  1. What!! There's a bound version of the Delirium stories? How very cool! :) Also got some great sequels for review! (I definitely still need to get to the first books of those ones first!)

  4. OMG---I want Dare You To SOOOOO BAD! I requested it from the Aussie one too, but got declined. :( But Katie said the US galley's will be up soon. *crosses fingers*

    1. I was just going to wait for the US one to go up since I'm auto approved through them and the UK declined me, but someone asked if I had tried the AUS pub so I decided to give it a shot and they approved me the same day.

  5. Wow what an epic package from HarperCollins! I like that set that is coming out of the Delirium novellas, such a great idea to put them all together like that. I've only read Hana I still need to read Anabelle and of course Raven. Fabulous haul chickie!

    1. Right?! It was such an awesome surprise. I like that they packaged all the stories together in a print version too. Some people don't have ereaders and it's great that they can read the stories now.

  6. I really want to read Dare You To and Of Triton, but still haven't rad the first book in those series. Looks like you got some great goodies. Enjoy !

    1. I loved Pushing the Limits! Dare You To is a companion novel so you don't have to have read the first one. I didn't love Of Poseidon, but I liked it enough to want to continue the series so hopefully I like Of Triton better.

  7. Definitely jealous of Dare You To!!! Enjoy.

  9. The cover for Of Triton is GORGEOUS. I haven't read Of Poseidon (and I don't plan to, unfortunately), but the covers for that series are really breathtaking. Also, that's so cool you got a surprise package from HarperTeen! I can't wait to see what you think of Spellcaster. Will definitely be getting that one on Tuesday.

I can't wait to read Dare You To!! I hope I like Of Triton, I liked Of Poseidon, but didn't love it. I liked it enough to continue the series though.

  15. LOVED Dare You To! More than Pushing the Limits! I just saw your Sky On Fire from Netgalley so I went straight there and requested it! There goes my self control again! I read Hana but still need to read Annabel and Raven. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Haha! Seriously, I have no self control when it comes to books that I am dying to read.

  16. Dare You To! I'm so excited about that one, and sad that I probably won't get to it, because, though I did manage to grab an egalley, it's all I can do to stay on top of print copies. Oh well.

    I really need to read some of Rhiannon Frater's traditional creepy stuff. I liked the YA one, but I think the others are more my speed. Hope you love!

  17. Nice package! Harper is the one of the nicest pubs to work with. Awesome. Looking forward to reading your thoughts :)

  18. Yay you got Dare You To! I think we were the only bloggers who hadn’t gotten it yet. Ah, I can’t wait to read it!!!
    Of Triton looks really good but I haven’t read the first book yet.
    I almost forgot all about Spellcaster.
    Wait For You was good but kind of the same as most NA books I’ve read. Cam was awesome though. Loved him :)
