Awesome IMM Books

Stack Of Fabulousity!

For Review:

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris (Vine)
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis (Vine)
Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay (Netgalley)
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (Netgalley)
Alif The Unseen by Willow Wilson (Netgalley) – okay so you guys might not have heard of this one but Shelf Awareness described it as being a cyber punk, Middle Eastern Harry Potter for adults. Of course I immediately requested that noise.
Underworld by Meg Cabot (Unsolicited) – OMG THERE’S A LETTER FROM MEG CABOT INSIDE! I DIE!
Endlessly by Kiersten White (Requested Review Copy) – AHHHHHHHH! That’s all I can say. AHHHH!
So Close To You by Rachel Carter (Requested Review Copy) – The jacket describes it as being The Time Traveler’s Wife meets Before I Fall. I cannot resist that.
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan (Requested Review Copy) – FINALLY an answer to some of those vaguely abusive boyfriends in certain books.
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (Requested Review Copy) – It’s sort of a love story between Tiger Lily and Peter Pan. Dudes, that is fricken ACE.
Insignia by SJ Kincaid (Requested Review Copy) – First that cover is banging. Second, it’s about a gamer. SIGN ME UP!
Somebody To Love by Kristan Higgins (Unsolicited Review Copy) – AHHHHH! I am so excited. I’ve only read one KH book and luckily it was the one that introduces the main character of this book. SO YAYYYYYY!

  1. I see you there with your linkage and your amazon vine lurve. GET IT GIRL.

    Tiger Lily does indeed sound ace. Thanks for the heads up, yo!

  2. I’m pretty jealous of your stack ๐Ÿ™‚ Tiger Lily looks BRILLIANT. I got Underworld this week and I may have freaked out – I cannot wait to read it! Enjoy all your books ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ohhh Team Human!! I’m so stoked on that one, it looks freakin awesome!!!! I hope you enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m really excited for Underworld too, I loved Abandon so I’m excited to see what’s going to happen next!!! Enjoy all your books!!

  4. Willow Wilson has also written The Butterfly Mosque that has been on my to read list for ages. But thanks for the headsup about Alif. Also, I am burning with envy for your copy of Enchanted. I seriously hope you like it because we have similar reading tastes since I already saw one star (eek) reviews of it on GR. :\

    • Oh, I like the sound of The Butterfly Mosque!
      And okay, Alif sounds like it is going to be wicked awesome.

      I feel like I’m more… forgiving with books/easy going and I know a lot of people on GR are more persnickety with their tastes, which is fine. I think we all read and experience books differently which makes discussing books way better than if everyone was like, yup I agree. SO yeah, I’ll do my best to read it within two weeks or so.

  5. Great books! Team Human looks really good … as does Tiger Lily! I’m also very intrigued by So Close To You since I adored The Time Traveler’s Wife (still have to read Before I Fall, but it’s Lauren Oliver — not going to disappoint!).

    Great IMM! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Okay, so, as usual your mailbox is full of win. I’m really interested in both Enchanted and Unraveling, but more than anything I am dying to read Team Human. It’s very existence helps me to sleep at night, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. I’m kinda torn on Tiger Lily…everyone’s super excited, and I feel like I should be ’cause I love retellings, but I was never really a Peter Pan fan. Thus, I’ll have to wait for the reviews to flow!

    • My mailbox loves winning.

      I like that Team Human was actually written.

      See, I like Peter Pan but am not insane about it. BUT I just love the idea of a sort of telling from the POV of a minor character.

  7. ooooh Underworld. I still need to read Abandon though.

  8. Ohhhhhh! This is just awesome. And I see Unraveling and Team Human in there? *dies a little* Those looks seriously amazingtastic! I hope you enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Unraveling looks really good and so does Endlessly even though I haven’t read Supernaturally yet! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here’s my IMM!

  10. Woot, stack of fabulousity, for sure! I hope you enjoy all of your amazing books! Happy reading! (:

    Check out what was IMM รขโ€ โ€œ

  11. I’ll have to look for Alif the Unseen. I remember seeing it in Shelf Awareness now that you mention it…

    I have Unraveling and Unspoken too. I have high hopes for Unspoken because I really like Sarah Rees Brennan’s writing. So Close to You and Team Human sound like books I need to check out too.

  12. YOU GOT ENDLESSLY! I am so very jealous. Team Human and Tiger Lily both look great too! Enjoy your books ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. ๐Ÿ™‚ I got a copy of Alif the Unseen too! It sounded way too good to pass up.

