Three IMMs back to back? Oh yeah, that's bad, trés BAD, I know and I'm terribly sorry about the inexcusable lack of proper posts round here lately, buuuuut saying that things are hectic doesn't even begin to describe my life right now. I'm way behind on reading (and pretty much everything else, eek) and I miss it so much - y'know, just lying in bed and reading. I haven't done it for too long (honestly, NO time) and I'm like a junkie who needs their fix BADLY. I'll have to take like an evening off someday soon and just read, but I still have so many things to do before then. :(

I've been getting & buying sooooo many amazing books lately and it breaks my heart that I can't read them immediately because I really, really want to, but can't. I will though, I promise, promise!

Here are the goodies I received in the past weeks!


SWEPT OFF HER FEET by Hester Browne - YAAAAY!!! Hester very kindly sent me a lovely signed copy herself, along with a fantastic note! Totally made my week! I loved Hester's previous book The Finishing Touches and I cannot WAIT to read this one! :D
KATE'S WEDDING by Chrissie Manby - Brilliant surprise from Hodder! I featured this in one of my WOW and then it showed up, woohoo!
MEN I'VE LOVED BEFORE by Adele Parks - A surprise copy from Headline. I've already read and reviewed the hardcover (it hit very close to home), but the paperback is SO much prettier! The re-design was certainly a smart move!

That's it from me! What did you get? :)

LOOKING FOR LEON by Shirley Benton - A surprise review copy from Poolbeg. Sounds interesting and looks great, although I wish the title was really sparkly, but otherwise the cover's lovely.
CRYSTAL BALLS by Amanda Brobyn - I fell in love with this cover as soon as I saw it and I can't wait to read it! Thanks for offering a review copy, Amanda!
RSVP by Helen Warner - A surprise review copy from S&S UK. It came wrapped in this blue and brown paper that you can see under the books and the cover was sprinkled with little silver hearts that you can also see above - adorable! I love it when people put in an effort like that! Well done, Ally. ;)
FAKING IT by Lotte Daley - I've been waiting for this book for aaaages and now I finally have it, yay! It sounds fantastic and I wish I could read it NOW, but sadly I have no spare time. :(
GETTING AWAY WITH IT by Julie Cohen - Another book I've been VERY excited about, but decided to wait for the paperback and now I got a surprise review copy from Headline - thank yoooou! I cannot wait to read this - it sounds brilliant, plus LOOK AT THE COVER!!! This is hands down one of my absolute favourite covers EVER! Outstanding! Amazing! Beautiful!
MERMAID by Carolyn Turgeon - Another surprise review copy from Headline! I'm not sure how I feel about novels that feature mermaids, but this one looks interesting ...

That's it from me, what did you get? :)
