{ Thoughts }
This was actually from last week’s book haul but I forgot to do a Showcase Sunday – woops! I’ve actually already read and reviewed The Moon and More (see review here) and I wasn’t a fan. I’ve heard so many good things about Sarah Dessen’s work but I was really disappointed with this! I think I just hyped it up in my head :( I also went a little cray on Netgallery but who cares because there were so many awesome books on offer! Most excited about Double Crossed (love all of Ally Carter’s books), The Elite (though I heard it’s something like The Bachelor?!), Unbreakable (hot cover!), Acid (saw some people raving on Goodreads) and INK (had my eye on this for a while now!). Will have to put off reading all of these for a while though because my exams start on Monday waaaah :(
What did everyone else get this week?

    Great haul! I only read The Elite out of these but it wasn't good. It was more of a guilty pleasure read. :)

    And thanks for the giveaway!

    I've got so many I want; I don't know what I'd choose. :) I love your NetGalley reads! I'd totally get The Elite, but I haven't read The Selection yet.

      Me neither! When it first came out everyone was raving about it but the most recent reviews seem to be fairly negative :(


    Super showcase, I didn't enjoy Ink as much as I thought I would and I'm really looking forward to starting Acid…erm…that sounds wrong, but you I'm sure you know what I mean!
    Happy reading
