  1. Brilliant books this week, My other Half loves the Mass Effect books

    1. I think so too! And I'm so glad to hear that your other half loves the ME books, I haven't [aside from random reviews I've skimmed on Goodreads and/or Amazon] gotten much feedback on them. :]

  2. I am curious as to what you will think of Abraham Lincoln and The Raven Boys. I love Maggie Stiefvater Mercy Wolf series and I hope Raven Boys is just as good.

    1. I'm kind of curious too. I haven't paid much attention to the press, be it good or bad, that AL has gotten so I'll be going into that one bias-free for a change. As for The Raven Boys, I have pretty high hopes for it because I too loved the Mercy Wolf series. :]

  3. Wow -- I want to go to your favourite used bookstore; what a great book haul! I've read Storm Front, and liked it ... my book club picked it earlier this year. Glass Castle is incredible; I listened to it on audio and loved it. Hope you enjoy all your new books!

    1. Well, its in Southern California so depending on your own location it could definitely happen. It's a pretty awesome little store and not very well known at all.

      So glad to hear something about Glass Castle! I literally knew nothing of it, besides a friend is required to read it for class, when I picked it up.

      Thank you! :]

  4. I love the Maximum Ride Series! I just got the very last book and I really need to read it. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week.

    My IMM

    1. I liked the first one quite a bit so I'm sure the next few will be good. I had no idea how many books were in that series when I started it. Crazy!

  5. Maximum Ride is one of my "need to catch up on"series. Now we both must go try to shelf our books...sigh ;P

    1. I managed to shelf mine! Just barely. And, you know, some of them aren't actually on shelves but in crates...and, you know, some of those crates have books stacked so high that they are over the sides...and there are three of them. And...I may have too many books. LMAO.

      As for MR, I read the first one. LOL. I thought I had got the rest of the series when I was at the store then logged them in on Goodreads and found out there were MORE. I'm never going to get through the whole thing. xD

  6. Wow! That is one huge haul!!! I really want to read The Raven Boys. I hope you enjoy all your reads:) Thanks for stopping by my STS.

    1. It is! LOL. Next weeks' won't be anywhere near as large but hopefully just as good.

      I'm looking forward to The Raven Boys too, it will be my first Maggie Stiefvater book since the Wolves of Mercy Falls. <3
