Hey there, everyone!

You've probably noticed that I haven't been very active lately in the blogging commuity. The reason? School. Right now it's test week (although I'm never sure if that's the correct English term for it... They're not exams, but still important. For a week I have tests? quizzes? on all my subjects, and it's pretty tiring. I'm literally learning all day. Sigh.). All my energy gets sucked into that, so I'm not very good at commenting back right now! I'll try to catch up for a bit tomorrow. Anyway, I do want to thank everyone. Thanks for still visiting even when I'm being anti-social <3 It means a lot to me! My test week isn't over until next Thursday, so... facing a busy week!

And then my second announcement: soon I'll be doing my very first chapter-by-chapter review on the blog! The book I'll be reviewing is Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. I'll post whenever I can with all the things I have to do, but I do think you can expect a review of the first two chapters tomorrow!

Other blog-related things you may have missed:

I was auto-approved for HarperCollins on Edelweiss! You guys, I couldn't believe it when I saw it at first. I'm not kidding, I seriously thought Harper just had a lot of "Read Now" books on Edelweiss. I had to ask Melanie (YA Midnight Reads) if Into the Still Blue was up for request or download...

Naturally, when I found out that I was auto-approved, I freaked out. Did a little dance. And then I dowloaded ALL the books... Oops. Some books I got:

  • Uninvited 
  • The Promise of Amazing 
  • No One Else Can Have You
  • Dear Killer
  • Into The Still Blue
  • Cruel Beauty
  • Faking Normal
And yeah... I got a LOT more...

Currently reading:

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature. Steeped in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's trademark mix of gripping action and breathless romance, this suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michelle Hodkin, and Lisa McMann.
I'm really surprised! I hated Jordan's Firelight series, but Uninvited is nothing like it at all. So far it's really good and interesting and I can't wait to see where the story's going!

I'm trying to read all the ARCs I got as soon as I can, so that I can submit my feedback, but that also means I'm reviewing for February 2014 (mostly) and I have no back-up reviews (yet). So I'm going to have to do a bit of juggling with reviews and posts, but I'll manage :P Maybe I'll make next month Discussion December or something!

Also a question: how do you convert a PDF file, dowloaded from Edelweiss, into an EPUB? Harlequin approved me for a couple of books (Pawn, The Iron Traitor, Heartbeat) but they're in PDF format, so my e-reader is being REALLY annoying.

Help me put together my Christmas wishlist! I already got a couple of recommendations, but I'm not sure what to ask for so far. Books that are on the list for certain:

  • These Broken Stars
  • Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)
  • Premeditated
Any books I absolutely need to put on here? Let me know!

Thank you all for reading, and have a nice weekend!


  1. HAHA, I was so confuzzled when I got auto approved, I was freaking out >.<
    Have you read any books by Kendare Blake? Pushing the Limits? In The Shadow of Blackbirds? Those are some ideas...

    Hope you do well in youe exams! <33

    1. I know, right?! I honestly couldn't believe it since I'd only ever requested and reviewed one Edelweiss-galley from Harper O.o

      Yep, I read Antigoddess and I actually own the Anna series! Ooh, Pushing The Limits is a good one! Haven't read that series yet.

      Thanks for all your recs and thanks!!
