IMM - Irresistible Books

I've really no business getting any more books right now -- I'm sure many of you can say that, but sometimes I just can't resist. After all, I DO work in a library, and I read over 200 book blogs' reviews! So all things considered, I guess I didn't go too crazy.... Here's the haul for the week:

For Review:
The Academie, by Susanne Dunlap, ebook from NetGalley
I really hate this cover (can't you stick out those boobs any farther?) but it sounds good.

Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall, ebook from NetGalley

Partials, by Dan Wells, ebook from Netgalley

Purchased:

Unlovable, by Sherry Gammon, ebook purchased from Amazon
I read some rave reviews of this one.

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy, free ebook from Amazon
It will be a while until I get to this one, but it is a goal of mine to read it!

The Glass Case, by Kristin Hannah, free ebook from Amazon

Won:

 Promissory Payback and Unrevealed, by Laurel Dewey

From the Library:
Sean Griswold's Head, by Lindsey Leavitt


I thought both of these library books had potential to qualify for my Books You Can Read in a Day Challenge.

Thanks again to Kristi, The Story Siren for hosting the fun. I can't wait to see what you all got this week (so I can add some more to my pile!) Thanks for visiting, and come back soon.

  1. Unlovable sounds really interesting.

    I'm going to have to get The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - it sounds like a really cute read.

  2. Partials is going to be great, I bet. Either way I am excited for it.

    ALSO SEAN Griswold's Head is quite good! I thought it was a wonderful contemporary read.

    Happy reading :-D

  5. Good luck with reading Anna Karenina! I tried War and Peace one time but I didn't get really far. I hope you will do better!

    Unloveable is one of those releases that I'm keeping a close I on, looking forward to see what you think.

    Happy reading!

  7. Looks like a lot of great books. I love the cover of "Unlovable".

    I read Anna Karenina about 10 years ago. Reminds me a bit of Vanity Fair. A little dark and depressing, but I enjoyed some parts of it too.

    Happy Reading!

  11. I downloaded Kristin Hannah's also, should be great. I am excited for Dan Well's as I absolutely loved his trilogy but I don't enjoy dystopian so a little scared to try it.

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am excited to read all of the books I received this week. I'll be reading The Disenchantments asap (before I have to ship it off to the next blogger for review).

    You have some great books here and yes, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a book that you can read in a day. This is a good thing because you will want to read it over and over again. At least I want to. I loved it!

    Enjoy your books!

  15. I also have Unlovable and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. I have yet to read either, but they both look good :).

    Also been wanting to read Partials, I don't remember requesting it on Netgalley, so I'm going to make sure :)

    Enjoy these! New follower :)
