Seems like you definitely had a great week. ;) You were even mentioned in my IMM this week, since your vlog a while back got me to buy Between. :) So thank you for that; it looks awesome! Hope you'll enjoy all your new reads when you get to them. :)

I didn't realize you pronounce young adult books as "ya books" instead of Y. A. books... it doesn't matter, but I thought you were calling them "Heeyaw" books- I was confused and couldn't stop giggling!

Have a good week!

Speaking of Enclave, I'm giving away a SIGNED COPY of it over on my blog, if anyone's interested. I'm about half way through reading it and it's ridiculously good. The Freaks are freaking me out...

Meridian is one of my all time favorites.

By the way, I love your vlogs! You are so adorable!

If I Stay is really good, I hope you like it! The second one, Where She Went is even better! I haven't started the Dead Beautiful series yet, but it looks really good. New follower! Happy Reading :0)
