    I need to read City of Lost Souls. It seems like everyone has that series on their blogs so it must be good. And yay for Divergent! I just got the second book in the mail this week and I was so excited. Haven’t heard of any of the other books you got, but they look good. Wander Dust sounds interesting. Enjoy your books!

    I’ve heard so much about Wander Dust and a lot of people have been raving about Darynda Jones’ series!! And yay for Divergent! Awesome haul 😀 Happy reading <33

  4. Julie @ Manga Maniac Cafe says:

    Wow! Not only did you get some great looking books, you are tearing through them with amazing speed. I envy your accomplishment of already knocking over 100 books from your TBR. Wow! I hope you are enjoying them 🙂

  5. Ashley says:

    Great books this week! I keep seeing The Girl of Fire and Thorns everywhere, but I can’t decide if it really sounds like a book I’d enjoy. I’d love to know what you think after you finish it. As for Lover Reborn – awesome! But I’ll admit, I’m so far behind on that series. I’ve only read the first book. I loved it, but just never picked up the others. I’ll have to get on that! You also got some great gift books! I’m sure you’ll really enjoy them all 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my post!

  6. Maria says:

    Oh you got Black Dagger Brotherhood book! 🙂 I remember i made the pre order of it 3 months before the actually release! Oups talking about love for the series!

    Great IMM and thanks for dropping by at mine too 🙂

  7. Joy Chuah says:

    OMG! You have such an awesome IMM this week. I’m so jealous. There are so many titles there that I want. I have Lover Reborn too and have been wanting it since it came out but only got it like a month after the release date. Haven’t read it yet though. Haha.
    Have a happy reading week.
    Cheers.
    My IMM

    Awww, your hubby and your kids are so sweet — they know that a book blogger’s best present is a stack of books! 😉 (Trust me, my parents are the same way LOL!) City of Lost Souls is made of epicness, and Divergent was one of my favourite reads of last year just like Insurgent is one of my faves of this year — which makes sense, right?

    Awesome showcase this week, Dani! I hope you enjoy them all! <3

  11. Megan Blackwell says:

    Thanks for visiting my post! You need to read Divergent like right now, it was such an amazing book! Other than Divergent, you got a lot of great books. I’m seeing The Mortal Instruments series like everywhere, I need to start reading it really soon! Hope you enjoy everything and happy reading! 🙂

  12. Becki @ TheFlutterbyRoom says:

    Brilliant haul! It looks like you’ve got some great books. The cover of WANDER LUST looks sooooo pretty! Looks like you had a great Mother’s Day gift. Hope you enjoy reading them all. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and sorry for the late commenting on yours.
