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.

  1. Great Im! Such amazing books :D And The Pearl of the Soul of the World is an awesome title!!!

  2. Ha! "Michigan's not f'in around."

    Love your lipstick.

    I started clapping happily when you showed The Night Circus. I can't wait to see what you think of it.

  3. Drink, Slay, Love has such an interesting premise.

  4. So freaking jealous that you have The Nigh Circus! I want to get that one SO BAD!

  5. -DSL is a pretty perfect cover :)

    -You are so cute and funny! I love how you match DSL. LOL

    -Michigan is not f*cking around? LOL

    -Ooooo Night Circus! That is a hot spine.

    -FAB week!

    -A Swift Pure Cry is a striking title :)

    -With your love of covers, when are we going to see your shelves? I'm not sure if you have before but it's definitely time for an updated view :)

  6. EVERYONE has been asking for a bookshelf tour! Let's just say, I just bought 2 new bookcases, and have 2 more (at least) to buy, and then some serious arranging, and THEN you will see it in all of it's maniacal glory... lol

  7. You're a bit crazy, but in a good way...I think! Fantastic books this week. I do love that cover for Drink, Slay, Love. Happy Reading!

  8. You should read "Falling for Hamlet" by Michelle Ray.

    I LOVE it!

    It's a modern re-telling of Hamlet from Ophelia's POV with the twist of what if she didn't die.

  9. That seems like a lot of books!

    I love the cover/title of Drink Slay Love, but I didn't really know what it was about - might have to check that out sometime.

    The Night Circus looks beautiful! Such a lovely colour!
    I've read one Siobhan Dowd book, and to be honest I didn't really like it, but maybe I should try another one.

    I don't have an IMM this week because I got one book, so I'll do one next week when it'll be a more interesting post! Haha.


  10. Love that you match Drink Slay Love! lol I have DSL and The Night Circus on my to buy list:) Hope you enjoy all your books.

  11. I laughed when you realized you matched your books and put on lip stick to make it even better! You're funny.

    I can't wait to see what you think of Drink Slay Love. I hadn't heard much about the Night Circus before but it's suddenly everywhere! Gonna have to add that one to the list as well.

    Enjoy your new reads!

    Here's my In My Mailbox: http://amandalynsbooks.blogspot.com/2011/09/in-my-mailbox-no-5.html

  12. Oooh Drink Slay Love - I do want to read that one (who wouldn't)!

  17. I have DRINK, SLAY, LOVE for review, too...and also love the cover! It's been on my TBR since before the cover reveal, lol...b/c I heart Sarah Beth Durst so, so much! lol, I love that you're putting on lipstick to match. Misty, I heart YOU!! PERSUADE ME sounds interesting...will have to check it out! THE NIGHT CIRCUS!!!! Ah, I love this book so, so, SO much! I hope you will, too. I cannot WAIT for you to read this!! Ahhhhhhhhhhh make time, make time!! I love Amazon sales and spend too much there myself. From BN as well! I agree about covers...I stalk ebay for covers. Right now, I'm annoyed because I can't get the covers I want from Holly Black's TITHE series! I wouldn't read THE PEARL OF THE SOUL OF THE WORLD without reading the first two books. You will be VERY confused!!

  18. I've been seeing Drink Slay Love for a while now and I think I should check it out already.... Great haul this week! =)

  19. Night Circus! Yeahh! Hit of the blogosphere? I think so. It better live up to all the hype! Great IMM this week, you better get to reading so we can read some of your reviews!!

    My IMM

  20. You seriously make me want to read more Jane Austen. I will probably have to participate in Jane in June next year just so I can persuade myself to do it. No pun intended.

    Also, that was such as sweet gift to receive! I've also heard so many fantastic things about the Night Circus. I can't wait to pick it up. :)


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