What's new with you? Tell me in comments!
Ohhh, I just got a bookmark for The Darkness Shows the Stars, and because I like shiny pretty things my head was instantly turned. And did I mention I haven't actually read a Holly Black book? But I've heard really good things about them!ReplyDelete
I love that bookmark. It is very shiny!Delete
You must read the Curseworkers series. Hasn't Steph nagged you about this??
I have Black Heart, can't wait to read it. I also want to get a copy of storm at some point. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I'm very excited for it too!Delete
I just finished Storm a couple days ago (I liked it!) and will be reading The Golden Lily soon after my friend finishes it :-)ReplyDelete
I just recently added Shift to my TBR. Looking forward to your review on the that one! For Darkness Shows the Stars sounds like an interesting read too! :-)
I've heard good things about Storm, so I'm looking forward to it!Delete
I decided to do what I say I won't do but always end up doing...start another book while reading two others. I picked up The Immortal Rules from my huge TBR stack and it ROCKS! I was frankly disappointed by Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series but so far I believe this book shows some serious promise. My only gripe is that the writing is a little abrupt, as in the sentences are very choppy but that may just be the voice of the main character. She is a young and rough around the edges so I guess we can see how she develops over time. But I am so excited to read a book that I would recommend! It's been awhile!ReplyDelete
I didn't read Iron Fey, but I really enjoyed Immortal Rules. It's long, but I thought it was great!Delete
What awesome books you got this week... For Darkness Shows the Star and The Golden Lily, I want to read so badly... Happy reading..ReplyDelete

And nothing's really new with me this week other than I have graduated 6th grade Chinese school, but then I found out I have to skip a grade if I don't want to take my last year of Chinese school in sophomore year, which is supposedly really busy -.-
Well, congratulations on your graduation!Delete
I will confess that I totally caved and bought Tokyo Heist. I am so excited to read it.ReplyDelete

My BEA Bookish Recap
Having a giveaway and trivia this coming week, so stop by and enter!Delete
I have Black Heart but I hadn't read the previous books. A friend is letting me borrow them because I hear it's an amazing series.ReplyDelete
I LOVE that series. Hope you have a chance to try it soon.Delete
I just heard about Storm recently and added it to my TBR. It sounds really good! I absolutely LOVED For Darkness Shows the Stars! I hope you do too! :)ReplyDelete
You can check out what books I got this week here!
Very excited to read it!Delete
I really need to buy Storm. It sounds so friggin good. Oh, and Tokyo Heist. I so want to read that one. Shift looks really cool too.ReplyDelete
I thought you were the one who told me to read Storm??? I must be confused.Delete
OHMYGOD!!! I'm practically SALIVATING at those piles of books, ESPECIALLY that last pile. Being a Jane Austen fan, I'm DYING to read "For Darkness Shows the Stars", and "Tokyo Heist" just sounds really cool. Plus, I've been DYING to read "Storm", just look at those gorgeous boys on the cover, and I'm sure the author has made their characters just as dreamy! :DReplyDelete
Name: Hira Hasnain
Well, stay tuned. Since I accidentally got two copies of Storm, one will be in Freebie Friday soon.Delete
now I'm wondering why you bought Golden Lily when you had one before lolReplyDelete
I wonder if Jen M. sleeps with Golden Lily on her pillow haha :)
I'm using it for a giveaway. And, yeah, she might have it under her pillow!!Delete
Looking forward to reading The Golden Lily!ReplyDelete
There's not much new with me. I LOATHE Winter. Loathe it with a vengeance. Having got that out of my system, I must say TOKYO HEIST gets my attention.ReplyDelete
My copy of The Golden Lily arrived from the Book Depository today! YAY! More Adrian and Dimitri!ReplyDelete
I looove Black Heart. And I can't wait to hear what you think of Tokyo Heist!ReplyDelete
oohh, loved Tokyo Heist and I'm picking up Black Heart from the library this week:)ReplyDelete
Anxious to hear your thoughts on For the Darkness Shows the Stars:))
Ooh please read For Darkness Shows the Stars first, I definitely want to know how that is. Nothing really new here. I am finally reading Hourglass and loving it. I also finished What a Boy Needs and am already missing my boys, they are so funny.ReplyDelete

STORM STORM STORM!!!!ReplyDelete
I just received a copy of Spark and I seriously can't wait to get started!!! :D
