  1. Ohmystars! I am so jealous that you have A Rogue By Any Other Name!!!! I adore Sarah MacLean! She and Sophie Jordan were my first introduction to romance novels and I cannot get enough! So glad you loved it. Hope the other books you got are great as well. 🙂

  2. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week! Come check out my IMM!

  3. I screamed a little when I got This is Not a Test too!! Habibi looks very pretty, did you read Blankets yet? I’d like to hear how it was. I’d also like to hear about A Drowned Maiden’s Hair when you read it. I hadn’t heard of this one before, but it sounds like an interesting historical novel.

  4. Ah so excited for the new Sarah Maclean novel, I just recently recommended her other books to a co-worker and when she was telling me how much she loved them, I had to re-read them 🙂

  5. njoy all

  6. I’ve been made some pretty huge promises that Wonder is an amazing book and planning on reading it this week. Apparently tissues are a must.

  7. Dude, Habibi. I remain forever jealous.

  8. Ah yes the screaming excitement we book lovers know so well 🙂 Hope you love them all

  9. I would totally read Wonder along with you except you probably read 10,000x faster than I do. That and I can never guarantee when I’ll read anything so there’s that. But! I’m planning on reading it next month. (she says hopefully)

    Okay, for this Habibi business — you must let me know how this goes. One of my favorite cover blogs talked about it (as well as its interior) but commented on all of the nekkidness, which I’m not sure I’m comfortable with. So, as someone who probly can’t look at a bunch of nekkid in a book, you’ll have to give it a Capillya Eyes rating as well. I hate to say that, too, because I loved Blankets.

    Oh also:


  10. I only recognize one book mentioned, Anna Dressed in Blood, which sounds really good. Although it’s nice to see that your excited about your books.

    Happy reading. =)

  11. This is Not a Test looks SO great, and I really need to get Anna Dressed in Blood one of these days. Enjoy all your books 🙂

  12. I am loving that art work on the large book on the bottom of your pile….


    Actually, my library has a sucktastic graphic novel section. Otherwise they’re pretty okay. But they have no plans for Habibi. Which makes me double over and almost fall into the fetal position and sob. Because I’ve heard such amazing things. I want to hear ALL THE THINGS about it. And soon. Read it for me.

  14. I’m kind of in love with your IMM. Jealous, too. 😉

  15. I really liked Anna Dressed In Blood!

  16. I still need to read Anna Dressed in Blood. I’ve had it on my TBR forever. Enjoy all your new books. 🙂

  17. Nice mailbox! I still haven’t read Anna Dressed in Blood :/ But I hope you love it! And all of your other stuff 🙂

    Check out what’s happening in my mailbox 😀

  18. Habibi sounds really interesting. I will have to try Sarah MacLean’s books sometime. I really liked her YA book and I’ve heard her compared to Julia Quinn, who I am a fan of.

  19. I got This is Not a Test too! Can’t wait to start it. it sounds so good!
    Hope you’ll enjoy it!
    Happy Reading!

  22. I loved anna dressed in blood so much.. She is one kick ass ghost.

    I have to look up the “This is not a test” book because I have seen everyone tweeting about being denied for it this week, and I have no idea what it’s about. lol

    yay for all the kindle deals… Ahhhhh only about a month till I get mine and I can start taking advantage of the deals too! 🙂

  23. You’re going to love ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD. It was one of my favorite books of last year. 🙂

  25. I got so excited when I got approved for This is Not a Test. Apparently lots of people got denied on NG, so we were fortunate I guess. Enjoy your books!

    Check out what I got In My Mailbox this week

  26. Hehe. I may have done a little dance myself when I saw that I was approved for This Is Not a Test. So exciting!

    I REALLY need to find out what the big deal is for Anna Dressed in Blood. A lot of people seem to think that it’s not THE BEST book on the planet but that it’s really enjoyable. And those covers! Ridiculously creepy and scary and things of sinister nature. Looking forward to your thoughts on it.

    Have an amazing reading week, April!

  27. I just love Amazon Vine. SO MUCH.

    Happy reading!

  28. I really want to read Habibi but it’s so expensive!

  29. Soo jealous that you got This is Not a Test! I requested it but was denied :(. I can’t wait til it comes out so I can borrow it from the library or buy it!
