  3. Once again I'm just amazed at the hauls you manage to bring in, and I'm still SO jealous! I didn't get any books this week, BUT my copy of Frozen came in the mail today, and that's based off of a book, does that count? xD I'm entered to win a copy of Plus One, and I'll be really excited if I win! These books all look great, and I can't wait to read your reviews ^_^

  4. Ohhh, I LOVE the Lunar Chronicles! Is this your first time reading them?? They're awesome. Scarlet is my favourite, but Cress is pretty close. I did love Cinder, but it took me a bit to get into. The humour is...omg, very very funny. xD

    1. Doesn't it? I know that's not how you should judge a book but it's hard not to with a cover like that.

      I've read the first two and LOVED them. I definitely recommend them!

  33. I eyed that Cakes and Cupcakes one, but then I thought I'd better not since my son can't eat eggs and those things are a pain to bake without using them. I have Plus One to read too. Thanks for stopping by!
