I am so excited for some of these! I'm going to be going out to by Tiger Lily especially right away, and I'll be some of these others too!

Have an awesome time booking this week, my darling roses!



  1. Ahhh, Judy Blume got me thru the elementary time of my childhood. And see you're reading The Wild Princess. I really LOVED it. Hope you do too.

  2. I really want to read The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life by Tara Altebrando and 52 Reasons to Hate my Father by Jessica Brody. I love books that take place in one night so Best Night sounds fun. 52 Reasons sounds angsty and funny as well.

  3. I'm really excited about Tiger Lily too! I think it's prolly my second most anticipated July reads.

  4. Tiger Lily can not be a happy book. Peter Pan has to leave her for Wendy right? I really don't/do want to read this. But look at all those other amazing books too! So many to choose from!

    1. I know...but I still really want to read it! I simply can't seem to help myself. I keep gravitating towards it even though I know it must not end well for Tiger Lily.

  5. Tiger Lily and Waking Storms are a total MUST for me!! SO excited :) Didn't realize the release day for these books was already upon us!!

  6. Dark Companion, Tiger Lily, and Once! :D Whooohoo for a great release week! :D Did you know...I actually had no idea it was a girl on the front of Tiger Lily? LOL I just noticed that the other day and was like OOOOHH MY GOSH that's gorgeous!! ;)
