Haley, it's good to have you back doing book hauls! (You should do vlogs again.. :) So many beautiful finished copies! Burning Blue sounds really interesting to me. I loved Something Like Normal and Pushing the Limits! I think you'll enjoy them too. Yay for ebooks! Miss Me Not and Ever sound like fantastic reads. Happy reading, Haley!

The Marriage Bargain was sweet and emotional, as was Pushing the Limits. LOVED both of them. Heard Beta was a let down, although people have different tastes do you might end up loving it. Want to read The Lost Prince so bad and oooohh!! Something Like Normal is supposedly really, really good:) HAPPY READING!

PS. Congrats on your anniversary:) 4 years is a long time, so that must be really exciting.
