Monday Round Up!

One of my favourite memes hosted by the lovely Shelia over at Book Journey!

Crazy hectic week- full of 21st parties, surprise work, goodbye drinks,  visiting injured friends and driving around the countryside! Which means I had less time to blog as these events were all pretty spontaneous. This is a rushed post purely as I'm leaving for Graduation in half an hour!!

Reviews Posted
If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman- two amazing books!

  1. You've definitely had a busy week! I've heard good things about Gayle Forman books. I'll have to check her out.

    1. I was put off by the premise of her books but she is such a good author!
      Thanks for stopping by :)

      I second Lettie's comments on If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. Beautifully written and recommended.

      Lettie, Delirium by Lauren Oliver is an amazing-beyond-words book! It's been my top book this summer and the only 1 out of 56 books (all read from the library or online) that I liked enough to go out and buy. The sequel Pandemonium is just as good and really shows the transformation of the main character. I can't wait to read your review about it when you're done!

      P.S. Waiting for the final book in the Delirium trilogy to come out in Feb 2013 is killing me so I would recommend waiting a little before reading Pandemonium :P

    3. That is the thing I hate about series- the middle book is always a cliffhanger!
      I'm holding off on Delirium until next week and now I will be waiting on Pandemonium
      Thanks for the advice and comment!

  2. I'm impressed that you took time to post considering that graduation is right around the corner!

    Here's my
    It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
    Hope you will stop by!

    1. I love this monday post too much not too!
      Missed checking out everyone's posts this week though!
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Love the cover for If I Stay! Looks like last week was pretty awesome in reading, and hope you have another great one this week. I really liked Across the Universe & Delirium so hope you get to them soon.

    1. All I hear is great things about those two! Hopefully I'll be rushing out for the sequels!
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. Oooo! Super excited to see what you thought of Across the Universe!

    Happy reading :)

    1. I was tempted to save this one for my next readathon but good reviews and recommendations keep popping up!
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. You have some great books on this list! If I Stay, Where I Stay, Delirium and Across the Universe are all such great books. I hadn't seen the new Gayle Forman books- I am not sure what I think of them.

    Also, thank you for linking up at the Kid Lit to YA Monday Meme at

  7. All of your books look and sound so good!

  8. I seriously need to start on Gayle Forman's books– they sound amazing! :D and glad to see you enjoyed Princess of the Midnight Ball. I love Fairy-tale retellings. Hope you enjoy Across the Universe and Delirium! They're both really good, but GAH need to get my hands on the sequels. Any-hoo. Happy reading!
