Hello my lovelies. Well will you look at that, October has showed her head. Summer is over 🙁 But that means Halloween is just around the bend – which sets the perfect mood for creepy books like Mara Dyer that I have finally received.  I hope you’re all happy with your haul this week, I sure know that I am.  Some of these I’ve waited a long time to get my hands on and I’m super excited to get into them.
I have received for review:

    I’m still waiting on my Mara! I think it was a mistake to order it with Silence and Carrier of the Mark, because I have to wait until the 4th for it all to ship out at once! Aaargh! I’m still waiting for my copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone as well! I read Touch already and *loved* it! Have you read it yet?

    Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
    My IMM!


    You received your copy of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! I hope you love it. Check out the book Unloveable, you wont believe the similarities to the cover of Between. They definitely used the same image.

    Oooooh! I’m sooo jealous Giselle. I’m dying for Touch!! Can’t wait to see your review and what you think!

    You got a great haul this week!

    My IMM goes up tomorrow, so I’ll link back later.

    Enjoy your stash!

    Already done with Smoke and Bone?! Wow okay, can’t wait for your review! I JUST started it, but really liking it so far.

    Hope you enjoy Mara Dyer as much as I did! And I’m interested to know what you think of Ashfall… one of those books I’m not sure about.

    Oh wow @ fivealarmbookreviews. The covers really ARE similar. I’ve seen that happen before though. On Goodreads there’s a listopia list about similar covers it’s pretty interesting to check.

    I just finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone this week, and it’s awesome! Ashfall was pretty great, too. I think lots of us will finally have Mara Dyer this week. All of your books look like they’ll be great.

  8. Amber

    Those books all look awesome. I’m entered into contests for many of them. Like you, I’m dying to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I bought it, but unfortunately for me, I have too many books that need to be reviewed ahead of that one *pouts*

    Hope you enjoy it!

  34. Janus Vielle Aragones

    Oooh, this is the first time I’ve seen some of those books you received to review, except for Dark Eden. Cicada has an awesome cover.
    Great haul, Giselle.

    Thanks for stopping by my IMM. Happy reading!
