    I downloaded Reached on my kindle this week can’t wait to read it, think I might re-read the whole series. The cover for Poison puts me off reading it, it looks too much like the movie poster for Snow White and the Huntsman

      Poison’s cover really does look like SWATH, except for the cute enchanted pig :) Good idea to re-read the Matched series. Hope you enjoy Reached!

    I’m so excited about Decked with Holly! Loved Marni Bates first book and I think this one is going to be super cute too! You’ve got some great books to read; can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

    I have Poison too, which I am excited to read. I have read Decked with Holly, and it is cute, but I liked Awkward more (also by Marni Bates).

    Happy reading :)

    Oh goodness, they all look amazing. I’m really jealous! I keep meaning to read Ally Condie’s books and Decked with Holly seems to be really good. Hope you enjoy them! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
