My Month in Books: July

I decided rather than do a weekly IMM I wanted to create a monthly post that combines the books I receive with a look back on the month. A post to talk about everything that has happened book wise - so any books I receive for review or buy, any bookish events I attend, what I've read, reviewed and so on.

I've been a bit behind on getting these posted.  So in an attempt to catch up,  this is My Month in Books for July.

Read in July:

My highlights for the month include:

Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson.
I love Sarah Alderson's books and this was just awesome! 

Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent
How much do I love this series!  I can't wait for With All My Soul!!!!!!!!

Such A Rush by Jennifer Echols
It's Jennifer Echols - need I say more?

Size 12 and Ready To Rock by Meg Cabot
I freaking love this series so as soon as I saw this was being published in the US I knew I had to have it.  Great fun!

You can see (if you so desire) what I read in July  here.

Macmillan (4th July Party)

I was invited to attend a 4th July party to celebrate the release of Dreamless by Josephine Angelini.  We got to talk to her via skype and ask questions.  Great fun!

I also picked up these lovelies:

Big thanks to Macmillan for a great evening:)

Simon & Schuster (Blogger's Summer Party)

I was also invited to the S&S offices to see the July-Dec 2012 highlights and meet Sarah Alderson, the author of Hunting Lila, Losing Lila and Fated. I am a really big fan of her books so it was really a treat to meet her.  We were also given a sample of her new book (called The Sound) that will be coming next year and it is awesome! I can't wait to get my grubby hands on it when it's released! And Simon and Schuster have an amazing line of titles!  I can't wait - I'm really looking forward to them all!!!
