Hey guys, hope you've had a fab week. It's just me (Donna) this week as Jess is on holiday still. I've read a ton this week too because I've been off sick from work for a review days, but I'm all better now.

Awesome book haul Donna. Glad you loved Unravel Me so much. I haven't read this series yet but it sounds like one I need to get to.  And Ruffles sounds awesome :)

By the way, the last few times I've come to your page I haven't had access to your GFC widget. I think I'm  a follower but I'm not definite. Not sure if this is a problem from my end or yours but just thought I'd let you know :)

Great haul, I can't wait to read Stealing Parker, and I still have to read shatter Me >_<
I have read Now Is Good, but before the name was was very emotional and I am glad I read it at home.

Check out my haul

Brodie said...


I STILL need to get my hands on Catching Jordan, but I'm soo eager to start Miranda's books, I hear crazy amounts of gushiness for them. And The Rise of Nine!! I was a bit iffy with I Am Number Four, but Power of Six totally sold me and I can't wait to learn more about Nine. 

And those shirts are SO awesome!

Happy reading and I'm glad to hear you're feeling better now! <3

Awesome haul this week! I have already added it to my TBR

Thanks for sharing,

So glad to hear you loved Unravel Me (so excited to read that one) and Stealing Parker. Jasprit and I will be doing a read-along this week on that one so I'm glad you liked it.  The Storyteller! Oh my goodness, prepare for some heartbreak.  I read it after Sam's amazing review and it destroyed me.  In the best way possible of course. Can't wait to see what you think. I'm curious about Now is Good by Jenny Downham. I read her You Against Me and really enjoyed it.  Great haul this week.

Thanks for the awesome giveaway Donna! I can't decide between the Laters Baby or Beautiful Disaster.  Loved both! :)

Crina Magher said...

all books look great!!!
thanks for the giveaway...

My keeper shelf said...

Stealing Parker looks good, I'm really tempted to buy a Laters Baby T-shirt now!

Diana Giote said...
