IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is a way for book bloggers to post what they have received for review, borrowed from a friend, bought at the bookstore, or picked up at the library!
The last IMM I posted was all the way back in November! Yeah, it is safe to say the holidays definitely got in the way but I am hoping to keep up with the weekly IMMs from now on. Since I missed almost two full months, this IMM is going to be a lot of craziness! Let’s take a look at what I got!!!

Fitz and the Tantrums
Foster The People
The Summer Set

From Alexa @ AlexaLovesBooks
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
Chocolates & a card!
My Thoughts: Alexa is one freaking awesome book blogger (and not just because she sent me a super sweet gift!) She never fails to make my days brighter and the day I got this lovely package in the mail was no different. My brother managed to eat both chocolate bars she sent me but I am sure they were delicious! The card was so dang sweet and I cannot wait to read these books!
From Laci @ LovePassionBooks
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
A Taylor Swift card!
My Thoughts: Laci completely surprised me for my birthday! She saw it was my birthday on Twitter and offered to send me two books. I was stunned and so thankful when I got these two in the mail. Plus, she just knows me so well, she got a TAYLOR SWIFT birthday card!!! This made me smile big time :)
From Cyndi @ Dog-Eared and Bookmarked
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Twilight Saga journal set
A Winter Song CD
Water For Elephants Soundtrack
A Christmas Song CD
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Soundtrack
A hand-made scarf & a card!!!
My Thoughts: Cyndi is so full of amazing, I wish I could just hug her! She had been teasing me on Twitter for FOREVER about the gift she was sending me and when it finally got here I cried. Seriously. She was so extremely generous and thoughtful with her gift, it totally made my day!
From Jamie Manning @ Writers Write, Right?
A singed Eternal Starling bookmark from Angela Corbett
My Thoughts: I am not entirely sure how I got this or even why, but hey it is a gorgeous, signed bookmark; I am NOT complaining!
From my Dad and Stepmom:
A New Bookshelf
Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman
Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski
New stationary so I can write letters to all of my blogging friends!
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Tenth Avenue North
My Thoughts: I love my dad and stepmom so much! They spoiled me on my birthday and Christmas and I couldn’t be happier :)
From my Mom:
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
My Thoughts: It may have taken a while to convince my mom that it was actually okay to buy me books for Christmas but once she finally understood, she made an excellent decision! I can’t wait to continue on with this series.
From my Grandma:
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
$25 gift card to Barnes & Noble
My Thoughts: My grandma also did good with the book choice this year! I haven’t read the first of The Infernal Devices but when I do, I now have the second to immediately follow-up with!
Plain White T’s
The All-American Rejects
My Thoughts: Last time I asked for an All-American Rejects CD from my grandma, she got me an Alter Bridge CD. They are COMPLETELY different! I was so happy she could find the right ones this time around!
From my Aunts & Uncles:
Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens
My Thoughts: I am thrilled I got an awesome book and bookmarks but I am even more thrilled that I now have my very own Nook! I was very adamant that I would hate an e-reader, but I now love having one! Go figure!
So that’s a ton of great books that I got the past couple of months! Since it is going to take a lot of time to read those, I am officially putting myself under a book buying ban. It should be interesting to say the least. Don’t forget to leave a link to your IMM post in the comment section and I will be sure to check it out!
