IMM is a meme brought to us from The Story Siren. Basically, it's a good way to add books on to your TBR pile, get a head's up on what is coming soon, and to totally brag. Let's get real... ;)

For review:
Goliath by Scott Westerfeld
Wildfire by Karsten Knight
The Isle of Blood (The Monstrumologist #3) by Rick Yancey (thx, Simon Teen for all 3 books!)

The entire Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld and some awesome signed swag! (thx, Uniquely Moi Books!)
I've read this whole series when it first came out years ago and have recommended it many many times. I borrowed every copy from the library and never had my own - now I do! 

Not a bad week! Those Westerfeld books are going to come in handy when I meet the genius this Saturday at the Austin Teen Book Fest. If you are in Texas...join us! We will be having a get together on the Friday night before the fest and the special screening of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist at the Alamo Drafthouse. Details HERE

I hope you have been hopping like a crazy person over all of these Banned Books Week giveaways going around. I have been hopping by each stop to personally thank everyone. Give me a few days, there are a lot of you, but I promise I'll get there! Thank you all for participating and being Intellectual Freedom Fighters!

Coming soon:
Another banned book inspired giveaway this week! 
Review and interview of A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

    My IMM:
    I missed a couple of weeks so the list isn't normal.

  6. Yay! What a nice mailbox. I've been patiently waiting for Goliath. When I met Scott awhile back, Leviathan just came out. So I'm like, biting my nails with anticipation! I'm so sure it will be well worth the wait though.

  21. Hi, was The Uglies banned at one point? I have to do a research paper on a banned book and I would love to do it on The Uglies... if it was banned.
