So guys, what did y'all get while I was gone? Anything that needs to be moved up on my To-read? I have all the time in the world! (:


  1. Awww, we missed you too :D

    OOOO, you got Across the Universe! I love that cover it - there are so many variations of the covers now! I love that series - I have to start Shades of Earth soon, but I'm SCARED!

    Hush, Hush is fantastic - an amazing start to a great series. I read Finale the other day and wasn't impressed by the last book, but it was a good ending. Hush Hush is amazing, Crescendo is pretty good, Silence is awesome, and Finale is, well, a good ending, but an ehhh, book. I would definitely recommend this series to you :D

    READ UNDER THE NEVER SKY SOON!!!! It is so good! And Through the Never Sky - well, let's just say Into the Still Blue needs to come out SOON! Ugh, but another year...

    Have fun with all of your books! :D

    My STS Post!

    1. Aww, thanks sweetie! *hugs*

      Yes! I think that I kind of like the original better, but you're right! They have so many covers for this series. Aah! I hope that you love it, because I haven't even started AtU yet!!

      Ooh, I can't wait to review it...again, LOL. My thoughts need to be said in a more coherent way than the first time, right?? (: I'm glad that you'd recommend it to me!! :D

      YAY!! I've heard that it's fabulous, but I haven't even read the first page yet. Hope that I love it!! :D I totally will have fun with my books!!

  2. Yay! Across the Universe and Hush Hush were great. Finale (Hush Hush #4) was horrible, though. The whole Across the Universe series was amazing. And I thought that Under the Never Sky was disturbing because of this one scene...then again, I'm in the minority that hated the book. Actually, the one percent. One percent. *Lets that fact sink in*. Yeah.....

    Well, once you read it, we should talk about it. I would love to know what you think and I can't wait for your review...even if you do love it.

    Great haul! Thanks for sharing and happy reading.

    1. Teehee, I'm glad you thought so! Hopefully I'll really like them, but we'll see! :D Ugh, that kind of sucks. I hate it when the ending isn't worthy! o_O Okay, now I'm scared. All I've heard are good things, so now I'm nervous that I won't like it! o_O One percent...eh, I feel like I'm the one percent that didn't like TFiOS, LOL! It's probably not that bad. ;)

      We totally should! Haha, thanks sweetie. You never know, I might be in the one percent too! ;)

      Thanks! Happy reading to you too! :D

  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR HAUL!!!! Ba-bam girl! It rocks!!!

  4. I absolutely love Across the Universe! I'm about to read the third book in the trilogy, I'm sad to see it end! I hope you love it and all of the other great books you got this week. Have a wonderful weekend, Megan!

    1. YAY! I really need to read that one soon, then. Aww, I'm always sad to see series' end too. :( I hope that I love them all too! Thanks, Katie!! <3

  5. Megan! Thanks for tweeting about my giveaway :) Wow, you've got a great stack of books there. The only one I've read is Across the Universe. My two sentence review would be something like,
    1. There are some things that are really bothering me in this book...
    2. Why can I not stop reading this book?!
    :) Ever had that reading experience?
    Overall, I liked it enough to pick up the sequel, and I'm waiting for the third one to show up at my library.
    Happy reading!

    1. You're welcome, girly!! (: It's been growing for several weeks, LOL! Wow. It seems like everyone has read AtU! I can't wait! Haha, yes, I have definitely read some books like that, LOL! That's good. Happy reading to you too, Sarah!! (:

  6. Awesome haul. I really want to start the Under the Never Sky series, must get onto that. The Real Mermaids books sound like fun, will have to check them out. I have Across the Universe sitting on my Kindle, yet to be read, hopefully soon. Happy reading, Megan.