    I can’t wait to see what you think of Tiger Lily & Unraveling! Both caught my eye a while ago and I cannot wait to read them!

    Kristan Higgins books are HUGE where I work and I’ve been so curious about them. They seem like perfect summer books.

    My IMM!

  14. Tiger Lily and Endlessly are high on my wishlist! I requested review copies on Friday so I’m still waiting to hear from Harper, but I so can’t wait either way. Dude, APRIL, your books… JUST AHHHHH. I’m squealing for you even though I wish it was me with all that awesomeness.

    Have an amazing reading week!

  15. Tiger Lily sounds so interesting; its on my To Read List! Also, I need to read White’s Paranormalcy series; my students rave about it! Enjoy all the fun reads!

  16. You have some amazing books this week! So jealous! I also got an unsolicited copy of UNDERWORLD by Meg Cabot and I LOVE THE LETTER SHE HAD INSIDE OF IT! ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. I just finished ‘Somebody to Love’ and really liked it! My fav character is James. He is FAB! I’d only read one other Kristan Higgin’s title and she’s my new favorite romance author!

  18. OMG you got Unraveling!!! Awesome haul of books ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you enjoy reading them all!

  19. Several of these look good. I’ve not seen many of them before. I’m particularly interested in Insignia — looks like a good one. Thanks! And, thanks for visiting!

  20. Alif The Unseen sounds good in theory, I just get scared when they start comparing it to some things that the book sounds nothing like. Really interested in hearing how you liked it!

    – Jessica @ Book Sake

  21. What great books! I so want to read Tiger Lily and Underworld. I hop you have a great week of reading! Happy Sunday!

  24. Oh boy, I think I want everything you got this week. You are so not helping me lower my tbr pile… I’ll definitely be looking forward to your reviews!

    Thanks for visiting my IMM.

  25. I got Unraveling a little while ago! I’m really looking forward to reading it in April. Awesome haul, a few of these are on my wishlist! Endlessly is right at the top, I’m so excited to see how this trilogy ends.

  26. Hi there April, this seems like a huge mailbox. And lots of books to review! Most of them are pretty thick ones as well. The book spine of Enchanted caught my eye. Enjoy your new reads this week!

    Here’s mine over at GatheringBooks:

  27. Looks like you had an awesome week. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really need to read Abandon by Meg Cabot, I have heard a lot of good things about it just haven’t picked up a copy yet. Same with the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White, lol.. I am so far behind. ๐Ÿ˜› Insignia also sounds like it’s going to be awesome. Hope you enjoy everything you got this week. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here is mine: IMM (16)

  28. *stroked your pretty pile of books* HOLY COW WAS IT A GOOD WEEK FOR YOU! A letter from Meg Cabot? *falls over* Awesome week of books – I’ll be looking forward to lots of great upcoming reviews!

  29. Wooop for Amazon Vine! Awesome that a letter from Meg Cabot was included- I would squeal. Your books look good- I haven’t heard of many but I love to see new books! x

  30. Awesome IMM! You got a letter from Meg! How cool is that. I’m so excited to see you got Endlessly. I can not wait to read that!! Happy Reading!

  31. Oh, that one was The Next Best Thing, then, right? *scratches head* If so, I LOVED it! And I loved Somebody to Love, which I read last week or the week before or something! *grin*

    Have a great week!

  32. You got some really awesome books! I’m pretty jealous of you right now!
    I’ve been pining for Unraveling since some time now! Lucky you!
    I hope you enjoy all your books ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy reading!

  33. Wow. You got a lot of pretty books. I hope you enjoy them. Great haul.


  34. Nice books! I still need to read Supernaturally but I can’t wait to hear how ENDLESSLY is. Great haul, April!

  35. Oh yeah. Ohhhh yeah. Those books look soooo sexual. I see you there;)

    I haven’t read the Vampire Academy series, but I’ve only heard good things about this and everyone’s longing for Tiger Lily to release. Romeo Redeemed is awesome<3

    Great Haul of book.

  36. Tiger Lily sounds like it’d be so much fun!

    Unraveling I got a few weeks ago and read ASAP, I enjoyed it!

    Hope you enjoy them all!

