    I really want to read Wrecked! Velveteen sounds really good, too, and is one of my recommendations from GoodReads. :)

    What a lovely book haul! I have Throne of Glass and Velveteen as eGalleys and I'm excited to give them a read. I hope you enjoy them, too! :-)

    I loved reading your #DireDay post! It made me laugh. I'm going to check out your review of Hourglass now, since I finally bought it this past week.

    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, Hafsah! <3

    I can't tell you how jealous I am about all of those copies of Bad Beginning! Lemony Snicket is the best. (:
