I also heard so many fabulous reviews of Seraphina, that I'm very much looking forward to this book. Enjoy all your fab reads!

I would love a code!!!

Also, I started Seraphina yesterday, an I am so blown away by its awesomeness right now. So, jealous of your finished copy! Books really just are not as pretty when they are digital (like the one I have).

I hope all is well with you. If you ever want to talk, or have YA book discussion distraction, I am here.

Random Buzzers is international, I believe. However, I don't think they ship books internationally (yet, at least). So maybe just sign up and we'll save the code for someone else? Unless you have friends/family in the US you could have them ship the book to that would then send it along to you?

I'd also love a code :) I found this blog by searching about YA heroines... since then I have been following it and LOVE it, finally got a blogger (XD) and I'm happy to be able to comment on it. You can tweet me at @xxrisa17 :)

Soo...I wrote you a message earlier, but it didn't publish because I was logged in on the wrong google account. Balls! Anyway, here is the gist...

I'm sorry you're having such a rough week! I really hope things turn around soon.

I am all set for summer reading, but thanks so much for offering :) Definitely do a giveaway for that book, and I'm sure I will borrow your copy eventually. haha.

I'd like a code, too, if they haven't all been claimed.

I do that wrong Google account thing all of the time. It sucks a bag of dicks.

Coolio, bud. You'll like Seraphina!

Anyway, there are still codes left: 2. One after you.

Being the book hoarder that I am, of course I would love a code (tweeting me at @lilboxism would be great)

Both books are on my watchlist, and I would love to hear your thoughts on it (especially Seraphina!)

I hope your week will get better, and be only filled with good things! *hugs*
two book reviews a week and it's already a bad week? Shucks! Then my weeks must be atrocious, or I am a very slow reader...or I am just distracted by cats on YouTube...yep, it must be those cats.

Yay! I'll send you the last code after I get home. I don't have them with me.

Seraphina is really good so far. I love the way she writes.

Thanks! I hope everything is filled with good things too.

Two a week is really bad when I'm doing a 366 book challenge...

I don't know what you've been dealing with, but ::hugs:: you'll get through it, and we're all here to help and support <3

I bought A Temptation of Angels at Teen Book Con in April and have not yet read it, though I want to. The cover really IS gorgeous! Michelle Zink is a lovely woman and gives the very best hugs :-)

The Testament of Jessie Lamb sounds/looks really good. I'll have to check that one out. I read Swipe and enjoyed it, so I think I'll request Sneak, too.

Hope you enjoy all your lovelies and that this week is the best one yet <3

I love that all of my digital books this week were dystopias. That's right. I have my priorities well sorted. :D

Thanks for the support! It totally helps!

You got a hug? Nice! I love hugs! Michelle Zink does seem super nice, what with how she gave out her extra ARCs. :)

This looks like a great lineup. I can't wait to try Seraphina. Happy reading.
