Gift:

  2. I haven't got the GalleyGRab email yet :( I really want the Pledge! The Girl in the Steel orset looks awesome too!

    I never liked the Need series but After Obsession is great so far, Dark Inside is my next read (doesn't it look awesome?!) & Haunting violet is fantastic,

    So like... enjoy! :)

  3. Hahaha I love Cait's reasons for buying you Shiver. Which I totally agree with, you so need to start that series! You're no longer a Stiefvater book-virgin after TSR, now you need a second taste ;)

    Awesome book hail this week! Super jealous of Dark Inside and After Obsession, I'm quite interested in those so can't wait to read what you think. Ooh I forgot to add The Pledge to my mailbox, but I'll probably end up waiting until I can get a print copy anyway. Hope you love Waterfall! ENJOY! :D
