    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  18. Ahh you have the Throne of Glass UK version. That one is pretty too. It looks anime to me though. The 13th Sign sounds like a good one! Loving the cover too. I hope you all had a wonderufl holiday!!! xoxo

  22. Megan @ Megz Madd Readz

    I keep hearing really good things about A Song of Fire and Ice. I’ve never read anything by him before but the series sounds really good and I do like fantasy. I bought quite a few books over the last couple weeks (it’s my book addiction, lol). All the ones I’ve one/been gifted are ones I haven’t heard of before so I’m eager to read them and see if I like them :)

    Happy New Year!

  23. EM Castellan
