    1. Thank you! I've seen a million covers for Wuthering Heights and I don't think any of them have been bad.

      Delete
    2. Wuthering Heights has been good so far although I haven't read much because I've been distracted by other books.

  5. Great Haul! I got League of Strays from netgalley as well. I started reading it, but I don't know if it's for me. Hopefully it will get better though. And 50 Shades!!! I hope you like it. It's really an either you-love or hate-it book. Happy reading :)

  6. I keep hearing about League of Strays. I requested it on NetGalley, but I doubt I'll get approved. (New blogger, not a lot of followers) But it doesn't hurt to ask, I guess. I've had Rivers of London on my TBR forever. Really should read it- didn't the third book in the series just get released?

    1. That is exactly how I started out, not expecting a lot but in the end I got accepted for more than I could handle! Heh oops :) I hope you do get accepted. You could always rerequest nearer the release date!

    2. Yeah I think so Rivers of London is pretty great and well worth a look :D

  11. Hi Lauren,

    I'd love to know what Poltergeeks is like. It's one of those books that seems to be appearing everywhere at the mo.

    Hi Nia,

    I'm currently reading Rivers of London at present. I liked Ben's work on Doctor Who, so I've bought all three of his "Peter Grant" series of books.

    Nice haul ladies.

    Happy reading!!!
