  1. Ooooh I'm curious what you'll think of A Monster Calls, haha, since I just read it and am the black sheep again x_____x but yeah, hope you like it more than I do. It was WAY less creepy than I expected though. It reads more like a contemporary than anything, just to let you know. That was kind of disappointing to me.

    I can't wait to see your review of Perfect Ruin because that may or may not be the deciding factor on whether or not I buy it. LOL no pressure though :D

    YAY GILLIAN AND CHRISTINA SHENANIGANS NEXT WEEK :D I am excite.

  2. Oh man I want Perfect Ruin SO badly. The cover for Of Metal and Wishes is SO pretty.I'll be waiting to see what you think of that one.

  3. Hahaha, the bee's knees. Why, hi there, Georgia-influenced person. Nice to see I'm not the only one affected. (Okay, so I know this is a regular saying in English, but I like to pretend that all ways lead to Georgia, because. You understand.)

    UTNS and TTEN read very, very quickly! I didn't *love* Roar, but it's a very fun series. I read each in one night. Ha, yes, I started them right before bed and couldn't sleep because they were that addictive. Hahaha, you remember it to the chapter! That is AWESOME. Ooh, I see the pretty UK edition of The Diviners in the background. I have the same! Sometimes I just stroke the cover to inhale-by-touch the pretty. Because that's normal...

    Oh dear, that aspect of your life you'll be filming with the demon baby will be something, all right. Doesn't mean I'm not anticipating it in an almost sick kind of way :D Also, your camera will have the honour of broadcasting Christina's new do, since she didn't vlog this week :( (I'm not one to talk, but still, people have expectations, dammit.)

  5. YES TO UNDER THE NEVER SKY. YES TIMES A MILLION.

    I'm so pleased you're happy with The Dream Thieves. It really is so good, isn't it?!? Also, I know EXACTLY what chapter you're talking about <33333

    OH and I also just bought A Monster Calls. Patrick Ness was signing near me and I so I splurged and bought the hardcover >.<

    And then there's Premeditated. How much do I want to read that? It sounds crazy scary - perfect for October, I suppose. Congrats on getting a finished copy!! <33

    BASICALLY: Awesome vlog and HIIIIII GINGER. ^_^

  9. Yeah, so, I think I'm the last person on Earth that hasn't read Under the Never Sky. I looooved Dream Thieves and Perfect Ruin IS freaking gorgeous! I totally just realized that Of Metal and Wishes is by the author of Sanctum, another book that everyone has read but me. Happy Reading!!
