  1. Omg I can’t wait for All The Stars And Teeth to come out, plus I love the cover 😍😍 I’m desperate to get on with The Beautiful but I’m being good and focusing on library books first which should include The Starless Sea soon – my copies finally on transit ☺️ ooh when I catch up I totally want to treat myself to The Evil Queen too, I’ve had my eye on that for a while. I hope you both love these books ❤️❤️

      1. Oh really? My library doesn’t have it atm I don’t think /: Although I believe it was released in Hardback last month sometime so maybe it’s been added since I last checked (it was only out as an ebook where I live previously). And me too; I haven’t read lately so I’m even more behind 😦 I’m hoping to start up again soon and really start getting some of the books that I want to read though. Including The Beautiful & Queen Of Nothing!

  2. I got A dress for the wicked from the library and several Christmas books. I also bought 10 Blind Dates and that second bookworm book I can’t remember the title of… read both already. I DID have The Beautiful checked out from the library but I couldn’t get into it so it was a DNF for now. I got the Christmas shopaholic book by Sophie Kinsella from the library too.

    Basically I only bought two ebooks this month and that’s really good for me. Also first time in awhile I bought books!

    Let me know what you think of The Evil Queen. I tried to get into it but haven’t gotten into it yet when I had it checked out last. It is on the library ebook wish list again whenever it is available again.

      1. I think it came out this year! Or sometime recently. I wasn’t into it though. I prefer her standalones.

        Ohh I had a bad vibe from The Evil Queen. Ohh irony lol. Didn’t even try to force it.
