What’s been happening lately…

By the time you are reading this, I am at the Melbourne Show scaring myself on the rides and wasting money on show bags. So yeah, I’m having an awesome time. Sorry for the rushed post, but I had to do this on Saturday, last minute. 😉

So, many of you follow me on Twitter and may have thought it really weird that I, queen of wimps was asking for horror/thriler recommendations. And y’all know why very very very soon on Finding Bliss in Books- my co-blog.

Just Finished Reading…

The Fall of Five
I liked it but the mass of characters let down many other points in this book. My review went up yesterday.

Book of the Week:

The Little PrinceKate got me this book along with other goodies and I started it and I am LOVING IT! I swear it’s gonna be a favourite and I think everyone needs to give this one a shot.

~What happens when I get autoapproved by HarperTeen, Greenwillow, Katherine Tegen and Balzer and Bray!~
Just Like Fate- I really enjoyed Cat’s books so I’m curious about what she can do with a co-author!

Wild Awake- Blythe really enjoyed this so I’m willing to give this a shot despite so many mixed reviews

Sweet Damage- Creepy looking book O.O

Sea of Shadows- I liked Kelly’s YA series and I love the cover and title for this

Uninvited- Really interested about this one…

House of Ivy & Sorrow- I haven’t read anything from this author but I heard her writing is pretty good

Ask Again Later- It’s all about the cuteness!

All That Glows- The cover. *cries* Don’t let me down

Faking Normal- I love the synopsis! It’s the type of genre I’m loving lately apart from YA contemporary fluff

Avalon- Awesome cover. Epic. Kickass. Badass.

Her Dark Curiousity- I am reading the first one really soon

The Lure- I’ve always wanted to try this for some reason

Salvage- Just amazing synopsis

Dear Killer- The title says it all

Elusion- Prettiness

Into The Still Blue- Remember by Courtney Summer’s week? I’m thinking of doing it with this series early next year

Panic- I was disappointed with Requiem but I hope I will like this

No One Else Can Have You- Is the title and cover as bad as the story? I’m curious.

    I’m currently reading Into The Still Blue and it is loving up to book 1 and 2 so far! I held back on downloading Sea of Shadows because even though I loved her YA series I’m not too sure about this one yet. Think I’ll wait for more reviews before deciding. 🙂

    Woha what a great haul girl! 🙂 I cannot wait to read No One Else Can Have You. You have no idea how interested I’m in that book but I’m trying to control myself cause I want to read and review the book closer to publication date. 🙂
    Amazing haul and I cannot wait to see what you think of Anna 😉

    • Melanie says:

      No One Else Can Have You don’t look appealing but the synopsis is intriguing enough, I’m trying to restrain myself from picking any of them up- I have dates marked down on my calendar for when I should be reading them >.<

  7. Jasprit says:

    Oh I’m really liking the cover to your Wild Awake, it looks so dark and mysterious! Also yay for the auto-approvals on Edelweiss, I don’t blame you for going crazy, there’s just too much awesomeness up there right now! Enjoy! 🙂

  8. Alise says:

    Congrats on getting auto-approved 😀 So many awesome books here, I can not wait to see some reviews. I’m pretty curious about Uninvited and Sea of Shadows. Enjoy!

    Great haul! I LOVED Just Like Fate. It’s one of my favorites of 2013. Can’t tell you how much I loved it lol >.<
    I really really wanna read All That Glows! The cover looks so good you gotta tell me how you like it

    Happy Reading!

  13. I’m probably the only one who hasn’t read THE LITTLE PRINCE yet, but I want to! I mean, just LOOK at those illustrations. I could stare at them forever and not get bored one bit. <3 So glad to hear that you're enjoying it!

    And THAT HAUL. Now I'm feeling incredibly pissed because I sent it requests for all those books more than two months ago, and HarperTeen hasn't responded to me yet. But overall, I'm just really angry at Edelweiss for being such a pain to work with. That, and the fact that publishers seem to hate me a lot on there. No idea why! But I'm looking forward to what you think of all these — many of them are on my wishlist.

    Have a fabulous week, Melanie!

    • Melanie says:

      I thought Edelweiss hated me coz the pubs never respond to my requests but then Harper autoapproved me and I was like: YAY!

      I hope they respond soon, hun!

  14. Wow, what a fantastic haul this week Mel! You’ve had a few review copies there that look amazing! I haven’t ventured into Edelweiss yet but I know I would go crazy with requesting again. Enjoy your books!

  15. Whipple’s writing is really good, even though I thought Transparent was just okay for me. I think I even said in my review that I would read her next book. So I’m looking forward to The House of Ivy & Sorrow.
