  1. Ohhh, I just got a bookmark for The Darkness Shows the Stars, and because I like shiny pretty things my head was instantly turned. And did I mention I haven't actually read a Holly Black book? But I've heard really good things about them!

  3. I just finished Storm a couple days ago (I liked it!) and will be reading The Golden Lily soon after my friend finishes it :-)

    I just recently added Shift to my TBR. Looking forward to your review on the that one! For Darkness Shows the Stars sounds like an interesting read too! :-)

  4. I decided to do what I say I won't do but always end up doing...start another book while reading two others. I picked up The Immortal Rules from my huge TBR stack and it ROCKS! I was frankly disappointed by Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series but so far I believe this book shows some serious promise. My only gripe is that the writing is a little abrupt, as in the sentences are very choppy but that may just be the voice of the main character. She is a young and rough around the edges so I guess we can see how she develops over time. But I am so excited to read a book that I would recommend! It's been awhile!

    And nothing's really new with me this week other than I have graduated 6th grade Chinese school, but then I found out I have to skip a grade if I don't want to take my last year of Chinese school in sophomore year, which is supposedly really busy -.-

  21. OHMYGOD!!! I'm practically SALIVATING at those piles of books, ESPECIALLY that last pile. Being a Jane Austen fan, I'm DYING to read "For Darkness Shows the Stars", and "Tokyo Heist" just sounds really cool. Plus, I've been DYING to read "Storm", just look at those gorgeous boys on the cover, and I'm sure the author has made their characters just as dreamy! :D
