  2. I love Hex Hall and The Hunt was really good as well. I got Masque of the Red Death this week too. Enjoy your books :)

  3. I still haven't read Hex Hall - so late to the party. The Hunt was... strange. Definitely an acquired taste!

  4. I'm so excited to read Masque! I got it last week, but I still haven't started it yet.

    Enjoy all your books!

  5. I'd really like to read Hex Hall, I've heard good, good things!

  6. The Hunt looks good! And I'm excited to read my copy of Hex Hall!

  7. Sounds like you had a totally awesome week. :) I read You Against Me a while back and really enjoyed it. I hope that you do, too. Underworld has a very pretty cover. I wasn't a big fan of Abandon, unfortunately. Maybe I'll give it another go? (And maybe we'll see more from John in the sequel?)

    Anyway, have a great week and enjoy your new books. :)

  41. WOOHOO. Fab books, Anna! You can tell you're excited about The Hunt :D I am too, but I'm a little nervous about it at the same time. I'm not set to read it for another month so tweet me if you happen to like it. I liked Abandon, but I'm really hoping that Underworld is way better. Have you read Goddess Interrupted yet? I didn't like The Goddess Test all that much but the sequel rocked :D

    Have an amazing reading week!
