Well hello and good day to my favorite roses! You guys are so wonderful, you know that? I love all of you so much.

Sorry about that. I just had a random inexplicable moment of feel for all you wonderful muffins. I'll move on in a moment.

Okay, so, it's Monday! And you all know what that means. It means it's time for an excerpt. And a giveaway.

Infatuate (Gilded Wings, #2)
Aimee Agresti
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Release Date: March 5, 2013
His hand on my arm, he spoke into my ear. "I understand how things are, of course. But if it's all right I may still have to love you forever. Okay?"

So, there you have it. I absolutely adored this book. (I'm also Team Lucian. You should be too.) I already can't wait for the last installment. But in the meantime, 5 preorders are being given away!

So, please read my Giveaways page before entering. I'm asking nicely, and it will be better for everyone, I promise. Oh, and here's your :)

The best of luck to all of you! x



  1. I read the blurb on goodreads and it sounds great.
    thank you for the giveaway

  2. I just finished 'Illuminate' over the holidays, and I can't believe I waited so long to read it. Thanks for the excerpt for 'Infatuate'- it makes me excited to read it!

  3. What a pretty cover! I still haven't read Illuminate yet, but I have it and plan on getting to it sometime soon.

  4. All I can say is that I hope Haven ends up with Lucian! This excerpt makes me even more excited!

    Annie :)

  5. Sounds fantastic, and really sweet! :)

  6. Yikes, I'm totally Team Lance :) But this quote still sounds so good!

  7. I have my copy of illuminate on it's way to me now! So excited!

  8. I absolutely loved Illuminate and cant wait for this come out. Hope the author doesn't fall under the second book spell!

  9. I'm not usually a judge-by-the-cover kind of person, but would you just look at that? I honestly didn't get tingly vibes from the quote, but I want to read Infatuate so much!
