Then I told you ALL about how I CANNOT WAIT for Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney.

  1. Waaa...your book haul is such a thing of envy. <3

    I hope you enjoy them. :D

    Thoughts and Pens

  2. OMG So many good books, I don't even know where to start. I haven't read all the books you've mentioned but I can tell you most of them will be absolutely spectacular! Happy reading! New bloglovin' follower as well. :D

  3. Lovely haul. I see lots of awesome books in your haul this week. Follow via bloglovin. Some of those book covers are making me salivate. Awesome week.

    Come visit me here from now on, I move to self hosted WP

  4. You got so many amazing books! I am envious of this haul! Old follower.

    My STS:

  5. Really enjoyed Slated & False Memory. Hope you like them too.

  6. I really need to revisit Colleen Hoover's books. I couldn't get into "Slammed" and I haven't gone back. Happy reading!

  7. WOOOW you got lots of great books! I really liked Hopeless and Such a Rush, and I've read a few others too. We both got Slated this week, which I'm stoked about because I've heard lots of great things about. Enjoy your fabulous books and happy reading! (New follower, btw :D)

    My STS, in case you want to check it out! c:

  8. How dare you not mention me and the mail of love I sent you earlier this month. HOW DARE YOU.

    Just! Kidding! You got some excellent books this haul! I'm quite jealous!

  9. Oh gosh, I am really impressed that you can list what books you're going to read next in order. I can never do that. I'm always changing my mind.

    Anyway, I've read Storm, Hopeless, Unearthly and Hallowed, and I've enjoyed them all, but nothing has blown me away.

    Oh I am in such a reading slump. I need to get past it, but I'm having the most difficult time. I just can't seem to concentrate on much. BUt I am really hoping to just devote a bunch of time this weekend to reading. Of course, I'm saying that at 2:30 on Saturday, and I still haven't picked up a book.

    Anyway, enjoy all your goodies and happy reading.

  10. UGH YOUR HAUL! btw, I love housing works. Every time I'm in the city I have to go and check out their YA section now.

    But...on to my thoughts. I may go to the TWO BOYS KISSING launch! idk yet!

    I've been trying to read STARRY NIGHTS for several days now and I keep putting it down after like every 4 pages. It's not dragging me in :( I hope your experience is better!


    Dirty Little Secret was a dnf for me because the love interest was the douchiest douche to ever douche.

    I can't wait to read RUBY RED! I got that and its sequel at the strand a few months ago.

    While I was in California I made Gillian buy EON. I LOVED IT AND YOU WILL LOVE IT TOO! But now I am sad that I don't own my own copy :(

  11. GABBY, I HAVE MISSED YOUR FACE. That's all. This is why I love this Stacking the Shelves post right now. Makes me less homesick for NYC! Okay, as for the books...

    STORM (*fangirl grin* *pompoms* *happy dance*) is one of those books I ADORE. I feel like it deserves more attention than it's gotten because it's just so darn GOOD. 4 hot brothers is always a good thing.

    SECOND CHANCE SUMMER is a tearjerker. You will CRY Gaby. I remember reaching a certain part in the book and just lying there for what felt like hours sobbing my little heart out. So be warned. Also, cute romance.

    EON is a dragon book. Basically that makes it one of the most awesome books ever. That's all. (But seriously, even though I could figure out the plot right away, it's still epic.)

    SUCH A RUSH was my first experience with Jennifer Echols and it was GOOD. I love the boys in that book, but I love the main character a whole lot more.

    UNEARTHLY + HALLOWED is a good, good choice. Love the angel lore. Love Clara. LOVE the boys. Seriously, I was very addicted to this series when I read it.

    There are all my thoughts for you. MISS YOU GABY <3

  12. Great haul this week. I'm super jealous!

  13. Wow, so many books! I've only actually read 3 of them, False Memory, Slated & Unearthly, all really good. Hope you enjoy. :)

  18. HEEEEEEEEEE IT'S YOUR FACE AGAIN! And you're adorable! And I will see your adorable face in ABOUT TWO MONTHS EXCUSE ME WHILE I FREAK OUT! I've only read Unearthly, which was good, and Second Chance Summer which was incredible. Please make sure you have enough tissues because YOU WILL CRY.
