You win the greatest book haul in IMM history. Seriously. I haven't seen anything this drool inducing since...ever! I am a new book blogger, so that might be why. But I doubt it. Enjoy every second! I will be awaiting your reviews :)

OMG I don't even know where to begin commenting on your massive haul!

One book that really stands out for me that I'm DYING to get my hands on is Witchlanders. It sounds so good!

I've never come across Envy before, but that cover has intrigued me. I want to know more!
