IMM #27, March releases and have I just seen UFO?

No, I'm not bullsh*tting you. I might be blind as a bat usually but my hubby saw it too - a formation of red/orange lights moving across the sky really fast with no noise (like helicopter) and no trace (like a plane). UFO? 
Apparently people all over UK saw something similar.

On this exciting note here is my mailbox...


A girl-assassin. Need I say more?

I've been raving about this book for ages and I'm ecstatic to be approved for an e-arc!

(a bit of a shopping spree for me due to be getting paid my first salary on a new job)

A marvellous book about a daughter of local superheroes who has no powers of her own (I read it already). 

Another one of those new releases I can't wait to read, plus the price was unbelievably cheap!

Started reading it, but not overly impressed with Gwen's power of deduction and ability to concentrate on anything beyond gorgeous boys yet. Hope she'll gather her wits soon.

This series by Connie Suttle is on my auto-buy. The author made a sharp turn from urban fantasy to sci-fi/fantasy around book four and is still going in that direction three books later. They are absolutely insane and quite unique. Read this one already. Not her best, but still good.

I bought three more books but they are not here yet and will go into the next week's mailbox.

So how was your mailbox, ladies and gents?

Now, here are some March releases I'm really excited about...

So many gorgeous books! What are you waiting for this month?

Perhaps this is too heavy and deep for Sunday morning,  but Lhasa was an incredible artist and a singer and I'm sad to find out that she passed away from cancer.

Been hearing good things about the Hunt. Great stash of books.


Bex said...

Yay on The Hunt! I can't wait to read it, it sounds SO awesomeeeee. And Grave Mercy and Oppression sounds real good as well! Hope you enjoy. :D


Mel said...

After The Golden Age has been on my wishlist forever!! So jealous you have a copy! :)

I got Grave Mercy this week as well, but forgot to put it in on my mailbox.

Those lights you both saw sound really odd...any ideas what it could be? (Besides being unidentified!)

Melliane said...

I hope you'll like kiss of frost as much as I did, it was a nice read. Enjoy all your new books.


Yiota said...

It was a meteorite in the UK - my brother has photos of it from a set up he has on his garden shed to record the night sky.

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

OOoh very nice! I like that cover for Dark Storm! Looks really interesting! Also got Timeless and looking forward to the finale of the series! I tried to get Grave Mercy, but it wouldn't let me download it. Oh well! Still have plenty else to read!

Hope you enjoy all your fab new books!

Here's my IMM

Have a GREAT day!

I'm looking forward to your review of The Hunt. :) Have a great week, Kara!

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

lovely haul..i have heard good things about illuminate

Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy said...

Huh. I don't believe in UFOs but that IS a bit weird. Space debris, perhaps? That's quite common but burns up very quickly.

Anyway. Books. Yes. I thought I might see Grave Mercy around a fair bit after the email! It does sound pretty fantastic, I couldn't resist picking it up despite how behind I am on review books. And WOW there really ARE a lot of March releases.. I'd only seen the YA ones so far. o_o

Mimi Valentine said...

Oh my gosh, a UFO??? That is so cool, Karina!!! :D I don't think you're crazy at all because I definitely believe in them too! Well, okay, maybe not the stereotypically green and slimy aliens from the movies, but there has to be other life in the universe for sure! And if they come in a cool UFO to visit our planet? I'm game! ;)

Even besides that, you have an amazing mailbox this week, Karina! Grave Mercy, The Hunt, Kiss of Frost... I hope you enjoy them all! :) <3

Jamie said...

That's an awesome mailbox this week! Can I tell you how much I LOVED Sacrificial Magic! Have fun reading those awesome books!

Here's what's in our mailboxes!


Anonymous said...

You have an incredible IMM this week! Color me envious. I can't wait to get Fair Game - I'm a huge Briggs fan!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Sounds like you might have seen aliens, or something anyway. :) And those are some amazing books! Hope you enjoy them all and have a wonderful week.

Jen said...

Awesome stack of books! I also got Grave Mercy & The Hunt!

THE HUNT. GRAVE MERCY. Can you feel my jealous oozing through your computer screen? I'm really surprised. I am DYING to read both of these, they sound absolutely incredible. I hope you love them!!

Eeeee! And I can't wait for Spell Bound! <3

Tristan said...

Hey, awesome that you got Grave Mercy, I need to start it soon. It sounds like one of those books that will have a strong female lead, hope it lives up to my expectations! I love the Mythos Academy books by Jennifer Estep, you read Touch of Frost first right? Happy readin =D

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
