This book made me say: What? Okay, whaaaat?

  2. I can't wait to see the YA trends that you want to break up with!! I have quite a few myself lol!

  3. You've had a good week with me- you made me pre-order Shadowlands, and the review about the robot book is the funniest thing I've read in a long time!

  4. Looking forward to your review of Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi.

  5. Interested to see what YA trends you want to break up with. I for one am kind of done with cliffhanger endings for the most part but I'll have to think more about what else I am over.

  6. I'm hoping to finish Through the Ever Night today/tomorrow and Then You Were Gone sounds really good and I haven't read any reviews yet so I'm excited to hear what you think! :)

  7. Can't wait to see your thoughts on TtEN. Can't wait to read it.. Enjoy your week.

  9. I really need to start that Veronica Rossi series! Might have to see if the library has it. And I look forward to seeing what YA trends you're ready to break up with ... there are some majorly overused ones out there!

  10. Forgot to mention that I am doing the Bad Boy Rehab hop too!

    I can't wait to hear what YA trends you are giving the ax to, Jen:)

  11. So excited to read Just One Day!!

  12. I can't wait to see what you thought about Then You Were Gone. I'm looking forward to that one! I hope it doesn't have anything to do with trends you are ready to break up with!

  13. Through the Ever Night! I have to start that series. There are a few YA trends that I wouldn't mind breaking up with myself, so I am looking forward to what you will be writing about.

  14. I still need to read the first Rossi book, but it is in my tbr pile. I am curious about your YA break-up post, since i have some thoughts on that too! Have a delightful week cupcake! The Sunday Post
