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

What’s been happening lately…

Hello there loverlies! I am starting school tomorrow so if you stop seeing posts, I means I died in the desperation to not go to school. WAIT. Nevermind. That can’t happen because…


Other than that piece of craziness, what’s also very exciting is that over on my co-review blog, Finding Bliss Fright in Books, we are posting Halloween awesomeness all month! So if there is the absence of me on here, that probably means on over there posting reviews, giveaways and interviews! I’ll try my best to link you guys up but sometimes if I get too busy, you can only hope that my right sidebar is updated >.<

Just Finished Reading…

Just Like Fate
This was really meh. I had high hopes for I really enjoyed some of Cat Patrick’s solo novels but this just wasn’t for me. *sigh*

Book of the Week:

Dorothy Must DieOkay. So I have decided because it’s Halloween, I’m going to be sharing some books that I cannot wait to read either published or not published. Read the synopsis, peeps! It’s epic. Pure epicness.

Coming Up this Week:

  6. Model Misfit! Eeeppp! I was lucky enough to meet Holly on Monday and she is the nicest person ever. Seriously! Geek Girl is definitely worth a read.

    Happy reading, Melanie!

  8. I was in the middle of reading Truly Madly Deadly and then someone ruined the ending for me. But it’s an intense thriller so I hope you enjoy it. I’m going to be reading Girl of Nightmares for Halloween too this month and I bought Antigoddess a few weeks ago. Enjoy all your books! πŸ™‚

  9. I really hope Dorthy Must Die gets picked up by the CW for a pilot! The premise sounds like it would be awesome for tv. And good luck with school! And for House of Hades — I think I’m the only person who hasn’t read the Percy Jackson series. But I watched the movies though.

  10. YAY, you got Ashes to Ashes! Waiting on my ARC, but I’m looking forward to that one. And DOUBLE YAY for Antigoddess. I have a feeling that one is going to freak you out, because oh, the descriptionssss. And let me know when you want to start The Waking Dark!

  11. Rachel says:

    I have The Walking Dead as well and I hope we both like it! Truly, Madly, Deadly had some mixed reviews but I’ve always been attracted to it because of the mystery aspect. Can’t wait to see what you think, Melanie! Enjoy all your reads! πŸ™‚

  12. I’m going to read Anna Dressed in Blood for Halloween! Plus I have a lot of mysteries that I want to clear out of my to-read list, so I have the perfect excuse πŸ˜€ You have great books! I’ve been wanting to read the Geek Girl series, but haven’t actually bought any of them… anyways, enjoy all of your books!

  13. Too bad you didn’t like Just Like Fate, but based on the few reviews I’ve read, I’m fairly convinced I wouldn’t either. However, I love seeing Immortal Rules among your books, that one was so much better than its predecessor.
    Happy reading, Mel.

    Lol, Mel. I can’t wait for House of Hades! I wanted to pick it up at B&N but I don’t think that’s going to happen so I’m going to order it tomorrow. One day shipping of course. Nice haul.

  15. Celine says:

    Haha, please keep yourself alive, Mel! It’d be a shame if you choked in the shower and then you wouldn’t be able to read HoH anyway πŸ˜›

    Nice haul! I can’t wait to discuss Antigoddess with you, I’m very curious if you felt the same way I did.
    Celine recently posted…Review: Antigoddess by Kendare BlakeMy Profile

  16. Hmm, I haven’t been hearing too much great stuff about JUST LIKE FATE, but I’m still sorry that it didn’t turn out as well as you’d expected! I’m pretty sure I won’t be reading this book, but — looking forward to your review! And YES to DOROTHY MUST DIE. Possibly one of the most original blurbs I’ve read, and what’s especially intriguing is that it’s from the perspective of a villain! Now THAT’S wicked. (See what I did there? ;D)

    And great haul as always, Melanie! I can’t wait for your reviews on ANTIGODDESS, THE WAKING DARK, and THE IMMORTAL RULES. They all sound so amazing, and TMR was actually one of my favorite reads of 2012.

    Have a lovely week, hon! Don’t let school drag you down. xx

  17. Have you read Immortal Rules yet? It is AWESOME! It’s a shame you didn’t like Just Like Fate much, guess it can be a bit typical but I’ll look forward to your review too. Lucky you for Antigoddess, I saw it at the book store and will have to grab it some time, lots of awesome reviews for that one coming out! Great post this week Mel!
