  4. Thanks Hafsah :) I think I'm going crazy, I just can't stop. My whole family buy me books, so that doesn't help.. :D

    Sarah - Paranormalcy is so good, you're right to have it on your wishlist!

    Thanks for visiting, Mia, Hafsah, Sarah and Michelle!

  5. I really want to read Mockingjay and Firelight. I've heard so much about them but have not managed to get a copy yet. I hope you enjoy them!

  6. Misty - Mockingjay is *so* good, lots of action. Although I'm not sure if I liked the ending hence me hesitating on writing a review. I'm hoping I'll like Firelight, though, despite some reviews saying it's bad. :)

    Thanks for visiting! :)

  7. I haven't heard of any of those adult books! I feel like I live in a bubble!

    I have read Paranormalcy but thought it was ok. I had Mockingjay on preorder and it's been sitting here since it shipped. I haven't been able to muster the oomph to read it!

  8. Peep, don't worry, I must live in the same bubble as you because I hadn't heard of any of them either! Apart from Postmortem, of course. My mum likes to look around bookshops for murder mysteries for me.. I'm starting to worry she thinks I'm some sort of psychopath! After she's looked, she buys them, or recommends them to me. They can honestly be the most random books, haha.

  9. You got some awesome books this week! I've heard great things about Paranormalcy. Hope you enjoy it!

    Here's mine this week!

  10. OH MY GOD I LOVE YOUR ACCENT! Seriously, my god, I loved listening to you talk. XD Don't take that in a creepy way. We Americans AREN'T CREEPY! No matter what you see in the movies! XD

    So. Now that that's out, let me continue onto more relevant topics...

    You got some awesome books! I've had The Maze Runner on hold at my library for a while now (a lot of branches are being shut down, so inter-library transfers are super slow). I read Paranormalcy and wasn't too psyched with it. Kinda disappointed actually. I'm interested to know what you think of it. :) And WOW! I totally agree with you on Mockingjay. That was such a flipping awesome series.

    So, now that I've proven myself to be a thoroughly crazy American, I will say adieu.

    Happy reading! :)

  12. You got some seriously awesome stuff this week! I loved Mockingjay. Karin Slaughter's Grant County series is amazing. And I'm really looking forward to The Maze Runner and The Dead Tossed Waves. I can't wait to hear what you think of everything. Happy reading!

  13. Amelia - OMG thank you!! Haha. I have never been told that that people love my accent before XD Are you serious? I actually don't like it. I prefer American and Aussie accents :) I have more videos on my YT channel if you wanna listen some more ;) Haha. And no, I don't think it was creepy at all :)

    The Hunger Games was amazing. There are no other words to describe it! The Maze Runner is great, but it doesn't match up to THG :)

    Jessica and Krystal, thank you so much for stopping by XD

    Kelly - I thought Karin Slaughters books were a series! I hadn't done much research on them. I'll need to buy the first ones :D The Maze Runner is BRILLIANT. I definitely recommend it :D
