Ooh, I think I want to get Cinderella Ate My Daughter for a friend of mine. She's having a baby girl soon and she's mentioned that all the gifts she's been getting are of the pink and sparkly variety, which she likes, but is being overloaded by. I think she'll get a kick out of that book.ReplyDelete

Awesome books and happy reading!

Nice big mailbox! Congrats on all your gifts and wins. Death Comes to Pemberley is THE hot book in my library right now. Everyone is loving it. I hope you do too! Crave looks interesting.ReplyDelete
Great books this week. :) I got Page to Screen a while back but I never got to do more than skim it. I really enjoyed Love Story as well so I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
The Demon Trapper's Daughter and Love Story are both very good books, the first more so than the second one. I can't wait to see how you like them.ReplyDelete
All of these books sound great! I got an ARC of Soul Thief but I haven't read it because I haven't read A Demon Trapper's Daughter. I really need to get on that. I've never heard of the manga series that you featured, but I'll have to check it out!ReplyDelete
Ooh, fabulous bunch!ReplyDelete
I have some other stuff I was going to send you also. I've been busy with other stuff, but I will get to it.ReplyDelete
WOW!!! What a great bunch of books! I really want to read The Demon Trappers Daughter. I hope you enjoy all your reads:)ReplyDelete

HP Page to Screen!! I borrowed a copy from my library, but didn't end up finishing it before I returned. Definitely one I want to buy to keep, though. I loved Matched. Sadly Crossed didn't quite live up to expectations for me, but I'm excited for the third book. And I really want to read Love Story! I've heard great things about Jennifer's novels.ReplyDelete
Awesome mailbox, enjoy!
Oh, Dengeki Daisy! Good choice! :))ReplyDelete

Megan @ Between the Lines
Can you BELIEVE that I didn't get ANY books myself for Christmas? :( ... My daughters say that they won't buy me more books until the ones I have to read actually fit on the new bookshelf they bought me for my birthday last year ... little wankers!ReplyDelete
YOU, however, got a great stash! Woot! Matched and Crossed .. I ALMOST got those for Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn's book box, but ended up getting her the Fallen series instead :)
Enjoy all of the lovely new reads!
Lots of great books! I really enjoyed Matched, and I hope to read Crossed soon. I really want the Harry Potter book. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I got Matched for my sister for Christmas. I can't wait til she reads it...then I can start!ReplyDelete
The Cinderella book sounds fun.
I want to read Demon Trapper's Daughter so bad!! The manga looks pretty awesome too, I haven't heard of that one. Thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
Jessi @ Auntie Spinelli Reads

Happy reading!! :D
Great books! I still need to pick up my BD Illustrated Guide. Have fun reading! Thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
Cinderella eat my daughter! I wonder why...LOL!ReplyDelete
Eeeep! I completely forgot about Crave. I read it a couple of years back and I think there was supposed to be a sequel. I'll have to look up what it is.ReplyDelete
Great mailbox this week. I love the Harry Potter Page to screen book.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my IMM :D
Oooh Matched & Crossed! That's awesome! Happy Reading! <3ReplyDelete
Awesome books! I haven't read Matched and Crossed yet. I have Love Story and Demon, but haven't read it yet.ReplyDelete
Breaking Dawn and Harry Potter, Yeah!
Thanks for stopping by :)
Cinderella Ate My Daughter looks so fun! You got some awesome reads. I've only read one Jennifer Echols book, but it was great. I bet Love Story will be full of some good romance.ReplyDelete
-Jenna @ Fans of Fiction
I've been wanting to read Cinderella Ate My Daughter for a while now, though I figured I could put it off maybe until I actually have a daughter. I loved both Matched and Crossed, and would be willing to maim someone to get to look through the HP filming book at some point.ReplyDelete
I haven't read the Demon Trapper's Daughter yet, but everyone seems to have great things to say about it. Harry Potter, from page to screen, I bet that is a very interesting book! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my IMM!!ReplyDelete
Dude! Me love the Demon Trappers series! It totally rocks!!ReplyDelete
Lots of great books!ReplyDelete
