  1. Those look like some great books! Thank you so much for mentioning Mistletoe Magic! Have a wonderful week. :)

  2. Congrats on winning The Godmothers books!

  3. I’m really excited about Taken!

  4. Fantastic book haul, Kimba! I’ll definitely be looking forward to your review for Taken. I’ll also probably sign up for march TBR thing, just need to see how I do it on my own first ;) Have a lovely week and enjoy all your books!

  5. Great haul! There’s definitely a few there that I’ve been debating on if I want to read them ahah The TBR pile challenge sounds like fun, I’ll be travelling then so that might be a good time to put a dent in my TBR pile (:

    Here’s my IMM at Bookmunchies

  6. I love how your haul is so eclectic just like mine :)

  7. You book haul looks great. The Katie Lane sounds really good. Enjoy the week!

  8. I agree about the Scotland cover..i just had to have it..LOL

  9. Taken! *squees*

    Whoa, you won a full series! Awesome!

  10. Thanks Danielle I am looking forward to all these different genres..LOL

  11. Sweet glad you joined, I made it for March so that people could plan ahead and review ARC’s around it. Did you request Taken? I think its on netgalley.

  12. You got Taken? The Taken that’s been my WoW twice? *cries* I’m not your friend out of book jealousy! lolz
    I went gaga over Breathe and it was a kinda DNF for me. I’ll go back to it and see if its a total dnf’er.
    my books r from Halloween till now. I’m glad feed burners alive and well. I heard it was extinct. I’m glad, I don’t want a new one till necessary. Feedcats good though.
    I joined ur tbr event ツ wish it were sooner! I fell asleep but my walking dead alarm woke me.
    Ur Fern Michael’s prize rocks too ツ
    looks like everyone’s getting visits tomorro
    good night ☆♡

  13. Actually it works ok for me, as my daughter works the morning shift and I get up with her and my hubby sleeps in till 9, it’s his Sunday thing…LOL

  14. Well it is actually okay if I remember to add my link when the post goes up at ten pm my time but the other problem with that is by the time I get to my blog I have 20 comments and I am behind. Sundays sometimes are hard blogging days because weekends are devoted more to family time so don’t change it on account of me. You might find it easier on you if you make it live a little earlier on Saturday night then you don’t have so many comments to follow up on the next morning.

  15. Great Challenge idea! I hope to join in the readathon!

  16. Cool. Maybe I should put the Sunday Post up on Saturday afternoon or Saturday around 9pm? Thoughts?

  17. SO jealous of Taken! I’m dying to read it, can’t wait to see your thoughts on it. And I’m starting The Darkest Minds soon, I hear it’s FANTASTIC – hope you love it!

    Happy reading!

  18. Awesome Cyn would love to have you join in the fun :)

  19. you too and I think what you are doing is wonderful <3

  20. i hadn’t heard of what happens in scotland. i’ll keep an eye out for it.

  21. It looks delightful doesn’t it I am looking forward to it :)

  22. I got Taken too! :) A Murder at Rosmund’s Gate looks INTRIGUING!

    Have a good week lady!

  23. Oh you can still be moody with your picks so long as you already own the book..LOL

  24. I want Taken….and I love that cover of Shadow Lands. I may join the TBR challenge, but I’m such a mood reader….it would be a tough one for me LOL.

  25. Such a fabulous haul! Can’t wait to read your reviews for these! Happy Sunday :D

  26. Agreed, and tickled pink you picked up Cupid’s Christmas.

  27. It’s so awesome that you won a whole series! Now if you love it a lot you can just power right through without having to rush to get the next book. I got Cupid’s Christmas this week, so my review should be up in a few weeks. I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

  28. enjoy kim

  29. totally agree with you on that score and I so hope they deliver after the Undeadly debacle .

  30. I can’t wait to see what you think of The Darkest Minds (which has had great reviews so far!) and Shadow Lands. The covers for those too are brilliant.


  31. I know I keep forgetting to add my link and being on the West Coast I am always behind everyone else. I am looking forward to the Christmas book you have scheduled for next week. I need some cute Christmas books. This past reading week just was bad for me. Sigh. I just got approved for Taken as well and hoping for a good read. Oh and I have Ella and Micha scheduled for Fire and Ice with Jessica!

  32. I’ve come to the sad conclusion that I’m not a huge fan of dystopia. It’s kind of a bummer b/c there’s so many books that everybody raves about that just won’t flip my switch. Total bummer!! Like Taken – that cover is absolutely stunning! I’d buy it for the cover alone.

    So many great books this week – I’d love to see where you keep all these books!!!!! Seriously!!!! :D

    Have a great week!!

  33. thank you Yvonne I am looking forward to that one :)

  34. O,o would love to have you join us and thank you :)

  35. I am so excited about that one and think I may have seen it on NetGalley.

  36. A Murder at Rosamund’s Gate looks awesome!!! I’ll have to check this one out. :) Enjoy!

  37. Someone got a bunch of awesome books :D Enjoy!

  38. I agree but what is with all the birds on book covers i missing something?

  39. Shadow Lands looks interesting…I might have to to look into getting myself a coy! :-)

  40. An awesome haul :) Taken & Shadow Lands are high on my wishlist – I am sooooo excited for these books & can’t wait for your reviews.

    Have a great week & happy reading!

  41. I like the cover of Taken and The Darkest Minds sounds good, too! Enjoy these books :)
