On My Shelf (IMM) #18 : The ' PRETTIES!!!!' Edition


On My Shelf

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (an AWESOME blogger) and is a post for bloggers to share what books they've received to review, bought, won, borrowed or were gifted during the week.

But I call it: On My Shelf! Because... well... I don't receive many books In My Mailbox, so... yeah :D

So, this week I got 15 books! YAY! I bought 8, got 4 from the library, won 2 from giveaways (and got some swag) and got 1 for review!

At first, I was going to post a vlog. I did it at my friend's house, and she participated in it (it was my guest from last week), but the video just... went sh*t. No, really, the audio wouldn't go with the image! So, instead, I took some pictures of my books!

From the Library :
Fury by Elizabeth Miles
* I've read it and The Second Summer is GREAT!*
Fang by James Patterson
*I've read it... and OH GOSH, I love Fang!*
Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrians

Won in a Giveaway :

Partials by Dan Wells, thanks to Miss Vain's Paranormal Fantasy
Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers, thanks to the author

For Review:
Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins, thanks to Hachette Book Group Canada

Bought :

doesn't appear on the picture because I lent it to my friend: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout 


Here's my video :D

Leave a meaningful comment with your IMM link, and I'll be sure to check it :D


  1. Great IMM! I seriously have got to get around to reading Delirium and Pandemonium - seems like I'm the only one in the blogging community who hasn't read them yet! And yay for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - those books are so cute. Hope you enjoy your books :)

  2. Oh yay! I loved Starters and Pandemonium. Both books are intense like whoaaaaa.

    Happy reading :-D

    My IMM

  3. WOW, holy great reads this week. I don't think I see a book I don't want. I want Starters and Partials badly. I hope you have fun reading them all!

    Happy Sunday!

  4. Great haul, Cat!
    :D Bloodlines; yeaaah ^^
    I would kill to have Partials, Pandemonium, Incarnate and Starters! I just LOVE the cover of Incarnate ♥

    My IMM

  5. Great mailbox! I LOVED INCARNATE! Partials was pretty good as well, and so was Spellbound. I hope you enjoy all of your books this week!

    My IMM

  6. I'm almost crying looking at all these books! I want your copies of Pandemonium, Incarnate, Starters, Partials, Spellbound, and Lisa Desrochers books. Please? XD

    It's horrible. I read some of the books you got, too. Hope you enjoy Bloodlines as much as I did! (Kiss of Crimson.. Is that the first Breedsmates novel or another one? I thought the first few were much better than the latest two or three installments. *g*)

    Happy Reading!

  7. I love Fang as well! I kind of wished there was more of him in the book though! You need to read Angel and let me know what you think! I'm a little scared Max is going to end up with Dylan instead of Fang (SOBS) Enjoy your goodies!

    My IMM:

  8. Partials looks really cool! Enjoy everything :)

  9. Congratulations on your book giveaways. I was particularly intrigued as well by the last three books that you shared (Pandemonium, Incarnate, and Starters) - I've been seeing them around lately in quite a number of mailboxes and I've been wondering about how they're like. I'm glad to note that you've linked to your reviews, it would be great to read about what you thought of them. Have fun with all your other new reads.

    Here's mine over at GatheringBooks:

  10. Oh shizzlenits, you got an awesome reading pile! :o I've been wanting to read BLOODLINES for a while (I need more of the VA world!) and I have INCARNATE waiting to be read in my room. :3

    Happy reading!

  11. Wow you got a lot of great books! I want Starters, Partials, Spellbound...

    Happy reading

  12. This is one awesome IMM! Fury I enjoyed, didn't love, but definitely liked. Loved Pandemonium. I've got my eye on Spellbound, Incarnate, Starters and Sisters Red and Partials, hope to pick them up soon. :-)~
    Thanks for stopping by My IMM

  13. So many pretty books! I'm feeling rather green over here, haha. Awesome haul! Old follower :)

  15. Wow! Really awesome IMM. So many great books in that pile. And congrats on your wins!!!
    Happy Reading :)

  16. Wow awesome mailbox! I'm dying for Starters! That cover is so pretty. Also -- Partials! Another one I need to grab.

    My IMM

  17. Wow looks like you got a lot of books! The only ones I recognize are Starters, Spellbound and Pandemonium. I'm checking out the other ones now. I like how you have the titles linked to goodreads. It makes it a lot easier for the viewers to see what the books about. I'm going to have to start doing that. My IMM

  18. So many amazing books! I really need to read starters, I have heard so many great things about it! Happy reading!!

    My IMM

  20. Oh my gosh, you have Spell Bound!!! You're so lucky -- my copy still hasn't arrived at my house yet and I've been waiting not-so patiently for my chance to be able to read more Archer LOL. x) And Bloodlines IS awesome! I think I liked it much better than the first book of VA at least! Plus, I love the cover for Starters too -- it's so shiny!! <3

    Amazing mailbox this week! I hope you enjoy all of the fantastic-looking and sounding books that you have! :)

  21. Lots of awesome books this week!! Ah Partials was a great read! Incarnate was a cute read too. ENJOY!

  29. I hope you enjoy Fang. I really liked it but i'm not sure how I felt about the ending if i'm remembering the right ending! There's so many of those books =) I also finished Pandemonium last week and I really liked everything except the cliff hanger! You can check out my review if you like. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week! Here's my IMM!
