    1. I've been meaning to read Snyder for years and years, so it's about time I did, right? I quite enjoyed Poison Study so I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series. Thank, Jessica. :-D

    1. The Raven King is calling me - I have just one more book to finish then I can finally read it, yay! I hope you enjoy Blue Lily, Lily Blue. The whole series is just amazing, right? And yes, so much love for historical fiction girl power! I squealed just a tiny bit when I saw Tyranny at my library. :-D Thanks, Mallory!

    1. Thanks, AJ. Been trying to be a little more creative with my photos but I don't really have an eye for it, you know? Have a great one!

  5. Half Wild is one of the best books I read this year! The last book in the trilogy left me crying though!

    Enjoy your new books! :)

    1. I just finished Half Wild and I loved, loved, loved it! So good! I'm starting Half Lost now - and I'm fully prepared to be heartbroken. I haven't read many spoilers but I've seen enough 'sad' & 'heartbroken' comments to know I'll be crying. :-( Thanks for stopping by, Kyra. :-D

    1. Thanks, Krystianna! It was some good luck - the day of its release I was looking everywhere to buy it but couldn't find a copy, then I checked my email later and yay! It was meant to be. ;-) Happy reading to you too!

    1. I definitely have some great reading ahead of me. I'd been seeing This Monstrous Thing at my library so decided to give it a go. I enjoy retellings so figured why not! Thanks for stopping by, Barb. :-)

  10. Oohh The Raven King! I finished last night, and it was wonderful. :) Your picture of it is completely gorgeous, too! Is that flower real or fake? No matter what, I neeeeed one because the color is so pretty!

    I'm with you on stopping time! Let's do it! Then I could finally catch up on all these books I keep collecting! :D

    Have a great week!

    1. The Raven King is my next read! I just have to finish Half Lost and then I'll be devouring it. :-D I'm glad you loved it! The flower is fake. I love the colour too, as soon as I saw them I had to have them. Just too pretty. :-)

      My TBR is definitely at 'all is lost' levels, haha! The only way I'll ever get through it now is if I can stop time. Of course, doesn't stop me from adding more books to the pile! ;-) Thanks so much for stopping by, Rachel.

  11. Oooo, you got so many great books this week! I loved Golden - still one of my favorite YA contemporaries. I have Snyder's books on my TBR, as they are definitely my type of read. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my STS post!
