  1. Let's face it, Giselle is AMAZEBEANS and we all know it, feel it, embrace it. It's always nice to see someone admit it aloud. She is the good coffee to my chocolate chip muffin.

    And DUDE. If your MoE (Moment of Exuberance) is any indication, I'm starting to think I'm missing out after jumping off the Covenant series bandwagon. Perhaps... I should be more cautious in my choices for next time and maybe continue the series? Happy reading, lady!

    1. Giselle totally rocks my face off!! I love that chick!!! It's too bad the Covenant series wasn't doing it for you. I love it. I am kind of obsessed. Then there are other series that everyone else seems to love that I couldn't get into so I understand. Love your reference to Giselle as good coffee to your muffin lol!!!

  2. Eep, loving all the excitement Amy! :D After seeing all your happiness for getting Apollyon... maybe I should start the series? It's pretty amazing to see that I haven't started it yet, after all the excitement JLA has been getting! I'll have to get a copy of Half-Blood soon though, and see what all this excitement is about. Also, I'm really curious to see what you think of The S-Word! It seems pretty emotional, yet I'm not sure if it's for me. I'll be keeping an eye out for your review.

    Fantastic haul, Amy! Enjoy all your lovelies. <3

    1. I am really looking forward to reading The S Word too. It doesn't come out until May, so I won't be reading it for probably 2 months or so. I think you would like the Covenant series judging by the books you tend to like.

  3. The only one of these that I have read is 'the s word' and I wasn't the biggest fan! Hope you like it more than I did!

  4. I have The S Word on my haul this week as well and I haven't read Apollyon but I am so sure to at some point... is that in the series with Half Blood? I Have Half Blood on my TBR :)I didn't enjoy Pure so Fuse doesn't really interest me... hope you enjoy them all though!

    1. Stung does sound really awesome!! I am dying to read Apollyon, but I am trying to have willpower. It's not out until April and I can't post the review until mid Feb. at the earliest, so I am waiting a little while.

  7. OMG How freaking excited are you for Fuse! I can't wait to read it, Pure was by far my favorite dystopian of last year, I loved that book so hard. Yay for The Ruining, Giselle rocks! The S Word sounds really good! Great haul chick!

  10. Oh yay, you got Stung, too! Can't wait to start that one! And I got Pure this week, can't wait to start it. *goes to request Fuse on NG, just in case* And I can't wait to see what you think of The Ruining - it sounds AWESOME. Great haul, girl!

    1. Even though the cover of Stung freaks me out, it sounds so awesome!! And OMG I hope you love Pure. It is awesome! It's not like every other dystopian out there. It's gritty and dark and awesome!!

  11. I didn't know Stung was up on NG. I went to look and saw that it was Bloomsbury and decided I had better not click that button. They declined my last request and I think it might have something to do with the fact that I have two books of theirs that I still need to read. So I'll do that before I request Stung. But I really want to read it. Waiting sucks! Great haul, Amy!

    1. Haha!! I have a few of their books that are unread, but it's still before publish date, so it's all good. Stung sounds awesome!!

  15. OMG AMY! READ APOLLYON *whispers* I'm reading it right now ;P I've been eye raping the cover. Just saying. Even though that sounds TOTALLY wrong. IT'S OKAY. JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE COVER.

    And because I'm just....ME, the weirdest thing I thought while watching your vlog:

    ARE YOU IN A SWIVEL CHAIR?!?!

    AHHHH LOVE IT.

    And Giselle is EPIC SAUCE. Amyboo? I think I died when I heard that! And my dad's next to me so he's giving me the WTF look again. O_O (that's the tenth time in a while...IT ALL STARTED WITH LOSING IT)

    Yay for Fuse! It does sound awesome! I still have to read Pure lol >.< The cover is SO pretty I should probably get it soon...

    BUT WHO CAN RESIST COFFEE? COFFEE IS EPIC.

    Also, I love how you mentioned me in the middle! :D *replays over and over*

    1. Seriously, those are like the most random search terms ever. I had no clue about most of them. Usually only one or two will stump me.

  18. Apollyon!!! I just read the entire series so I'm a new fan and can't wait. I am very angry though about my cuddle bunny Seth. I just hope he comes around. Alex was so weird in Elixir. Oooohhhhhhhh Stung is on Netgalley?!?! It was one of my WOWs and I'm going to try to hold myself back from requesting it!
