Gifted:

Slated (Book 1) –  Teri Terry – from Gail @ Ticket to Anywhere

Bought:

24 Days of Tea! from DAVIDsTEA – was going to link so you can buy your own, but I think it’s sold out, because it’s not on their site anymore! They do have other awesome holiday stuff, though!

It might only be the first week of November, but I’ve got the Christmassy Craving and have broken out my Christmas mug. It’s cold, I want it to snow and I am supposed to be writing a research paper – so what better way to start my day than with an IMM vlog!

And as much as I’d love to procrastinate even more and look at other blogs this morning – I have to get my bottom in gear and get to that paper! School Work Sunday I call it. (Ugh.)

Felt the need to prove that I still existed, live and in person. Also, I got books in the mail from a friend this week and wanted to show them off. 😉

  • Sleuth or Dare #1: Partners in Crime
  • Sleuth or Dare #2: Sleepover Stakeout

Thanks to William Morrow Paperbacks (Harper Collins), I received a book from one of my favourite urban fantasy authors for review!

I also bought some books from Book Depository!

People mentioned:

April @ Good Books & Good Wine (Her reviews often make me NEED a book. She’s the reason I bought Code Name Verity!)

I’m getting to the point where I am buying way more books than I am reading. I  need to stop with the buying and get on the reading. Sadly, you need TIME for reading, whereas buying books takes like, zero time. Will try to read more this weekend. I’m embarrassingly behind in my Books Read GR challenge. *sniff*

In My Mailbox #57 & BEA/NYC Quickie Recap

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

Surprise books in the mail are always fun to get! I got two of those this week from Simon & Schuster Canada!

I had a great time in NYC with my two roommates Kristi and Shanyn. I promise there will be a recap post soon. I am starting my summer 4-day work weeks this week (yay!) so I’ll have a little extra time on weekends to blog and read. Even my reading is suffering, people! I just do not have time for anything anymore. When did that happen?

Also… HOW is it already halfway through June? Seriously! I don’t understand where this year has gone. We’re almost halfway to 2013! Scary.
