    OMG! 55 books?? That’s just…woah. Whoop for 17! Driving lessons and all that good (terrifying) stuff πŸ™‚ I’ve got a few months to go…doubt I’ll get as many books as this though!

    I think you should read Of Poseidon by Anna Banks because I want to read a review of it!

    Gah, 55 books! So lucky! xD You should definitely read Partials and Fragments next; There such a great series! Although, you should probably read it in broad daylight, because it does have its scary parts. xD

    Omg wow! I’m overwhelmed by the possibly best Stacking the Shelves post I’ve seen so far! I looove your books and wish you a happy belated birthday:) I can’t wait to read Of Triton!! But I can recommend the majority of these books. Love Miranda Kenneally’s books, too. Happy reading! x

  27. 43 Jasprit April 28, 2013 at 2:43 PM

    Woah there are so many amazing books here that I would have no clue where to begin either! But I did adore Shatter Me and all three of Miranda Kenneally’s books, so would definitely recommend starting with either of them! I hope you enjoy all your reads! Happy birthday! And thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

  28. 45 Carmen B. April 28, 2013 at 3:08 PM

    Woah… I don’t even know where to look, that’s how many great books you got o.O
    I loved Anna and the French Kiss and Clockwork Prince! You also got a huge amount of books I’ve heard about and been meaning to read for a long time but haven’t gotten to yet: Article 5, Shatter Me, Cinder, Delirium, The Diviners… you’ve got some pretty damn awesome reading ahead of you! Oh, and The Night Circus is fantastic! Truly one of a kind πŸ™‚
    Thanks so much for stopping by my post! What you said about the gold print in Legend made me curious, so I flipped through my copy… but I didn’t find any 😦 Maybe it’s only in the hardcover?
    Happy reading, and happy birthday πŸ™‚

    • 46 Leigh (LittleBookStar) April 28, 2013 at 5:00 PM

      I’m currently reading Clockwork Angel and I’m not liking it so far 😦 I fell asleep twice while reading it. For now, I’m dropping it and picking up another book. I wish I loved it like other people lol. And the paperback edition of Legend has the gold print too! Thanks for stopping by Carmen! πŸ™‚

  29. 47 Melody April 29, 2013 at 1:34 PM

    Wow, awesome haul! So many great books, it would be so hard to choose which to read first. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  30. 48 Judith Pamela Ayimma April 30, 2013 at 6:33 PM

    I love the spine of This Is What Happy Looks Like, so bright and pretty! I think we got similar books this week, and I love your books πŸ˜€

  31. 49 Kyra May 22, 2013 at 12:11 AM

    WOW ! That is THE best haul I have EVER seen! I loved Clockwork Prince and I am currently reading Clockwork Princess and loving it! I want to buy me Capital Girls as I got the second one to review too!

    Cinder was AMAZING!

    I have Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker on my Kindle, and I must still buy Things I Can’t Forget! πŸ™‚

    The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is on my Kindle and I still need to read it! xD


    You should read Cinder first, it’s so amazing ❀
