IMM a Little Tea Pot (IMM5)

Hello!  Hello!!!!!!  I hope everybody is having a great weekend!!!!  My sinuses/allergies have been crazy all week…and I don’t know how you guys are, but when I get sinus pressure and sinus headaches, it usually means I’m not able to get a lot of reading in, no matter how hard I try.  Let me just say thank you to my Neti Pot, which is a miracle worker!!!! (ok, it's not exactly an IMM thing, more of an In My Shower thing)(IMS??)(but still, it totally deserves a shout out for enabling me to breathe this week!!!!)


Allergies aside, I got a couple of books that I am SUPER-EXCITED about!!!!!!!!


First, an *AUTOGRAPHED* copy of Thornspell by Helen Lowe!!!!!!!!  I’ve been stalking Helen on the Supernatural Underground (seriously, you guys have to check out this blog!!!!!)—And then I followed Helen to her own blog, where I entered and won her It’s All About the Characters contest!!!!!  Thornspell is a retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale from the prince’s point of view—and it’s a good thing this a hardcover, because I’ve totally been drooling all over it!!!! ;)


And secondly….I won a *SIGNED* ARC of J.K. Beck’s When Blood Calls!!!!!!  It’s the first book of her new Shadow Keepers trilogy being released this year and it looks SUPER STEAMY!!!!!!!  I have to read this one quick before my sister steals it!!!!!  —Actually, I really need to thank my sister, because she’s the one who told me about the contest…So I keep wondering if I should feel guilty for winning her book, but hey, what are sister’s for??? ;)


I want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  to both Helen Lowe and to J.K. Beck for their contests and AWESOME AMAZING SUPER FANTASTIC books!!!!!!!!!!!!!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!






So….How did the rest of you do???  Happy reading everyone!!!!!!  Hope you all had a great week and hope next week is even better!!!!!!
