Book Related News:
- Crossed (Matched #2) by Ally Condie cover reveal!
- Andrea Cremer, author of Nightshade, announced that there is going to be new covers for Nightshade and Wolfsbane. So the covers that are just MADE of pretty are going to be discontinued and/or not printed at all. *sad face* There is a twitition going around that protests to keep the pretty green Wolfsbane cover for hardback, if you wish to sign it.

Other News:
- 100 sled dogs were culled in Canada, just because tourism has decreased.


  1. Great books this week. I've really got to get back to the VA books I've only read the first two.
    Haven is waiting for me on my tbr pile - looks good.
    Happy reading.

  2. You've had some really amazing books this week Amber, and as always I really enjoyed watching your vlog.

    I'm afraid I'm one of those who hasn't started the Vampire Academy books yet. I do have the first two, but I want to collect the whole series before I start it AND I want those beautiful red covers!

    Hope you enjoy Divergent. It sounds totally awesome. I have pre-ordered it for my Kindle. Can't wait to start it myself.

  3. Ooh jealous of Divergent! It looks really good.

  4. Fab reads. Love all the Vampire Academy books!

    Happy Sunday!

  6. I love The Vampire Academy series (it is my favorite series actually) : I cried a lot too while reading it !!
    Happy reading !!

  9. Frostbite looks promising! Hope it's good. :]

  10. Wow, great books this week! I'm really looking forward to reading the last book in the Vampire Academy series. Hope you enjoy Divergent. :)

  11. I still have not read the VA Series. I need to though! Haven looks amazing. Happy Reading!

  12. Nice, both our blogs are full of Vampire Academy awesomeness! =)

    'Divergent' looks so good. Everyone seems to like it, and I have to say I'm quite jealous, haha.

  13. Oh man! I want to read Haven so badly. I think I'm going to go check out your review next. I also am very drawn to Divergent rave reviews have been posted on that book.


  14. Girl I loved VA series by Richelle Mead. My favorite one was Blood Promise and wait till you get to the last book Last Sacrifice. I heard about her Succubus series so that may be my next thing. I like your covers far more than the North American one.

    Happy Reading :)

  15. Wow, lots of great books. I haven't read anything my Richelle Mead yet. I think i'm the only one.... I will have to fix this. Enjoy all your new reads.

  16. I have heard nothing but good things about Divergent. I can't wait to read it. 1 person I know even said she liked it better than Hunger Games.
    Girl in the Arena is on my wishlist, too, though I've heard mixed reviews of that one.

  17. Love Vampire Academy! It's one of my favorites series. I'm SO excited to read Divergent!

    Hope you enjoy! :)

  18. I keep meaning to pick up Girl in the Arena.. must do that.

  19. Ooh, great books! I so wish I had Divergent (it sounds like it's made of awesome).

    Happy reading. ^_^

    The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia

  20. Amazing haul this week. Haven and Divergent are on my list, they both sound awesome. Hearts at Stake is pretty darn good too. I just started the second book in the series. Enjoy all of your fabulous goodies.

    Happy Reading!

  21. Great books! I'm just about to start Vampire Academy but wasn't sure about it till now :)

  22. Thanks for stopping by my blog!!! Great Haul!! Divergent, heard nothing but great things about that book. Have a great weekend!!!

  23. Is it bad that I am more envious of your awesome poster then anyone's mailbox books this week?

    Great books!!

  24. I love those Vampire Academy covers so so much more than the ones we have. And I am so nervous to start Spirit Bound because I don't know how much more I can take! You are totally right in calling the series an emotional roller coaster.
    Can't wait to see what you think about Divergent though. That one sounds good.
    And you'll have to let us know if the speech dashes in Girl In The Arena are really bothersome.
    Happy Reading!

  25. I am so looking forward to your review of Girl in the Arena. I've heard mixed things, but it seems so good. I also love the cover.

    Oh no! I had seen the new Nightshade/Wolfsbane covers but I didn't realize they weren't going to print the pretty Wolfsbane cover! I like the new ones ok, but the old ones were truly beautiful and eye-catching. What a shame.

  26. Thanks for the visit!

    I love the way you do your IMM! And Divergent looks so good! Happy reading!!

    New follower! :3

  27. Love the Vampire Academy series. Have fun reading it!

  28. Awesome books! You know I love VA. And I've been wanting to read Haven.

  29. Girl in the Arena was an amazing read; really different. Enjoy all of your books from this week.
    Happy reading!

  30. OK, now I have to get the VA series, you made them sound amazing. Not sure about the girl in the arena, will look forward to your review. Happy reading!


  31. Love the Vampire Academy series. Happy reading :)

  32. Thank you for leaving a comment on my IMM yesterday :)

    I almost feel ashamed to say that I haven't yet read or bought a single books by Richelle Mead..*goes and hides under the cover*...
    Well, maybe in the future..

    Happy Reading
