  1. I’m really excited for Ivory and Bone, And I Darken, and A Torch Against the Night! They sound sooo good! The Wrath and the Dawn, The Orphan Queen, and Throne of Glass were all super awesome too, I hope you get around to reading them soon! I put Katniss and Hermione on my apocalypse squad as well, hopefully they would help us survive the apocalypse! 🙂

  2. You must read The Orphan Queen & The Mirror King! I really love this duology, and Jodi just really knows how to write a good story. Have you read her Newsoul series? Those books are incredible too. Also, Throne of Glass – love this series as well. I hope you get the chance to read them! Happy Love-a-Thon! So glad you’re joining in 🙂

  3. When you first get an ARC from a publisher, it is a truly proud and rewarding thing because you really worked hard for that!

    More people need to read I’ll Give You The Sun. It’s written so beautifully, and every time I think about it, I get all emotional. Good sign.

    HELLS YEAH AT ARCTIC MONKEYS. I am forever blasting their AM album since it is my absolute fave. I need them to come out with more awesome.
