  1. Great books you got this week. I just started reading the Carrier of the Mark today and it's quite good so far. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  2. Ripple! Lola! They're both soooo good! I hope you enjoy :)

  3. Wow, you got a lot of great books this week, even though many were repeats.

    So sorry to hear about your truffles. I hope they're okay. They're just never quite the same after a huge meltdown.

    Great vlog! Oh, and I love your cat, who stole the show for part of your IMM.

  4. Lindt chocolate you say?
    I have had truffles melt and I usually just stick them in the fridge and eat them anyway, they are too good to pass up!

    I still have a golden, chocolate bunny left from Easter in my fridge :D

    Anyway, awesome books, as always James, can't wait to hear your thoughts on Sisterhood Everlasting.

    And Ripple :)

    Ok, I'm gonna go now buy some chocolate

  5. Oh, I want to read EVE so much!!!! Awesome books this week!!!!
    Great vlog as well!!! Happy reading!

    My IMM:
