  1. I loved The Bitter Kingdom too, it was so good! I need to read Jellicoe Road and The Sky is Everywhere, I've heard such good things about them. The Bone Season was excellent, too bad you have to return it! ~Pam

  2. You should definitely read Jellicoe Road. It's one of the best books I've read so far this year, behind The Fault in Our Stars and Graceling. :)

  3. I really want to read The Bitter Kingdom! I've heard nothing but amazing things about it! And the beginning of The Bone Season is kind of boring, but it gets better.(You will love Warden!)

      I'm really looking forward to The Bone Season (especially since you spoke so highly of it on your blog), so I'm hoping to get the chance to read it soon!

  6. So excited that you finalllly got Jellicoe and TSiE! I can't wait to hear what you think!

    The last book I bought was OCD LOVE STORY by Corey Ann Haydu, and it was so ridiculous good that it burrowed inside my head and made me physically uncomfortable in the most impressive way. Right now I'm reading ORDINARY BEAUTY by Laura Wiess (love her other books I've read), and I just read UNBREAK MY HEART by Melissa C. Walker and SMALL DAMAGES by Beth Kephart. I also copyedited ONE & ONLY by Viv Daniels, which I will be rec'ing allll over the place, because I loved it, and I'm all for getting some beta male LIs in NA!

    1. I've heard OCD Lover Story is amazing! Melissa Walker is a great author- I read her book Violet on the Runway years ago and loved it! Looking up One and Only. :)
