  1. You have an awesome haul! I got Velveteen and Flirting in Italian on NetGalley, too! I'm a bit of a NetGalley-oholic now! And Insurgent looks SOOO pretty! I wouldn't know for real because it's on my iPad, but I really wish I had a hardcopy now. Maybe I'll just go to the store and take a picture of it and slap the cover onto the front of my iPad. ;) I hope you enjoy Pretty Amy and Social Suicide and EVERYTHING you got because they all sound SOOO completely awesome! :)

    Check out my Book Haul!

  11. Some of those covers were delightful to look at. I should probably go read Divergent now... I've seen a lot of people receiving Social Suicide, but I haven't seen too many reviews to help me get a feel for the book. Happy reading!

  14. Looks like you've got quite a few books to read. :) I picked up The Immortal Rules, Die For Me, Grave Mercy, and Out of Sight Out of Time from the library, so I've got some serious reading of my own.

  15. I got Velveteen too this week! It's taking everything in me to keep me from reading it. I went crazy on Netgalley even though I need to finish two blog tour books that are right around the corner. I also really want to read Insurgent!!! I can't wait for my copy to finally arrive. Happy reading!

    2. I just ordered all the series on DVD from Amazon. That was a first for me but that show just killed me. Now I am even more excited for Social Suicide! Thanks for the info!

    1. Well, without spoilers it's a little .... vague. But you can email me if you want to chat anytime..

      Delete
    2. I still need to read Original Sin.. I'm so behind

      Delete
    3. OMG -- so much crazy stuff goes down in Original Sin! I was like, whoa!!!!! Some of it was too much for me. My head was going to explode.

      So that's why my Last Rite review has to be vague. I would not want to spoil anyone's surprise.

  18. Ohh look at all those awesome books!! NetGalley approved so many titles for me last week. Looks like you got all of them this week lol!! I loved Pretty Amy and Insurgent. I still need to read Deadly Cool, I bought it last year. I keep almost buying Social Suicide to give myself a push.

  21. Nice haul! I got Insurgent this week, too (as did everyone, I think!), but I'm going to reread Divergent first before I read it. I really want to read Hanging by a Thread and Unspoken, too. Hope you've had a great weekend!
