Leave me a link to your end of the week posts in the comments! I'd love to stop by your blog.


  1. Whoa -- that's a lot of books. I LOVED Midnight Dress. I'll also be reading Kiss of Deception. The Tyrant's Daughter was interesting -- not your typical YA.
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

  2. I know. And I have so much homework to focus right now. It's driving me crazy!

    I keep hearing how amazing Midnight Dress is, so I can't wait to read it!

  3. Nice haul this week. I could only imagine the length of this post had you done images and links for all of the eARCs.
    Kristin @ Book Sniffers Anonymous

  7. Thanks for the giveaway. I want to read My Last Kiss

  8. The Kiss of Deception sounds great! I hadn't heard of it before this week, but now I'm so excited for it. Love Me also looks pretty good, I've been hoping to read Starstruck. I hope you enjoy all of your books :)

    -Montana @ The Book Belles

  9. I have Starstruck, but I find the covers extremely unappealing! But, I saw a girl reading it at the library and she assured me that it was good, so I need to just take the jacket off & get over it! ha!

  10. I still have to read Dennard's second book in the series, but I LOVED the first book! Plus, the covers are SO pretty!

  11. Mouseheart! It just looks cool.

  12. My Last Kiss and All the Boys I've Loved Before. :D

  13. I would love My Last Kiss and Half Bad.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. I'd love to win Elusion!! I'm totally in love with the cover. :)

  16. What a fantastic haul! I'm dying to get my hands on Between the Spark and the Burn!

  17. Minders sounds awesome! I actually just won a copy, so I can't wait to dive into it once it arrives. It'll be my first book by this author, but you have me really excited now!

  18. Hi Jen! It is so incredibly good! You should be very happy you won a copy. Be sure to keep an eye out for my upcoming interview with the author, Michele Jaffe! ;)


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
