  2. WOW.. is all i can say every time i see your IMM. lol

    Love the new crayon.
    Happy reading!

  3. oooh, Hollow Hills! I have all 4 books of that Merlin series but I haven't read them yet. I need/want to.

    I'm jealous of Tender Morsels and A Certain Slant of Light too…you had some awesome finds at that library sale.

  4. My husband really likes that George RR Martin series, he's mad the last book hasn't come out yet.

  5. Oh AND, I'm jealous of your book sale… when they have them here they are definitely not .25 each, meh

  6. I read The Thief it was incredible lots of amazing books!

  7. You got some great books.

    I really want to read Boys Bears and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots. It looks like fun.


  8. LOL that was super fast! You definitely got some great books! I haven't read Empire Falls yet but I've wanted to. I think I have it on my TBR somewhere, haha.

  9. Vampires and Tofu says

    You scored BIG TIME at the library book sale!!

    And have inspired me to hit my library bookstore, haven't been there in a couple of months.

    Happy reading!

  10. Now that's what I call a major haul. I love the sound of some of those – Tender Morsels is meant to be amazing, and I read A Million Shades of Grey by Cynthia Kadohata recently so I'll be interested to hear about Kira Kira. Interesting selection!

  11. I think this is the largest IMMB haul I've ever seen! You got soooo many good books this week. Read, Remember, Recommend For Teens sounds really interesting. I'm a freak about lists too so no worries, you are not weird haha.

    Happy reading!

  12. WOW! Now that is a big load of bookish love there! Enjoy your reading loot and don't forget to share your reviews once you start to finish reading! =0)

  13. Wow a book lovers dream! Lots and lots of books!

    Alicia Afterimage and Boys, Bears and a serious pair of Hiking Boots looks interesting.

    Wow, looks like you hit the jackpot at your library sale! We have one coming up next week. So excited about it 🙂

  15. Mama Bookworm says

    Wow! You scored a ton of great book at the library sale. Enjoy!

  16. WOOOOOOOOW! I think I may have passed out from the awesomeness that is your IMM this week. 🙂
    I wish my library had book sales, more to the point, I wish my library got NEW books once in a while.

  17. wow – that is a lot of books! And what a great selection of books!

  18. Serpentine Librarian says

    WOW April, that was so many books! I'm really glad that you're liking The Thief, just wait until King of Attolia (that's my favorite of the series), just excellent. We'll have to talk about the series and characters after you're finished. And thanks for the mention that was really nice of you.
