    Hee hee! Nice! Was debating about reading Shine myself. The series hasn’t really been a big fave of mine, but it has been pretty interesting!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  24. I must be the only person in the world who did not get Insurgent this week, lol! but I haven’t read Divergent yet… sooo, ummm… I’ll go back to living under my rock right now 😉 
    The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy sounds like such a great MG read! I’m going to definitely add that to my list, I know that my kiddo would enjoy it too! 
    Well, at least I got Bitterblue too! Do I redeem myself with that one? lol and When You Were Mine should arrive on my doorstep on Monday, woo hoo!!!

  25. Awesome week, Lori! I just finished Insurgent – it’s so exciting. Temptation and The Sinister Sweetness look really intriguing. And I was so excited to get My Life Next Door too. I can’t get enough contemporary lately.

    Looking forward to your reviews of Bitterblue, Shine and First Comes Love.
    Happy reading!

  26. I LOVED First Comes Love! LOVED IT. I’ve read mixed reviews but I just ate it up. Particularly the boy! Before I read that book, I didn’t like the kissy covers but since that one I’ve kind of liked them. (Didn’t you do a post on kissy covers once? It might have been someone else but it seems like I remember it being here?) Anyway, I’m not sure WHY this book changed my mind, but the kissing on the cover captured the book SO WELL. 

    Anyway, we have a couple of overlaps that I’m dying to get into. Good stuff you have there!

  27. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Bitterblue (I loved Graceling, but Fire was amazing!), and the Sinister Sweetness book intrigues me!

  28. Is the cat part of the delivery? LOL The Bitterblue cover looks amazing

  29. Yeahhhh Bitterblue!  I loved that book!

    Enjoy all your reads! :)

  30. I am really excited about My Life Next Door, so I hope you’ll review it asap! ;D I got a copy of When You Were Mine via GalleyGrab, though I didn’t download it. It seems great, but at the same time I’m not in the mood for it right now. Arrgh. 

    Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy all of your books this week!

  35. When You Were Mine is my baby, my little pocket of sunshine, a total special shelf book. LOVE THAT BOOK. And I’m so very envious of your copy of First Comes Love. I love me some Katie Kacvinsky so I can’t wait to try out her contemporary. HOLLA BACK FOR INSURGENT. Just got a copy myself and DAYUM, I couldn’t be more excited if I tried! Oh, man, AND you got Bitterblue and Shine! I have to read Fire first but so have to hop on Bitterblue the first opportunity I get. I have to read Shift before I read Shine but I’VE HEARD THE STUFF. I’ve heard about those delish Sexy Times and I CAN’T WAIIIIIT. This is quite simply a super fun haul!

  36. Awesome books! I’m totally blaming you for my need for Shine.. I gave in and ordered it last night! I can’t wait to get started on Bitterblue as well. :) Enjoy!
