IMM #24 or slowing down a little

Morning, me dears! Shall I be British and complain about the weather?
No snow since last Sunday, instead we had rain and sleet in minus temperature which resulted in ice. Lots of it. Don't. Like. It.

I figured that with my new job I would need to slow down blogging and have 5 posts a week instead of 7-8. By the time weekend is here I really want to just chill out with the book and catch up on my fellow bloggers posts (I had to go through 600 today :) So, I hope you don't mind me slowing down a bit.

What have I got in my mailbox this week?


Thanks to The Book Smugglers and Neesha Meminger! The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and it's about time-travel!

Goodreads Book Swap

Thank you, Lucinda! This book has been on my wishlist forever simply because French Revolution is one of my most favourite historical periods.

For Review

Mayan Prophecy and Russian mafia... How could I possibly resist?! Thank you, Killian!

This urban fantasy was a pleasant surprise from Orbit UK.


For those of you who don't know it, Sarah Wendell is one of two bloggers of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books (and I love that blog!). Their first book Beyond Heaving Bosoms was absolutely hilarious and a must buy for any fan of romance novels, and I had this one on my wishlist for ages! It's currently on offer from Amazon UK/US under £3/$3 on Kindle.


            Savor Amazon Kindle UK/US - get yours!

So, this is it. How was your mailbox, ladies and gents?

This soundtrack I found by accident through an ad for a video game, and it's amazing!
Photek - Sleepwalking (feat Linche)
Enjoy! Man candy for this week is Taylor Kitsch! Have you seen the trailers for John Carter?! I'm salivating over this movie :)))
Happy Sunday!

I'm hating the ice and cold weather as well - although we had more snow on Thursday. Slow down as much as you need!

I picked up a couple of those books as well including Unclean Spirits - I forgot to add it to mt IMM these week though...will add it next week!

Lesley said...

Strangely we haven't had any snow in Glasgow which is mental as its usually freezing here. I've slowed down on the blogging front too recently mostly because I'm very lazy!

Melliane said...

Oh I haven't read any of them but I hope you'll like them! Enjoy!

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

Nice! I got Savor as well since it was free! Had been looking at it for awhile now and then BAM! It's free! Had to get it!

Here'y my IMM

Have a GREAT day!

I did my A level history coursework on the French Revolution! I can't remember a thing about it but it was kinda fun learning about a new period that I'd never really touched on before.

Ohh Dan was JUST watching that trailer and I sat there thinking "I like the music" Thanks for that!

AND thems some man candy.

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
