I love authors who really treat their fans well! But what an amazing IMM this week! I love your library! I wish mine was half as good.

    I'm looking at your cats and I'm a little sad b/c mine is a little sick right now. But she does the same exact thing yours does. As soon as there's anything out on the floor, paperwise, she's got to be there laying on it :) Give your "kiddies" all a scratch from me!

    1. My library used to be better! I moved recently and the library is not at all as good. I have to request books from out of town libraries. They have link+ now so other cities are all linked up and I can get books from out of town. It helps! I didn't let my books go at all! LOL I had paperbacks and Michelle sent me hardback copies. So now I have one to read and one to save. Yes my cat loves to lay on everything! My purse and clothes especially. Mine has been sick on and off too. He is almost 17 so his health is catching up to him. It's so sad cause I have had him since he was two days old. He is my baby! Thanks for visiting I'm heading to your blog now.

  27. Great mailbox! I really can't wait to read Everneath. And your cats are too cute, awesome names :) I can't believe you renamed one Devil! That's too funny. I would have renamed my dog that, but she probably wouldn't have responded to it :) Happy reading!

  40. "Daighter of Smoke and Bone" was really good. I liked the first half of the book more than the second, but it's definitely a really creative and entertaining book.

    I also am almost desperate for a copy of "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children." I've been wanting to read that book pretty much from the first moment I heard of it!

    And I also got a copy of "In the Forests of the Night," and was about 30 pages from the end before I lost it. I think one of my kittens decided it was a toy and chased it under the couch, and I haven't been able to get it out. Silly cats. I really should find it soon; I promised the author a review, after all.

But it looks so creepy and I kept seeing reviews that I am curious. I never heard of In the Forests of the Night but I'm curious. And I lost my computer mouse in my house one time. I dropped it and it went so far under my bed I didn't find it until I moved. So weird! Thanks for stopping by!!
