Edit: If you're wondering where my last post went, I decided to take it down as Hilda managed to sort out the problem. I'm so happy for her! You should all head over and follow her anyway as she is a great blogger. :)
IMM is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, where bloggers share the books they have received with other readers. Apologies for not linking anything up (I am feeling particularly lazy this week). Here is what I got:
The Forever Girl by Rebecca Hamilton
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
20 Years Later by E. J. Newman
Thank you to Rebecca Hamilton for gifting me a copy of her book and E. J. Newman for the prize. A huge thanks to my sister for loaning me her copy of Beautiful Disaster. I have heard so many mixed thoughts about that book (and its characters) that I'm very intrigued now to find out what I will make of it. Hopefully I will enjoy it! :)
The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long (via NetGalley)
Oppression by Jessica Therrien
Heaven by Christophe Marzi
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (via NetGalley)
Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
Welcome Caller, This is Chloe really isn't my usual type of read but it looks hilarious. I'm hoping it will be the perfect light read to break up some of the other books on my list. I'm also very much looking forward to The Treachery of Beautiful Things. It sounds wonderful and I really do hope it lives up to my expectations. Oppression is another I am crossing my fingers for. The description for that book is what drew me to it in the first place (and not the cover for a change! - which is stunning), so I'm eager to get started on it soon. A huge thank you to the publishers, NetGalley, and Jessica Therrien for the review copies.
The Willows Haven by Hope Collier
Bound by Kira Saito
Awakening by Karice Bolton
Coexist by Julia Crane
As you can see I have broken my freebies ban. That really didn't take very long. They all have such gorgeous covers though and I couldn't help myself. I am especially looking forward to getting round to Coexist as I don't think I have ever read a book solely about elves before. It'll be nice to try something different.
And that's my book load for the week. It's nearly all fantasy...which, I guess, is normal for me. But anyway, I am planning to go on a book shopping trip in a few days (it's probably about time I made use of the gift-cards I received for Christmas) so who knows what will end up in my post next time... What did you get in your mailbox this week? Let me know if you have read any of these books!
