  1. I'm still working on my Vampire Academy collection. I have the 1st, 4th and 6th books XD Etiquette and Espionage is a novel I really want to add to my steampunk collection too. It sounds awesome and hilarious!

    I hope you enjoy these books! I'm interested to see what you think of A Shimmer of Angels and Darkest Minds. They're two books from netgally I haven't quite gotten around to yet.

    Anyway, happy reading!

    1. Thanks for dropping by! Gail Carriger's books are witty and hilarious, so I'm pretty much excited for her YA novel. Should make for an interesting and entertaining read.

  2. Oh my goodness, you got five books of Vampire Academy! I'm planning on buying them all so I can do a Vampire Academy reading marathon (since I never read any of Richelle Mead's books!) I need to get Etiquette & Espionage too - the cover looks so pretty when you actually hold it in your hands compared to when you look at it from your screen! :D
    Happy reading & thanks for stopping by my STS! (:

  5. Hmmm, now I really feel like the only person that has not started the VA series. I am always hesitant, because I am SO OVER VAMPIRES. But YAY for The Darkest Minds! Alexandra Bracken is such a great author - if you haven't already, you should check out her first book (unrelated to TDM), Brightly Woven. I love that book so much!

    Happy reading!

  6. Great new books! Especially The Darkest Minds and Asunder. I quite enjoyed those two! Unfortunately I wasn't crazy about Revolution 19, but I hope you enjoy it more than I did. :)
