IMM #37

Hello, me dears! We had an incredible balmy week, and I'm just amazed how so much happier I feel with a little bit of sun. We had a smashing day out yesterday in Conwy, Wales. Just look at this...
Yep, honest to God medieval castle in the background!


Gorgeous!

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

                                                             Egalley

Thanks to Carina Press!

                                                     Physical goodies

 I'm so very excited about them!

                                                               Won

Thanks to Birgit and Glenn Kleier! You can guess from the title that there is plenty of theology, mysticism and religion in this one, and I love books like that, that really make you think.

                                                             Bought

Bought it from Fishpond.com under £3 - pure bargain!
 The Works is selling trade paperbacks of Wither for £1.99, so make a note anyone in UK and run to the shop. It was an excellent bargain, and a book I wanted to read for ages.

                                                          For review

 My prrrecious! Thank you, Bloomsbury UK!

Kindle Freebie

Thanks to Petra for alerting me of this amazing freebie. This book has been on my wishlist for ages.

I also have some lovely books to choose from if you haven't entered my giveaway yet. It's international and ends on 31st of May.

Now back to...

This is absolutely magical! Perfect for Sunday morning :)
Happy Sunday!

  3. Birgit, I know! I didn't expect it to arrive so fast after your email :)

    Mel, believe it or not Conwy is only hour and a half drive from us. We have to venture out Stoke more often especially in this weather. It was amazing! Hope you'll go out somewhere nice too!

  12. What you doing in Wales? Come visit meeee ;)

    Oh I went to The Works this week as well, they didn't have Wither though. The Chaos Walking trilogy and all but Uglies of the Scott Westerfeld series, however.

    Isn't the Throne of Glass ARC gorgeous? Glad you got one too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Aww, according to Google you are 4 hours drive away from me, Hannah! ;) I would love to visit, but it has to be overnight thingy. Hubby needs to be persuaded, accomodation sorted and that kind of thing :) but hey, I am all up for it, it would be awesome to meet! :))) On the other hand if you want to come to us, you're welcome. We've got a spare bedroom you can stay in and some gorgeous places to visit around Derbyshire. *hugs*

  14. Chelsey, it was that cover that made me request the book. Something is really cool about it :)

    Blodeuedd, lol! I've rendered you speechless! ;) It's a pretty awesome photo of him. Smoldering, even!

    Kimba, I know! I love the excuse of looking at all these gorgeous eye-candies for my Sunday posts :)

    Jessica, Lori, Giselle, I love that cover. Epics is definitely one word that comes to mind straight away!

    Michelle, Melliane, do start Stacia Kane's books. They are some of the best YA series I've ever read. Full of awesome.

  15. Wither!! I love love LOVED that book and, even though I know that a lot of people tend to have mixed feelings on it, I really hope it's worthy of your favourites shelf like it is for me! :) Also, that place IS gorgeous (just like this week's eye-candy!) -- isn't the nice weather just perfect? We're having it here in Canada too and I'm glad it's spreading around the world! ;)

    Amazing mailbox this week, Karina! I hope you have a just as lovely week! :) <3

  18. I don't know which I'm more jealous of.... your beautiful day out on Conwy or your copy of Throne of Glass!! I guess I'll just remain jealous of Conwy and then come steal TOG :P DYING to read that, it looks so effing BADASS!!!! Wither is fantastic. Beautifully written, but a haunting story.

    Awesome week, hope you enjoy!

    And oh swoon. You know how to bring the sexy. You really do.
