Such awesome books. Though I haven't begun the Valente series, I'm totally looking forward to them and the third book looks as amazing as all the rest. As always, I hope you enjoy them books.

You and Tatum are making me want to read The Girl Who... series. I NEED to read it right now. I will get to it soon, I hope.

Ooooh, Boxers and Saints sound great too. I've been really getting into graphic novels lately. Well, I've been wanting to buy a lot of graphic novels, but I haven't had much money before now so I've had to wait :D

Awww I hate allergies!! Hope they go away quick!! Boxers and Saints both look good. I am really bad with direction when I am looking at the screen too lol!! I'm always on the opposite side or something. I haven't read the second book in the Razorland series, but I really did want to. Though, after the direction I heard it went maybe I'm glad that I didn't. I think the romance would make me sick. Anyways, great haul babe!! Enjoy!

Ah, Catherine M.Valente's writing is absolutely glorious! I adore her although I only read Deathless. Also interesting graphic novels, Christina! I'll be looking forward to your reviews. Enjoy all and hope your allergy goes away soon!

I also need to catch up on the Razorland series! Those aren't my favorite but they're good enough. I cannot WAIT for the new Fairyland book... if you loved the first one I think you'll love the 2nd even more. I know I did at least. :)

Jealous about the Valente book! I got to meet her and I have a signed #1, but I still haven't read it. I'm making m book club read it later this month!

*looks at copy of Enclave she bought two years ago* I so need to start reading this series, since I've seen such vastly different opinions on it from various people!

Ahhhhh, you will love them. I'm pretty certain in this case. I WILL enjoy them books. I think.

I hope they're awesome. I love graphic novels, but they're expensive like whoa, and I don't want to spend money on something I don't already know I'll love at that much expense. I get why they're more expensive, but I can't.

Ugh, me too. They're pretty persisten. *sighs* They look awesome. I probably won't be reading them until August or September, but I'm excited. I'm afraid I won't like the Razorland books anymore either, but I hope to be the variant opinion on book two. Or something.

Valente's writing made me seriously happy. I wish I could write like that. *admires* Deathless is on my list to read also.

Yeah, I LOVED Enclave when I read it, but I was also pretty new to dystopian fiction, so...who knows what will happen this time.

That's awesome! Also, nice use of book club!

Yeah, I'm going to be rereading Enclave, since I hardly remember it. We'll see how this goes, since I am such a different reader now than I was then.

I've been wanting to read the Fairyland series FOREVER. The covers are prettyyyyy and I've heard amazing things about them. Might be time I order the first one :) I also think the Boxers/Saints concept is so interesting. Hope they're good!

The first one was so awesome, and I've heard it gets better! Weeeeeeee. Also, yes, excited for the graphic novel too!

YES to everything you had to say about Cat Valente's Fairyland. Love those books so much. I hadn't even heard of The Path of Names, but it does sound like a decent MG. I agree The Boy on the Bridge cover is terrible, but hopefully the book is better!

OMG You got Fairyland #3!! I *just* featured that on my WoW last week (I think?) - even though I still need to read # 2 first. I couldn't agree more with you on EVERYTHING you said about Fairyland and Catherynne M. Valente's writing ā™„ I've read Gene Luen Yang before but it was the Avatar: the Last Airbender manga...loved it though! Oh and I still need to read the Razorland series but I'm kind of scared too since I heard one of the love-interests is beyond questionable o_O Anyways sweet haul, enjoy!
