  7. What a lovely haul, Jill! Are you a certified brony? Being a Filipino, I do not have any opportunity to watch MLP. I've heard a lot of great things about it though since there are many Perfect World international players who love watching the installment.

    I also have Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon tattoo trilogy. I loved the 3 movies (the one with Noomi Rapace in it) but the books really intimidated me so they are still stuck in my TBR pile.

    Good haul!

    Thanks for stopp ing by my Thoughts and Pens

    1. I hate to say I'm a brony, but I do love that show. I thought I'd hate it (my girlfriend made me watch it) and I became addicted!

      I have only read the first book, but I loved the movies. I have to say, I do love me some Rooney Mara!

      Thanks for the visit :)

  18. Great haul this week! I've been wavering back and forth on whether not to request Hear Beat and 4 to 16 Characters; they both sound good but I have so many ARCs already to get through. (I'm trying to be choosier because I feel like I'm not having a good review to request ratio as of late, haha.)

    I'm also jealous of all your HK gear. Enjoy all your new pretties!

  63. 4 to 16 Characters sounds like it could be interesting. Did you like the other two novels in Stieg Larsson's trilogy? I read the first one and made it halfway through the second when I watched the original Swedish films and felt like there was no need to finish the rest (even though I'd like to eventually).
