  1. Great vlog this week. The Masque of the Red Death looks really interesting. The cover is pretty but I don't know much about it. I'm guessing that it's a mystery/historical type book. (Again, don't really much about it). Anywho, love all the stuff you got this week and looking forward to the next vlog. :)

  2. ha, that's funny! I read faster on my iPad than print books. no idea why, but I know a few others read faster, too.

    great vlog! enjoy all your books and can't wait to see your posts for the week. :)

  3. Enjoy all the books you got!! The only one I've read that you got was Masque of the Red Death, and I didn't really connect with the main character. Looking forward to seeing your review!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  4. Awesome books this week! I'm so jealous of Masque of the Red Death and The Wood Queen. Happy reading!

  7. What a great batch of books!

    I really want to read Briownies and Broomsticks and Kill Me Softly. I loved Deadly Cool.


  8. Nice haul! Masque is awesome and has one of my favorite covers ever!!

  9. Whoo I'm so glad you have a YouTube channel. I love watching these vlogs and yours is great!

    I've been wanting to read James and the Giant Peach when I was younger. I might have to pick it up now that you reminded me! Ahh I've heard Kill Me Softly was good. Can't wait to hear what you think :P

    Thanks for stopping by! And yes I wish I could display my books like that all the time, sadly we know there's not enough space lol. Read DIVERGENT. SO good!
