1. In my mailbox (IMM)

Every Monday i will be doing an IMM (unless of course i acquire no books, which is rare for me) So this Monday i mostly only have ebooks that i have got, i would have had two physical books but it hasn't arrived yet. Next Monday there will be a much bigger IMM as i will be going to my favourite discount book shop this Friday woo! I will probably also be looking in charity shops as i haven't in quite a while, so look out for a more impressive haul next week.

What i got this week:
Blood Red Road by Moira Young - I have had this on my TBR for a little while as it has good reviews and i thought it sounded pretty good, I wasn't planning on buying it, but saw it in a WHSmith for buy one get one half price, so my boyfriend and i got one each. Really looking forward to reading this one now!
The Stone Girl by Alyssa B. Sheinmel - "An affecting and unflinching portrait of a girl battling an eating disorder" I was lucky enough to be approved for an early copy of this by Random House Children's Books, so thank you! It sounds good so lets hope it will be. Release date is 28th August so keep an eye out for a review in August.
Hanging by a Thread by Sophie Littlefield - "One small town. One special girl. Many dirty secrets." I haven't read many mysteries but this one seems to have a little supernatural-ish twist which i hope will make this a thrilling read! Thank you to Random House Children's Books for this early copy. This is set to be released September 11th so look for a review around then!
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan - "Kami Glass is in love with someone she's never met—a boy she's talked to in her head since she was born." There is more to this book but that is the first line from the description - it sounds really good and i do like the cover! Again thank you to Random House for this. To be released September 11th so i shall have a review closer to the time.
Interrupted by Rachel Coker - "Can love really heal all things?" A historical fiction that i have actually begun to read - i am not so much into it yet but keep an eye out for a review in the next week or so. This has already been released on March 1st. Thank you Zondervan for this.
The Shapeshifter's Secret by Heather Ostler - "This fast-paced action-adventure story is packed with humour, romance, and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing to the very last page. Get lost in a world of hidden royalty, shifting alliances, and dangerous vendettas, but don’t ever forget: nothing is what it seems." Well doesn't that sound good? This is going to be released on June 12th so look for a review before then! Thank you Ceder Fort for this.

 And that's it for this week! I am thinking that from next week onwards i may just post the names and pics of the books i have received to keep them short and sweet. What do you think? I may also add a video version just so i can give my thoughts on them a bit easier and quicker.
Have you read any of these books? Are you looking forward to any? What did you get this last week?
