    I’m so glad you’re back – sorry you’ve been unwell! D:
    I really need to pick up Legend so I can read Prodigy when it comes out. 🙂
    I’ve literally JUST read the write-up for Paper Valentine, it looks incredible, I’ve already added it to my TBR list! 😀
    Happy Reading. ^.^

    Short and sweet haul this week Giselle! I dont konw why you recieved a copy of Prodigy … I probably made a mistake when I sent the spreadsheet in of who needed a book 😛 Opps! Sorry, lol. I haven’t read Article 5 yet, is it any good for a dystopian? (I do love them :P) Have fun with all the blog tours!

    I didn’t know you had a linky as well for STS! Next week I’ll have to add my link to both sites 🙂 Have a great week!

    Happy Reading!

    Great haul! I really liked “Paper Valentine”, and I’m really looking forward to “Prodigy”. I read “Legend” over Christmas break and really enjoyed it.

    Welcome back! That sucks, being sick in the new year, but it happens. Great looking books, I still need to read the first book by Marie Lu.
    As for your question, the title I’m most excited about right now is Boundless by Cynthia Hand, can’t wait to see what happens with that series!
    Have a good week!

    January 13, 2013 at 5:27 AM

    Oh Prodigy! I’d happily take it off your hands! 😀 lol
    I haven’t read Article 5 yet, but I’m looking forward to Breaking Point anyway!
    Happy reading!

    Welcome back, Giselle! You get invited on so many blog tours. -__- NOT FAIR. But I still need to read Kristen Simmons’ book, it sounds fantastic! And I’m so glad you loved The Space Between, I bet you’ll love Paper Valentine as well! Happy reading, Giselle!

    I hope Paper Valentine is good, it’s got such a pretty cover. And I’m keen to read Prodigy as I just read Legend.

    It’s great that you’re feeling better now 🙂

    I read The Replacement a couple years ago. It’s haunting but really beautiful, and you’re right, Brenna Yovanoff’s writing is lovely. I just thought The Replacement was a really cool idea, and it was a really good book (that I remember). VERY jealous about Prodigy. I’m super excited to read it. I’ve just been hearing all-around awesomeness about it, which just makes we want to the release date to come sooner!

    I hear Paper Valentine is great! Enjoy 🙂

    Ooo, Prodigy!!! I can’t wait to read that book!!! Not too long from now!!! And Paper Valentine – I haven’t read anything by Brenna Yovanoff, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy that book! I can’t view your video (it says something about being unavailable.).
