IMM#15 and why my library suddenly rocks

Good morning, me dears! 
*drumroll, please*
YES, my Christmas shopping is officially done! All I need is to decorate the house, wrap the presents and post the ones that I'm late posting because I'm avoiding huge huge queues in the post office...
I'm still patting myself on the shoulder and I actually bought a few kindle books to reward my superior shopping skillzz....

Now, as to why I'm suddenly back in love with my library, - lookie-lookie what I've got here!


I was so surprised that they acquired Flesh and Blood without getting Blood Rights first. Also I have been waiting for ages for them to get the other two books, and now they are here! Yay! Almost shocked that our backwater library stocking up on some hot stuff...


This is mostly a Kindle splurge. First two books only came out as ebooks, plus Lili and Carolyn are always on my auto buy list. The rest of the books I've been curious about for quite some time. Read Beautiful Disaster already. Hm-m... Disaster indeed.

For Review

Thank you, Michelle!


Won from RomFan Reviews as paperback, and wonderful D.B. sent it to me very quickly. This is one of my favorite series in PNR genre, and I have all the books in eformat. However, this baby goes into my birthday giveaway :) That's right. There will be a sweet stash of books and something else given away to celebrate my birthday very soon :)

This is it. What's in your mailbox, ladies and gents?

Sweet music and hot men provided free of charge as usual.

This is gorgeous and so so relaxing...
 Enjoy and Happy Sunday! P.S. Don't forget to participate in my current giveaway (international, ends 7/01/12)!

YAY for your library getting some good ones! I'm lucky, my library is usually stocked well, but when they aren't they'll order what I'm wanting.
I haven't read that Lilith Saintcrow book, but I was gonna go see her today (even though I just saw her a few weeks ago) cause she was at an event at a store down the road from me. My kids were being difficult though so I didn't go :( She's always fun to chat with though!

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

OOh nice! Haven't heard of that book by Lilith either! Will have to look for it!

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

Have a GREAT weekend!

Great books! I like a lot Hexed and Half-Blood.

Birgit said...

Very inspirational book haul :-D ! If I hadn't already gone on a wee shopping spree lately (though I'm still waiting for the postman to bring all the books), I'd do so right now, hahaha!

BTW I saw you won the epic zombie-books-giveaway over at Book Chic City ... I'm officially dying with envy ;-) !

Ooh, I just recently finished Halfway to the Grave and I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to continuing the series. =)

Michelle Greathouse said...


Congrats on the library haul. I have completely given up on our library and haven't been there in over a year. Those little ladies flat out refuse to order anything remotely 'scandalous'. LOL Small towns, what can you do?

Speaking of scandalous - those pictures were lovely to look at. :)

Enjoy your reads!


Bex said...

Wow! That's so awesome your library had those! I wish I would be shocked with such awesomeness sometime o: As for the buys, great ones as well. Your mailbox has me so curious! Hope you'll enjoy it all. :)

Mel said...

Cait said...

LOL Karina, I know what you mean!!! x) There have been so many times when I wanted to start a series but my library only carried the second or third book and not the first! It's crazy! :P But my copy of Blood Rights is on its way, so I'm happy! I really hope you love Flesh and Blood & all of your other awesome-looking books! :)

Awesome mailbox, Karina! <3

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
