  10. Interested what you think of Enclave. I’ve heard it’s very good, more intense than The Hunger Games. Also, very jealous of your HP related books.

  11. Vesper and Enclave look great. You made some good choices with your gift card!
    I am really liking audiobooks lately & hope you enjoy your audible book.

  13. Great vlog! I just got The Darlings Are Forever this weekend and I am dying to read Vesper. The Harry Potter cookbook? That sounds like a lot of fun. I look forward to your reviews; enjoy all your books!

  14. How cool! I had no idea there was a HP cookbook! I’ll have to seek it out next bookstore trip, I’m looking forward to Darlings, Vesper and Enclave. Can’t wait to hear what you think of them!

  15. I have Harry, A History but haven’t read it yet. And I MUST get the Harry Potter Cookbook – I think it would be so much fun to make the recipes we all have read about. Happy reading πŸ™‚

    Also also….I want that cookbook.

  19. Great week