  37. Ok, so: Endlessly AHHHHH! I need to request it.
    Tiger Lily: I am SO requesting this one too. I’ve been trying to not request things and not accept things as much because I have SO MANY effing books to read, but sometimes it’s just like, how can you not?
    Team Human: I had been hearing about this vaguely, and always put it in the maybe pile, but this: “FINALLY an answer to some of those vaguely abusive boyfriends in certain books.” put it into the definite pile.
    Alif: I saw that blurb too, and was SO tempted to request it. I’m pretty sure I held off, but if there’s a SA giveaway…Temptation? What temptation.
    Enchanted: AHHHHH! Mine’s on my way to me right now and I CAN’T WAIT. I have been dying for a retelling of this tale.

    EXCELLENT week, April.

  38. Oh, oh, oh, and – You should totally link up your review of Enchanted during FTF, if you’ve read and reviewed it by then. (And if you have, I’ll send people your way in my review, too. =D)

  39. Yay for Underworld! I read Abandon a while ago and thought it was great! Also, yay for Unraveling; it looks great! And wooot for Team Human!

  40. Yay for Underworld! I read Abandon a while ago and thought it was great! Also, yay for Unraveling; it looks great! And wooot for Team Human!

    Thanks for stopping by my IMM :

  41. I love the pic of your goodies!! It’s so refreshing to see people actually getting print books still!!! I still geek on actual books but I’ve sent myself to the ebook corner for now b/c I’ve got too much sitting on my shelves right now and my hubby is starting to notice ๐Ÿ™

    Paranormalcy is one of those sitting there staring at me! I’m so jealous you’re so far ahead in everything and you’ve got so many great reads ahead!! I need to read faster!!!

    Have a great week!!
    -Kristin @myparahangover

  42. AHHHHHH!!!! Super jealous of Endlessly! You must let me know how it is! ๐Ÿ˜€

  43. ENDLESSLY!!! That’s seriously a really awesome IMM. And that’s so cool how you got a letter from Meg ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Review Copies for Endlessly are already out?? I need to get reading *eek* I want to read the whole series so bad.

  45. I have UNRAVELING to read as well. I really enjoyed ENCHANTED and have had so much trouble sitting on my review. I can’t wait to share it with you next month! I keep seeing TIGER LILY around and I really want to read it! I haven’t determined if I’ll read ENDLESSLY or not. I probably will, though I didn’t LOVE first two! UNDERWORLD, ahh, lucky!!! (And I don’t know if you were emailed my reply or not, but yesssssss, buy SM manga!!!! It’s sooo much more romantic!)

  46. Hello pretty pretty pile of yummy books!
    Great ones you got there – Team Human looks awesome!

    Hi there, just popping in… Nice!

    I’m jealous of all the hard copy books you have :P, enjoy your reading.

    Here is my blog to check out:

    My IMM

  53. AWESOME MAILBOX BOMB! So much great stuff. I can’t wait for Team Human!
    I read Unraveling for the DAC ARC Tour–I thought it was FANTASTIC. Can’t wait to see what you think!
    And Tiger Lily. Honestly. If that whole book doesn’t sound like the best idea ever, I don’t know what does. I will be INCREDIBLY bummed if it turns out to be meh. Peter Pan is one of my favorite stories, so I’ve got MAD high hopes for Tiger Lily to rock my socks!!

  54. great haul! ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Ooh great haul! I hear Unraveling is EPIC!!!

    Xpresso Reads

  56. Wow, what an awesome haul! I really want to read Tigerlily!

  57. I have Somebody to Love from NetGalley! Planning to read it soon. I thought it was Catch of the Day that is somewhat related to Somebody to Love because of the setting? I read Catch of the Day first because Angie convinced me that I should before starting on Higgins’ latest. ๐Ÿ˜›

  58. Oh, I could spend hours staring at this photo! I’m dying to get my hands on copies of ENDLESSLY, UNRAVELING, ENCHANTED, TIGER LILY and TEAM HUMAN! I really hope you’ll enjoy everything – can’t wait to hear your thoughts about these. ๐Ÿ™‚


  59. Great mailbox! I read Unraveling this week and really enjoyed it. I hope you do too! And I am soooooooo jealous that you got Tiger Lily, Endlessly, and Underworld!!

    Here is my Mailbox

  60. Endlessly, Echanted *faint* I’m jealous right now, haha. Can I ask you a question? I’m new to the whole bookblog business, but how do you get ‘request copies’? You just mail to the publisher and tadaaa, you get one? :p

    Happy reading, nice IMM!

  61. You got Endlessly…SO JEALOUS! I hope you enjoy all of your new, fabulous books ๐Ÿ™‚

  62. Tiger Lily and Peter Pan! HOLY SHIT. Can’t wait to read your review!
