  1. Ohhhh, I've read PP&Zombies, but not the other books. I hope you enjoy them! You got a lot of stuff this week!

  2. Great haul this week. I haven't read any of the Pride and Prejudice zombie books, or the other ones they've come out with yet. I've heard differing opinions on those. Enjoy your books!

  3. I have not read any of the Pride and Predgudice and Zombie books yet but I'll look into it :) and very nice review on the Twilight Saga official Guide.

  4. Every review I've read for Shades of Gray has been amazing. And I'm curious about Exposure.

    I had a lot of fun reading those Quirky books. I just need to finish that last one.

  5. Between Shades of Gray sounds awesome - hope you like it! I saw your Twilight guide review on Goodreads. Thanks for the detailed review. I just started paging through my copy and it was nice to get a heads up on what to look for. Enjoy your books!

  6. Wow! Those are nice books you got there! Hope you enjoy them all! :]

    Here's my IMM this week. :]

  7. I want to read Exposure! I can't wait to see what you think of it!

  8. I love the cover to Exposure! BTW: Totally jealous you got The Twi guide... I'm putting it on my b-day list, lol!

  9. I keep looking at the Twilight companion and then putting it back, I've gone off Twilight at the moment, hope you enjoy your books

  10. Super yay for the Twilight Guide! I still need to pick up my copy. I'm dying to read it! I haven't read your review on it yet. I want to read the guide first and then come back and compare notes.

    Between Shades of Gray sounds so good, and so sad. I really want to read it eventually. I think the cover is just so beautiful.

  18. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy P&P&Z. I've read that one but not either of the others. I've been contemplating Between Shades of Gray, myself. I'm wondering if I'm going to need a box of tissues when I finally read it. Have a great week!

  19. Great books this week. I've been thinking about gettind Between Shades of Gray - looking forward to hearing what you think of it.
    Happy reading.

  20. I have Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I haven't read it yet. I need to read the original first, lol.

  21. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is funny :) Of course, the original is better. Jane Austen is just amazing, but this one has a cute twist! Great IMM! :)

  22. I sooo want the official illustrated guide for twilight. I've been anticipating it for weeks! Those Pride and Prejudice and Zombies books actually look kind of creepy, but I'm sort of into that! LOL!

    Here's mine. :)

  23. Hi new follower! I need to pick up Shades of Gray as well. Haven't gotten into the Zombie books yet, but I have flipped through P&P one and the pics amused me.

  24. I started reading PP&Z when it first came out and I have yet to finish it. Hopefully you do better than I did!
    Great books this week. Happy reading!

  25. Oh wow! I saw Pride ad Prejudice and zombies at the bookstore but I didn't know there were others! :)
    ~Happy Reading!~

  26. Looks like you had a great week!

  27. i'm interested to hear what you think of the p&p books!!

  28. Read PP&Z, but neither of the sequels. I hope those are fun reads! And the Fleet Foxes cd sounds awesome. Have a great week!

  29. Great week for you!
    Happy reading ^^

  30. Looks like you got a lot this week, Alison! :) And all of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies books, too. I can't wait to read your reviews of those books especially. Thank you for visiting, and happy reading this week! :)

  31. I have seen some very positive reviews on Between Shades of Gray.
    I hope you also enjoy it =)
    Happy reading

  32. The cover of Shades of Gray is appealing in its soft gray tones and muted colours. More takeoffs of Jane Austen books, I see. These are rather popular. Hope you enjoy all your amazing reads!

  33. I loved Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, hope you'll enjoy it too! AWESOME stack! Looking forward to your reviews! :)

  34. I remember reading Mr. Darcy, Vampire and I was so bored with it! I never wanted to get into those other strange spin offs of Austin's. I hope you enjoy it though! :)

    Great haul!


  35. Please let me know what you think of the new Stephanie Meyers book. For some odd reason I am just not interested in the pride and prejudice zombie thing. I do have Expose and Shades of Gray on my TBR list.

  36. I really wanted to get The Twilight Saga but decided to wait instead. Let me know how it is.

  37. I've heard so much about BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY! I love the cover, love the idea, and the author seems fantastic - I'll definitely have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by my blog. =)
