  1. Awhhh, those two books from Netgalley look adorable! Cybele's secret <3 I love that book. I need to get Ella Enchanted, I quite like the movie. I can't wait to see what you think about The hero's guide, this book has been on my wish list for a while now. Towering and Grim where 'meh' to me, but I hope you enjoy them!

    Happy reading :)

    1. You haven't read Ella Enchanted? That's shameful! It's only one of the greatest fairy tale retellings of all time, and you've read even more than I have. The movie is fun, but can't be compared to the book at all. Now I'm going to be pestering you until you read it!

  2. Ella Enchanted does look beautiful. I haven't read Ella Enchanted, but I plan to at some point. I just need a month devoid of other expectations to sit back and read fairy tales. I can't wait to read Infinite. I still need to read Phionex Overture. I look forward to what you think of Love Letters Dead. It has such a pretty cover that I would love to read it. Good Luck

    1. You haven't read Ella Enchanted, either? I think it's time for a read-along! I've been meaning to read Phoenix Overture as well. Thanks for visiting!

  3. Great great haul. I loved Infinite, such a good conclusion to the series. Those books from Netgalley look adorbs!!!

    1. I've heard nothing but good things about Infinite! The Grimmtastic Girls books were too cute to pass up, and I can't wait to read 'em!

  4. Infinite is a fantastic ending to the series! Enjoy! Love Letter to the Dead is on my list for this month, too, and I'm reading Winner's Curse right now and loving so far!

    1. I've heard that The Winner's Curse is amazing! It looks great.

  5. Oh, I ADORED Sarah, Plain and Tall when I was in elementary school. It's one of my favorites... And now I'm sad I don't own it anymore. Thanks for the reminder and happy reading! New GFC follower My STS

    1. It looks like a great story. Can't wait to read it eventually.

      Thanks for following!

  6. Infinite! I'm still waiting on my library to get it in! So slow! :P

    Here's Mine @ Pinkindle

    1. Waiting on library books is painful. I had to wait almost a month from the time I reserved it until I could pick it up. Hope you get it soon!


I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
