In the month of March I got......
For Review/Won/Bought
An Uncertain Choice (An Uncertain Choice #1)  by Jody Hedlund (For review) Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff (Won) Red Queen (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard (Bought)
I have to admit I can't wait to read the Red Queen but I do have to say I was a bit annoyed at myself for accidentally buying the paperback UK version of Red Queen instead of the hardback. God, I was so excited that I didn't even bother checking what version I was buying. *shakes head* Oh well, it happens! As for An Uncertain Choice and Paper Valentine don't they both have such pretty cover's, I'm totally reading them when I get the chance!

That's all for this week! Leave a comment and/or link to your Stacking …

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

All the Rage by Courtney Summers (ARC) Review

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery, Realistic Fiction, Abuse, Thriller Release Date: April 14, 2015 Pages: 336
Goodreads Summary
The sheriff’s son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything—friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy’s only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her name or her past there; she can finally be anonymous. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn’t speak up. Nobody believed her the first time—and they certainly won’t now — but the…

This weeks question:
Have you ever been inspired by a book character to do something? Who was the character and what was it? Suggested by Eternity Through Pages
I feel like every book I read influence's me in a way (except vampire books because vampires aren't real or are they?). Whether its to become stronger or go on and keep searching for that dream I can't seem to find. I know I'm being very vague but at this very moment I can honestly not think of a book. Gaahhh I feel very lame....and frustrated because it's a simple question and yet I can't answer it properly.

Series: Precious Stone Trilogy #1 Publisher: Henry Holt Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Time Travel, Historical Fiction, Romance Release Date: May 10, 2011 Pages: 336
Goodreads Summary
Sixteen-year-old Gwen lives with her extended - and rather eccentric - family in an exclusive London neighborhood. In spite of her ancestors' peculiar history, she's had a relatively normal life so far. The time-traveling gene that runs like a secret thread through the female half of the family is supposed to have skipped over Gwen, so she hasn't been introduced to "the mysteries," and can spend her time hanging out with her best friend, Lesly. It comes as an unwelcome surprise when she starts taking sudden, uncontrolled leaps into the past.
She's totally unprepared for time travel, not to mention all that comes with it: fancy clothes, archaic manners, a mysterious secret society, and Gideon, her time-traveling counterpart. He's obnoxious, a know-it-all, and possibl…

This weeks question:
Have you come up with any special memes or features on your blog that you'd like people to visit more?


Sadly, I haven't though I have tried to come up with some but it was just a complete failure. I couldn't come up with anything and then I got a headache (and annoyed) just trying to come up with just one. *cries* And don't even bother asking about discussion post.....


 So I give props to those who come up with some, you guys are amazing!
