Okay. I think I just experienced my BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!! I’d like to say thanks send virtual huggles and kisses to Steph @ Chasm of Books and Hannah @ Book Haven for the awesomest blog posts ever! I did not expect to get hijacked by the birthday blog hijacker, I was actaully expecting Steph to be posting on my blog but turns out Hannah posted on here and Steph made a post of epicness on her own blog! As well as the awesome Liz @ Read-A-HolicZ  for taking the time to make me this awesome birthday banner! (Below) I LOVE YOU GUYS! I seriously need to get plotting for Steph’s birthday… I mean, HOW CAN I BEAT THIS EPICNES?!

AND ALL OF YOU! Seriously, my twitter feed exploded and so did my Goodreads inbox. You guys are all seriously the sweetest. (I’d list you all but I’d be here till next year) So I didn’t get many books this week but I believe I’m expecting some packages in the coming weeks. I told me friends and family NOT to buy me books as they’d probably buy a book I hated/already read. Instead, I got money, clothes, and plenty of other awesomeness that I’ve already forgotten about as I am racing against time to finish this post. (HUSH….) And the reason of this is because I am going birthday shopping!!! WHOOHOO!

Apart from that, I am posting all Courtney Summers related things this week! Teasers, reviews, general fangirling of Courtney Summers etc…

And if you are thinking of moving to WordPress all by yourself, take your time to check out this post from Nose Graze!

Anywho… that’s all from this week!

White Space- I am not sure about this one, but it’s worth a try.


Poison Study- Amelia once again! I haven’t read this but the reviews are really promising

Hunting Lila- One with many mixed reviews yet I think I’ll love it. THANKS JOHANNA YOU SWEETHEART!

Throne of Glass- I loved Crown of Midnight and this one was so-so. I decided to buy this because this, and the following books were 20 dollars all up! A very awesome bargain from a bookstore that’s closing down. 🙁

Breathe- I can’t wait for Resist and I couldn’t RESIST but get this! (I unPUNlogise)

Evernight- This savour is the one that got me into reading. If I did not read this, I would may never have ended up book blogging

Burn Bright- Aussie author, WHOO!

Skylark- I am reading These Broken Stars in a few months so may as well try this

Tomorrow When The War Began- AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!

Northanger Abbey- I have to read this one for school. I got a copy from my school library but it looked ugly so I got myself a better looking (and less damaged) copy

Let The Sky Fall- Looks sweet

~Thanks to Egmont USA, Amelia and Johanna!~

    I cannot wait for Antigoddess, either, hon. I loved her Anna series and you simply must read it! I’m glad you love your prezzies! I took some hunting to see what books you’d like.

    Happy birthday!!!

  2. I LOVE YOU TOO! Enjoy >.< Jelly about With Space, I loved her other series- which you simply must read ASAP. Have fun with Northanger Abbey- it's light hearted to say the least.

  8. I really enjoyed Hunting Lila when I read it at the start of the year so I hope you do too.
    Let the Sky Fall looks amazing and I love the cover. It’s not published in the UK though, which is sad.

  15. people usually know to get me a bookstore gift card if they want to get something book related instead of buying a book. Chances are I WOULD already have it. LOL Looks like you have a fun week coming up. I want to read more Courtney Summers.
