IMM: My May + June in Books

I’ve been meaning to do an IMM post for weeks… more specifically my “May in Books” post. But May is long gone, and June almost is, too. So instead of keeping this on hold for next week (which is going to be INSANE since my research paper is in and it’s time for endless presentations and dissertations and lectures and what-not until my time is overrr!) I’m getting this in now! As always this is brought to you by Kristi (who got it from Alea)! =)

Books Received

I call it the "EEEK! CAN'T BELIEVE I WON THIS!" bookshelf.

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side – Beth Fantaskey (signed hardcover) Thanks to YA Reads Forum and Beth Fantaskey!

Silver Phoenix – Cindy Pon (signed ARC + bookmark) Thanks to Yan and Cindy Pon!

My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters – Sydney Salter (signed paperback and awesome charm bracelet) Thanks to Yan and Sydney Salter!

Kiss of Life – Daniel Waters (hardcover) from IB Teen Book Blog!

At Face Value – Emily Franklin (paperback + Love You Hate You Miss You insert) from Elizabeth Scott!

Death by Denim – Linda Gerber (signed paperback + bookmark) from Linda Gerber!

Willow – Julia Hoban (hardcover) from Steph Su

If I Stay – Gayle Forman (hardcover) from Steph Su

Perfect Fifths – Megan McCafferty (hardcover) from Steph Su (have I mentioned how much I love her?)

Going Too Far; The Boys Next Door; Major Crush – all by Jennifer Echols (signed paperbacks) Thanks to Carol and Jennifer Echols!

I just wanted to point out the formats so you could all see how generous people have been. It isn’t easy or cheap shipping out books to where I am, and I know I made a lot of people poorer just for the sake of my entertainment. So a HUGE collective thank you to everyone on this list for being so amazing!!!

Flowers in the Attic – V.C. Andrews [Sigh. Yeah, I did.]

What Happens Here – Tara Altebrando

Swoon – Nina Malkin

Madapple – Christina Meldrum (eeeek! I’m so glad this is finally here!!!)

Vampire Academy – Richelle Mead (my friend brought me all three as a gift for introducing her to Twilight last year. lol!)

Frostbite – Richelle Mead

Shadow Kiss – Richelle Mead

Strange Angels – Lili St. Crow (gave in and bought the e-book – couldn’t wait anymore!)

Broken Soup – Jenny Valentine

The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffeneger [This month’s present for my sister]

Paradise – Judith McNaught

Perfect – Judith McNaught

Night Whispers – Judith McNaught

Someone to Watch over Me – Judith McNaught

A Kiss in Time – Alex Flinn

One Fifth Avenue – Candace Bushnell

A fantastic two months in books, don’t you think? Of course, now I’m severely behind on reading, not to mention poor and downtrodden and I need to find another source of income… but hey! I love every moment of it!

PS. I’m moving countries again soon… and I really need to get rid of some of the stuff on my bookshelf. Which means GIVEAWAYS!!! Keep checking back! =D
