This IMM features the books I've received in the past 5 weeks. Huge thanks to the lovely Rachel for surprising me with a signed copy of one of my fave books Froi of the Exiles! She was able to see Melina Marchetta at an event in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, which sounded completely awesome. Thank you so much, Rachel! Froi is now on my super special shelf. :)

Some of the review books featured in this post I have already reviewed: Sanctum, Liquid Lies, and Ferragost. I completely loved Sanctum! I highly recommend it, especially if you're interested in YA urban fantasy with a kickass heroine and romance. Ferragost is a short story in Review of Australian Fiction, and if you love Melina Marchetta's Lumatere Chronicles, you should definitely read it!

I'm almost done with Deviants so expect a review soonish. And I can't wait to get started on Otherkin, Passion Blue, and Stitch! Stitch is actually for a blog tour I'm participating in. The blog tour has already begun (full schedule here), and my tour post will be posted on October 21.

That's about it for now. Have a great weekend! :D

  2. You have Holier Than Thou?? I am SO envious. ;) I hope you like it, as the reviews have been excellent and I've noticed quite a few superb novels being published as "New Adult" this year. :) Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

    1. I'm loving the NA genre. And I liked most of HTT! It brought a big reaction out of me near the end though. I guess I would consider that a good thing, no matter how I felt. ;)

  5. Okay I am literally dying with ENVY over Passion Blue, especially because it has a Megan Whalen Turner blurb.

    Happy reading :-)
