  1. I've heard many great things about some of these books. I still didn't read The Fault in Our Stars, and The Name of the Star yet, even though it was on my shelf since last year, I'm so bad at reading books right away, I usually buy them and they just there for over a year until I finally get a chance to read one of those books.
    Great haul, and enjoy those books.


    Here's my weekly book haul Saturday on the Shelves

    1. I'm really bad at reading books that I've bought right away, too. Divergent is probably the oldest unread book sitting on my shelf; it's been there for over a year. Must. Read. Soon!

    1. I've got my fingers crossed with The Raven Boys because I wasn't crazy over The Scorpio Races. I liked the synopsis for The Raven Boys, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

  18. Oh, you're starting the Dark Hunter books? <3! I have such fond memories of reading them, especially the first ones. They were coming out back when I was in university. I hope you enjoy them.

    Also, The Fault In Our Stars is utterly fabulous. I read it earlier this year and absolutely loved it.

    Have a great week!

    1. I've started reading the Dark Hunter books because I really like Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick YA series. I was browsing through the other DH books at the library, and Acheron's book is quite big!

      Delete
  19. Wow that's a lot of books to get through!

    Honestly I actually haven't heard of most of those books, except for Fault in our Starts which I hear is amazing. And heart wrenching.

    Just having a look at goodreads now: Fantasy Lover sounds incredibly intriguing!

    1. I'm reading Fantasy Lover right now, and it's awesome! I love anti-heroes, too, and after reading your review of Dark Places, I went straight to the library the next day to borrow it. I usually don't read mystery/crime novels, but this one blew me away! Now I'm really itching to read Gone Girl!
