Kinslayeeeeeer. Rawr. Buruu!!!
Very excited to see what you think of The Burning Sky (I've read Sherry's adult HR and they were fun quick reads!) and Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer!

Ooooh, I WANT the fairy tales graphic novel, and also the "Stories of Death, Murder, and Revenge". The latter sounds like something I would LOVE. Although I am just going by the title.

I'm crossing my fingers for you to get a month ahead with your reviews so you can get to Kinslayer/whatever you want. Your review pile keeps holding you back! I'm currently two weeks ahead, and I'm hoping to speed ahead some more so I can be free.

The LARPing in The Summer I Became a Nerd is the best part. I want to do it too!

Australians are the best people ever, so it makes sense for the authors to be the best too :')

I love the cover of The Year of Shadows!

OHHH I can't wait to read your review of How I Lost You. I was SO disappointed with that one, but a lot of people liked it. And Belle Epoque. I was talking to someone about that one a few weeks ago and they were really enjoying it! I haven't decided if I want to read it yet or not, but I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Awesome haul!! So many awesome books!! I didn't watch your vlog yet, but I will get to it soon. I am running around a bit today, and then it's date night with the hubs and family day tomorrow.

Haha you're not the only one who confuses my twitter xD <3 I hope you love REALITY BOY!

I got ROGUE by Gina Damico too and I'm scared to start it because I'm not ready to lose the hilariousness that is her writing! I am totally jealous of THE SUMMER I BECAME A NERD because I LOVED that book when I got a PDF for review and I'd kill for a physical copy. And THE 100! AH! Reality Boy was your BEA book that you didn't get and The 100 was mine! So sad, but I plan on stalking your blog for the review so I can read it in spirit. The trailer for the tv show for it... oh my god, Christina!

I really need to read that Gina Damico series! I'm also considering buying a copy of The Summer I Became a Nerd because I loved that book, which you know. Definitely something to read when you're in a fluffy mood.

Ha! Glad to know my opinion carries such weight. But we do have pretty similar tastes.

THE 100 ARGH IM SO JEALOUS. I am so curious about that book. I feel like it will be either terrible or awesome. Or meh, i guess, but I'm thinking it'll get a strong reaction. Or at least I hope, because meh books are boring to read and write about. And I am so there for the TV show, which also has terrible/awesome potential

I loved The Burning Sky. It's not middle grade at all though it certainly is not the complex stuff high fantasy is usually made of. But it's fun, a lot of fun. I rather think you'll enjoy it.

You had an absolutely amazing book haul, Christina! I have Plague in The Mirror, Kinslayer, Belle Epoque and The Flame in The Mist on my wishlist, and Burning Sky for review as well, so I really hope you enjoy them all! :)) Have a great week!

LOL How I Lost you was good! I hope you like it, it feels like a Kenneally book so I have faith in you liking it. Holy book haul batman! I seem to keep ending up with verse novels lately and I don't know how I feel about that. I'll be trying out my first one soon, so wish me luck!

Woah, what an awesome haul o_O Yeah, so Kinslayer? Awesome. Even though I still haven't read Stormadancer, it's one of those books I have a haunch I'll obsess about. Plus stunning covers all around! Marie Antoinette Serial Killer sounds really brilliant, I wish I could have nabbed it at BEA. You made me remember that I had The Flame in the Mist on my TBR and still have not read it! I loved hearing that you've been told it's an awesome fantasy read cause now I've bumped it up my list. Oh and I've seen Belle Epoque around but it's the first time I've really noticed it - I swear I'm like a cat, you wiggled it in front of the camera and it caught my attention - yeah so I'll be looking it up and probably adding it to the list! Thanks for sharing & congrats on the goodies!

AGHHH I am so jealous you got Kinslayer. I really should have requested that but I didn't even think of it. If you feel like letting me borrow it though, I will love you forever. LOL.

Lyn loved The Year of Shadows so you will have to let me know if you do too. Out of all your YA Books Central books, I am most excited about Belle Epoque.
