    I also own Stormdancer, Glow & Mystic City but haven’t read 🙁 I got Boomerang from my library today but tonight I’m starting The Girl With All The Gifts.

      I’m hearing a lot of good things about Boomerang. It seems like it doesn’t follow the typical NA theme, which is very refreshing.

  2. Melliane

    Oh I looooved Written in Red, it was an awesome series and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did. Happy reading!

    • Stephanie

      LOL – It would be nice if we could buy authors, isn’t it? I’d be nicer than the woman from Misery, though. 🙂

  3. Whitney

    The Girl From the Well looks really interesting. I usually bulk at horror novels but Goodreads description reminds me of Death, the narrator of The Book Thief. I may have to check this one out. Have a great week!

      I’m reading The Girl From the Well right now. It’s OK, although it started to go downhill after the opening. Lots of Japanese mythology, which is interesting.

      I had done a good job of NOT requesting anything on EW recently, because I’m so backed up. But I just had to get some of those Harper titles. Hopefully I can catch up by the time they’re released!

    • Stephanie

      Aww – all of us are always going to covet someone else’s ARC, right? 🙂

    • Stephanie

      I hesitated to put all of these on here this week, because it just seems excessive. Let’s hope I can get them read in a timely manner.

  4. Greg

    Wow, $40 for all those! I have Glow, it’s pretty good but the third one is out and I haven’t read it yet. Liars Inc sounds good and I have Illusive in the wings too. Enjoy!!

      I know – some of them weren’t even on my radar at all, but when a new hardcover is $1.50, it can’t hurt to give it a shot.

    • Stephanie

      I still haven’t started the Anna series, but at least now I have both books!
