I've had spider-free week, Christina, but only because it's still quite cold here. Plus our cat really doesn't eat anything that is not in his or our plates, so it's highly unlikely he'll come and eat a spider when we really want it to happen :))) Yay for Angelfall replacement and for a lovely copy of One. I quite like the cover. Enjoy all your reads and happy Sunday! :)

I've noticed that cats never go after critters when they're called. They're all "I do what I want" and stuff. Ugh. (But we love them.)

It looks like you got some nice books this week. I expect Phoenix to be as awful as Black Rising. (Look at me becoming all crotchety.) I've decided that I really like the cover of One. I may even make a point to read it.

You can wait as long as you like with Shatter Me. It won't hurt my feelings. I just needed to get it out of my house and to someone else.

Sorry, the appearance of your adorable cat made me spazz out. There are never any spiders in my house, but my littlest cat Dodo Bird (so nickname for a reason) is the worst hunter in the history of cats. She would rather play with live bugs and make ME kill them. And one of her hobbies? BRINGING ME LIVE LIZARDS THAT I HAVE TO DECAPITATE. She recently got tapeworms from one of the lizards she was playing with, so maybe she'll quit bringing them to me.

Anyway, books. I have a feeling you won't like Shatter Me much unless you find Warner of the no marbles fun. That's pretty much why I'm reading on: he entertains me. That and I love Foe Yay. It's kinda funny seeing the ARC without the cover because I had one of the later ARCs that DID have the cover. Mmm, Angelfall. So much fun, it was! But yeah, I'm whatever on the rest of the books because I'm not interested in them and/or they're sequels to books I'm not interested in.

Freakin' spiders! That's one thing I don't miss about Australia.

Phoenix confuses me, because the covers of that series are pretty but the reviews are not that great. Oh, I don't know!

You should read Angelfall soon, it's how I wish all angel books were done!

Okay your cat is ADORABLE. He's like "Mommmm, put me down!"

Oh, Shatter Me. Well, after Unravel Me I'm so conflicted. I'm looking forward to seeing your thoughts, girl!

I can't wait to see what you think of Shatter Me...I don't think you'll like it either! Although I think the "Chapter 62" thing is in the sequel Unravel Me, not the 1st one...

ONE looks absolutely gorgeous as an actual book, and Leigh Anne seems super nice!!! Can't wait to read that one!

Omg the cat bahahaha he makes me laugh every week. I can't wait to see what you think of Angelfall, I really loved it but I didn't expect to so it was a welcome surprise. Phoenix bleh I was not a fan of Black City at all. I hope you enjoy the new goodies!

Ha, the bugs are starting to come out. We've officially hit spring weather here in Atlanta. Percy's pretty good about eating bugs, but he has to find them on his own. If I try to point them out to him, he'll have none of it. His favorites are flies.

I'm hoping to love One!

Blogger Christina said...

Hahaha, yeah. That's cats in a nutshell. Such jerks. But they're so cute. *sighs*

Ugh. Phoenix. I liked Black City okay, but my interest in reading more was never high. Oh well, I'll try it, though.

I'll read Shatter Me fairly soon. I've decided sending a copy jumps a book to the top of the queue.

Percy is the cutest. I love his furry face. And how, even though he didn't want me to do that to him, he really didn't fight at all. Haha. I've worn him down.

I will never be mad at anyone for spazzing about a cat. Also, I could not behead a lizard. AHHHHHHHHHH. I will have nightmares now.

Warner's pretty much the only possibility. I'm reading because I want to find out about chapter 62 in Unravel Me.

Oddly, I didn't actually know Angelfall was about angels. I feel dumb.

I hate bugs of all kinds, except for butterflies and lightning bugs.

The reviews aren't all that great for a reason.

Hahaha, yeah, he's like that a lot. But he loves me and puts up with me.

I bet I will have THOUGHTS.

Oh yeah, it's in book two, but I have to read book one to read book two. I do know that.

She is super nice, and I hope I love it!

Percy's such a star. I better love Angelfall or everyone will be sad.

A CAT. My heart is won over. Also, Angelfall is THE SHIT. Ahh, I hope you love it :)

My cat's in a lot of my vlog's (mostly against his will). People like him better than me. Ahhhh, everyone loves Angelfall. I really don't want to be the black sheep!

What's with your blog and the spiders lol!! Are you trying to scare me away? *sobs* Okay, your cat is so mellow. It's super cute. You got some great books. I got One too and it sounds awesome! My friend gave me Angelfall for Christmas and I have been meaning to get to it. Giselle said it's awesome. Great haul babe!

No, that is not my thing. It's NOT.

Percy's pretty mellow in general. He knows who's responsible for giving him food and petting!

I love your cat. He's so big and cuddly and I like big and cuddly animals. And he like seriously does not give a fuck. Which is even better. Neither does my dog and I flip her over on my lap and hold her like a small child and she stays there. It's insane.

A Tale for the Time Being! So...I went ahead and bought it. It should be here on Friday. I just have no willpower and I do not do waiting well. So yeah. Just thought you should know. :D

Blogger Christina said...

Haha, Percy sometimes does give a fuck, but he's usually pretty good about going along with what I want. He was being especially chill that day.

Hahaha, I think you'll like it.
