MWUAH!! and I really should’ve included a snapshot of the gift message she left for me that had me in fits of laughter. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Oh man. Okay, so Anna Dressed in Blood? Yeah, I need to get on that. EVERYONE keeps talking about how awesome it is!

    I feel a little lame that I also still haven’t read the Iron Fey books. ๐Ÿ™

    Ooh, Ripper! Anything dealing with Jack the Ripper = totally my kind of book!

    My IMM!

    • I absolutely LOVE Anna Dressed in Blood that I went bonkers when I heard April hadn’t read it yet. Its worth pushing other books aside for. You’ll read it in like a day! I haven’t read those Iron Few books either haha.
      Pabkins recently posted..In My Mailbox (32)

      • I should read Anna when you read The Passage! LOL I can’t guarantee you’ll read The Passage in a day though, it took me a couple since it’s several hundred pages – really one of the longest books I’ve read but I haven’t read tons of looong books either haha We should read the Iron Fey books together! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Well this is quite a haul! I hope you can find time to read everything! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Everlost for awhile, it looks crazy cool! Enjoy!

    • I hope I can find the time to -that’s the only problem I have is TIME to read all the books i have ๐Ÿ˜€ Everlost is on sale on B&N – at least the ebook is but the paper copy might be as well! Amazingly I had never heard of it before I stumbled on it the other day and bought it. It sounds great and I love to get caught up in a series ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Well if you’re going to go crazy that is the way to do it. Nice haul.

    • I can’t wait to get to Immortal – hopefully ASAP! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m really intrigued with the Chaos series, I actually didn’t realize it was a series until after I bought the first book – the first book has been on my radar for quite awhile though! I’m hoping I like it – and then new series to be a fan of WOOHOO haha

  5. wow you’re lucky, there are a lot of books I would love to read and some I really enjoyed. I hope you’ll like them as much as I did.

  11. Anna Dressed in Blood just got added to my shelves not that long ago, I hope I can read it soon!

    Happy reading

  12. Oh wow, you have a lot of awesome titles in here. I have just read and reviewed The Knife of Never Letting Go over on my site – and I focused on the female protagonist Viola Eade as we are also doing a Girl Power theme. Definitely one of my greatest reads this year. I am now in the thick of The Ask and the Answer, Book 2 of the Chaos Walking Trilogy. Feed also caught my eye since I’ve been collecting award-winning-titles for our very own reading challenge, and this seems like a perfect book to feature as well. Have fun with your book finds!

    Here’s mine over at GatheringBooks:

  13. What an huge amount of awesomeness in you mail box. lol. I’m a huge of Jennifer Estep’s new series and enjoyed all the Frost books so far. Hope you like them too.
    And I really, really have to start reading Kim Harrison. I feel as if I’m the last who hasn’t ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Mind if I ask how you do your pictures? It’s looks pretty cool.
    Happy Sunday

    • I haven’t read any of JEnnifer Estep’s books but they look REALLY good, I’ve been dying to read the Mythos Academy series since I first heard of it, so glad to hear you like them! I haven’t read any of Kim Harrison either – I know I can’t believe it either, so I hope I can hop on the bandwagon of her fan club too ๐Ÿ˜€

      Oh my pictures I use Power Point and then make each of them a slide, and turn the slides into individual JPEGs when I save them ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

  14. I LOVE gift cards!!! Nothing wrong with being a book-whore, I totally respect ya!!! I see you’re filling in some series like I recently did with my gift cards. I still need to pick up Julie Kagawa’s books!!! I’ll have to see what you guys think of Immortal Rules, too!!! And, shhhhh, I haven’t read Anna yet either!!!

    The book The Knife of Never Letting Go is a must read! I was totally engrossed to it. Thanks for the list of awesome books. I’ll be searching for their copies later. Cheers!
