    I cannot believe that I’ve watched your vlog twice and both times forgot to leave a comment, lol!
    Yay for meeting Tahereh Mafi! She’s one of the bestest ever! I hope to meet her in person one day too! Shatter Me, although, I’ve only read halfway so far, it is so good, cannot wait for it’s sequel!
    I am so very jealous of your Iron Fey hardback collection! They’re gorgeous! I’m waiting to get the paperback edition that is due to be release in the Fall…
    Frenzy looks like a cute, fun mag. I wonder, is it for CA only? I have yet to find anything here in the states that is similar to that.
    Thanks so much for sharing your stuffs again! Enjoy them all 🙂

    I have been staring at your ARC of Scarlet for about 2 minutes now and I am SO insanely jealous. Haha! I’m also happy that you received an ARC of it and can’t wait to hear what you think!

    I haven’t read Insurgent yet, but I have plans to get to it in July. So excited to see where Tris and Four are 🙂 I scored Dualed 2 weeks ago and am very curious to see if it is as good as it sounds!

    Hope you enjoy ALL of your lovelies 🙂 My book haul
