  3. I hoping to read defiance soon! Hope you like deception!

  4. Oh you are so lucky to get Deception. Waking Dark looks interesting. Not sure if it's for me.

    Books of Love

  5. Interested in The Waking Dark. It looks so...dark. I mean, what is going on that day? I've heard mixed things about the author's writing in previous books though so I'm wondering how that will work out for you. Happy weekend!

  6. The Waking Dark looks really good. Happy reading!

  7. Welcome back! I hope you had a great vacation - now get back to work lol

  8. Oh, I really want to read BOTH Defiance and The Waking Dark:) Both books I have tried to score early but wasn't able to! And everyone needs to enter that contest to win Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea because it is AWESOME!

    1. Oops, meant DECEPTION--already loved Defiance:)

  9. I haven't heard of these but happy reading!

  10. Ooooh you managed to snag deception ... *jealous * :P Need more Logan

  11. I read Defiance last year and I enjoyed it but had no real inclination to continue with the series. But, The Walking Dark looks awesome! I love that cover it really gives off a creepy, scary and dark mood. I'm looking forward to seeing how felt about it :)

  12. You had a great week on your blog! Thank you for all amazing giveaways! Also I really enjoyed your Between the Devil and Deep Blue Sea review! :) Can't wait to see what you have for us next week :)

  13. I loved the male MC, but not so much the female MC in Defiance. I am planning on reading Deception and am curious how things are going to go. I've got a lot of books I need to read, including several from the library. The hard part is choosing. :)

  14. OMG WAIT. Is that the finished copy of Between the Devil!? I pre-ordered that one... can't wait for my copy to come! I read it back in June... or July? Whatever. It was AWESOME. My most anticipated debut of 2013... did not disappoint. An all-time favorite for me! :)

    Have a terrific weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

  15. Ha, I'm still waiting on The Waking Dark on NG. I think I'm being ignored since I didn't leave the most favorable of reviews for Rapture :O. Hope you enjoy it! The cover looks fabulous and that GR synopsis? Yesss.

    I'd read some GR reviews that convinced me DEFIANCE wasn't for me, but I do hope you enjoy DECEPTION. For some reason, I got really into the title reveal for that one back in the day. Even without having read the first book, I was still thinking of D word titles.

    Welcome back from vacation! Hope it was enjoyable. Any chance of seeing pics from wherever you went :D??

  16. Oohh, Deception. But I still have to finish Defiance first... Happy reading! :)

    Happy reading :) Sharon – Obsession with Books

    Have a great Sunday.

    Enjoy! :)

  25. I still need to read Defiance before I can get to Deception. Just so many books to read! I am reading BtDatDBS right now. I'm enjoying it so far. Have a great week!

  26. I can't wait to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Happy reading!

    My STS.

  27. Hmm I was supposed to be getting an invite for a few Random House books but I still haven't gotten them...I'm kind of thinking I should just request them, because The Walking Dark looks really good!!
    I hope you enjoyed your vacation!

  28. Ooh, I hate it when my vacation ends and I'm slammed back into reality. XD But at least you got awesome books to keep you company! :) Haven't read Defiance yet, but Deception looks pretty badass. Enjoy!

  29. I can't wait to see what you think of Deception. I read it over the weekend and OMG, loved it.

  30. I still haven't gotten approved for The Waking Dark on NG. I loved Wasserman's last novel, so I'm really excited for this one, but I can always pick it up on audio, which hopefully will provide for an even creepier story. :)

  31. I was going to start Defiance and Deception now, but I've heard mixed things about book 2, so now I'm not sure if I should wait until closer to book 3 releases. WIll be waiting for your thoughts.
