  1. Aw thanks for linking up my new blog and Valentine's post, Alexa! Also, you have so many amazing books to read! I really hope you enjoy THE DUFF! I'm jealous you're going to get to see the movie soon. From your haul, I just added Playing With Matches to my to-read. It sounds like a cute book. :D PS: You look totally lovely on your haul video!

  2. I'm very surprised you haven't read either THE DUFF or THE ARCHIVED! They are both great books. My feelings on STATION ELEVEN and I WAS HERE were mixed. I hope you and Macky have a great Valentine's Day and that you love your new Kindle!

  3. OMG so many books! How do you have the time?? I know we all ask ourselves the same question... never enough time and too many books!

  4. Thank you so much for the mention Alexa. Also, you always have wonderful book hauls. I personally haven't gone to the library in a long time though since I buy all my books.

    Woah all 54 Animorphs books, that is amazing. I used to love the TV show.

    I'm really keen for I'll Meet You There, I've heard you and so many other people gushing about it! I bought Something Real because of you haha. Can't wait to get into it.

    Keep up this awesome feature Alexa, I love discovering new blogs/catching up on other people's features.

    Happy reading!

  5. Book Rec: The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy. I think you will like this one. I read it a few years ago and it STILL haunts my thoughts.

    Thanks for sharing all those posts! Great round up. There's still a few I need to check out. :) I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day, Alexa, and you enjoy ALL of your new books. I'm really looking forward to Every Last Word myself - it sounds fantastic. :) Happy reading!

  7. I love the Gallagher Girls series! They read a little bit young but they're SO FUN and I've reread Cross My Heart & Hope to Spy sooooooo many times. It's such a comfort book for me. Oh! Really good girl group friendship plus SPYING plus hot teacher plus awesome mom so yeah (-; I really need The DUFF too. The movie is already here and I haven't gotten to it yet *hides*. I plan to read Every Breath this month since the last one comes out next month in Australia so its time. BROOKE DAVIS! One Tree Hill! Fiction is clashing with reality! WRITTEN IN RED WEEEE! It's actually straight up, reimagined world fantasy so its perfect for your flight of fantasy challenge and there is a slooooooooooooooooo*insert a million more Os here*w burn romance. Just a hint during this book. The Girl at Midnight arc cover *beating heart eyes* sooo pretty! YAAAY NEW KINDLE! Mine got passed around too before I got it back again. It's a touch and I'm dying for one with a backlight because most of my reading is done past midnight :P btw, Life in Outer Space is SO nerdtastically epic! Such a delightful read and this is one HECK of a haul. You're doing it right, Alexa (-;


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
