IMM #8 and Sunday Treat Halloween edition

This week has totally flown by, and right now I'm exhausted.
Halloween is not celebrated that much here, so I'm not expecting any kids treat or tricking on our quiet street, but I'm buying my pumpkin damn it! and putting it in the window ;)

Bookwise I had a very good week again, so here is my haul...


Love Leanna Renee Hieber, and the premise sounds fantastic. I'm so glad they approved my request! Also this book is part of my Netgalley Month reading.


I love spies in historicals, so I really couldn't resist this book. However so far it's been a slow read - too much thinking and info dumps and too little action.

For review

Vampires and librarians? This should be interesting :)




I wanted to read these books ages ago, and now they are free :)  Jenny Pox - get yours!

And how was your mailbox, ladies and gents?

* * *
Just a reminder.
Don't forget that today is the last day to enter my giveaway for If Angels Burn/Winter Queen.

Monday I'm participating in Spooktacular Giveaway Hop, and man have I got  a treat for you! Giveaway will be international of course.

Between now and Halloween I have another 2 giveaways planned so keep an eye out :)

Back to our music...

The video is wacky, but I love that song!
and man candies Vampire edition... 
Lestat (who is by far more interesting in the book than in the movie Queen of The Damned)
Jean Claude from Anita Blake. That there is no actual picture just tells you that no man yet came close to that perfection *grinning*
Spike (do I have to even say where from?)
 Out. For. A. Walk. B*tch
You remember? That was priceless.
So, any vampire to add? I know there are loads :)

Cicada looks good! I also want to read Darker Still but I've managed to avoid Net Galley this week. Awesome haul! Happy reading!!!

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

Oh I love that pic of Spike!! Just watched Supernatural and he was in it! Not as Spike, but the actor!

I got Darker Still too! Can't wait to read it! Happy Reading!

My IMM goes up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

Have a GREAT weekend!

VERY awesome week Kara! Hope you enjoy everything! :)

Mel said...

Spike was my favourite Vampire ever - I love him! Before Edward Cullen and the Salvators, Spike ruled the grey area of blood drinkers!

I hope you like Darker Still - I've just discovered Leanna Renee Hieber and cant' wait to try her books!

Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy said...

"Out. For. A. Walk. B*tch
You remember? That was priceless." YES YES YES!! Loved that. xD

I'm reading Cicada at the moment, it's pretty good! Gonna have the author over on the blog in a couple of weeks time, gonna be awesome. :)

Vicky @ A Backpack Full of Adventures said...

Alison Can Read said...

Great set! India Black sounds fabulous. I'm very interested in Darker Still too.

Christy @ TheReaderBee said...

Nice mailbox! I am really looking forward to reading Darker Still! Enjoy your new reads!

Jenny Q said...

I love India Black and I've got Darker Still and Touch of Power to read, too. I'm glad you hopped by my blog today! Looks like we have similar tastes :)

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

I think so, Jenny!:) I like India Black, but I wished they had less info dumps. I've got diploma in history and they feel like something taken from a lecture... Too much and completely unnecessary.

Darlene said...

Hi, Kara-karina!

The India Black cover is gorgeous! It's disappointing that the historical content is so "textbookish."

I heard Jenny Pox is a good one! I downloaded that one, too.

Enjoy your new books, and thanks for stopping by to check out my mailbox!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
