  1. There are so many books there that I want to read! And a few I have actually read! I can tell you that I thought Code Name Verity was SO AMAZING INSTANT FAVOURITE and a novel I need to buy & reread one day. And Eon is a bit slow at first, but the pace eventually picks up until you get to the awesome(and cliff hanger) ending.

    1. I had to get Code Name Verity because of all the good things I was hearing about it. As for Eon, I have to read through a lot of books before I get to it. :) Thanks for dropping by!

  2. The Assassin's Curse!!! And you each have your own copies. I think it would be cute to have a picture of you two reading the same book, totally absorbed. Haha!

    I've heard nothing but good things about Code Name Verity so I hope you'll enjoy it! And update us girls about Altered! :D

    If I Lie is a really good novel too!
    Thanks for stopping by my STS & my favorite Lisa Kleypas book is Tempt Me at Twilight too! I just love how Harry redeemed himself & how he managed to win Poppy's (and mines) hearts! (:

    1. I keep rereading and rereading Tempt Me at Twilight, and I must confess that I still love it. I love it when he was so sullen and pouty, and Poppy was just unable to resist him! They're just really cute and perfect together. (And I'm hearing a lot of good things about If I Lie, so -crosses fingers-)

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  26. Wonderful haul. I loved Code Name Verity, The Assassin's Curse and Eon. I've got The Iron Wyrm Affair on my kindle and got Dodger at an author event when it was released; so have to read them. The other titles are all new to me, but they sound great. Happy reading.

  29. Ooh, look at these goodies. Some books I've heard of, others I haven't. And I wasn't a huge fan of Fallen. I'd definitely be begging for my copy of Croak back, lol.
