My week: Been pretty good. This is how domestic my life is--so excited for the new Target to open up. It is only 5 minutes from my house, and it makes me want to dance. Otherwise, I have been enjoying the warmer weather. I took my girls to the Museum of Life and Science and we had a great time, also had a park playdate several days.

    You certainly read quick! Great haul! :)

  15. What adorable kiddos!! I took mine shopping to Target today, so I totally feel your excitement! It's about 5 minutes from my house. And when they built it there about two years ago, I was definitely doing a happy dance for quite a while!! :D

    On to the books... I totally adored the Shatter Me series. I thought Unravel Me was awesome! And Destroy Me really gave me some insight into Warner and made me like him even more than I already did. I hope you enjoy all of your goodies (and the beautiful weather!) this week!! :)

  20. Thanks for stopping by my STS! Love all of the books in the Shatter Me series, even Destroy Me although I normally don't read novellas. I've seen Farsighted series around but haven't had a chance to get to it yet.

    1. I don't usually do novellas either, but have liked the last two (this and Elixir)

  21. I really want to read Shatter Me and the rest. Hope you like your other titles. Yay for the park and nice weather. Love it. It's been weird weather here, but feels pretty nice today at least.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just read Shatter Me and loved it way more than I thought I would! Although it took about 50 pages for me to really get into the story, I'm glad you liked it. Destroy Me really made me see Warner in a new light, not really sure if I hate him now... But I really need to get my hand on a copy of Unravel Me! :)

    Thank you for sharing and have fun reading

  43. Ahhh Apollyon...my copy can't be here soon enough! I need my Aiden and even though the book will be out in the middle of my midterms I'll read it right away! :) Awesome haul :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh, these kidzzzzzz *melts* =) I want to read Apollyon so bad already. I have Elixir, but I haven't read it yet. It's funny, because my Mother, who is all about crime, mystery and romance and doesn't enjoy fantasy that much, liked the Covenant series quite a bit and I borrowed her my copy of Elixir and she said it was great. I'm glad you liked it, too:) I have yet to read Tahere's books. I want them all before I start them so maybe I'll wait before they're all out. It's gonna be hard though. I love you haul, Brandi!

    1. Smart move waiting for Shatter me, until the 3rd is out. Just make sure to read Destroy Me before Unravel me.
