  3. I have read TWO of those!! Go me lol

    Have you seen a physical copy of Geekerella? So adorable! So much detail.

    For What It's Worth

  4. Wow that list just kept on going! I really want to read Defy the Stars because I've heard a lot of great things about it. Geekarella looks super cute. Looks like this was the week of contemporary YA books, spring is in the air!

  5. Wow. Busy week. I've only read two of those, but I have plans to read 4 or 5 others.

  6. I love all the comment love for Geekerella, because I loved it so much! So cute and fun. I read 7 of the books up there, and I have no complaints, other than one made me a snotty crying mess, and I hate that. =)

  7. There are a lot this week I am excited about and some I have to get to - Zenn DIagram, Get It Together Delilah , Alex, Approximately, Geekerella and But Then I Came Back.

  8. Wow, there are so many this week! I knew about some of these but not all of them. I read Geekerella and really enjoyed it! I have a copy of Zenn Diagram but haven't gotten to read it yet. It sounds super good. Quite a few of these are on my wishlist too, like: Defy the Stars, Letters to the Lost, Get It Together Delilah, Definitions of Indefinable Things, Gem & Dixie, and Alex, Approximately. Great list! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Super excited about "Toward a Secret Sky" by Heather Maclean. Thank you for the giveaway!

  10. WOW!! Great week for books!! I really want to read Gem & Dixie. I love Sara Zarr. Also, I'm interested in Letters to the Lost as I've been seeing it around so much. AND I'll never say no to a R.L. Stine Cheerleading Fear Street-- even if it is super cheesy.

  11. Wow, so many good books coming out! Alex, Approximately is one I have been waiting for forever, and also Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray! I just love her books in general :3

  12. Lots of awesome upcoming book releases this month ^^ I think the one I’m most looking forward to is Geekerella. A Cinderella retelling and geeks?? Count me in! 😊

    My latest post: The Beauty and the Beast Book Tag (Original)

  13. Super excited to get my hands on Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett and Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer.
