  2. hahaha, you just wait until you see all the Tamora Pierce I got this week. You'll laugh.

    I think you'll like All These Things I've Done - I really did!

    I have a copy of I Am Legend somewhere I need to read too.

  3. I haven't heard of many of these.

    All These Things I've Done has been on my wishlist for yonks though, coming from a G.Zevin fangirl.

    Extras is amazing, I love the whole series, but Extras is unique and fun :)

  4. Tamora Pierce... SO jealous. I loved those books. I can't seem to find a copy of Trickster's Queen anywhere around here! A student "borrowed" my copy and never returned it.

  5. oh, and Extras... ek. Didn't like that one.

  6. Yeah... Extras. I loved the first three books and I never finished Extras. I do like the new covers they're printing though. The ones with the faces always creeped me out. Just like the new printings of the LJ Smith books. The creepiest faces on those covers!

  7. What's with all the Extras hatin'? I agree with Jade, I liked it!

  8. Yay for Tamora Pierce! Also, I'm glad you mentioned Atonement being hit or miss, because it felt the same way for me. I don't remember how it ended but I remember disliking it.

    And I have to say, I actually like the new Uglies covers. Haven't read the books, but those covers are excellent.

  9. Funny, cause in the review that I'm writing for All These Things I've Done, I flat out said that I really wasn't comfortable calling it a dystopian.

    Looking forward to what you think about Underdogs! I had no idea that even existed.

    I've been wanting to read Tomorrow When the War Began as well but I haven't stumbled upon it yet.

  10. The "tomorrow when the war began" series is amazing !!!! The cover is pretty bad but don't let it keep you from reading the rest of the books. one of the best YA series I've ever read !!!

  11. Great books this week! Happy reading!

  12. Loving the sound of All These Things I've Done. I also found it strange that everybody seems to think of it as a dystopian. Hope you enjoy your new reads :-)

  17. ooooooh! I've been wanting
    All These Things I've Done since reading some good reviews of it. And I loved I Am Legend, though I read it many years ago. I remember there were a few slow parts, but it was still good.

    Hope you enjoy.

  18. So glad you said Extras was getting a new cover, I need to go out and buy it now before the new cover is out! It's the only one I don't have, my other books of his are signed so it will suck that Extras isn't but it's okay!

    Great IMM, mine is up as well.
