  1. Awesome week! How cool of Little Brown to send you such an amazing box!!! I think I would be flailing around on the floor if I got A Midsummer's Nightmare!! hehe

  2. Wow, some great books this week, the gorgeous kitties were distracting me though, they are so cute!

  3. Great set! So cool that you got the Zafon book. He's a great author.
    My IMM

  4. WHAT THE WHAT, JAMES?! Perception and Revived all in one week? Oh. My. Stars. I am so anxious for both of those. :) *drools*

  5. Um, you are freaking adorable! And I love the cameos by your cats. I really want to try to get my cat into this week's IMM. I'm not sure if she'll be into it, and she's a little old so she can't really jump around.

    So many books so little time! The Boy Recession looks really interesting! Adding that to my list!

    Hope you have a great week!

  6. You obviously had a good week! I love your cat cameos!

  7. Awesome books! I really want to read The Last Princess.
