Several weeks worth of IMM here. I've been ill with the flu, and just haven't been up to it. So this is catch up from before Christmas until now.

For review:

The 13 Secrets by Michelle Harrison - S&S
I have all three of these books now, but haven't yet started them. I know, I know, bad Jo! But they do look really good, I'm looking forward to reading them all.

Mortal Kiss by Alice Moss - Random House
I actually read this while it was an online story on Stardoll. It was quite good. I've already reviewed it, read it here.

Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan - Hodder & Stoughton
I already have an ARC of this, but now I have a lovely hardback! It's so gorgeous! Looking forward to reading it! :)

Ghost of a Chance by Rhiannon Lassiter - OUP
This sounds very spooky by intriguing! I'm looking forward to reading it.

Witchfinder: Gallows of Twilight by William Hussey - OUP
I am so excited to read this book! I loved the first book in the series, so I'm really looking forward to finding out what happens next!

Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder - Mira Ink
This sounds so good! I am really looking forward to reading this! I've heard so many good things about this book!

Calling for Angels by Alex Smith - The Red Telephone
I'm liking angels lately, so I thought I would give this a go. We'll see.

Siren by Tricia Rayburn - Faber & Faber
This book sounds absolutely amazing! I've not read a mermaid/siren novel before, so I am just sooo excited to read this!

Bought:

Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane
Ever since I started blogging over on Livejournal in 2008 (before I switched to blogger) and I watched Fangs, Fur and Fey, an urban fantasy author's discussion community, I've always wanted to read Stacia Kane's novels. I loved reading her posts on the group, and her books sounded so intriguing! So when I saw Unholy Ghosts on sale at a bargain price - the first time I had actually seen (or possibly noticed) any of Stacia Kane's novels on sale in a bookshop - I had to snap it up! Really looking forward to reading it! This will be reviewed on Ink and Paper.

Gifted:

I entered Holly Schindler's Flash Fiction Challenge last year. I didn't win, but Holly wanted to send me something anyway, so the lovely lady sent me this bookmark with the lovely note!
