Okay now I know why you got two copies :P How nice!

They all look so pretty and I'm super SUPER excited to get them books. Thank you so much lovely! :) :)

Anna looks fantastic, I want it but still can't get it here yet. Stupid TBD. Oh and you know The Demon King only cost me like £2.81 (PEANUTS, lol) don't feel like you have to keep it if you don't like the cover. :)

Great week hun!! :)

Lesley said...

I haven't seen Circle 9 I might need to check that one out. It looks like you had a great week Haley.

Yiota said...

I like how you have most of them twice!
Demon King is just perfect! Hope you like it:)

Great books for you this week. :) I actually got a copy of Anna Dressed in Blood, too, and can't wait to start it. And I'm waiting for my copy of Fateful which should arrive next week.
All of these look really good, so I hope you enjoy them.

Have a lovely week,

I've read the beautiful dead series, the first book is alright, the rest were a bit disappointing to be honest, they were all the same.
I'll definitely be entering the Anna giveaway, I want that book so bad lol
I'm unsure about whether I want to get fateful, I did like the evernight series but I've heard mixed things about this one, I expect I'll probably end up getting it one day lol

Here's my IMM

Nice haul :)) Fateful is supposed to be really good, and Walk of the Spirits looks great! I've got Anna too, but haven't read it yet. Enjoy your books!

Angel (Mermaid Vision Books) said...

I should be getting ANNA in my mailbox soon and I can't wait! What's Ondine about?


Hayley said...

Great IMM!! :D I went to buy fateful in hardcover yesterday but it seems like in Canada we only have paperbacks! :/ Oh well, hope you enjoy it, it's an amazing book.

Bex said...

Anna Dressed in Blood is one of my favorite books from this year! Absolutely loved it!

Christie (Neliss) said...

They all seem to be good (and they also look good). I wanna read Anna.^^ Will the giveaway be international? Sorry, if you mentioned it...

Anna @ Literary Exploration said...

Oh I can't wait to read Anna dressed in blood!
Check out my IMM

SweetMarie83 said...

Wow, that's a lot of books! I have a few of these on my list, but I actually hadn't heard of quite a few of them, so I'll have to check those out. I've been reading two books at a time lately too, one hard copy and one ebook on my computer. I usually don't like having 2 books on the go, but it's kind of faster that way I think. Happy reading Haley! :-)

I have read Walk of the Spirits, It is really good :) I have the second in the series reviewed on my blog but that wouldn't be helpful to book 1. I am looking forward to book 3 (which I hope there will be a third one) I bought the Demon King awhile ago, love the US version better too, haven't had a chance to read it though. The Ondine books are cute but they felt more like a primary school read to me.

Awesome titles!!!! I want to read Anna but i dislike scary books so I keep switching back and forth between the want and not =/ Ill be back to read your review!

Jennie said...

Awesome IMM! Fateful and Anna Dressed in Blood sound so good. I can't wait to read them! Hope you enjoy all your new books!
