I'm Alison. I've been blogging for six months - My six month anniversary was Saturday!. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.
NetGalley is still serving me well...
Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa (I'm almost done. It's great!)
The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
Trickster's Girl by Hilari Bell
I got a bit over-enthusiastic at the library these past two weeks...

Vampire Knight looks so freaking cool! Excellent picks from the library, Alison! Enjoy.ReplyDelete
I want to get Nightshade, but my local bookstore here in the Philippines sell that too expensiveReplyDelete

Great IMM! I really want to read Nightshade and the The Iron King. They are soon to be released in the UK. Can't wait! Happy reading :}ReplyDelete
Happy six-month blogoversary!!ReplyDelete
You got some great books. I love Netgalley too! I haven't seen many reviews for Trickster's Girl so will keep an eye out for that from you!
I'm a Neko Case fan too! She's great!
Great books! I love Net Galley too! I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who walks out of a library with way too many books. :)ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to all your reviews.
Great books! Nightshade was pretty amazing and The Vespertine looks SO good!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy! :)
Great books you got! I loved Nightshade! Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Enjoy your new books!ReplyDelete
Oh nice! You scored big this week! I'm particularly jealous of your copy of Nightshade. Old follower, happy reading!ReplyDelete
Here's my IMM
Yeah Alison! You had a fabulous week, nothing wrong with being over-enthusiastic:) Raised by Wolves was one of my favorite reads of the year, I'll be excited to see what you think of it:) And we can compare notes on Iron Queen, can't wait!ReplyDelete
I have Torment sitting here...*sigh* I need to read it LOL. I need more hrs in the day. I hope you have a great upcoming week and that you enjoy all your books!ReplyDelete
Nightshade is awesome, you're going to love it !! Happy reading !! Thanks for your comment and for following my blog =)ReplyDelete
I need to find some time to check out Nightshade from the library.ReplyDelete
Oh, I never finished reading Fruits Basket. I got up to volume 15. I liked it, but I didn't finish because I already felt like I knew what was going to happen, since I spoiled the ending by reading it online. hehe ^^
Hope you enjoy all your books!
You are just too cool for words (but not only because you're now following my blog lol ;)) as you read Fruits Basket AND Vampire Knight! How awesome are you! We got the same NetGalley books too. NetGalley has it's uses *laughs* and I hope you enjoy Raised by Wolves and Nightshade, I know I did! I bought Torment awhile ago but I haven't had a chance to squeeze it into my reading pile *sighs*. I will definitely try to remember to check out your reviews of these books; I have to know what they're like!
P.S. Again, thanks for following! *pokes follower count on your blog*
the vespertine looks so awesome!! enjoy!ReplyDelete
P.S.S. Congrats on your sixth month anniversary-I hope I make it that far!ReplyDelete
Has it only been 6 months?? It already feels like you're a staple in my GoogleReader! Congratulations to you!ReplyDelete
You chose some amazing books - I still haven't brought myself to read Torment, and I'm embarassed by how long I've had it on my shelf, when people have been clamoring for it for months. (I hang my head in shame)
Looooove the Iron Fey series!!!ReplyDelete
Awesomeness! I was checking reviews of The Vespertine and they make it sounds like a must read. A Julie Kagawa book? Always a great start to the week! Raised By Wolves - I keep meaning to read this! :-) Have a great week.ReplyDelete
Happy six month anniversary! You've got loads of great books this week! I can't wait to read Nightshade! And I love Fruits Basket and Vampire Knight :DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy reading :)
I write it in english why? :SReplyDelete
I'm already your follower :) and thanks for following me now !
Wow you've received some greats books this week ! You're so luckyyyy !!! I can't wait to read The Iron Queen and The Vespertine :).
Happy reading !
Great haul this week! I still haven't tried NetGalley...I think it's time to.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment on my blog! Yeah, I also think that the Melanie Rose books are cute, especially because they match each other so well (the third book: http://queennreading.blogspot.com/2010/10/new-books-22.html)ReplyDelete
You've had a great week according to your IMM. I have several of these books on my list, can't wait to finally get them!
I LOVE your mailbox this week and hope you have loads of fun reading them all. *sigh* I love that cover for Vespertine :)ReplyDelete
You can find my mailbox at The Bookish Snob
I got the Vespertine from Netgalley too. I can't wait to read it. Enjoy your books, they look amazing :)ReplyDelete
The Iron Queen is one that I'd like to read too! The same for Nightshade, thankfully I preordered my copy (I think this is a reprint or something), but at least it's coming my way!ReplyDelete
Love the cover of The Vespertine, looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it!ReplyDelete
AHHH THE IRON QUEEN!! I signed up for Netgalley and got it, but my eyes go wonky after reading the computer screen for too long so I sadly have to wait until it comes out :( I hope you enjoy!!!ReplyDelete
I adore NetGalley! You picked up some fabulous reads from them this week! And from your library! Nightshade was sooo good, and I've been hearing that Raised by Wolves is amazing too! I hope you enjoy all your new reads!ReplyDelete
Thanks for for following!!
Oh ok thanks :). Well I'm a college freshman majoring in english so... And I also took another language in college which is Russian :D !ReplyDelete
Great books and such this week. I love Neko Case. Happy Reading!ReplyDelete
Girl that is one fantastic stash for the Mailbox. Your library rocks with Torment, Nightshade and those Manga books too.ReplyDelete
Aisle B post is up and I got MATCHED!
*whistles* Congratulations, chica, on the huge haul! ^_^ I LOVED "Raised by Wolves". I'm a little sticky on "Torment" myself. I've had it for months and still haven't picked it up once. (For shame, I know.) So good luck with that one.ReplyDelete
