I got contacts for the first time on Friday. So my eyes are irritating me. And it puts me in a grumpy mood. So that's why this IMM is late-ish. Good news, my whole week has been made by an awesome person.
R.A.K. July '11 - Special thanks for Liz @ Consumed by Books
Brightly Woven | Alexandra Bracken This is probably one of my favorite books of this year. I haven't gotten it before now because Borders doesn't carry it and I'm one of those people who likes to physically go out and get a book. So I was so psyched to have gotten this in the mail.
Uncommon Criminals | Ally Carter Need I even explain? I have Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls books and I have also read "Heist Society" though I don't own it yet. I need it in hardcover, which Borders ALSO doesn't have.
Borders, as you may know, is going out of business, so they're having Going Out of Business sales. I decided to get books that I'd already read and knew I liked, since Borders now has a No Return policy.
Darkest Powers trilogy | Kelley Armstrong I read this series a while ago but I've been meaning to buy it for some time now. I love Kelley Armstrong's work.
Mercy Thompson series #4 and #5 | Patricia Briggs I have the first three, needed to complete the series. Patricia Briggs is a FANTASTIC writer. I love her work.
The Intellectual Devotional: American History | David S. Kidder & Noah D. Oppenheim This is the world laughing at me. This book gives a one-page summary on important aspects in American History. I needed this for my APUSH class…last year. I probably would have done better on my AP exam. I'm a history nut though, so that's why I picked it up off of clearance.
Delirium | Lauren Oliver I've heard great stuff about this book and I love the idea of love being a disease. I'm about a hundred pages in right now and I'm enjoying it.
Angel Burn | L.A. Weatherly I was drawn to this book in the bookstore when I read the back flap and read about how the author had had one of the main characters in her head for years, originally in a fantasy setting as a thief but now relocated to a modern setting. It sounds really interesting.
Across the Universe | Beth Revis The superior size of this book must be to contain all the awesomeness, because it's about an inch taller than its fellows. I've seen a lot of great things said about this book, and though it didn't seem like quite my thing at first, I think I'll like it.
