IMM #12 – In my Mailbox April, 8th 2012


It’s a long time since I last did an IMM Post. I tried to do a Video for it for so long and never managed to get around to so I finally gave up and do it the old fashioned way now. Wow, it’s April already! Can’t believe how quickly the time flies by when you are stressed. At least Spring is finally coming around the corner. I was soooo waiting for that, I hate Winter and cold. As I didn’t do the IMM Posts in a while I have LOADS of Books to show you today so better get started. But before I start I have to tell you that – because it’s so many books – I will leave the Summaries out today. If you want to know more about the Book simply click on the Cover and it will lead you to the Goodreads Page of the Book. First of all the Books I got from the Library.
