IMM is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and it’s a chance to show off all the books we bought, borrowed or won in the past week. Most of mine will be borrowed as I have an AMAZING local library with a fabulous inter-library loan system (I can essentially get any book I like within a week at the most) so unless otherwise noted, just assume borrowed.

I ended up with another huge pile from the library this week, and I am so excited to get started reading them (as soon as I finish the ones from last week, of course…)

Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman – Not my usual, but I’ve heard some good things. In fact, it’s the unusual-ness of this story that drew me to it in the first place.

Geektastic edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci – I’ve been wanting to read this one since it came out but just kept forgetting to put it on hold.

Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder – I just finished the second in the Study series (Magic Study) and I loved it so much that I needed to give this one a try.

Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs – This one was on my original to-read list for last year’s Debut Author Challenge. I ended up reading so many extra debuts that this one got missed, but that doesn’t mean I’m looking forward to it any less!

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White – I really need to start just ordering things when I think of them, because this is another I’ve been desperate for for ages and just never got around to putting on hold.

Clarity by Kim Harrington – It wasn’t until I started to hear people talking about anticipating the second book in this series that I really started wanting to read this one. I’m still a little iffy on it – I’m not sure I’d have picked it up on my own – but enough people have encouraged me to try it that I’m willing to keep an open mind.

That’s it for this week. Not quite as many as last week, but I still have a few left over, so that should keep me going for a while :) Happy reading!

    I've wanted to read Clarity for ages now!
    Paranormalcy is just a fantastic book, it's funny, light hearted and a refreshing change from some of the typical paranormal YA out there.

    Enjoy your books, Great IMM! :)

    Nice IMM! I have Paranormalcy on my shelf, but still haven't gotten to it. Happy reading!

    I went through a major Maria V Snyder phase after I read (and loved) Poison Study. I flew through the rest of that series. The 'Glass series' is good too, I just didn't think it was as great.

    Touch of Power is fantastic! Every bit as good as Poison Study. Hope you like it :)

    Confession time: I accidentally mixed up Paranormalcy and Supernaturally… I started reading the back of the book and realized I'd already read it and meant to get book 2! Oops! But I did love it the first time around, perhaps I'll reread it while I've got it.
