Shadow and Bone was actually a book I read a galley of, and loved so much I then went to go buy a copy! I still need to read Struck and Monument 14 and I have a feeling I'd like both of them! I love hearing about about your friendships with other bloggers! Go book trades!

I seriously need to read Shadow and Bone soon (I've had my copy for well over a month now) but it's just that library books always get shoved in front of my TBR pile because I need to return those things. And it's also my fault too--the library is too addictive, I just want to pull everything off the shelves.

I'm lovin' The Wild Party's cover to bits! And...it's a poem? Like, one big poem?

I haven't heard of Dash & Lily's Book of Dares before, and I only recognize Coh for her upcoming book, BETA (which I'm kinda on the fence about reading).

OOOO, so many blue books!

I was so excited to see there's a fifth Enchanted, Inc. book coming out, I'd actually just looked to see if another one was being published a couple of weeks ago but then I was annoyed to find out it's ony coming out in e-book format. Boo!

Hahaha, I totally used to do that with the library. Now my review pile is the library. lol.

The Wild Party isn't all that long, but it does appear to be just one poem. So...one long poem.

I'll be reviewing Beta next month. I haven't heard great things.

YES! So excited other people know this series! I wish it were coming out in a paper format too, but I'll take what I can get, because I adore that series!

Wowza, that is quiet the haul, girl! There are several books in there I recognize, but haven't had a chance to read. I do see a lot of good reviews for them though, so it looks like you're in for an awesome time! :-D

For sure! It's always an awesome time with books!

Funny how after seeing Dash & Lily's Book of Dares mentioned, I saw someone raving about it on a book blog yesterday...ok, maybe it's just me being unattentive.

ugh, long poems...I remember I was assigned this 16page poem for English. I skimmed it..and didn't know what was going on. Fail moment.

I'll look out to your BETA review. I had high hopes since sci-fi dystopians are right up my alley.

Blue seems to be a popular book cover color. It's also my favorite color. But a few days ago I was looking at my goodreads widget and thought "THERE'S TOO MUCH BLUE!!UGH! I NEED A BALANCE OF COLORS! I NEED TO READ MORE RED!"
must be the art major in me being bothered by trivial matters.

I'm not a huge poetry person. I'm really more interested in the poem for the artwork by Art Spiegelman. :-p

I have high hopes too, because I like good books and I'm reading it anyway.

Blue is also MY favorite color. It is the best. I have good color variety in my goodreads widget right now. Clearly, I am better than you. LOL.

::HUG:: Thank you so much for all the kind words! You are the best <3 I am so glad you got the package and that Shadow and Bone is now on your shelf :-) I've been curious about Monument 14 and am interested to hear what you think. Emmy Laybourne is hilarious in the flesh and I wonder if that spills over into her writing?

Ironskin and Send Me a Sign are supposed to be amazing! So glad you received those, too :-) Maybe we can do an Ironskin read-a-long!

Enjoy all your lovelies, Christina! xoxo

*HUGSSSSSS* You may have kind words anytime. :) I also realized belatedly that they're all SIGNED. At first, I typed singed, which would NOT be a good thing for a book to be. Haha. I liked Monument 14 and it did have funny moments, but a lot of readers had big issues with it. My review goes up on Friday.

Ooooh, I could totally do an Ironskin readalong, so long as it's not during August.
