  1. WOW, you have a lot of great-looking books on your list. I have read both Dark Swan (which I liked) and Beautiful Creatures (which I loved).

    I am adding the Not a Children's Book to my TBR - twisted humor is the best!

    Happy reading :)

    Here's my It's Monday... post for this week.

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who declares "subject to change based on mood"... that's why I have so many books going and I will STILL pick up a different book to read!

    1. I am reading the book before I get the movie next week. Then I can compare them (books almost always win). Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Nice, diverse collection of books. I have heard of most of them personally. Wondered about whether to pick up Beautiful Creatures, though I see your other commenters have enjoyed it. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks! I do tend to read all sorts of genres. Beautiful creatures seems liked on this post, but I got a more mixed reaction on Saturday's stacking the shelves. Hot debate with that book I guess. Thanks for stopping by!

      I am not sure I want to see the Silver Linings movie first, or read the book first.

  10. I like to read based on my mood as well. Sadly, I've been in a bit of a rut lately because I over-scheduled myself with review books. Whoops!

    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  13. I liked Beautiful Creatures, which I read years ago when it first came out, and I bought all the other books as they came out too but I've been really lazy about reading them! There're quite a few YA series I've one that with. ;) Have a great week!

    1. Haha, I can understand about being lazy finishing a series. Even those I like. :)

  18. I read it Boarded Window a while ago & enjoyed it :) Short, but so good! You had a great reading week! And I hope you're enjoying BC, I know that not everyone enjoyed it, and have given up, but I myself loved it, and I've read it twice :) Happy reading!

    1. I enjoyed BC, but can't quite say I loved it. I liked it considerable more than the movie, however. Thanks for stopping by and sorry for the delayed response.

  19. I may have to look for that picture book. I find picture books for older readers to be fun. Lots of interesting titles.

  20. Wow that's a lot you got done. I think I've only heard of Beautiful Creatures but I hope you enjoy the rest. I find I always make a list of what I want and need to get done with my book list and very rarely do I stick to what's on my list...oh well. 8)

    Hope you have an awesome week and thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! 8)

    1. I usually stick to part of it but the rest gets pushed off to another time. So easy to get sidetracked by another book... :)
