  1. I can't believe The Space BEtween Us is already out! I loved VIrtuosity almost too much and I have much fate in Jessica Martinez. I do hope you'll enjoy Ballad and The Raven Boys. I simply adore Maggie Stiefvater.
    Happy reading! You have so many wonderful books to choose from.

  3. I read Nobody's Princess a few years ago and really liked it. It's about a princess in one of the Greek city-states (Sparta, maybe). She wants to be a warrior like her brothers. I want to say it's about Helen of Troy before she became of Troy, but I can't remember exactly. It was too long ago.

  4. Holy moly, you went on a spree!

    LOVE AS King. For reals.

    I started to take Zom-B and What Happens Next, too, but I'm so buried in books right now that I figured I should restrain myself...though I'm kinda regretting that I didn't agree to them, because I kinda really want to read them. Especially WHN, which sounds really good.

    There a number you got that I'm curious about, so I'm going to be keeping an eye out for reviews.

    Also, I wish I would have known for sure that I was going to the Cat Valente signing, because I would have had you send your books to be signed - but it was up in the air pretty much until the last minute. =/ (Also, she said it's going to be a FIVE BOOK series!)

    Oh man, the end papers on Cavendish kinda make me need it.

    YAY!!! Thirteenth Child!! I love it. I really need to get book 2. Eff is one of my favorite characters.

    I believe it IS caffeine that is banned in ATTID, but the focus is choc/coffee (which isn't explained all the well in book 1, but is better in book 2).

    Oooh, I think I'm going to have to look into We The Drowned.

    1. Don't worry about the Cat Valente signing, I totally understand! Hopefully I get to meet her at some point. i did her at ALA that it will be five books. EEP!

      I didn't know sequels to THE THIRTEENTH CHILD were already out! Now I feel behind.

      Allison and I are going to host a read along for We The Drowned in January. You should totally join in.
