Hi, everyone. As you can see, there is no IMM today. If you're a book blogger, you're probably aware of all the drama that occurred this week in the book blogging world. I don't want to comment on it too much because a lot has already been said and everyone is going to have their own opinion. For me this means that I am no longer going to participate in IMM. I still want to share my book hauls with you though so I decided to start my own weekly feature called Stacked (this title may change). This is by no means an original feature but just a way for me to share my books with you. I hope to have a nifty graphic for it soon. I respect anyone's choice to still participate or not in IMM and will visit and comment on your book haul post. Now, onto the books!
I didn't buy too many books this week but I did go to the library. I could just go on about how much I love the library but you guys already know. I also went to the Christopher Moore signing at Vroman's this week, which was super fun. I'll have a whole recap on that at some point.
Why We Broke Up by Daniele Handler and Maira Kalman - I have heard mixed things about this book but any book that has lots of illustrations is something I want to try. Nice and shiny from the library.
172 Hours of the Moon by Johan Harstad - Based on Lauren's review on 365 Days of Reading, I knew I had to pick this up. Sounds super creepy!
Before I Go To Sleep by by S. J. Watson - This is my book club book this month. I don't know much about this except that it's sort of like Memento (love that movie!) because the main character wakes up every day losing their memory. Another creepy sounding read.
Cake Ladies by Jodi Roden - I like to check out cookbooks from the library before buying. This cake book is based on traditional Southern recipes. I love cookbooks like these based on tradition and word of mouth recipes.

Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore - As I said, I went to the signing yesterday and bought Moore's newest book. The cover is so gorgeous! Also got a nifty tattoo to go with it.
The Governess Affair by Courtney Milan - I love Milan's historical romances and this novella is the teaser for a new series coming out this year. Given that I loved her last novella, I am excited about this.
Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn - J. Lynn is the pseudonym for Jennifer Armentrout's adult novels. I was a huge fan of her YA book, Obsidian, and am very curious to see how she handles adult romance.
Codename Verity by Elizabeth Wein - Thanks to my co-blogger Alethea for pointing out that this was a Read Now on NetGalley. It looks kind of awesome. :)
That's all I have today. Now I am off to find some breakfast. Hope you're all having a fun weekend. Leave your links and I'll be sure to visit.
