Fins Are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs
Ruby Red by Kerstin Geier
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand*Stayed up until 2 AM Thursday night/Friday morning finishing it. Very powerful.
Oooh awesome stash. I've been meaning to read Ruby Red but I still haven't gotten around to it!ReplyDelete
Some great books this week. Cant wait to hear your reviews on them.ReplyDelete
Please check my IMM tom. I got Fins are Forever a while back but havent had the chance to read it yet.
I'm curious about Ruby Red, but have been a bit irked by time-travel stories lately, so am waiting until I'm in a happier place with that kind of book before attempting it.ReplyDelete
Forgive My Fins turned me off with the too-bright cover. It sounded like you enjoyed that, so hopefully this sequel will be just as good!
I got Ruby Red from my library not that long ago, but didn't have time to actually read it. I'm hoping to soon though. Hope you enjoy it! :)ReplyDelete
I've heard whispers of Fins are Forever. Mermaids seem to be the new paranormal creature of choice. I hope you enjoy.ReplyDelete
I have Ruby Red in my TBR mountain! Can't wait to read it either. But like I said it's a mountain and not sure when I'll get to that one! But I love the cover! Happy Reading!ReplyDelete
My IMM will go up tomorrow, be sure to stop by!
Have a GREAT weekend!

Great mailbox! Super excited for Fins are Forever! Enjoy all of your books!ReplyDelete
I've heard mixed things about Fins are Forever. Not having read it myself, though, I can't really say whether it's a good or bad read. I hope you enjoy it, though!ReplyDelete
(PS, thanks for commenting on my blog!)
I've heard a little about Ruby Red, it sounds pretty good! I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!!ReplyDelete
It's good to get a non YA related book every now and then. I'm glad to find someone who feels the same way :)ReplyDelete
Your library is awesome for carrying Ruby Red. Mine doesn't. Hope you enjoy it!

I have been wanting to read Ruby Red for a while! Isn't the library a wonderful place!? Enjoy! Thanks for checking out my IMM!ReplyDelete
I've heard a lot about Unbroken. Glad to hear you liked it!ReplyDelete
Yay for Ruby Red!!ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed Ruby Red. I hadn't really paid attention to any of the blogosphere stuff about it, so it was a nice surprise. That's the problem with being a blogger sometimes. You don't get to be surprised that often.ReplyDelete
Ruby Red is another one that I almost threw onto my pile today to purchase. While I've seen it mentioned, there really hasn't been any discussion about it. If it's still there the next time I go to Borders it's coming home!ReplyDelete
I got Ruby Red last week. I am excited to read it. The cover is gorgeous. Also, I have been dying to read more of Tera's writing! Happy reading :)ReplyDelete
Great Books here! I need to read Ruby Red... Looks so awesome. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I really want to read Ruby Red. Isn't that cover gorgeous?ReplyDelete
I've heard Ruby Red is really good. And I've been interested in reading Unbroken. I hope you enjoy your books!ReplyDelete
These look like good reads! Where do you get/buy your books at?ReplyDelete
@Logan: I love Ruby Red's cover too.ReplyDelete
@Billy: I got all these from the library. That's where I get most of my books.
The cover of Ruby Red is just so luxe and pretty. I love it. I'd pick up the book just for that cover!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy Ruby Red and the other lovely sounding books. =)ReplyDelete
