  1. WHOA. I can’t tell you how excited I am to read The Hero’s Guide!! It sound SO AWESOME!!
    Also, I need to check out the kindle store for Of Blood and Honey. That one has been on my TBR for ages and I’ve never managed to snag a copy anywhere.
    I seriously am so jealous about The Hero’s Guide. The whole premise sounds so fantastic. I can’t wait to read it and see what you think of it. πŸ™‚

  2. I have Abandon but haven’t read it yet…should get on that πŸ™‚
    Nice books this week! Happy Reading πŸ™‚

  3. Love the Gallagher Girl books. Hope that you will enjoy reading the first one (the series gets better with each book).

    I am, oh so, envious that you got The Heroes Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. It sounds like such a great read and I cannot wait to see what you think about it.

    Happy reading. =)

  4. Oh I got The Starboard Sea this week too. Cool.

  5. I really need to read some Meg Cabot! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week! Come check out my IMM!

  6. The Galagher Girl series by Ally Carter is so much fun! I can’t wait to hear what you think of I’d tell you I love you but then I’d have to kill you.

  7. A very eclectic connection there, April. I do love variety. As always, happy reading!

  8. I still need to read Abandon–I got a copy signed when I met Meg Cabot last summer. Great books, April!

  9. Hope you enjoy all your great books! I read At the SIgn of the Sugared Plum years ago when it was first published, and really enjoyed it.

  10. Small mailbox this week (for you) πŸ˜€

    The paperback of Abandon looks really good–I haven’t read it but have been meaning to.

    Enjoy everything!

  11. Everything I need to know I learned from Romance Novels sounds interesting!! I’m going to have to look into that one πŸ™‚

    As always – great haul this week! I need to read Abandon, and to psych myself up I’m off to read your review πŸ™‚

  13. I need to read Abandon. I KNOW.

  14. Oooh, Of Blood and Honey sounds really good. Totally just got it for myself. πŸ™‚

  15. I feel like I should make it a goal to read books by authors with my last name (even spelled correctly!). Hmm.. this is the, um, 3rd? one I have seen.

  16. I still really need to read Abandon! I’ve heard such great things about it! Great Haul!

  21. I am really looking forward to reading The HeroÒ€ℒs Guide To Saving Your Kingdom! Hope you enjoy them all.

  22. I got that paperback of Abandon too- it’s my third copy (well, technically fourth if you count the repeat ARC I got last year). I got 2 ARCs, the hardcover, and now the paperback. I’m gonna donate it.

    Ally Carter’s books are AMAZING- hope you enjoy it!

  23. Nice Ally Carter and Meg Cabot books! The Hero’s Guide does indeed look awesome. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it.
    Happy reading, April!

  24. I haven’t read Abandon yet, but it looks fantastic. I swear I cannot keep up with the books I want to read – I’m adding them to my TBR list faster than I can read them.. πŸ™‚ Great haul this week!

  25. The cover for Hero’s Guide looks FANTASTIC! Oh man, that’s one of those that if I saw it at the store, I’d buy it without even looking at the synopsis.

    I have I’d Tell You I Love You on my Netgalley but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’ve read Heist Society and loved it!

  26. I really enjoyed The Prisoner in the Palace. Great books this week!

  27. I want to get to Abandon with the sequel finally coming out, but I am oh so giddy over The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom! I looks like so much fun, I really hope it doesn’t disappoint–looking forward to reading your review. =)

  28. Thanks for the reminder that Sarah Wendell was the keynote speaker for last years BBC, I thought she was hilarious and now I want to read that book too!

  29. Abandon has been on my wishlist since I first heard about it. I love the cover and heard many good things about it. Enjoy reading!

    Here’s my Mailbox.

  30. I wonder what you will think of Abandon. I know I’m looking forward to Hero’s Guide or rather your review of it. Happy reading.
