    Old Follower :)

  2. I feel you with Cinder. I marked it as DNF, too. I tried like three different times to read and listen to it, and just couldn't get into it. I'll look forward to your thoughts! Linked looks great! Enjoy, your week!!

  3. Absolutely loved Cinder and The Indigo Spell. Hope you do too. ^^

  4. Wow-you didn't like Cinder? I didn't love it as much as everyone else but I still enjoyed reading it. I'm very interested to see your reasons.

  5. Death, Doom and Detention - that's quite a title! :D I'll have to check out your post. :D

    I've heard so many different things about Cinder; at first I wanted to read it but now I think I'll pass.

    My post will be up tomorrow.

  6. I'm reading Indigo Spell either this week or next. I'm so sad that Cinder ended up as an DNF for you. BTW, you have a shout-out in my STS.

  9. What a fantastic books did you got this week.
    I hope you enjoy reading al of them.

    My STS

  10. Hmmm... I'm interested in seeing why you didn't finish Cinder. I really enjoyed it and Scarlet so I am curious. Linked looks really interesting. I am eager to get that one in my hands. I hope you enjoy.

    Happy Reading!

  14. Oh The Indigo Spell was so good! I can't wait the next book in the series! I see you also love it..great :) I've got Wither on my shelf but I still haven't read it..everyone seem to love it. I hope that Sever will be great too :) Great haul :)

  34. I'm glad you got Cinder from the library - especially if it was a DNF. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy's a favorite of mine. I get that it's a hit or miss though. I look forward to your Volition post - I am part of the Perception tour and am posting a review for it on Thursday. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

    Here's Mine @ Pinkindle Reads & Reviews

  41. Lol, I was going to saying something about your DNF on Cinder but it seems everyone else did already. I'll be interested in seeing why you couldn't get into it though, I haven't seen very many people who didn't finish it so I'm super curious.

    I hope you enjoy your week!
