This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week.


I am being bullied by homework lately. It’s really awful- as I am getting less time to read and everything.

Other than that, an epic post went up on my co-blog, Finding Bliss in Books about Blythe, Kate and my own craziness, the answers to the Getting Tio Know You post! Drop by and leave a comment here.

And a shout out to Stephanie at Chasm of Books! Go follow her and read this post about an upcoming giveaway!

An update of my eARC ban: I had to request three books as I am going on tour from Edelweiss and NetGalley but I think we’ve all agreed from a while ago that it really doesn’t count. 😀

    Ah, I’m so curious to see what you think of Two Boys Kissing and Golden! I thought Golden was lovely 🙂

    Also really curious what you think of Shadow and Bone! Some have been raving over it, others are like ‘just another typical YA’. Hope you get to it soon!

    I know some might consider it cheesy, but I actually quite like the cover for Wild Cards. xD You haven’t read S&B?! Get on that, Mel! ASAP. ;D

  16. The Great Gatsby is my favorite classic. I know they often get pushed aside for recent releases, but YOU SHOULD READ it. Also another book I love here? Looking for Alibrandi. It’s Marchetta’s first book, but so far it is my favorite, and I believe it is underappreciated. 🙂
