IMM - A Stellar Week!

Welcome to the beginning of a new week. I have to tell you, rarely have I had a week as exciting as this one has been book-wise. First, we got a new order of books in at my library, so of course about 15 of those went immediately to my TBR. Then, I got some great things in the mail, starting with my GIFT from my Secret Santa!

Here's what I got:
A Summer in Europe, by Marilyn Brant

Camp Nine, by Vivienne Schiffer

Suite Scarlett, by Maureen Johnson, audiobook

A chocolate bar, ornament, hot chocolate mix and a card!

As you can see, my Santa was very generous, but I have no idea who he/she is! How do I find out? The suspense is killing me!

ARCs For Review:
The Girls of No Return, by Erin Saldin from Scholastic

Irises, by Francisco X. Stork, from Scholastic

The List, by Siobhan Vivian from Scholastic

First time I've been successful at soliciting ARCs from a publisher. Thanks Scholastic!

Pure, by Julianna Baggott, from NetGalley

The Bungalow, by Sarah Jio from NetGalley

Graffiti Moon, by Cath Crowley, from NetGalley


Lost in Time, by Melissa De La Cruz, SIGNED! from Jen at I Read Banned Books

Time for Kids: That's Incredible, by Editors of Time for Kids Magazine, from Karin's Book Nook

See what I mean? Wow! I didn't even bring home any books from the library this week. Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting IMM each week. Make sure you go over there and visit some other participating blogs.

I'm also looking for participants for my "Books You Can Read in a Day" Challenge, so go check it out!

And, you don't want to miss my Holiday Giveaway, so visit there too! 

Thanks for stopping by, and as always, Happy Reading!

  1. What a terrific week! And such a speedy secret Santa -- she (whoever she is!) did a great job :)

  2. Wow, a good week indeed. You are going to be busy over the Christmas hols!

  3. Ohh, love the chocolate mix! I'm looking forward to The List, and I REALLY enjoyed reading Graffiti Moon. Lost in Time - that cover is amazing! Great week!

  4. You got an awesome Secret Santa =)
    I really need to read this book by Maureen Johnson. I've only read the Name of the Star.
    My IMM
    A Beautiful Madness

  5. Wow! Great books. Pure is really good, I read it a few weeks ago!

  6. Lots of great books there! I hope you find out who your Santa is!!!


  7. I can't wait to read The List. I love the cover! It sounds very very good! Thank you for sharing your awesome mailbox!

  8. These books look awesome! Suite Scarlett and Pure have beautiful covers. They make great additions to anyone's bookshelf! Great IMM this week! :)

  9. Congrats on your publisher ARCs! I'm so excited for you! The List looks good. I'll be keeping an eye out for your review. :)

  10. Your haul is so exciting! I'm jealous of your signed copy of Lost in Time! I still haven't read my woefully UNSIGNED copy yet. Frankly, I don't know what's wrong with me - I love this series! Not to mention the rest of these amazing books.

    Have a fabulous reading week, Annette!

  11. I'm not sure if it's too early to reveal, but... your secret Santa is ME! :)

    I popped over today to see if you'd received your package and was delighted to see that you did. I'm so glad you like everything and that it arrived safely! I was a little worried that the chocolate would melt in our temperate Maryland winter here... but am relieved to see that it's good to go. :)

    I hope you have a very merry Christmas and enjoy all your excellent reading!


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
