This is what happens when I skip STS weeks....

Keep an eye out soon- I have a few giveaways up my sleeve!


  1. Great haul!! I picked up a few Armentrout books, but I still haven't read any of hers yet. I hear that the Lux series is great. Paper or Plastic looks really cute as well. Have fun trying all of the new recipes. I'm curious about the Good and Cheap recipes. I think I'll see if I can get it from Netgalley. Happy reading!!

    Here is my STS:

    1. I haven't read anything by JLA either, sometimes it feels like I'm the only one haha. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Awesome haul! The Vault of Dreamers sounds really interesting and I've seen the cover before-it's absolutely gorgeous. Conversion sounds pretty good too! I hope you enjoy your books. :)
