  1. The Circle books (the original four) are my favourite Pierce novels! Granted I'm biased since they're the ones that introduced me to her amazing writing.
    Amazing books this week and I hope that you enjoy them all - even the one with the 'chesticles'.
    Happy reading!

    (my IMM will be up in 24 hours - http://theladycriticslibrary.blogspot.com/ if you want to check it out then!)

  2. Thanks! Yeah, mine's up early because I wasn't quite ready to post a review (cause I've been reading books rather than writing about them. Oops...)

  3. Ahh so much Tamora Pierce love. I'm very happy that you got my package. I have Shadow Kiss in my TBR but still need to read it. And Clockwork Angel is good, I've heard it's 10x better than her other books. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

  4. I'm so looking forward to the Tamara Pierce event! Her's was probably one of the first fantasy series I ever read. Her books are synonymous with my childhood. I should read those again...

    Wow! You got a lot of books! It makes me want to run over to my local Borders and load up on books. I can't wait for Sweetly. I just put in my preorder today, so I'm eagerly awaiting your review.

    I don't usually do IMM posts unless I got loads of stuff (which is rarely). This week, I got Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon, Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay, Aloha from Hell by Richard Kadrey, and Hellbent by Cherie Priest.

  5. I feel the same way about City of Bones. There is something that will keep me reading for now, but I'm not sure if it's for me. I'm trying to be optimistic. I don't understand why everybody loves Jace so much. Maybe that will change with book 2.

    Epic was definitely the right word for this. A lot of great books. Liesl & Po looks beautiful and sounds great. I haven't read anything by Meg Cabot either, but I want Abandon to the first book I read. Nothing for me this week. Happy reading :-)

  6. Liz, someone else said it was better too, but from everyone else I know who doesn't like the books, they've said it's worse. Or that it's so much of the same bad habits that you just want to explode.

    Titania: I have a soft spot for the Alanna series (Song of the Lioness) because it was my first Pierce AND my first fantasy. I fell in love with them and the world, and I remember having the biggest crush on George.
    I'm really looking forward to Carrier of the Mark, so I'm a little jealous of you there. ;)

    SP: I don't get Jace either. People are OBSESSED with him, but he's an ass.

  7. wow so many good books! I can't wait to receive this side of the grave, and clockwork angel is so good!! Hope you enjoy everything

  8. Hey!

    That is a pretty impressive IMM. I'm quite jealous. Hope you enjoy Clockwork Angel, it's one of my favourite books. Going to a Cassandra Clare signing in October, so excited.

    Sabriel is a really good too, I was a little obsessed with it a while ago.

    Great blog.

    New follower.


  9. Yay for Tamora Pierce! Personally I prefer some of the Tortall books, but the Circle of Magic series is enjoyable too. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for that Tamora Pierce event you're planning! :)

  10. Great in my mailbox! I'm looking forward to reading sweetly! Happy reading!

  11. That's a huge amount of books! Happy Reading :)

    New follower too!

    Hippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My!

  12. Yay for Tamora Pierce indeed, Tammy!

    And thanks, Mandie! Sweetly is great so far; I had to put it on pause for a different review book, but I can't wait to get back to it!

  13. Great set! So cool that you got Liesl & Po. I so want to read it. And I also keep meaning to read Tamora Pierce.
    My IMM

  14. Wow, so many great books listed this week!! Enjoy! :)

  15. Wow, that is quite the book haul for this week! I'm so sad Borders is closing, but I can't help but love the closing sales still :(

    I'm just about to start Frostbite in the VA series, I can't wait to get into it!

    Thanks for the vlog, you can see what I got this week at the link below! Would love if you stopped by :)

    Lea @ LC's Adventures in Libraryland

  16. Wow, so many books! I'm definitely the most jealous of Sweetly, I can't wait to get a copy of that!

    ComaCalm's IMM

  17. Tamora Pierce, Garth Nix, Eoin Colfer... Some of my favourite authors ever and a few I definitely want to try. Massive green eyes of jealousy appearing... Definitely new follower!

    Here's what's on my Wishlist Diet.

  18. You got some great books this week!! Love Karen Marie Moning!!! Hope you enjoy! =)

  19. You got a nice list of books this week in your mailbox. I really enjoyed the Fever series.
    Book Sniffers Anonymous

  20. Wow, nice haul! I've been meaning to read the rest of Cassandra Clare's books.. I read the first one (City of.. Bones is it?)

    Here's my IMM! http://wp.me/pAblM-lB

  21. Wow. Thats a lot. Sweetly and Liesl and Po looks good. I love Clockwork Angel, The Last Olympian and This Side of the Grave (the others in the series anyway. Not read that far yet.)
    Enjoy them all!
    Nina @ Death Books and Tea

  22. That is a huge list. Thanks for sharing your video. Isn't the cover of Sweetly interesting?

  23. Sweetly, Dreamfever, and Clockwork Angel?! Such a beast IMM!

    My Mailbox :)

  24. With To Tame a Highland Warrior, you can start with book 2, but once you get to book 4 you need to read them in order. They all interlink in someway or another.

    I love KMM's books, but To tame a highland Warrior is my least favorite of the highlander series.

    I am like you in the fact that the tagline for that book, makes me move on and I don't normally read romance like that, but it was recommended by a friends mom who has never steered me wrong on a book recommendation.

    In the highlander series books 3,4,5,and 7 are the best Dark Highlander made me laugh I love the heroin in that one.

    My imm is up as well.

  25. Awesome haul in your mailbox!! Looks like some great books there! Love Jackson Pearce's work! :]

    Nora, The Bookery

  26. Whoa! Lots of good stuff here. I was excited to see Sara Shepard in your pile...love her!

  27. "I love KMM's books, but To tame a highland Warrior is my least favorite of the highlander series." <---- Well, of course it is, because that's the one I grabbed. ;)

  28. I've never read one of Pierce's books, but they all sound really good. So many books!!!

    Check out our Mailbox at Book Sake.

  29. That's an impressive IMM! I've always wanted to read The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood. Hope you enjoy reading your books! :)

  30. Awesome mailbox! I loved Abandon! Happy Reading!


  31. Awesome mailbox! You sure got a lot of books lately. Abandon and Dreamfever are no my wishlist.

    Take a look at what's in my mailbox!

  32. Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier :)
    Wow, that's an awesome IMM! You'll love The Last Olympian. Especially jealous of Clockwork Angel, Abandon and Sweetly - enjoy!

  33. I still can't believe you haven't read Sisters Red yet!! It's awesome! I liked Sweetly, but no where near as much as I loved SR. It's definitely the stronger of the two stories... You so need to read it! :)

  34. Wow so many that i've been hoping to read!!! Have fun reading! Here's my IMM



Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
