Hey guys so last week I didn't do an IMM cause I had only 1 book, but this week I have 5 so go ahead and take a look! (: You may notice I am very bouncy, and talk really fast, I am insanely tired and hyper when I did this, so that is a horrible combo! HA (:

Books Mentioned (links):

Carrier of the Mark's Review: here

EBooks for review:

Thank you Jimmy, Donna, Emily, HarperTeen, Belle, and Taryn! (:

What did you get in your mailbox ?! Leave links (:

I loved, loved, loved The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. You really need to read this one soon! :) And I enjoyed The Name of the Star as well, so I hope you'll like this one as well.
Last week I got Cicada as well and I can't wait to start reading it, because it sounds really great. And I'm reading Carrier of the Mark at the moment. :)

Have a lovely week,

Reading Away The Days said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I know what you mean about the Cold Kiss cover I love it! I so want to read Carrier of the mark! I got the name of the star last week. I am thinkin I prefer the US cover to the UK one :) Happy Reading!

Lalaine said...

HI great haul for the last week, sorry if it took me ages to get to your IMM, anyway I really loved that CICADA book that cover is gorgeous.
Loved the The UNbecoming its my favorite! Didnt like the Carrier of the Mark though, I started few pages and decided It wasnt for me. the events were too abrupt i couldnt dig it. :) anyway its just me.

Hope your enjoying all these books. Thanks for checkingout my IMM

I'm playing catch-up, so I'm late commenting, but better late than never right? lol I missed you last week but figured it was because of your book buying ban. Glad you did one this week! I have 2 favorite bloggers who do videos and you're one of them. :-) I'm so jealous about The Name of the Star, it's at the top of my wish list and EVERYONE seems to have it but me! Carrier of the Mark, too. I have all of these on my TBR list...I'd never heard of Want to Go Private before, but it sounds good, so I added it, too!
