  1. Hey Olivia!
    So many books! And the cover pages look really interesting. I feel bad I don't recognize any of the authors/books in your list, some of them look like they would be a good read. I look forward to seeing your reviews on them!

    1. I don't quite read as fast as this though... but I am working on getting there and making a lot more time for it! It helps that I am editing and not writing now though, because I have more time.

  6. So many great books. I do hope that you enjoy Fangirl! Maybe we could read All The Bright Places together and compare notes. It's been on my shelf since March, but I just haven't picked it back up. I really want to read Into The Dim too. Happy reading!

  9. This is such a cool haul :D It seems everyone is reading Ready Player One these day! I'm a bit hesitant to read it because I'm soooo not a gamer LOL. I'm still very curious about the book though... Okay, you know what? I'll wait for your review/rating and if you like it then I'll try to read it XD

  10. WOAH. That is one huge haul, Olivia! I'm excited to hear what you think about the Great Hunt -- I really loved Wendy Higgins' Sweet Evil series. Also I'm really looking forward to your thoughts on Dreamstrider! That one sounds AMAZING and the cover is gorgeous.
    Hope you enjoy these! :D

  15. Ready Player One and Fangirl are two of my favorites so I'm really hoping you enjoy them! & girl, Sleeping Giants is one of my most anticipated reads for next year, so I'm definitely requesting this soon. I was going to comment on most of your review copies, but shit me you have sooo freaking many lol. We def have similar tastes, because I see alot of the same titles I'll be requesting, and HOPEFULLY receiving! Happy reading Liv, hopefully you'll enjoy them :)

  19. Woahhhhh! That’s a heck of a lot of books! I never keep track of what books I got in a month/week/period of time, but I did get All the Bright Places this last month, too! I haven’t read it, but am pretty excited to get it off my tbr and onto my read list! It’s got a really unusual, distinct design and it’ll be good to find out what it’s actually LIKE. The Wrath and the Dawn is another I’m super keen to give a go! It sounds incredible, absolutely fascinating, and I hope you love it! I’ll keep my eye out for a review in the next little while, shall I? And Fangirl. I’ve been recommended I give it another go, since I only read a couple pages and put it down last time. And it does sound fairly awesome, I must say.

    1. I only keep track just for these posts! I hope you read it soon and will enjoy it! I have set up a buddy read with Lekeisha so I am looking forward to that... Excitement! I have heard The Wrath and the Dawn is romance heavy but isn't the original story as well? Reviews will be out as soon as I can read them all ^^

  20. Wow, so many books! I'm happy to see we have some of the same books for review. Anyway, looks like you'll be busy:-)

  21. I really really want to read The Wrath and The Dawn! However, the price of the ebook is keeping me away, lol. I just don't feel like spending that much money on a Kindle book I'm not sure I'll like. Dream Strider is also among the list of books I can't wait to read! There's just so many good books out there and so little time to get to read them. I wish there were a couple extra hours in a day, lol.

    1. I never really buy ebooks because for the most price I feel like the price isn't worth it and I would rather like the paperback? I use my kindle mostly for freebies and review copies! I know, we need more time!

  22. Oh wow, better cancel all your plans ever because you've got a LOT of reading to do, haha! How on Earth do you manage?

    By the way, I'm incredibly excited for you to pick up Ready Player One and hope you love it as much as I did! I've read it twice now :)

    1. Yeaaah that does make for a lot of reading! I don't know, I just love doing it? :P
      Twice already! Man, I need to read it my first time and catch up with everyone :3

  26. [ Laughs ] I wouldn't refer to that as a hoarding catastrophe; I would call it, "An exquisite library!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow I knew you read a lot but my goodness that is a huge haul. I do you keep all the books and story lines straight. I usually need some to process what I read. That would be hard for me to do with so many books waiting for me to read.

    1. Ahaha it is quite big but I will work my way through it! Knowing I have more to read only makes me more excited!
