My review of Sweetly:

Let me know in the comments what books you got in your mailbox this week!

Also, be sure to subscribe to our new Youtube channel. We will be posting all things Novel Thoughts there from now on.



  1. The Border's Sale is crack. Glad your back. Always enjoy your vlogs

  2. Great books! I wanted to go to Decatur Book Festival but I wasn't able to make it!

  3. Sweet. I'm going to see if my Borders closed today or not and hopefully grab some stuff too. I haven't read Julie Kagawa's books either! XD

  4. This Lullaby is one of Dessen's BEST books. Read it, read it, read it! :D


  5. Oh no! I think when you were talking about The Unwanteds that you just spoiled Book 7 of H.P. for me. I have been TRYING to keep away from reviews, movies, etc till I read the book. Well It was bound to happen since I am such a slacker. Great haul!

  6. Great books. I feel sort of bad about not reading any Sarah Dessen yet myself, particularly because she is from my state of NC. I need to remedy that.

    Seriously, though, great books.

  7. Hope you enjoy Inside Out! I absolutely LOVE Maria Snyder's work!! Total fan girl of hers! She writes an interesting YA series as well as her adult ones. Hope you enjoy it! Happy Reading!

    Here's my IMM

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  8. Lots of Great books this week! I got some books at borders this week too!

    My IMM- Book Briefs


  9. I love Pretty Little Liars. I read the books long before I even knew they were popular. As someone who's read all the (original) PLL books let me just say that the show is NOTHING like the books much past the firstish one. I'm watching the show going "What in the world?!"
    Anyway, sorry about that weird little blurb. Great IMM :]

  10. I like your haul! I've read some of these books.

    Happy reading!

  11. I want to get and read 'A Tale Dark and Grimm' so much!

  12. I'm ALWAYS hesitant to read a book when it's being marketed as something similar to Hunger Games or Harry Potter.

    I just found out about Colin Meloy a few days ago. I didn't know that either. Now I'm even more curious about his book!

  13. I really wanna read The Unwanteds, so I hope to get it soon - though HP meets Hunger Games?? Not so sure 'cus thats VERY high hype, but I'll see! Plus, I wanna give you some blogger awards, that you guys deserve!

  14. Wow...that's a lot of books! Y'all should probably do an IMM more often ;-)
