Hey everyone! So if your my friend on facebook, you might had noticed I said I was going to do my IMM on video this week, well I went out and bought a new webcam...and attempted to do an IMM video about 654546 times, and each time I uploaded it to Youtube, it would end up choppy, or the sound would go away, SO I am going to try again next week and hopefully I will have more time to get it all figured out !(: ANYWAYS,  I got some awesome books last week, and here they are.

Books I bought:
Lipstick apology by Jennifer Jabaley
Timeless by Alexandra Monir
Graceling by Kristin Cashore (SO EXCITED!!)
The Lost Queen (Faerie Path #2) by Frewin Jones
Sea by Heidi R. Kling
Blood and Flowers by Penny Blubaugh
Zombies VS Unicorns by Various Authors

Books I got for review:
Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari
Blood Wounds by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Book I got as gift:
Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine.
Thank you Donna from Book Passion For Life!!! Donna is the first one to get me a book from my RAK wishlist, and since she is super awesome she sent me the UK version instead of the US one (the link goes to the US version). The UK version, has a much prettier cover, is hardback, and comes with the first 3 books instead of just the first 2!! Thank you thank you thank you Donna!! You are such a sweetheart(:

For you guys I bought Everlasting (Immortals #6) by Alyson Noel, this book is signed, and will also come with some swag items.- This giveaway I will be posting in the next couple weeks, it will be US only.
I also bought Tiger's Curse (book 1) & Tiger's Quest (book 2) these are both signed and hardback, and wil come with some Tiger's Curse bookmarks.- This giveaway will be posted probably sometime in September.
