IMM #23 Awesome-st Sister Award Edition MRP #9

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

Wow another week without a vlog...this is getting out of hand hehe. But I haven't had the time alone at home to make one T_T I really like making vlogs. It really showcases at least a 10% of how much I freak out when I get books!
Anyway here's what I got this week


Seriously? How could I NOT show you this? hehehe
My dad sometimes surprises me. That. Is. All.

This is my very first Amazon purchase AND it was a freaking pre-oder! Can you believe it? I never believed there would be a day when I would be receiving in the mail something pre-ordered, I'm over the moon people! I'm so excited that it arrived here safe and sound! Even though I'm currently reading the series this book is for none other than my Sister! Who awarded me with the Awesomest Sister EVER not bad huh? ~sighs~ if I had had a camera to record her reaction when I gave it to her I think you'd freak out on me! It was worth the almost $30 it costed believe me! I wish I had more $$ so I could give away more books and buy more for that matter...but I'm getting there. Enough said.
-Lover Reborn by J. R. Ward -BDB #10 HB-

I think the picture shows all the swag I got
And most of them are SIGNED I was sooo excited...but you know the best part???

This was a gift! Definitely! I don't think there's anything better than THIS! someday I'll print some of my pictures too and send them to you too Kristina!!
It's too gorgeous to be true!

OMG! Another one for the collection! I'm so proud of the *-* 4 cards lol I have from different bloggers!!!!
I don't need to tell you where it was that I won this amazing swag from, just look at the card and I'll let it do it's mojo ;) -oh my sister's finger is in the way but the first word of the link is kristina-

My Reading Pile #9 

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'm happy! Yey!! I managed to finish books I said I was going to read!!! YEY for me! I finished My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent and posted my thoughts HERE. And also Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin -fans herself- guys that book...that book is NOT NOT NOT and NOT for the fainthearted, believe me BUT that review will have to wait until before October or sometime nearing it. 
And I'm finally advancing on my reading of the BDB books, that's good now, knowing that I managed to get my hands on the latest book!
On The Pile

My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent -SS #4-
After a traumatic read of the second book, the third one reminded me why I hold this series so close to my heart. I loved my reread of the third book I just couldn't help myself I just HAD to continue on with the flow of the story!
-I'm rereading the whole series for the SSRC hosted by Fiktshun you can still sign up by clicking on the challenge button on my sidebar-

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa -eGalley-
Really? Do I need to say more? T_T

I might be adding more to the pile but for now this is what I plan on getting read and reviewed :D
Netgalley Pile Adds:
iWell I got rejected for a galley I requested a while ago, but it's all good. I think I have enough books for review for my not-so-good-with-deadlines self besides my BLOGOVERSARY is coming and I'm thinking-with the help of a very very good neighbor-a one week celebration would be great...Any thoughts?? Leave them in the comments!
Well that's all for me but tell me,
