  2. Wow, happy reading you guys! These are all amazing picks...or at least they sound amazing :D Most of these are still on my TBR list but I'm jealous of everyone who gets to experience Beautiful Creatures for the first time (is it the first time??) - I enjoyed that book so much! Then again, Beautiful Redemption is already sitting on my shelf... :D

  4. A lot of the books here are ones I recently ordered online or put on hold at the library (Nice taste! XD ) I am EXTREMELY jealous that you've got Girl of Nightmares. That doesn't come out in Australia until June 2013 :( I am very tempted to order it before then...

  7. Wow nice haul ladies! I really want to read The Raven Boys! I didn't know they had The Infernal Devices in Manga?! I still need to read the original books first though...A Clockwork Angel is sitting on top of my bookshelf...taunting me! I also need to get moving on my copies of both Reached & Unearthly. I hope you all enjoy all your goodies because they all look awesome :) Thanks for sharing.

  10. Oh, wow, all three of you got some awesome books this week! I actually just finished Alice in Zombieland and really enjoyed it, and bought The Raven Boys and started it, but set it aside in order to get through my library picks, since they need to go back this week. And I STILL need to read Unearthly!

    I hope all three of you enjoy your books! Happy Reading!

  18. This haul just reminded of how many good books are out there that I need to pick up from the libraey and read. Geez, I need to quit my job in order to have more reading time. But then I wouldn't be able to afford my reading habit. Anyways, happy reading!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

  25. Me and Ally are kind of booktwins with The Raven Boys;) Hehe. Mmmm.. Alice in the Zombieland was interesting and had great sarcasm + drama, but if you're a zombie fan, then the teenage drama thing may be a bit too much for you. What else? Umm.. Beautiful Creatures was interesting as well, but I kind of grew tired of Ethan's inner monologue, however, I was still fascinated with the caster's world and everything, so yep, I was pleased. And I need to read Anna Dressed in Blood (heard that was amazing, so hopefully the sequel will be too:)) and I really, really want to read Unearthly. Girls, this haul is probably the best I've seen this week! I hope you enjoy all of these and have fun with them:)

    Happy reading and thank you for visiting,
