You got nice books :) I think my book diet is going well so far, trying to buy books one at a time :P It's not anybody's dream but oh well :P

Cass (Words on Paper) said...

Haha as you can tell I've been bingeing lately on the book buying. Not good. But so many good books are being released, and then I want to have books that have been out for a while . . . . It's a vicious cycle.

Hope you enjoy NATURE OF JADE. I'm interested in reading a Deb Caletti book that I'll enjoy. I read THE SIX RULES OF MAYBE. It was okay, but not particularly memorable.

Audrey (holes In My brain) said...

Ooh, you got the only Caletti book I've read! I hope you like it, I thought it was pretty good :) also, looks like some amazing egalleys, happy reading!

Misha said...

My book diet never works! haha
I will be looking forward to your thoughts on The Near Witch and Wherever you Go.

Missie said...

Yay for book diets... when they work. ;)

Oh, another Caletti. Can't wait for your thoughts. And all your galley grabs look great, well expect The Summer of Firsts and Lasts, that just looks yummy! Oh, and I hope Wherever you Go is as good as it looks!

Rachel said...

Great books! I'm on a ban at the moment so I can get through my TBR, but you're making me want to request some of those books from S&S. But I'll restrain myself haha. Happy reading!

You did very good! Awesome books for review :) I know next week is going to be bad for sure! There's a bunch I want! Can I restrain myself...we'll see! Happy reading :)

Asamum said...

I am in awe of this weeks mail. Happy reading:D

Nomes said...

yay for The Nature of jade!

the other ones look cute too ~ although I haven't really heard anything about any of them :/

And I am proud of your book diet. I spent $70 on books this week. Even that was restraining myself, haha.

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

I loved The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti! And of course Stay as well, haha.

I'm loving all the Summer books that will be released soon! Makes me want to leave on vacation earlier!

Braiden said...

nice books. I need to begin near witch. Can’t wait until my bday on thursday and then I get money I hope! SO that I can go on a book spree although I have enough as it is to read for the moment. Actually i hope I get a Kindle or some ereader so that I can actually read the galleys I get approved...like the near witch.

No IMM for me this week didn’t get much besides wither and eona.

Elodie said...

I haven't read anything by Deb Caletti and I'm really curious about her books !! Looking forward to read your reviews Nic !! Happy reading

Nicki said...

A book diet, that's an excellent idea. Great books this week. Have fun reading.

Christy @TheReaderBee said...

Awesome IMM! I'm really looking forward to reading Stay... I hear great things! Can't wait to see what you think of Wherever you Go, and The Near Witch. Enjoy!

Jen (Makeshift Bookmark) said...

Nic. Do yourself a favor and read Shift NOW. I was up all night last night finishing it and it was BETTER than Shade. I never thought such a thing was possible.

A.J. said...

I haven't read a Deb Caletti book. I might start with Stay. Hope Shift is good! And hope you enjoy all the other books. :)

Jenny said...

Oh my gosh Nic your mailbox this week rocks! I need to try out the Galley Grab, I just have a Kindle and I know their galleys don't work with the Kindle which is a bummer. Can't wait to see what you think of The Near Witch and Shift, I can't wait for both of those:) And good for you sticking to your book diet!

Jenny N. said...

I'm trying to hold back buying so many books too but I posted up my IMM yesterday and I already bought two books today. I can't wait to read Shift as Shade was one of my fav debut books last year. Happy reading.

Eden said...

Great balance on contemp and paranormal! The cover of Wherever You Go looks positively ethereal. And congrats for mainting your book diet! Good luck with that :)

Here's my IMM.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

You know book diets don't work. You see one book and it's all downhill from there... ;)

Near Witch... oh, sounds good!

L'Aussie said...

In my mailbox I got Stephen King's The Running Man and a wonderful anthology of short stories, Literary Foray. Both won in competitions. Woo hoo.
