVE STORY = PERFECTION to me! Thanks so much to PTB & Elena!!!
-Ascending into Euphoria, A Collection of Poetry by Tiffany Tinney
Tiffany T_T Thanks so much for this! I'm reading them one by one at night along with my lil sis! It's my very first poetry book EVER :D
And so far so good!
You know I post a lot on my facebook page and more than a couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of an actual bookstore here in my country...let's just say...it looks more like the bookshelves of most of you than a bookstore, if you want to take a look at it click HERE. LOL I KNOW right? But well, that one is NOT the one where I usually buy my books so no worries :D the one I go to is slightly bigger.
-Pure by Julianna Baggott -PB-
-Graceling by Kristin Cashore -Graceling Realm #1, PB-
-Fire by Kristin Cashore -Graceling Realm #2, PB-
-Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris -Sookie Stackhouse #1, PB-
~I bought this solely based on Rachel's @Fiktshun After Dark thoughts and after thoroughly trying NOT to notice how much she loves this...um...Eric? hehehe
-Night Rising by Chris Marie Green -Vampire Babylon #1, PB-
OHMYCLOUD you guys!! I can't believe that Graceling-Fire-Pure and Dead Until Dark are actually here!! In a bookstore in my country! I reached my nirvana and heaven when I found out!!! I think I even cried a little!! I'm so unbelievably happy that I have them now! And I can't wait to read them all!!
-Ilusiones Tras Las Rejas by Belén Téllez -PB-
This one is for my mom!! She LOVES memoirs or biographical books or real-life-base-on-reality kinds of books, so I got her this one!
Translated is, Illusions Behind Bars and it's about an Argentinian model that got sent to jail for 'drugs' and her time spent there in jail until she got released 2 years later...
For My Sis
-Cenas Con Estilo & Recetas de la Abuela -Chef Express-
As many of you know my Sis Kat, is in Cooking School or whatever you guys call it hehehe And I got these mini books for her!
Translating the tittles->
-left* Dinners With Style
-right* Grandma's Recipes
I'm hoping to get to taste any of the recipes in there SOON!
I seldom showcase the eBooks I get each week but I think this time I'll have to because they were BOTH gifted to me from my, as I call them, Book Angels *-*
-Scorched Skies by Samantha Young -Fire Spirits #2-
Already read and reviewed this one->HERE *-* please check these books out ASAP
-Because of Low by Abbi Glines
Nat! *-* I don't know how or when you knew I wanted Abbi's book T_T
Rachel, Nat...How can I show you guys how grateful I am to both of you?? NEVER would I have imagined possible for people as good as you to even exist! I'm still having trouble getting around the fact of how much you BOTH give out to the reader/blogger community!
I simply love you both. I can't think of a good enough thank you...
My Reading Pile #8
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:
This is getting completely ridiculous and embarrassing! I haven't been a good girl at all! I haven't read the books I promised myself I would. I'm a bad person!~pun intended Rachel *-* lol But HEY! I AM reading so that still counts. Right?
The ONLY book I KNOW for SURE I'll be reading and finishing this week is My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent for the SSRC-there's still time to join! look for the link on the right sidebar!!!!-
But as you can see, I'm also currently reading Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin I'm almost DONE! I think I never gush enough about the first book, Ashfall you can check my review HERE, but well since the author told me it was available on Netgalley I HAD to go and grab it...which takes us to...
Netgalley Pile Adds:
I was AGAIN a bad girl and went roaming on Netgalley and requested, I think, 4 or 5 or maybe 7 books but who's counting? hehehe and so far I've been approved for 2 Ashen Winter-as you can obviously see above and The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa...can someone join me on my screaming fit? Oh Clouds...I screamed like someone was going to take away my books or something when I got the email saying I could go and download my galley! I'm so happy it still doesn't feel real! Add to all this the fact that I got added to the auto-approve list of none other than Tanglewood Press which is Ashfall's publisher :D
Beautiful People, I'm OVER the MOON.
On other news...*-* I found out I am the worst person in the whole world :D hehehe joking...but O_O SHE knows what I'm talking about and OF COURSE I had to post it here somehow! hehehehe
That's it for me!
