This is my first IMM! I don't usually buy books because i don't have money. And I don't have a job soo the only place i can read books is the library. I go to the library every two weeks. Since there was a book fair at my school last week and this week. I asked my dad if he can give me money so i can buy some books and he did. He only gave me $20 though. But I brought 5 awesome books. Tomorrow I'm going to be having more books because my friends are each buying me a book since i don't get anything for christmas :) Which i'm excited for, yayay! So I hope you enjoy my first IMM.

The Splendor Falls
Can love last beyond the grave?
Sylvie Davis is a ballerina who can’t dance. A broken leg ended her career, but Sylvie’s pain runs deeper. What broke her heart was her father’s death, and what’s breaking her spirit is her mother’s remarriage—a union that’s only driven an even deeper wedge into their already tenuous relationship.
Uprooting her from her Manhattan apartment and shipping her to Alabama is her mother’s solution for Sylvie’s unhappiness. Her father’s cousin is restoring a family home in a town rich with her family’s history. And that’s where things start to get shady. As it turns out, her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys that she can’t stop thinking about. Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, seems to be perfect in every way. But Rhys—a handsome, mysterious foreign guest of her cousin’s—has a hold on her that she doesn’t quite understand.
Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well?
