So many books! And I thought I had a pretty full mailbox this week :P I want Demonglass and the Wicked Lovely Series *jealous now*

Wow you got a lot of amazing books this week! Remembered seeing the Wicked Lovely gift set at Bookperks, almost bought it, but I had already preordered Darkest Mercy, so I declined. Even though it was signed. I have all her previous books signed as well, so I'll just have to wait til I get to see Melissa again to make it a full set!

Here's my IMM

Happy Reading!

Great reads! New follower too!
I loved Red Glove and White Cat.
Where are you in Northern Cali? San Fran area? I'm moving to Sacramento in a few months and am excited to be so close to San Fran. Lots of good book signings.

Good Lord, I don't think I've seen that many books in my remarkably young life! Enjoy those, please, for me, a blogger who does not have the same fortunate access to some of the aforementioned titles!

Thanks for stopping by the blog earlier, as well!

Wow, another breathtaking list of awesome books!! I'll be watching out for your Demonglass giveaway! I have an ARC but I need to get a finished copy! :) I can't believe I had to miss the Rachel Hawkins/Sarwat Chadda signing. Somehow these things always happen when I have to work!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
