    Wow lots of awesome books :).
    I've heard so much amazing things about Shatter Me I really need to buy a copy!
    I read Starcrossed earlier this year but I was a little disappointed :/. I heard good things about the second book Dreamless so maybe I'll keep reading the series.
    Happy reading !

    Thirteen reasons why is one of my favorite books! I also loved Divergent. Starcrossed is ok, while I'm reading Shatter Me but I'm not too satisfied.

    You have a lot of great books. I tried to read Starcrossed once, but I couldn't get into it. I hope you like it better than I did.

    What is it about hardcovers that makes a book look so irresistible? I'm particularly curious about Bordertown. Great haul this week!
