Also, she announced that she'll be releasing a dystopian trilogy some time in 2013. Is anyone else excited? DYSTOPIA! GREEK MYTHOLOGY! WOO!

And - the biggest news of all - I reached 250 followers! Oh my GOSH, this is amazing. Thank you all so, so much. It really makes my day when you all take the time to comment on my posts. I love you all <3 I'm thinking about doing a Q&A on my Youtube channel to celebrate, so if I do then I'll post a link here and y'all can ask me some questions :) *GROUP HUG*


  1. You've had some great books this week. I like the covers on the first three of the Samuri books - silver with a different coloured moon on each. It's a pity they didn't carry on that theme. :)

  2. I have had Pegasus on my wishlist for ages, cant wait to hear what you think. Happy reading :D

  3. Congrats on all your followers!

    I've been seeing Pegasus around, I'm excited to see what you think of it. The Samuri books seem interesting too, I don't think I've read anything like that.

  4. Awesome books! I've just started reading YA and they are very good! I'm a new follower. I hope you can also follow mine! Thanks and God Bless!

Wasn't really my taste. Hope you enjoy every single one of your new reads!
