Wake Unto Me is awesome! I can't wait to get my hands on Lemniscate, and So Over You looks great too. I loved Hayes' Falling Under so I might check this out soon. Happy reading!

I've heard Grace is such a powerful Dystopian and I really need to get my hands on a copy. Can't wait to hear what you think about it. I also really want to read Wake Unto Me. Enjoy all you lovely books and happy reading!

Missie said...

Don't you just love it when you read an ARC and LOVE the book so much that you just have to own it. Happens to me all the time. :)

Gotta admit, I'm curious about Wake Unto Me. Looking forward to seeing your review for it.

Hope you enjoy this lot.

Looking forward to your thoughts on THE DEAD I KNOW. A gushy blurb by John Marsden? Plus, Aussie YA. I'm due for another shot anytime soon. :P

I'm waiting for STAY in paperback...I think. I had a swap ready with Holly but she never responded back, so I dunno.

I like seeing your non-YA stuff too. Reminds me that you're almost an eclectic reader. :P

Nina said...

Awesome books. Looking forward to your reviews. ;)

Leanna (Daisy Chain Book Reviews) said...

Great mailbox!

I can't wait to hear what you think of Wake unto me - I've been curious about that one!

Blueicegal ♥ said...

Yay for Stay and Grace, enjoy dearie :)

SweetestLittleBookworm said...

These all sound great, but I want to say that Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is a life-changer. Seriously. I can't wait to read your thoughts on it.

Alexa said...

GRACE is amazing, but so haunting and nothing like Elizabeth Scott's other books. I hope you love ti though.

I've heard great things about Stay - looking forward to your review :)

Tina said...

WOW- what a great list...Redeeming Love is one of my all time favs. You'll have to tell me what you thought...:)

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

Fabulous mailbox, Nic! I loved Stay, and I have Angel Star on my shelf right now...I need to read it so I can get to Lemniscate! :)

A Canadian Girl said...

You got Wake Unto Me too :) I've got Angel Star on my wishlist, and Grace is the only one of Scott's novels which I haven't read yet so let me know what you think of it.
