Ooo, I'm glad that you did, Jade! That's encouraging! An I'll be reading and reviewing Altered this coming week :)Delete
I'll make sure I keep an eye out for that review then see if it's worth buying it next week :)Delete
Awesome haul. Prophecy was very good indeed. Great haul of books. Thanks for visiting me earlier.ReplyDelete

WOAH @_@ Altered looks so good & i still have to get my own copy of it! I have prophecy too. I LOVED Carnival of Souls, and hope u do too!ReplyDelete
-Great haul & thanks for stopping by my blog, Alyssa!! =D
Lisseth @ Read-A-holicZ =D
Yes, run and get Altered NOW! :DDelete
That is encouraging, about Carnival of Souls! I've been on the fence with that one, but now that I have it, I'll read it. Thanks, Lisseth! <3
Prophecy sounds really good! I love fantasies and I sure hope it doesn't disappoint. I haven't heard many reviews about it yet!ReplyDelete
Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian
I agree, Krystianna! I can't wait to start it :)Delete
I already read Prophecy! Hope you enjoy that one!!!ReplyDelete
-Ariella @ Secrets of Lost Words
Thank you, Ariella! I hope so too! :)Delete
I've been dying to read Carnival of Souls! The other books look awesome too. I can't wait to see what you think of them!ReplyDelete
Amber @ Fall Into Books
Same here, Amber! And thanks!!! :)Delete
Prophecy looks great and I'm really curious about Altered. :DReplyDelete
I finished Altered this morning. IT IS SOOOO GOOD!!! Review to come :)Delete
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! :)ReplyDelete
I haven't read Carnival of Souls yet, so I guess I can't really encourage to go onne way or the other. But $1.99 is really cheap! And thanks, Lisa! <3Delete
I haven't read any of these, but I have heard great things about Little Bee! Hope you enjoy them!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shoshanah! :DDelete
Havent heard of any of these yet, but Prophecy and Altered seems great! :) Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Stacking the Shelves @ Divergent Gryffindor
Altered was amazing! I read it thi morning. And thanks! :)Delete
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! (:ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my STS! :D
Altered is SO GOOD!!! I read it this morning, and absolutely love it. Part of the reaso why I bought it was for the cover, as you said, but I loved it so much. Trust me, you want this book! And thanks! <3Delete
I'd love to get my hands on Prophecy, sound so good. Happy reading :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Katja! :)Delete
Eeeep Altered!!! I'm dying to read that one! :D Also, I *JUST* finished Hopeless and it was AMAZING! You're going to love it!!ReplyDelete
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!
YAYYY, I'm so happy to hear about Hopeless! I have faith in Colleen Hoover, nd I'm glad you liked it. And, to reciprocate, Altered is FABULOUS! I read it this morning, and loved it. I *highly* recommend it!!!Delete
Nice Haul! I'm cheering for YA2U to visit Baltimore also. *Fingers crossed* Thanks for visiting my STS. I'm following back. Happy Reading.ReplyDelete
WOOT A FELLOW MARYLANDER!!!! I'm actually from Reisterstown, but that small town would never win, so I'm sticking with Baltimore! Happy reading to you as well! :)Delete
Oooh! You got Altered! Since I've been seeing it around lately, I've kind of developed a mini obsession of that one, lol.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for stopping by my StS(and I've followed you back) :D
I hope you enjoy everything!
Thanks, thanks, and definitely thanks for following me! I have successfully read Altered today, and I loved it! Review up tomorrow! I *know* you'll enjoy it, Lauren :)Delete
Good stuff up there. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Val! <3Delete
Oh some great books Alyssa I love the cover of Little Bee, and I've been seeing Hopeless everywhere! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy all your books! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you very much, Jasprit! :)Delete
I've heard a lot about Altered, hope you enjoy.ReplyDelete
Brandi from Blkosiner’s Book Blog
I did! Thanks, Brandi! :DDelete
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.ReplyDelete

I'm sure you'll love Carnival of Souls, despite the format. I hope I do! And the same goes for Hopeless. I did read Altered (this morning), and loved it. Thanks for everything, Katie <3Delete
oooh, bookish surprises from friends! VERY COOL.ReplyDelete
RIGHT!!! I love surprises :)Delete
Nice haul! I'm listening to the audibook of "Carnival of Souls" now and it's really good.ReplyDelete
WOOT! That's great to hear. Thanks for stopping by!Delete
Great books!! I have A Millions Suns ready to read soon hehehe Happy reading!ReplyDelete
That's AWESOME! A Million Suns is one of my favorite books. And, the third book is coming out next week! Happy reading to you as well, Gaby! :)Delete
Hi Alyssa! WOW nice list of books! Altered is definitly on my TBR pile! You are so lucky to have it, I saw it on a few blog since it's release, I'm looking forward to read your review :PReplyDelete
Thanks, Properine! I read Altered and *loved* it. Review will go live on the blog tomorrow! I have a feeling you will enjoy Altered if you get a chance to read it :DDelete
Lovely Book Haul. I want Altered.ReplyDelete
My Book Haul
Haha, trust me: yes you do! I loved it! I'm sure you will too :)Delete
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)ReplyDelete
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.
OH EILEEN :DDelete
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 :)
Great haul! I really want to read Prophecy and Altered, they look amazing :) Hope you enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by my blog!ReplyDelete
Altered was absolutely DIVINE, Kim! And thanks! Happy reading to you! :DDelete
Altered is fantastical! You will LOVE it!ReplyDelete
I DO!!! I already know it's going to one of my favorites of 2013. Thanks, Hannah! :)Delete
Nice haul! I've seen Prophecy around on some blogs lately, and I've added it to my TBR list! I hope you love all these books! Thanks so much for stopping by my StS, and for following my blog! I'm now following you as well! :DReplyDelete
Thank you for everything, Andrea! Happy reading :DDelete
Wow, this is such a great haul, Alyssa! <3 I'm seeing very positive reviews for Altered, and it's really intriguing. Haven't read Carnival of Souls myself but it sounds awesome as well. Happy reading this week, and thanks for dropping by!ReplyDelete
