IMM #23 / STS #18

IMM Info @ The Story Siren
****Happy Dance****
I had an AMAZING Week!!!
First off, my bday started off the week alright... So I turned a year *Younger* Wink wink ;)
That's what I've been telling everyone anyways. Ha.
With that in mind - Don't forget!
Go enter my birthday bash giveaway!
I'm giving away Ebooks, tons of swag I've collected
AND an Amazon Giftcard!
I didn't get any books for my birthday in particular, but I was able to snag a few otherwise!
So first off...I'm so excited to report this... I won an ARC of the novel she's working on now - WIDE AWAKE! PLUS a  KINDLE FIRE & 4 EBOOKS from the Fabulous Shelly Crane! Eeeeek!! Yes, you heard me right! I'm super excited about this! Seriously doing happy dances since I found out! ^_^
I received it in the mail today! Amazing way to start off my weekend!
She also sent me signed bookmarks for Significance & Wide Awake!!!
That's big for you because I love to share so I'll have some up for grabs soon! ^_^

Eeeeek!!! So happy!!
What 4 ebooks did she send you ask? Well let me tell you!!!

Eeek! I'm super excited to start reading! I actually already started reading Beauty From Pain. I couldn't help myself! LoL I have had a post-it on my desk over 2 weeks now because a co-worker has been reading it and said I would love it! (It's really good too! I'm over halfway through it & LOVE it!)
So what else did I grab this week??
Just fyi guys & gals - The whole series is on sale for $.99 right now!
Get them! I think the sale is over today & then it goes back up to the regular price.
Received Via NetGalley:
That's right - you read it right! The Eden TRILOGY! Keary Taylor recently told us all via her blog that she's hitting unpublished on "Eden" because it's been renamed "The Bane" and being released as book 1 of a new trilogy! Eeek! I'm excited for Keary Taylor!
So I was perusing Facebook - stalking a few of my fave authors & a few up & coming authors I'm following ;) - and found some super exciting news!!!!!
Stealing Harper by Molly McAdams is set to release June 4, 2013!!!!
(I'm already planning to take like the entire week off of work so I can mourn my loss AGAIN LoL)
Forgiving Lies by Molly McAdams is set to release October 29, 2013!!!!

I have one and it's fantastic, but here in Australia I can't use all the features that they have, bummer, but it is still awesome. I have a few of your purchases, but haven't gotten to read them yet, hopefully soon and I can't wait to read your thoughts on them all. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  9. Congrats on Kindle Fire, that's an awesome win! :) I read 'Poison Princess' some time ago, it was original and interesting ya post-apocalyptic novel. I saw 'The Bane' on Netgalley too, but I still did not request it since I am overflowing with review books. But it does sound so good... Great haul, I hope you enjoy them all. :)
    Thanks for stopping by my IMM.

      Yea, I'm interested to dig into the Bane. I never got the chance to read the original version but from what I've read, only a few names and descriptions have really changed.

      Thank you!!!
