These bookish memes allow us to share with other bloggers the awesome books we got, and of course be jealous of everyone who got super awesome books, too!
This will be my last IMM of this year, as well as one of my last posts of the year. I'll be running around like a crazy person with traveling, working, and Christmas/New Year's. No time for blogging or reading! I think Carla and I will be doing one of Jamie's End of Year Bookish Surveys, but then it'll be 2013 before you see me again.
That being said, I totally failed on reaching my goal of 115 books this year. I figured having 4 days off per week would maybe help with reading more? WRONG. I read less than I did last year, when I worked 5 days a week, as well as had school full-time. HOW DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?
At any rate, I've read 102 books so far this year. Maybe I'll make it to 105, but that is highly doubtful. Hey, I'm still proud. That is an insane amount of books!
I'd really like to try for 110 in 2013, but we'll see. For whatever reason, I'm being crazy and considering going back for my Bachelor's in Nursing (BLECH) and maybe making a couple other life changes like moving to Chicago.
But I digress.
It was a fab week in mail for me!
Asunder by Jodi Meadows: (requested) OMG OMG OMG OMG.
The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shephard: (unsolicited) I haven't heard much about this one, other than Jamie telling me how great it was. Hey, that's good enough for me!
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza: (NetGalley) This looks ridiculously good.
Pivot Point by Kasie West: (NetGalley) I'm about 50 pages into this and I'm not sure I'm gonna finish it, unfortunately.
thank you, HarperTeen and NetGalley!

Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt (Kindle): I've only heard incredible things about this book. Plus, it was practically illegally cheap on Amazon.
Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair (Kindle): April's review sold me on this one. Plus, CHRISTMAS!
Christmas on Mimosa Lane by Anna DeStefano (Kindle): Another Amazon ebook I found. Christmas and a nurse. I will buy any book about nurses.
