  1. Oh I absolutely love having a nosy around people's bookshelves! You have some amazing books to look forward to Christina, I loved Roomies, it was such a cute book! I still need to read Mortal Heart and The Darkest Minds trilogy is fantastic so far, I still have the final book to look forward to. Happy reading! :)

  2. :D :D thanks, Jasprit. I am really happy to have these books and am looking forward to reading them. If you're in the mood for a read along, we could read Mortal Heart together? And perchance I'll catch up in the Darkest Minds too...

  3. Hey Christina I still need to read Dark Triumph, but as soon as I'm done I'll let you know! And you need to get onto The Darkest Minds asap! :)

  4. I've had Roomies forever and I still haven't read it. I need to read it soon!

    This is What Happy Looks Like is cute. I wish there had been more e-mail exchanges, to be honest. I actually liked The Geography of You and Me better. Have you read that one yet?

    The Retribution of Mara Dyer…I read it the first day it came out, I just couldn't wait. Can't wait to hear what you think…I've been participating on different discussions on Goodreads with people who have read it because it's just one of those books that you have to talk about.

    The Darkest Minds series…LOVED it.

    You have so many great books on your bookshelf! ~Pam

  5. If you want a reading buddy for Roomies, let me know!

    I haven't read The Geography of You and Me yet! I think the two friends who recommended me This Is What Happy Looks Like might have said something similar though? We'll see...

    Ha, I wanted to read it! I don't remember what was happening that day, but I had to put Mara Dyer 3 to the side.... but I'm really looking forward to reading it. I've heard it's really bloody and some people feel it's different from the others - I can see why you'd go to the discussion boards on GR if so.

    :) thanks, Pam! Now here's to reading all those books on my bookshelf!
