With the glass doors closed...

However, it wasn't the best week for me, over the passed year I've been continuously sick so I got checked out and it turns out I'm allergic to stuff at work. Unfortunately, I'll be unemployed soon so my IMM posts might not be as fun since I need to save money. But, I'll try my hardest to keep up with giveaways. Okay then, look forward to seeing everyone's IMM so leave a link if you want :)

Love your new bookshelf, and the dog! I'm sorry to hear about your allergies, but at least you were able to find out what was going on.

Brooke Reviews said...

Oh wow, those shelves are sooo pretty! :D I'm sick of dealing with Target I should probably go to Ikea lol

RaĆ­la said...

Aw, what a beautiful bookshelf! Loved it! Hope you're fine now. Also, I'm pretty jealous of your copies of Some Girls Are and The Iron King. Getting mine as soon as possible! :)

My IMM is poor this week:

Have a happy week reading!

WilowRaven said...

Great books and I love that bookcase - Ikea is the best!
Hope you start feeling better soon :)

Kari (Flamingo1325) said...

Awesome books this week and that bookshelf is amazing. Major props to your boyfriend =)

That's crappy about the allergies though... too bad they can't just find a way to fix it and manage it but I know all about chronically feeling like crap so you definitely have my sympathy. Hope you feel better soon.

Orchid said...

Great books this week. :)
Ugh, allergies are the worst.

Anonymous said...

I love your bookshelf! So sorry about your allergies and the dog's so cute!

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Aww, so sweet, I love the new bookcase! It looks so professional and organized. *happy sigh*
As for the books you bought this week, you know I think Courtney Summers = total awesome. And I hope The Iron King is as good as the hype; I'll be looking forward to your thoughts. Happy reading! :D

YA Vampire Books said...

Love the pics of your bookcase! It's so fun looking at other people's books :)

Sorry about your job, and your allergies though. Being unemployed sucks.

brizmus said...

So sorry to hear you're allergic to stuff at work. I guess it's kind of humorous as well, though, that you're allergic to your work for real. Anyhow, I hope you'll get better.
Great books you got this week, and I LOVE the new bookcase.

ninefly said...

I love your dog's ears lol, so big and fluffy <3

anyways, I'm looking forward to a review of Unleashed! the cover reminds me a bit of Being Human (the UK tv show) for some reason lol

enjoy your books!

Allison said...

I spy with my little eye Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood and Pretty Little Liars series on your shelf! Along with a ton of other books I'd love to get my hands on. In the future when you're sent more books for review, you may need another shelf all together! This shelf alone is already heaven :) I've been trying to get my hands on Courtney Summers' books because I read good reviews on them. Hopefully your allergies don't get in the way of anything too much. It would be a miracle if they came up with a cure for that stuff, since it's hard because there are so many people -_- Did you add Taeyang as your second boyfriend recently? When I saw it, I couldn't believe I had missed it. He looked especially yummy for Wedding Dress promotions but then he just disappeared to Japan or something like that. I wonder what happened to that album of his...

slommler said...

Love the bookshelf!! It is the perfect size and glass doors to!!! Good deal!
Sorry about your allergies and to add to that...your upcoming unemployment. That sucks for sure!

Rebecca said...

You have Iron King! Lucky! And I love the bookshelf.

Sorry to hear about the job and your illness. Hopefully you will feel better and a new job will come along quickly!

Book Monster said...

The Iron King is amazing book. Hope you enjoy, can't wait to hear your thoughts. Happy Reading!

Anonymous said...

Lovely bookshelf! Mine is so disorganized. xD I wish I had bought a bookshelf with glass doors. I don't like my current bookshelf. *sigh*

I bought SGA this week too, really liking it so far! I saw Iron King on many IMM posts, looking forward for your review.

Stephanie aka The Stark Raving Bibliophile said...

These books look great. Everyone seems excited about The Iron King, and I've read great reviews of Cracked Up to Me and Some Girls Are.

Your new bookcase is gorgeous -- I think your boyfriend is a keeper! :-)

I am sorry you've been so sick and have to leave your job due to allergies. I hope you find a new job, in an environment that's healthy for you, very soon!

Corrine said...

These books all look good! We have some doubles this week. Enjoy all of them! :)

I think I need to invest in a bookshelf with doors too... my cats are constantly pulling books off of the shelf. Thankfully they haven't wrecked any of them.

I have a contest running on my blog right now for the book Break by Hannah Moskowitz. Feel free to check it out. :)

Irene said...
