IMM is hosted by The Story Siren & STS is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
Yes I am participating in two memes/features with this one post (sneaky I know). :) But both have basically the same point - list all the books that you bought, borrowed or received from various sources.
I added my special little twist. You, my readers, have a special power: you can push one book to the top of my reading pile. ;)
Your Recommendations From Comments:
If you have visited my blog before, you have probably noticed that at the end I ask what should I read first from new pile of books.
Ginormous pile of books from two weeks ago had a lot of comments. But most people voted/mentioned/were interested in Incarnation by Emma Cornwall, so I pushed this book up my tbr and reviewed it last week.
I hope it helps you to decide if you would like to read the book. :)
As for last book pile: the book that got most mentions/votes is Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes. Keep an eye open, review will be posted soon. ;)
Thank you all for participating.

This is the second book in Swipe series by Evan Angler. Genre is best described as a young adult post-apocaliptic dystopian. It got a lot of great reviews from my friends so I am very excited that I have an opportunity to read it.

I don't know about you, but one of my favorite creatures in books are angels. The Watcher by Lisa Voisin is about "a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave." Will Mia in her new reincarnation achieve happiness in love or will the old enemies win again?

"The Amarias Adventures are centered around Jesse, a young teenage boy who lives with his aunt and uncle in the world of Amarias." This Middle Grade fantasy sounds like fun. Jesse with a couple of friends goes on a quest to find the scorpion jewel. I am imagining something like Indiana Jones for this books atmosphere, but I may be wrong...

This book has an intriguing plot: "A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know." I love the cover. *watches blue swirly thingies*

NightShade Books had another great giveaway for Thanksgiving. What's great about their giveaways? It's that everybody wins. :D This ebook and two more were the prizes, but since I already owned others I downloaded just this one. This steampunk alternate history fantasy seems like it will be fun. :)

Brandon Sanderson is currently my auto-buy author. I read and loved Elantris and I can't wait to read another novel set in the same world.
Let's Talk:What do you think I should read first?
If you haven't heard about any of these books before, then which one would you like to learn more about, in other words which one would you like me to review first?
Did you already read something from this pile?
What did you get this week?
