Hi guys!

I'm on a temporary hiatus at the moment. I'm not sure how long it will be.

I've been taking some time off reading to concentrate on other hobbies that blogging hasn't given me much time for, I'm also having to get ready for university starting again in a few weeks!

There may be a few reviews popping up from pre-scheduled but at the moment I'm taking some time off!!

  1. Ooh, The Demon's Lexicon has been on my TBR forever! I guess now would be a good time to read it now that the entire trilogy is out. Great haul this week! Happy reading :)

  2. No way- I just realised I swopped Mortal Kiss and Magic Lost Trouble Found with you on RISI!!! Small world:)I can't wait to read Birthmarked so thank you so much for swopping.

    Have you joined UK Swap Shop on Goodreads? I swop books there too, plus chat about random book stuff it's fab.

  3. i've never seen that version of i'd tell you i love you, but then i'd have to kill you. i'm guessing it's the uk version? i like it!

    here's what i got in my mailbox!

  4. Wow- you got some amazing books this week- most of them are on my wishlist! I have read 0.4, I'd Tell You I Love You, and Demon's Lexicon, and loved all of them. Enjoy your books!

  5. Howl's Moving Castle is amazing, I hope you love it!

    I'm curious about 0.4, I hope it turns out to be a good read!

    Great mailbox this week, happy reading!

  6. Old follower hopping through to say wow - you got some great titles this week! Happy reading!

  7. I like how they redesigned that heavenly cover. I got the plain old one with that one coloured scheme whatever you want to call it.

    I just recently read 0.4 and it was an okay sci-fi read. People been loving it but I felt it was too unreal. Check out my review if you want.

  8. I've got Blood Magic in my TBR pile, I think I'm going to read it next. I've read Newes from the Dead by Mary Hooper, so I'd like to read Fallen Grace too.

  9. Awesome IMM for you :D I quite liked 0.4 It was short but really interesting. I'm curious to read the sequel, even if it could have been a stand-alone. I hope you'll like them all :) Happy reading!
