IMM is hosted by the lovely Kristi over at The Story Siren as a chance to share the books we've received or bought over the past week.
Kristi, I'm sure you all know, is a massive supportive, positive presence in the book blogging world. And now she's asking for help. On Friday she shared the news on twitter that her 6 year old cousin Kaylea had been diagnosed with leukimia. Understandably this has shocked their whole family. Kristi is asking for any support that could be offered, a card, a book or a monetary donation if possible. You may well have seen the post already anyway, but I want to add it in here to help make sure it's seen. I'm keeping them all in my prayers right now.
This week I got:
The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell - Goodreads
I'll be honest here and state that this is one which sounds pretty good, but is outside my usual tastes. Won't be reading it for a couple weeks, but I'm curious to find out if I get on with it or not.
Thanks to NetGalley
Once Bitten, Twice Shy by Jennifer Rardin - Goodreads
Belated Christmas present from one of my best friends! Thanks hun :) <3
The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa [The Iron Fey #3] - Goodreads // review - I'm so in love with this series now and TIQ is just...wow!! I'm so desperate for The Iron Knight! And for someone who's not a pink girl, I love this cover!
My Soul To Save by Rachel Vincent [Soul Screamers #2] (UK version) - Goodreads - I love the Soul Screamers series and I'm totally in love with these UK covers, so of course I'm collecting them despite having the US ones already!! Go read this series if you haven't yet.
Flash Burnout by L. K. Madigan - Goodreads
The Mermaid's Mirror by L. K. Madigan - Goodreads - A couple weeks back my twitter feed was suddenly full of retweets to a post from Lisa where she shared, very eloquently, her very hard news that she has stage IV cancer. So aside from sending her and her family my thoughts and prayers, I did the only other thing I could to support her, and bought her books just as soon as I had the spare money to do so. Hoping to read both of them very soon.
