  1. I just bought Insurgent through Audible. And I really want to read Wentworth Hall and Sweet Evil. Seriously... if they could stop releasing books just for a short time, I might be able to catch up... hahaha, no I wouldn't.

    1. Divergent was great on audio. I hope it's the same reader. I'm her fan. She also read The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller.

      Yeah, May is out of control. Hope things slow down a bit...

  3. Wentworth Hall totally has my attention!

    And the cover of Bitterblue...dang...I may actually have to clear off the reading calender to read Graceling and Fire, just so I can indulge in that cover! ((No, I haven't read them yet...they've been living indefinitely on the To Read list, haha))

    1. I have that one -- I need to read it as it will be one of my historical giveaways.

      Bitterblue does have a pretty cover. I bought that and am going to read it in the summer.

      Is Wanted part of a series? I read Compulsion but think that was a standalone...

      A friend is sending me When You Were Mine -- excited about that.

      I have not read the Wings series.

  6. Oh my gosh, is this the most awesome month for new releases? I have literally been sitting on my hands to keep from ordering Insurgent and Bitterblue (I'm typing this post w/ my toes in case you are wondering.) But seeing how I might need to use my hands in the immediate future, than I might, maybe, possibly be buying both very soon. And the Immortal Rules. Jeez...I have self control issues when it comes to books...

  10. May is such a huge book month! I'm so busy in general too because I have a bunch of blog tours I still have to read the books for, I have a ton of Netgalley books I need to read that are getting close to release date, and I have a ton of May releases I want to buy and read. And it's my B-Day! I've overwhelmed myself this month! The Breakaway by Michelle Davidson Argyle is also out today. I'm heading to Amazon to buy it right now as I love my kidnapping books!

  11. If only I could do nothing but read.

    Re FAKESTEPH's remark - I've never bought an audio book. Something I would like to know more about.

    1. I used to be firmly against audiobooks, but now I like them.
      See if your library has one you could try out. I download them directly from the library website and load them onto an iPod.
