IMM is a weekly meme from Kristi from The Story Siren.
For this week, I was lucky enough to have received awesome books for review, gifts, and from the library. No purchases this week, and I have to admit, I'm actually proud of myself for not getting anything. Haha. I also was going to do do a vlog, but decided to do this short video instead.

Books in the video:

The God of The Hive by Laurie R. King
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick - from Life After Jane
The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
The Magician: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott
Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert
East by Edith Pattou
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

Song used:
Everybody by Ingrid Michaelson

Have you read any of these? What did you think of them? And I'd love to see your IMM posts as well. Link them if you'd like :)


  1. The only one I read was HUSH HUSH. I thought it was okay - I wasn't crazy about the way she portrayed angels...but it was a quick, fun read, and I bet you'll like it!

  2. I love the Vlog and i love the song too, including the one for announcing the giveaway last few weeks. =)

  3. What a wonderfully colourful pile of books you received this week - I just love beautiful book covers, don't you! Great b'day presents! And that song, never heard of it before, but putting it on my iTunes wishlist straight away!

    Here's my IMM:
