Make sure to leave a link to your IMM in the comments, so I can see what goodies you got!  And if you've read any of my goodies, let me know what you thought of them. :)
And as always, In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren.

So....this is a super long IMM.  I mean, there was just an absolute shitton of books in my mailbox this week (and yes, all of them actually did come in my mailbox...)  If you want to watch the short version that shows just the books and none of the details and hoopla, there is a link you can click on about 50 seconds in that will take you to the short version.  :)

  1. oh man, I have some major When the Sea is Rising Red jealousy, I want a friend like yours ;)

    oooo The Secret Garden? I haven't heard of The Humming Room but it sounds seriously awesome.

    I really want to get into the Beka Cooper series too, especially since the 3rd one is coming out soon. September? October? Either way.

    Academy 7 is pretty decent, I bet you'll enjoy it. The world is neat.

    whew, got through all 15 minutes of Misty! haha, I love long vlogs actually :) I didn't do an IMM this week because I have at least two packages being held hostage over the weekend in my apartment office and I'm pissed because I wanna know what they are so...I was too frustrated to do one. hahaha.

  2. WOWZA! I am so jealous of When the Sea Was Rising Red and The Space Between -- both sound AMAZEBALLS! I hope you enjoy your megahaul!

  3. Allison - I would be pissed too. Not too pissed to do a video because I love chatting at you guys, but pissed.

    Casey. The Space Between IS AMAZEBALLS!! I finished it the other night, and HOLY MOLY I want a finished copy now. Can't wait to read WTSIRR, I hope it is just as amazeballs.

  4. I really liked reading Toads and Diamonds last year (I think it was last year) and I got Wish this week too!
    Great reads and happy reading!

  5. You've got a fantastic selection of books this week! :D

    Happy reading.

  19. wow your imm looks awesome! i hope you enjoy all of those books! i can't wait to read all the reviews of these books some of them look amazing!

  20. Had never heard of Bowery Girl. And when you said prostitution, I was intrigued. Aaaand I just ordered my bargain copy as well. Only 3 were left!

  21. Huge load you got there =) I hope you enjoy reading all of them!! Check out my IMM


  22. OMG, so many awesome books. The Humming Room by Ellen Potter is now added to my wishlist. Now where's my cookie? :)

  23. Cookies for everyone are on the way, so check your mailbox. If you don't get one... take that up with your postman. ;)

    Thanks for the comments and the love everyone!!

  24. You got so many awesome books this week! I am so jealous! At least I found some new books to keep an eye on ^_^.



  25. I got Echoes pretty much for the same reason you did. It was cheap for three books in one and sounded interesting. Honestly I didn't really like book one but it gets much better! So if book one seems bad don't give up!

  26. You got a nice set of books. I haven't heard of any of these before. They were all new to me.
    Happy Reading,

  31. I watch the video and now I want to read three more books ¬¬

    The humming book, Bake sale (the idea of a muffin is decorating muffins is hilarious hahaha) and Robot dreams. I hope to find them some day in the library because otherwise I am going to be broke.

    Are you better now? I hope so :)
