29042012: IMM Alternatives!

I’ve held off making this post for most of today to wait and see what gets uncovered, I knew straight away that I wouldn’t be creating my own new idea because I knew there would be others, and boy was I right! I’ve stumbled across 6 so far! So for now I’m going to be linking all 6 here to allow others to find one that suits them best, and I guess that means for today I’m taking part in them all. Hopefully I don’t need to explain why I’m no longer taking part in IMM and that others respect my decision.

A Blood Seduction (Vamp City, #1)
ARC won:A Blood Seduction by Pamela Palmer
Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city’s magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal world…one who knows nothing of the power she wields.Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see—and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her. What Arturo can’t do is forget about her—any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission—his to save his people, hers to save herself. But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red. Welcome to Vamp City…

LichgateseBooks won:

 Lichgates by S. M. Boyce

The Grimoire turns its own pages and can answer any question asked of it, and Kara Magari is its next target. She has no idea what she’s getting herself into when she stumbles across the old book while hiking a hidden trail. Once she opens it, she’s thrown into Ourea: a beautiful world full of terrifying things that all want the Grimoire’s secrets. Everyone in this new world is trying to find her, and most want to control her. Braeden Drakonin grew up in Ourea, and all he’s ever known of life is lying. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. He has one question to ask the book – one question that can fix everything in his broken life – and he’s not letting Kara out of his sight until he gets an answer. There’s no escaping Ourea. There’s no going back now.

Forgiving TrinityForgiving Trinity by Liz Reinhardt

 At seventeen, Trinity McCabe has already made enough mistakes to fill a lifetime. Especially the one where she got high, drove a car, and almost killed a dog. And then let her friend Aidan take the blame. She’s clean now and desperate to fix the messes she’s made, but first she’s going to have to get out of her pajamas. As Trinity struggles to stop sleepwalking through life, she faces the painful, tingling sensation of waking up. It’s sometimes embarrassing (she really didn’t want to have lunch with Aidan’s mom), sometimes terrifying (group therapy is beyond intimidating), and sometimes, amazingly enough, pretty romantic (who’d have though Aidan would be such a great kisser?) Trin is lucky, though—luckier than she deserves, she’s sure—and she doesn’t travel this road alone. Her family, her therapist, and her new friends are all pulling for her. And it turns out, some of them have made pretty big mistakes, too. But before she can embrace her new life completely, Trinity has to be forgiven by the one person who is holding out the hardest: herself. It’s not easy changing everything, especially when you don’t think you deserve a second chance. Trinity might make an even bigger mess of things before she figures that out. When the smoke clears on her latest disaster, will anyone still be standing there?

  1. Thanks for the mention Lauren :-D

    I couldn't choose between the alternatives, so I've made the choice to simply do my own summary, but will still be visiting all the other posts as I love being nosy!

    Great books, enjoy!

  2. Thanks for posting the alternatives! I'm currently linked to Showcase Sunday and Stacking the Shelves but I will make sure to check the others out.

    Here's my post ~ My Week in Books!

    Happy reading!

  3. Thanks for sharing all the alternatives to IMM! I knew some as they popped up in my news-feed today, but not all of them. Not sure yet which to join or whether to just create one of my own. In the end it's not important how we name them, as long as we keep up the fun by simply sharing what we got, right?

  4. Thanks for the mention! :) I knew there were many alternatives but boy, there's even more than I thought!

    I'm sure Forgiving Trinity will be a great read – I read one of Liz's books before and it was quite good! I hope you enjoy all three of your books :)

    Happy reading!

  5. So many alternatives :O I've chosen to stick with Sunday Post! Great haul! I've been wanting to read Forgiving Trinity for quite a while! Have an amazing week <33

  6. Thanks for posting about all these alternatives! I did Stacking the Shelves and Goodie Bag last week. I think I'll link to them all this week and see which one's work out for me.
