  2. I'm super excited for Vivian Divine Is Dead! It sounds like it's going to be brilliant!
    I love the sound of Running on Empty! Wow! Definitely going to have to get myself that one. I've been meaning to start the Article 5 series for such a long time!
    Great haul! Happy reading :)

    1. I own the first two in the Article 5 series so getting this book is my motivation to start it! I have heard a couple people talk about Vivian Divine is Dead so I caved and got it. lol

  3. Enjoy Three! I have the first two books, haven't gotten to them yet. I really want to read Running on Empty! Nice haul!

    1. Running on Empty looks really good! Thanks!

  4. Ever since I saw the cover for Vivian Divine is Dead it got me super excited. Lol. Hope you enjoy it!
    I've also had Article 5 sitting on my shelf forever. It's supposed to be a really good dystopian. Hope you enjoy it as well.
    Great haul Laura!

  5. I really need to start the Article 5 series, I do love my dystopias. Vivian Divine looks really good too, love that cover.

  8. I liked The Dark. It was cute and really creepy (but basically if it has Lemony Snicket's name on, well, Daniel Handler, I want to try it. XD). Happy reading! My StS!

  9. Nice group of books, Laura. Vivian Divine is Dead looks particularly appealing to me. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  10. Vivian Divine is dead sounds and looks brilliant! I will have to check it out! Great haul, enjoy :)

  11. All these books are new to me but I've heard of Lemony Snicket. Been planning to read his Unfortunate events series for a long time now. And Vivian seems really creepy.

    Never heard about this book, Michelle. But I guess this one would suit me because I am a book geek and I think I can really relate to the author's geeky tips. Hahahaha.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS.
