IMM #13 and the Winner of Geek Girl!

It's getting chilly out here, and my mom in Russia just told me that the temperature there dropped to -10C *shuddering* Give me wet and mild English winter any day! I hope you are all staying warm and cosy :)

Here is what I've got in my mailbox...


I said it before and I'll say it again. Don't get put off by bad covers for D.B. Reynolds' books. They are in fact excellent PNR/UF. I also couldn't resist Touch. Interesting how aliens suddenly became trendy in YA. I'm sure we'll see a lot more of them next year.


Thank you, Book Chick City! I've read this book before as an egalley and wanted to have my own copy. 


Thanks to my friend, I've read Dmitri's book at last! Nalini is wonderful as usual. I really need to read her other series...


Death's Hand - get yours!

So, what's in your mailbox, ladies and gents?

A nice song to wake you lot up :)

Ugh... that is WAY too cold! It's been in the 50-60F here and I'm freezing. Such a baby, I know. I'd like to read Touch, hopefully I can get to it soon.

Bex said...

I'm extremely curious about Touch! I think it sounds amazing. I wanna give it a try quite badly! Hope I can get to it soooon. Great IMM!


Birgit said...

Good thing we don't live in Russia, eh?
But seriously, I find myself constantly complaining about the cold these days and temps are now around 0 degrees. I'm not made for thse kind of temps ... then of course I will also complain if temps climb over 30 degrees *lol*.

Good to see you got the SM Reine book. I already bought it a while ago as I loved her previous YA novels so much and I was curious about her first adult. She sure can write, so I'm curious how you'll like it. I haven't had time to read it so far, but plan to do so in December!

My own IMM post will be up in the afternoon and I think you might once again tell me to drop everything to read the books ... all at once, hahaha!

Mel said...

I definitely feel warmer and more awake now! :-)
Great books - you seem lucky on the winning front recently!! I'm managing to stick with my book buying ban at the moment - just!

Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy said...

But of course, I'll be winning the 300 followers giveaway.. right? ;)

I still don't think aliens are my thing but Cicada was fantastic. And *high five* for awesome looking freebies.

Lesley said...

You need to read Nalini Singh's psy/changeling series if you liked Dimitri's story the series is fantatsic!

Karen said...

I have to find some time to get to Dimitri's book and I've heard a lot of great things about Touch.

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

OOh nice! Death's Hand looks pretty interesting! Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

That cover IS awful. ha!

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Cat, I know! I've been bitching about how her covers don't do the books any justice, but unfortunately all covers of this publisher are like this. It's like they are blind and deaf. Such a pity. Their sales would be so much better otherwise :)

Lesley, I know! It's just there are so many books, and I'm afraid to start. It's a huge task :)

Hannah, LOL. Have you been a good girl? Maybe Santa will let you win. Did you ask him? *wink*

Unknown said...

I've been meaning to read Touch, just haven't gotten around to lately. So many books, so little time *sigh*

Have a great week! :)

Jenny said...

Yay Archangel's Blade!!!! I loved Dimitri's book, I wasn't sure I was going to like him based on the first book in the series, but I adored him. I've heard Touch is really amazing as well!

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
