Other Books Released This Week:

Let me try this again.  I already wrote this post once, only to have it delete when I tried to post it!!  I had to walk away for a while before I could even think of starting all over.  I decided that I wasn't going to let whatever glitch happened get the best of me, and so I finally did come back and re-do the entire thing.  But on to the books.....

I'm really excited for David Klaas's new book Losers Take All.  I absolutely loved You Don't Know Me (and can't rec it enough), so I'll definitely be reading this new one from him.  I also want to read Wolf by Wolf, If You're Lucky, and I'm almost finished with Illuminae.  What are you reading this week??

  1. Born to endless night was amazing :) Love Malec <3

    1. Glad you liked it!! That Shadowhunter series seems to come out with books constantly!! Must be fun for their fans to always have new stuff to look forward to!

  2. If You're Lucky is one I really want to read. Also Illuminae mostly because everyone loves it and it seems so original.

    1. Illuminae is fun if you like epistolary style. I'm wondering how crazy If You're Lucky gets....

  3. Illuminae <----- I cannot recommend this book enough!!!
