Hey everyone! I didn't do an IMM last week because I only had about 3 books to show you, but now I have 8 to show you guys! Yay! No video this week, I took the video...but it was far too long and editing it was taking too long, so here is some good ol pics! (:

-To find out more about each book, click the title to take you to it's goodreads page-

Overprotected, I won from a giveaway that Jennifer Laurens the author hosted on her blog. I got a signed copy of her book, and some swag!
 Farsighted, I have been lucky enough to get to know the author of Farsighted, Emlyn and she is awesome! I am currently half way threw Farsighted and really like it, so Emlyn was nice enough to send me a final copy signed, along with some swag!
MV, this one I got from the ever so wonderful and beautiful Donna over at Book Passion for Life! (:

Fearless, The Fire Wars, and Stay With Me are all from my boyfriend Jimmy! He likes to buy me books, what can I say! (: I am SO excited for these 3 books, Fearless sounds AWESOME, although I can't find my version on goodreads, The Fire Wars I have been wanting for forever! And Stay With Me..idk when I will read that one, it seems lie it will be a tear jerker ):

Tiger's Voyage I went to the Colleen Houck signing and my momma got me two copies of Tiger's Voyage, why two you ask? because now I have an extra signed copy of Tiger's Curse, Tiger's Quest, and Tiger's Voyage..and you know what that means? An awesome US giveaway coming up with the first 3 books of the Tiger's Saga signed!

Here is some of the AWEOSME swag I got at Colleen Houck's book signing, I got a poster that has Ren and Kishan on it, and signed (yeeeee!). I got three little pins, one has the Tiger's Voyage Cover, one has the Tiger's Quest cover, and one has Rens face (that one is my fav!) Also got a bookmark (:

here is the rest of the awesome swag I got in the last two weeks! The majority of this is from Jennifer Laurens from her giveaway I won, there is also some stuff in there from Emlyn Chands for her book Farsighted (book mark and postcard on the right) ALSO I won a Descended by Blood bookmark, which is the red bookmark with my ever so sexy Mirko on it!

  • That is it for in my mailbox this week! Thank you Jennifer, Emlyn, Donna, Jimmy, and mom! (:

I've gotten to know Colleen Houck on GoodReads, and we are planning on reading each other's books. SQUEAL! She's also agreed to be interviewed for my blog. She is so inspirational.

That is a great assortment of books that you got. I wish my husband would randomly buy me books. All he ever does is yell at me about the books I do buy since I have so many already.
