Book Haul, or the One With the Birthday Surprise

Hey, it's my face again! My face talking about books! And my dog! I tried to get her to talk about books, too, but she was feeling a little shy.

Books mentioned:

A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Books received for review:

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn (Thanks, Macmillan!)

Movies purchased, because why not:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Frozen: The Greatest Cinematic Achievement of Our Time

Weekap, aka all the cool things that happened this week on the blog:

I didn't do a haul last week, so lucky you, getting two weeks' worth of posts for the price of one!

I read, sobbed over, and reviewed The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I listed my top ten favorite retellings

I reviewed the exceptionally disappointing Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

I swooned over some of my favorite "opposites attract" romances

I reviewed Panic by Lauren Oliver and Landry Park by Bethany Hagen

I listed the books I'm most excited to read this spring

And lastly, I vlogged about Disney Princesses and books! It makes sense. 


  1. Ooh, Anna and Lola! Still waiting to get my grubby mitts on the next one.. Isla I think.

    ★ Under The Mountain ★

  2. Swag is always great and a poem? That's very cool! I still need to read A Mad Wicked Folly but I'm already in love with how gorgeous my hardback is!

    And Ginger is always so adorable!!

  3. I still haven't read The Selection, but I love your reaction to it! Also those Anna and Lola covers are amazing!

  4. I bought Anna awhile back, and then I ordered Lola and at first I was disappointed I didn't receive the edition that was pictured (I like purple hair), but now I"m actually really happy to have the similar editions of the two sitting side by side! I'll probably get Isla too... but I'm going to try to wait until it comes out in paperback. Which I think I can do since I haven't actually read any of them yet, despite my best intentions!

    Happy early birthday! You can never go wrong with books.

    Also I think (and no offense to you, Gillian, because you totally rock) that Ginger might just be my favourite book blogger. ;)

  5. Awesome sounding books!!! Happy Reading! Here's my STS if you'd like to stop by.
