    I was fascinated by your seven year pen, so I had to go look it up and now I want one. I love to journal so that seems pretty cool. Nice haul.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS! I’m curious about Beta, it’s on my TBR list. I still have to read Crossed before I get to Reached. Great books!

    I also can’t wait to get my hands on the Matched series – it looks incredible. ^.^

    I didn’t do any Secret Santa things this year but now I’m wishing I had lol. I did one last year and it was a lot of fun. I’ve been wanting to read Haunting Violet for awhile…Alyx’s books are great, and that cover is so pretty! Happy reading, Giselle! 🙂

    I’ve heard mixed things about Beta, as well, but I still want to give it a try. I’m thinking maybe check and see if my library has it, because it does look awesome! Great haul, chica!

    I love your (accidental) purple theme! I think I might try Beta, but on the fence still.

    Beta was a book I was originally interested in, and then not so much after I read the reviews, but maybe I’ll still read it eventually.

    A lot of people seem to be fans of the Matched trilogy, but I originally found Matched a little underwhelming when I first read it. I definitely plan on re-reading it in the future to see if I still feel the same way though. It has happened before where I’ve loved books the second time around.

    Nice haul! I’m looking forward to Beta and Reached, but they all look good! Happy reading!

    You got some very excellent books. Great haul. The Mephisto Kiss looks awesome.

    I didn’t enjoy The Mephisto Covenant very much so I’m probably not going to pick up The Mephisto Kiss anytime soon.

    Although I love the sound of the Matched series. Now that all the books are out. I’ll probably be picking it up soon!

    Happy reading! 🙂

    I hope Reached is good. I recently finished Crossed and found it kind of meh. Have high hopes the series can be redeemed in book three.

    I am reading Beta now. It is very good. And I read Reached a couple of weeks ago and it was excellent. Hope you enjoy them too!

    Oh, I’ve heard such awesome things about Haunting Violet! It sounds quite good. 🙂 And I tried reading the Mephisto Covenant, but I couldn’t get into it. 🙁 I don’t think I’ll be trying out Beta, since there’s just too many negative reviews, but I’m glad you want to form your own opinion! Happy reading, Giselle 🙂
