    I still need to read Girl of Nightmares (I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet), and I need to read the Lauren DeStefano trilogy! The book that has a map on the dust jacket is so cool. I got a few $4 books from Amazon this week too – yay! Great haul, Giselle!

    Here’s my book haul if you’d like to see what I got this week. 🙂

    Congratulations on hitting 1000+ followers on Youtube! You have great books this week, I haven’t started the Chemical Garden and The Wolves of Mercy Falls series yet but I heard they’re good! Hopefully I can start them soon. The Almost Truth sounds nice.
    Happy reading!

    Sever! Aaaah, can’t believe you have a copy! 🙂 I hope you LOVE it. I am so anxious to see how everything turns out… Hopefully, I’ll find it as great as I did the first two novels!

    I just bought the first 3 books on the Seven Realms series as well (couldn’t find the 4th in store for some reason at Costco). I’ve read some amazing reviews and I can’t wait to meet Cinda at the meet-up!

    Happy reading, Giselle! <3

    Those children books look so cute! The Boy Sherlock Holmes series also looks really good. The Seven Realms series is a great series, I’m sure you’ll enjoy them! I also got The Crimson Crown this week and I can’t wait to start it. I still need to read Fever, but I love the world and of course those gorgeous covers! Happy reading! 🙂

    I’ve never actually read any of the books in the chemical garden trilogy but I’ve always liked the covers and thought the synopses sounded interesting so I should give them a shot. I’m also really interested in reading any of Eileen Cook’s books. I remember looking them up one after the other and thinking they all sounded like something I’d enjoy. Looking forward to hearing your opinion on that one!
