  1. Aagh, Ascend! I read and really enjoyed Switched and Torn, but my library's only copy of Ascend is labeled as "Lost: Long Overdue", which makes me sad as I am now firmly invested in the story.

    Also: Insurgent. Read. Loved. Now dying for third book.

    Also again: Immortal Rules. Haven't read. Dying to read. Looks awesome.

    Happy reading to you guys!!

    Check out what I got at Geek Chic This Week (:D)

    1. I can't wait for the third book!!! That is sad about Ascend, I hate when people don't return their books (hated myself because I once lost a library book, I paid them for it though!)

      I'm hoping Meghan enjoys The Immortal Rule because I thought it was amazing!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    2. I have read the first two books in the trylle trilogy as well and loved them! I gotta get myself a copy of ascend. I don't know what I haven't already. I am also really really looking forward to Immortal Rules, I know Jenn loved it a lot, and we tend to feel the same about most books :).
      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I bought two of Amanda Hocking's books and am going to read them this summer.
    Loved Immortal Rules -- I'm sure Meghan will like it!

    Have not yet finished Insurgent but I'm going to go read your review of that anyway.

  9. Switched, Torn, Ascend! INSURGENT!! Oh my gosh, besides the name of your new mailbox meme being completely adorable in that Harry-Potter-is-awesome way, you have so many awesome books this week! I absolutely adore the Trylle Trilogy and can't wait to read the final book, and I recently read & loved Insurgent too! (SO GOOD!) Plus, The Immortal Rules just rocked my socks off and I hope it rocks yours off too!

    Awesome owl post this week, Jenn! I hope you enjoy all of your books! :)