Great books this week! :)
Thank you for commenting on my blog!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy all those books!
Wow great haul of books! I heart NetGalley too! :)ReplyDelete
Wow great books. :) I haven't read the Iron Fey series but I jam very excited to get them next week! Thanks for dropping by.ReplyDelete
Great books this week! I absolutely love Netgalley :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy reading!ReplyDelete
Happy 6 months, Alison! :DReplyDelete
I absolutely loved all the books you've received this week. Well, except one. Vampire Academy. But that's just me being... weird. I hate the direction it takes later on in the series, and it's recently gotten plain sloppy and confusing. Blah. Zero ftw. >_< Anyway, enough of my mini-Vampire Knight rant on your blog, lol. Happy readings this week. <3
Love the cover of The Vespertine! Enjoy all your new books!ReplyDelete
Great IMM!!! I also use NetGalley, it's amazing!!ReplyDelete
I love the dress of the girl on The Vespertine. Super pretty! Hope you enjoy your books this week!ReplyDelete
Here's what's in my mailbox this week!
Excellent looking books! Congratulations on your 6 months of blogging :)ReplyDelete
You have some awesome reads. Thanks for stopping byReplyDelete
Great list of goodies. Nightshade was awesome. I hope you enjoy it.ReplyDelete
I went to the library today, but forced myself not to take anything home. The hubby got a game though. I have too much of a TBR pile to be taking books out lol. Great mailbox this week. I need to work on reading more e-books.ReplyDelete
Looks like you got a bunch of great stuff this week! I always tend to go a bit overboard at the library haha. Happy reading :)ReplyDelete
Oh, overenthusiasm at the library. What would we do without you. I've seen NIGHTSHADE and IRON QUEEN popping up everywhere lately! Hope you enjoy them and thanks for the follow. =)ReplyDelete
WOW! You had an awesome week - both book and comments wise, ahaha. I hope you enjoy them all - can't wait to see your reviews :)ReplyDelete
You got some awesome books! I want the Wicked Lovely graphic novel :)ReplyDelete
Julie (Manga Maniac Cafe)
Awesome library stash! I can totally see why you went a bit crazy! Happy reading.ReplyDelete
Great books :) I am going to read the Vespertine as part of a challenge next, so I am curious as to what you will think of it.ReplyDelete
Your books have some amazing covers!ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear you're enjoying Iron Queen! I think I'm the only person on earth that still hasn't read that series! It's sitting on my bookshelf so I really need to start it!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to hear what you think about Nightshade and The Vespertine! :)
Happy 6 months, Alison!ReplyDelete
That's so awesome that you read Fruits Basket! I love that series--definitely one of my all time favorites. Overall, looks like you got a great stash this week!
I'm so glad that you loved and read "Vampire Knight" Vol 1. Have you seen the anime yet? It's fairly faithful to the manga. I'm rereading Vol 1-8 before my library gets 9, 10 and 11. I heart Zero! Can't wait to see your review.ReplyDelete
Gotta love Net Galley! :DReplyDelete
So many great books! I hope you enjoy all of them :)ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed Nightshade and Iron Queen-- hope you do too. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Very nice stuff!ReplyDelete
Awesome books this week. A few of these are on my TBR list. Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy reading!ReplyDelete
NetGalley is awesome. I have to catch up on the series before reading Iron Queen but it sounds great! And The Vespertine looks awesome as well.ReplyDelete
You got a great haul at the library. Nightshade is really good- hope you like it!
Vampire Knight is addictive I hear. Enjoy and happy reading!
Amazing mailbox, Alison! I hope you enjoy The Vespertine...I'm so excited to read your review of it :)ReplyDelete
You've got an awesome mailbox! Enjoy them! Thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
I have The Vespertine as well. Can't wait to read that one.ReplyDelete
And I am waiting on my copy of Nightshade to come in. I've been told, once it does, I won't be albe to put it down.
Hope you enjoy all your books :)
Happy Sixer, Alison! I read and reviewed Nightshade - loved it and hope you do, too!ReplyDelete
-Linds, bibliophile brouhaha
Thanks for stopping by! I loved Raised by Wolves and I cannot wait to read Nightshade! Happy reading!ReplyDelete
So many great books! Wow! I love Fruits Basket! It's one of my favorite manga series. Vespertine sounds really good. I can't wait to read your review!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
I heart NetGalley. I'm reading Delirium from there right now and I also requested The Vespertine.
I love the covers to The Iron Fey series, but I really dislike fairies so I don't know if I could handle reading them.
I hope you enjoy all your books!
Wow great mailbox Alison!ReplyDelete
Hi Alison! Thanks for stopping by my IMM :-)ReplyDelete
Congrats on your 6th month blogiversary!! Here's to amyn more :-)
Great books!! Happy Reading!!ReplyDelete
Wow! You got some amazing books from the library! I LOVED Nightshade!ReplyDelete
Congrats on blogging 6 months!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed visiting yours and am a new follower. I think Vespertine is next on my list of books to read!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my IMM and Top Ten Tuseday Alison!ReplyDelete
I really want to read Verspantine, it looks amazin so I'm looking forward to reading your review.
I agree, it's such a shame about Sara Polley as she was a wonderful actor. She said her heart wasn't in the show anymore. I'm glad that they found a way to ease her character out the main storyline gradually even though it was a bit unnatural. I was upset about the change the actor who played Cecily too, she didn't seem like the same girl anymore! Harmony Cramp made an adorable Cecily. I have to admit I have only read part of The Golden Road, so I will be getting hold of a copy soon.
Happy reading this week :)

I loved Raised by Wolves! So good...ReplyDelete
I'm excited about Vespertine, too, but I was never able to suck it up and buy Raised By Wolves. I don't know what it was...but I think I'm going to try my library system. I've got my fingers crossed.ReplyDelete
