  1. Ally - Something Strange & Deadly is good.
    Melissa - The Raven Boys is solid albeit the slow start. So jealous you got LHabel in your library.

    Lee -read Gone Girl & dang that's a whacked out story it'll make your jaw drop. It's lighter than Dark Places but still disturbing like Snapped

    1. Ally and Lee suggested I read The Raven Boys. I'm usually a pretty patient reader, so I hope the beginning won't deter me. And I can't wait to read Dearly, Departed! I have waited quite a while for it. Thanks for dropping by! :)

    1. Lee is quite adamant that I read Unearthly and Hallowed. I have to say, Unearthly is very interesting so far! Thank you for dropping by! :)

  4. Shatter Me was my favourite book of 2011, can't wait for the sequel!!! Something Strange and Deadly was also pretty enjoyable. They were OK, but I didn't enjoy Within and Darkness Before Dawn very much. And I can't wait to get started on my copy of The Raven Boys!

    Happy Reading! :)

  8. You guys always have the most diverse hauls :) LOTS of new ones here for me and therefore lots to check out on Goodreads haha! Anyways, I've heard lots of great things about The Diviners, Shadow Society, The Raven Boys & Shatter Me...all of which I really want to read too! I'm hoping to crack open my copy of Unearthly within my next few reads...but I'm still excited to see Hallowed there ;)

    Sweet selection here all around - I'd say happy reading but it kinda goes without saying in this case LOL Thanks for sharing!

    1. Unearthly, Hallowed, and The Raven Boys are the three books that I'm currently urging everyone to read; I loved them both! I got Ally to read The Raven Boys, and she also loved it. Then we insisted that Melissa read it, too. She may have borrowed it just to get Ally and me to stop bugging her about it, lol. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. The Diviners has quite a lot of pages to it, doesn't it? I'm currently reading Beautiful Creatures, which is another 500+ page tome, so I may read something a bit shorter before digging into The Diviners. Thanks for stopping by!
