  12. The only book I read in this list as Beautiful Creatures. And at the end, I actually wanted the bad guy to prevail and strangle the main characters; it didn't turn out well for me. I hope you enjoy your books. Let me know which ones I should read... Happy reading!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

  27. That's a lot of books you got there! I have Viral Nation as well and can't wait to read it! I've been eyeing it for ages XP Beautiful Creatures is another title I'm familiar with, but read from many reviews it sucks rat's balls =P But I hope you have a better experience with it than many others! I'm wondering if the movie was better or what...

    Thanks for stopping by my STS!

    1. Yes, viral Nation is a top one I look forward to. Beautiful Creatures seems to get a mix of love/hate. So I have to read it for myself. I sometimes enjoy reading books just for the polar reactions people have. :)

  28. Gosh, what an incredible haul!! You seem to have loaded up on the latest titles! I'm going to check tem all out! I'm only interested in the print editions, though.... No e-kooks or me!!

    1. Yea, sadly most books I get are ebooks nowadays. Especially when so many are free or under $3. Once it goes over that, I always try to get them in print. I always prefer print when I can. :)

  29. I really want to read Losing It soon; I have the e-book. I hated Beautiful Creatures, but I only read a few chapters, so maybe it gets better. Thanks for stopping by my StS.

    1. Well I hope we both enjoy Losing It then. Beautiful Creatures seems alright so far. I wasn't expecting it to be from the guys perspective though. Not very far into it yet.
