IMM #25 / STS #19

IMM Info @ The Story Siren
STS Info @ Tynga's Reviews

Well, this week has felt a little rushed for me... I guess since I was sick all of last week... I'm about a week behind on my reviews now since I didn't get to read for an entire week. I know a week doesn't seem like much but when you read as many books as I do in 1 week, it makes a huge difference. I HATE feeling pressured when I'm reading... That's the only downfall to blogging and accepting reviews. I like to be punctual... so when I'm not or I'm close to the deadline, I tend to stress. >_< Hate That! Authors are the best though! They completely understand when it takes a little longer but I hold myself accountable to the deadlines that I set. I think I'm more irritated with myself than they are. Ha. :)

Anyone else feel like that some times? How do you cope?

I think I may start limiting the review requests that I accept to 2 a month, review tours 2 a month, and then otherwise, it's me and my books of choice or books from NetGalley...

We'll see... I'm still pondering, LoL. Any advice is helpful :)

Now on the to this week's goods!!!


Hopeless @ Amazon for $.99 Right now!

Cautious @ Amazon for $2.99

 So this book takes me back to when I read Tolkien all of the time... I've never read any novel like this but it's really intriguing so I couldn't help but accept this review. I can't wait to dig in. Go check out the synopsis on Amazon.

Eeek I was so excited! When I was sick I received a fabulous email from Shawntelle Madison saying I won this giveaway on her blog!! It was definitely a great pick me up when H & I were so sick! Thank you Shawntelle & Alexandra!!!! 

 So that's what I received this week! What did you guys get?!?! I love this meme so much because I get introduced to more books this way than any other! You guys always have so many new books that I've not heard of or I'm able to see a trend! I can always tell when a book ends up being a must-have because several of you end up getting it! <3

Alrighty - I'm off to go randomly select & verify a winner for my birthday blast giveaway! :)


  1. Wounded was a wonderful book. I had the good fortune to read it for a tour & it was awesome. Come visit me as well.


  2. I know you've probably heard this a million times, but Hopeless is incredible. I absolutely adored it. Definitely recommend getting to that one soon if you haven't already. And after reading so many people's review on Wait for You and lusting over it for a few dozen blogs, I finally bought it. I'm glad you like it.

    Here's my haul

    1. P.S. I'm a new GFC follower. Feel free to follow back if you want to. :)

  3. LOL. I read Wait for You in one day, too. I liked it, but not as much as the Lux series. Kind of in love with Cam, but I also still love Daemon!

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies. Happy reading :)

  4. I love your button for STS and IMM :) I really should create one myself.

    Here's my STS

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Great haul this week. I know what you mean about pressure, I do it myself all the time, can't help myself when I see so many fantastic books around. I have stopped accepting review requests for the moment, but have signed up for some tours. I am going to cut back on them all too, doing guest posts or interviews instead. I usually tell the author if I'm delayed. I have Hopeless on my TBR list, but haven't gotten a chance to read it yet, have heard it is fabulous though. Congrats on your win, always a good way to get cheered up. Hope you are both better now. Thanks for sharing and happy reading.

Thanks for stopping by & chatting with me! I try my best to respond to every post but it does take me a few days! Don't think I'm ignoring you - I promise, "non-fiction" life just gets me bogged down sometimes. :) Thanks again!!! I <3 my followers
