That's a great IMM you have this week! Congrats on the new job too!!

All These Things I've Done was really good! That book took me out of a reading slump I was experiencing, and was an absolute page turner. And Beauty Queens was so funny and entertaining! Hope you love them. :)

I really didn't enjoy Beauty Queens, but most other people seem to love it so I hope you do too! I love Ally Carter's books, they're so much fun.

Enjoy!

Oh, Beauty Queens... I don't think I'll read it. I loved the Gemma Doyle trilogy, but Libba Bray's other books have fallen flat for me. I like her twitter though! She's so funny. Hope you enjoy your books this week.

Christy @TheReaderBee said...

Awesome mailbox! I have Beauty Queens, and can't wait to read it! Enjoy!

Kristin said...

Thank you for stopping by! I've heard that Beauty Queens is filled with hilarity! Hope you enjoy!

starryeyedjen said...

I loved Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy and have picked up Beauty Queens several times, but I always put it back. Same with Going Bovine. I should give them a try, though. I can't wait to hear what you think...maybe it'll give me the push I need. :)

Sarah said...

Sorry for the late comment! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Al of these books look great! I really want to read Beauty Queens!
