  1. I love getting discounted books…makes you have an excuse to buy more! XD The Looking Glass Wars! That book is pretty awesome. Not to mention you got Shades of Grey. ZOMG, I want that book.

    Hope you enjoy! ^^

    • Thanks! Discounted books are the best! I always try to go bargain hunting before I buy books at their retail price (books can be so expensive >.<)

      I just started reading The Looking Glass Wars and have mix feelings about it, but Shades of Grey looks pretty awesome :3

  2. DISCOUNTS!!! πŸ˜€

    You got a couple of books that I absolutely loved: The Looking Glass Wars and The Mysterious Benedict Society. I loved #1 because I’m an Alice Dork and #2 because, well, the kids in that book are seriously awesome with their cleverness. Plus, I loved all the wordplay! Be sure to pay attention to the names of the characters and how they look. One woman in the book is described as pencil-looking and she is called #2 πŸ˜›

    I have Shadow and Bone in my TBR pile and have the second volume of Umineko on my TBR list (Beatrice looks so insane).

    • I started reading The Looking Glass Wars, but put it down for the moment in favor of reading Shadow and Bone. I didn’t know about the wordplay and names in The Mysterious Benedict Society, but I’ll on the look out for that now πŸ™‚ Also, I actually don’t mind Beatrice’s insane look. The characters in Umineko have looked crazier before lol

      • Definitely look out for the word play πŸ˜€ I don’t mind Beatrice looking insane at all. It was more like an observation. I actually like it when characters in manga look insane. Crazy faces are kind of my ‘thing.’ What I DON’T want to be on the cover of one of the volumes is Battler’s perve face. It probably won’t be but you never know πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow! What a colourful bunch you got there. I had to check shades of grey on good reads. Sounds awesome, but I might need to know what you think of it first πŸ˜€ I have been delaying reading the White Cat series for about a year now, I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because the original cover was so cheesy, I was never interested. Awesome book haul though!

    • I actually didnt notice the colors until you pointed it out πŸ˜€ I haven’t read many dystopian books, but I’m looking forward to Shades of Grey. Apparently Jasper Fforde is a good author and his Thusday Next series looks good too.

      I agree, I didn’t like the original covers for the White Cat series at all. I think the new ones are a better redesign.
