  2. Nice IMM. I've been very curious about Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar. I've heard mixed opinions on it. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on it. Hunger was an amazing read. Kessler does a great job at keeping the seriousness and the paranormal balanced. Enjoy all of your great reads.

  3. Alison, I just had to look up what Warm Bodies was about because I'm loving the cover. Sounds good. And I got Switched a couple of weeks back because I too want to know what all the buzz is about. Haven't read it yet, but I plan to soon.

    Looks like you will have fun with these.

  8. Hunger looks awesome! I am such a sucker for a nice cover... You'll have to let us know how Pettigrew is... It was choosen as a book club pick but it didn't appeal to me to read it.

  11. I want to read Switched and Hunger!!! I've read Rage and it was amazing but I had never read the start of the quartet! Great books!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Warm Bodies looks amazing. I have Hunger and tried reading it but it just didn't seem realistic to me and the main character annoyed me. Maybe I'll get on with them the next time I read it...

  50. Hi, Alison. Thanks for stopping by today. I've been wondering about Switched, myself. I'll likely get it for my Nook soon to check it out. I'm looking forward to reading Wither. It will arrive tomorrow and, after that, it's just a matter of finding time between my library books to read it. I hope you have a fantastic week. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow! Lots of comments! LOL.

    You got some great books this week!

    I really liked the Trylle Trilogy. I thought the storyline was unique and it didn't always go in the direction I expected it to. Hopefully you like it too! I loved that it was super affordable too.

    Hunger sounds so good. It's a four part series or something, right? I need to go put it on my 'to read' list on goodreads.

  60. Nice books you got here, girl! :)
    I don't think I heard of any of them before, so I'll be looking forward to your reviews!
    Enjoy your reads!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I actually haven't heard about the Trylle Trilogy until today (not that I remember, at least). I think they was on three peoples' IMMs today! How I haven't heard of them before now, I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  62. YES! You got Vampire Empire! I absolutely freaking loved that book, and that's saying something because I hate vampires! Fabulous mailbox, Alison! :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ooh, Hunger looks great. Can't wait to see what you think!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks for your comment! Little Princes is excellent, I am almost finished. I don't usually read non-fic, but it is so easy to read and funny (although really moving at the same time). Its really well written!

    I have been considering buying Switched too since it is so cheap for the nook-can't wait to hear what you think of it!

    ReplyDelete
  65. hunger looks like a really good book!! Enjoy!

  66. I am looking forward to reading Warm Bodies! My copy should be here soon :)

  67. Great book haul! I loved the Greyfriar! It was such a great book! I also adore Jackie Morse Kessler, her books are awesome. You'll see once you read it how much goodness is packed in a short book.

  68. Amazing batch here! I'm looking forward to reading Vampire Empire and Hunger! Thanks for following! I'll be following as well. <3

  69. I have Switched on my Kindle, but I haven't read it yet, as with most of the books I have on that thing.. I can't wait to see what you think of it! Most of the other books I haven't heard of, but they look interesting. Enjoy all your new books this week! :)

  70. The Greyfiar (Vampire Empire #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith; I need to read this book.

    Happy reading cos you got so many lovely books...

    ReplyDelete
  71. Please (please? :D) post a review of Switched after you read it. I don't actually have an e-reader, but I too want to know why she was offered a 2 million book deal.

    And I've heard really great things about Warm Bodies--I think it was Maggie Stiefvater who wrote on her blog to recomend that one and the synopsis in and of itself also looks terrific.

    Looks like you've got a full plate for this week! Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion sounds like a great book! Hope you enjoy reading the books!
