  1. Zomg Tiger Lily! I've heard so many great thingsa bout that! I'm dying to read it. Same with The False Prince! I've always been unsure about whether or not I thought it sounded good, but I'd love to give it a try.

    Enjoy all your new books! :)

  4. Ohh great books this week!! Yay for Blind Spot. I got it too! Sorry I have been slacking on getting to your blog this week. I have been horrible about blog hoping the past 2 weeks.

  5. Great vlog! :) Send sounds so good and I'm reading it right now, and I'm so jealous of all those books you got! Tiger Lily sounds so good and I haven't read any Jennifer Echols so I can't tell you about that. :) Enjoy!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  6. Great books! Everyone is Raving this week about Tiber Lily!! Hope you enjoy! And glad to see you were able to snag a few freebies. Hopefully they will be good...but if not..well..they were freeeee! lol

  7. Tiger Lily looks awesome. Great haul of books. Enjoy all your new books.


  8. Oooh! You have some yummy new books there! Clarity and Unenchanted sound really interesting. Can't wait to see what you think about them!

    Happy reading!

  9. You got some really great books this week. Blind Spot looks freaky. I am going to have to look that one up!
    I hope that you enjoy all of your new books this week!

  10. Tiger Lily too! Fun! I actually like the ARC cover better! Sweet Venom has been on my list forever, too cool! Hope you like Hourglass! I adored it and the second books SO much! Great stories! Thx for stopping by Libby Blog & happy reading!

  11. Ok, so many awesome books!! Blind Spot looks seriously good, as does Tiger Lily! I've got The False Prince on my shelf waiting to be read. Both Sweet Venom and Clarity have been on my TBR for such a long time. I'm definitely going to have to get a copy of both!

    Fabulous haul, enjoy all those books! =)

  12. I really need to read Tiger Lilly. I keep putting it off. I am barely started on my BEA books! I swear I want to refuse books but I cant! lolz.
    I have Sweet Venom & Clarity too. I swear I will read this years book in 2014 at this rate!

    Week in(bookish)News:Sunday

  13. Awesome books this week!! Enjoy :)

    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by my blog!!

  14. Blind Spot was sooo good! I finally read my arc last week and sent it off to a friend of mine who wanted it. I love mysteries tho! hehe

    I totally forgot you were having all those troubles getting Tiger Lily! I'm so mean, I should've offered to send you my arc. Totally wasn't even thinking. :(

    Send sounds interesting. I've never read a bullying book from the bullies point of view. DOn't think I'd sympathize with them much tho. haha Just sayin! ;)

    Hope your having a fantastic week girl! And btw try Jennifer Echols new book Such a Rush *sighs* You will LOVE it!!! I promise!

  15. Fantastic books there! :D Happy reading!

  16. Fantastic haul! I've been wanting to check out Blind Spot...it has an intriguing premise. I think I'm going to have to break down and buy Tiger Lily. I was supposed to get it on an ARC tour, but it's taking too long and I want to read it NOW! :P
