Good week! I'm going to assume it would probably help to read Geek High first, I haven't read either yet though! Is Meyer's like Target and Walmart? I've never heard of it!

Reverie said...

Alea said...

Amazing Vlog as usual, I just adore them and you had a really good week in books. Prom Dates from Hell is really good. I had to re-read it to get the intro story on Avery Madison before getting into Once Dead Twice Shy. I cannot wait to see what to see your reviews

I haven't read The Host either but my best friend loved it.

MssJos said...

Oh I am jealous! Paper Towns has been on my wishlist forever-I think I'm going to have to break down and buy it! Hope you enjoy it! :)

Shalonda said...

Paper Towns! You're going to love it!

Jealous of Saving Francesca and Love You Hate You Miss You!

Great book week Hope!! Ya'll don't know what a Meijer's is! It's like a Wal-mart.

I was thinking they were country-wide... but i guess not.

Alea said...

Do you guys have Target? You MUST have Target?

Hope. said...

I thought Meijer was country-wide too! Which is why I didn't explain it, lol. But, yes, Alea, we do have Target. (:

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I didn't realize Meijer wasn't all over either..haha that's funny, but yes, Wal-Mart and Target I do have as well (Kentuckyyy lol).

Lovely blog as usual Hope. I love that you do this every week. It's fun. Nice books. I really want a lot of them, like Beautiful Americans and Paper Towns.

Lots of great books. I agree Korianne's handwriting isn't that bad...

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

The Host is really good but very different to The Twilight Saga. I hope you enjoy it!

Lilibeth Ramos said...

You need to read The Host, it's super awesome! Yes it is confusing but only if you don't understand it. I think it makes sense only if you read it all at the same time lol! Two days straight, no sleep, mom was very, very mad! So glad my room has a lock inside lol!

I'm jealous of Love You Hate You Miss you!(:
Great week for you!

I personally couldn't get into The Realm of Possiblty, so I ended up never finishing it. Maybe you'll have better luck!

Katie said...

You had a great week! I just got An Abundance of Katherines from the library so I hope I'm able to get into it..The YA Book Swap looks really cool. How do you get involved in that?

Jessica Kennedy said...

Nice books!

I could NOT read The Host. It was terrible. I might try again much later when I forget about Twilight a bit but I could not get past the first 50 pages or so.

Good luck!

Erika Lynn said...

you had an amazing week! I am on book three of the Jessica Darling series and i am really enjoying it. Enjoy all your other books! and don't forget to watch some 80s movies soon!

Ok so I dont understand how exactly you got all those books and everything and im kinda curious and also The Host is, not confusing, just kinda hard to get into in my opinion. I own it and have read about half but the parts that I have read is good but its hard to get into.
