IMM Vol. 17

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. Here is what we received this week !

Jess's Library Haul

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood (I can't belive they had this)
Excel 2002 for Dummies (I need a refresher on this program. This was the only edition they had) 
Knock 'em Dead 2012: The Ultimate Job Search Guide - (And the job search continues . . .)

Won by Kat

Outlander Chronicles #1 Phoenix by CH Cobb

I received this book for review from Dani over at Refracted Light. It was written by her Dad and while it is not young adult it falls in nicely with all the YA dystopians popping up. Dani even designed the cover ! Look for the review soon.

Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin 
I won this from Shannon over at Books Devoured. She said she enjoyed it and I like a good contemporary,so I can't wait for this one.


Grave Mercy by Rachel LaFevers
Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others. 

I've seen this on a lot of Waiting on Wednesdays and it looks like it might be an interesting high fantasy.
