  2. I think I got How to Save a Life in last year's Kindle January sale! Still haven't read it which is why I'm trying not to buy random ebooks this year...

  4. Wow, I love the cover for Paranoia! I didn't realise it had one already. I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book, but I look forward to seeing what you think. And I still need to read How To Save a Life one day! I've heard nothing but good things about it. Enjoy! :)

    1. Thank you Sam! I still need to read Insomnia too, but I'm hoping I'll manage to enjoy the two books! And hopefully I'll read How To Save a Life soon-ish, I'm hoping to read more stand alones this year!

  5. I'm just reading Roomies by Sarah Zarr and its amazing so far. So I think I would be very interested to see what How to Save a Life is like.If you enjoy it, I would definitely recommend Roomies. :) Paranoia I've heard of but I haven't had a chance of reading it yet. But the cover is awesome, different from what I've seen before. Hope you enjoy them all and Happy 2014. :)

  7. I was considering getting How to Save a Life, but it sounds like one of those books that'll have me in tears so I'm not sure. I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing what you think of it.
    Steel Lily & Paranoia both look amazing!

  9. I got Steel lily just recently and read the first 15% or so. It seems to be very well written. I also have a Sara Zarr book bought months ago, so I should probablyget around to it already.
    Happy reading, Pili! Enjoy!

    2. Insomnia was great (and I think I reviewed it this past summer)! I really loved the concept and I just thought it was creepy and fantastic! I'm definitely intrigued by the sequel, so I'm excited to start it :)
