Found new favorites and reexamined old favorites (and not so favorites)
These things might not seem like a lot for you, but it means the world to me.
Plus, I think I’ve finally gotten a handle on this whole blogging thing (she says while crossing her fingers and praying nothing goes wrong in the near future). There hasn’t been a month that I’ve not uploaded, I’ve done tags, I’ve done memes, I’ve done reviews…what’s next?
I look forward to another year on here.
I also want to say thank you to those of you who continue to come back, post after post (and even the ones who drop in every once in a while).
I’m a highly indecisive creature, whose reading tastes vary at a whim and so there are quite a few books with topics that I typically like…but somehow haven’t had the desire to pick up yet. These are those books. Books that sound interesting but feel like they are missing that ONE thing that makes me instantly crave it.
I saw a few blogger friends doing this one (okay, more than a few) and since I suffer from the world’s worst case of FOMO, here we are.

This one is going to be pretty obvious if you saw Monday’s post…but these lines come from:
Please tell me you’ve read it. And if you haven’t, tell me that these lines are at least a tad bit intriguing?
I don’t know if you know this about me (if you’ve been on my blog any time before this you’d know) but I absolutely loved Carry On. I even said that I wished there was a sequel. And then…THIS happened?! OMG!!!
I need this in my hands right now…but I hope that tagline doesn’t mean that SnoBaz is over.
I was satisfied with the ending. I had convinced myself that Kaz and Inej would eventually find their way back to each other and live happily ever after. I had told myself that King of Scars would be enough for me. And then Leigh answered my innermost desires. Gah!
Are you looking forward to these two new books? Any of your faves announce a continuation to a story you really wanted more of? Let me know.
