Hello bookish friends,
It was a great week for us in terms of new books AND blogging. Here are our posts in the last two weeks.

Leslie hardly cries when reading but this one made her cry rivers.

Perfect for those who likes their romantic suspense heavy on the suspense and light on the romance. Includes my thoughts and an excerpt.

Southern gothic. 'Nuff said.

Book 2 in Maya's new Surrender trilogy. It comes out next week Tuesday (5/6). Read my thoughts about it and get a sneak peek.

    Clockwork Princess is immense. I really enjoyed how the series was wrapped up and I hope she wraps up TMI the same way! :)

    Thanks for sharing & enjoy all your books!

  5. Great assortment of books. I'm still reading my May releases and so have been avoiding both Edelweiss and NetGalley - but Divided was really tempting. Come see what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  8. The Fifth Avenue series sounds good, I'll have to check it out. I'm insanely jealous of Get Even and Snow Like Ashes. Enjoy them all :) My STS

  9. There's a significant moment when the fight turns truly intense and it slowly pulls back to reveal juts how devastated chanel outlet Marineford is from all of the fighting that has gone on. It really strikes home just how intense everything has chanel outlet been with all the Devil Fruit abilities used on top of the plain fighting. With Blackbeard's crew taking on Whitebeard while everyone watches, it's a powerful sequence, one that turns lv outlet into an interesting flashback for Whitebeard that helps to cement him even more as an interesting character. Whitebeard really has come across well across this whole arc, though it took time for him to get to it, but the results here are very powerful as he stands firm against Blackbeard and all of Marineford. What he says during this truly places fear into Sengoku and he uses the moment to chanel replica start the true change to the world that will happen. It is a game changing event in full.
