Week in Review & IMM


So, this won't be formatted well. I'm blogging from my phone since my computer is still broken.

This, of course, means I haven't done many features or reviews lately!  I just realized I can still do IMM with pictures from my phone.  I can also do mini flash reviews, which I'd been planning to do anyway, based around books I read a while ago and never got a chance to review!  So I'll try that out from my phone this week (and will apologize now for any typos...no clue how to spellcheck via phone!)

I did, however participate in a Giveaway Hop!  You have until tonight to enter to win lightly used (by me only) ARC copies of two amazing January debut novels, EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton, and INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows (which was one of my Top 3 reads of 2011!!!)  Enter here!

And to try to keep a semblance of normalcy in template...it's not as fancy, but...

GIVEAWAYS:

INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows
EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton
**Check back with A Backwards Story tomorrow for a special giveaway and contest! *zips lips*

READING NOW:

THE RIVALS by Daisy Whitney
(But I'll probably be done before this post goes live and reading either WINTERLING by Sarah Prineas or UNDER THE NEVER SKY by Veronica Ross!  Haven't decided which of the two yet!)

READ IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS:

(Maybe not in order...and may be forgetting stuff...because seriously, did I really only ready three books? Goodreads is harder to keep up with because it doesn't always load properly on my phone!)

*ALLEGIANCE by Cayla Kluver (Didn't love as much as LEGACY, sadly!)
*CANDLEWAX by C. Bailey Sims (Yes, finally finished!  For fans of Kristin Cashore!)
*EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton

RECEIVED IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS:

(It's too much work to do Goodreads links from my phone.  Sorry!!)

Also, here's a picture.  I'm also going to attempt to upload a (potentially crappy) phone-cam video to YouTube, but no promises!




Last Week:
*HALLOWED by Cynthia Hand [Purchased; previously read as e-ARC thanks to HarperTeen and NetGalley]
*FATED by Sarah Alderson [Imported from Book Depository from the UK; no US release date]
*LEFT NEGLECTED by Lisa Genova [Bargain Book]
*PARTIALS by DanWells [ARC from work]
This Past Week:
*EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton [Purchased; previously read as ARC (currently giving away) from HarperTeen]
*HEAVEN by Christoph Marzi [Imported from Book Depository from the UK; no US release date; originally written in German and translated into English]
*FORTUNE'S FOLLY by Deva Fagan [Bargain Book]
*EMBRACE by Jessica Shirvington [ARC from work]

And I surprised myself because the video DID upload...but the quality isn't as great!

What did you get this week?  Hopefully for the next IMM, I'll have the computer up and running again! *fingers crossed*

  1. Nice haul. I was supposed to be on the Embrace tour. Never heard anything from the publisher. Just emailed them too. So hoping that I enjoy Embrace. Everneath is beautiful. The cover is breathtaking. Come visit me as well.

  12. Ahhh, Hallowed was sooo sad! The Sads is almost unbearable. Never thought I'd love angel books again until Cynthia Hand *lol* I have Hunting Lila at home and depending how I like it, I'll go after Fated.

    AHSLKJDFHLKJSDH';'1 AHHH, PARTIALS & EMBRACE, TOO?!?! That's so awesome and I'm jelly of your having copies. Everneath has a gorgeous cover and that one really came across as sad as well.

    Oh, noes, I hope everything works out with your computer! I'd be devastated! :(

    Have an amazing reading week!
