  9. Prophecy looks really good! I saw Carnival of Souls on Kindle was only $1.99 this week... but I kept hearing mixed reviews, so I wasn't sure. The cover is so beautiful though... I'm really thinking I should get it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your books this week! :)

  12. Awesome haul! I've always wanted to read Prophecy since I heard there was a kickass heroine in it & I wasn't sure if I wanted to read Altered, but looking at your picture now, I just changed my mind. I just have to have that cover in my hands. Happy reading! (:

  20. Awesome books. I'm jealous, I really want Carnival of Souls, grabbed it on Audio, but it's not the same. Hopeless seems to be a theme this week, everybody seems to have grabbed it. I can't wait to read it myself. I've seen Altered around too and heard great things, it's on my wishlist too. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by.

  26. OKAY!! I twill not comment on any book except The Carnival of Souls because we all know the other books are awesome and I have a funny story about The Carnival of Souls! (I love ranodmly telling people about my personal life)

    So, I saw it at my library, and I was going to get it, but I remembered that Melissa Marr confuses me, so then I didn't get it.

    But she DOESN'T really confuse me. Only slightly. And that's on the rarest occasions. Then again, I'm a REALLY stupid person, so I get confused easily. That may be it. Yeah....

    But enjoy your books!

    That wasn't really a funny story.

    I use the word "but" a lot.

    And the enter key.

    And the word "and."

    Basically any transition word that isn't above my intellectual level.

    1. OH EILEEN :D

      I understand about Melissa Marr and confusion. I read Ink Exchange a reallyyy long time ago. Or it could have been Wicked Lovely. Either way, I was lost, and weirded out, and I didn't really like it. I haven't tried a Melissa Marr book since, and that's probably the reason why I've checked Carnival of Souls out of my public library for the past three months, and have yet to read. I will now though! I have to, since I own it now lol.

      And I love your use of "but". And the enter key. And "and". NEVER CHANGE :)
