  1. Ooh, have fun in India!

    Fantastic haul :) It feels like everyone is reading the Lunar Chronicles, but I dunno... Is it any good? Looking forward to your review of Cress.

    1. Thank you, Cora! I do highly recommend the Lunar Chronicles, they have to be my favourite retellings ever!

  2. I'm jealous of how excited everyone is about IGNITE ME and CRESS. I've still only read the first book in both series, so I couldn't even join in the fangirling!

    Have a fabulous time in India! I hope you packed plenty of reading material so you have tons to talk about when you get back to blogging again. :)

  6. Where Silence Gathers! *high fives* I cannot wait to read that sequel, and I'm glad we both got it this week. I read and loved Alienated, as I'm sure you know by now LOL. Glad you got a copy! I actually didn't get copies of Ignite Me or Cress. I have Shatter Me and Unravel Me, but have not read either book. I read Cinder, but not Scarlet. So, I probably won't finish the Lunar Chronicles. But I hope to binge-read the Shatter Me series over the summer :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Pili!

    1. *high fives* I'm so excited to read Where Silence Gathers, hopefully even this week, since I'm gonna be on holidays soon! ;)

      I do love both series, and I'm sad to hear you didn't like Cinder enough to want to read the rest of the series! I cannot wait to see what you think of binge reading the Shatter Me series!

      Thank you, Alyssa!
