Small Review



  1. I love that you wore a mask, very nice! And you got some great deals on books, woo!

  2. I love Adele Griffin! Hope you like her novel. :) I've heard amazing things about The Naughty List and Grave Mercy. You're so lucky to get them!

    Here's my In my Mailbox post. Drop by if you like!

  3. That was a good vid! I really liked the mask too hehe :) You got awesome books, I wish all my bookstores had sales like those lol. The only big sale was Borders lol.
    Happy reading and Easter!

  5. Yay for vlogs - I did my first one for this week's IMM too :) Love the idea with the mask!

    I hadn't heard of Sophomore Switch, but it sounds great - I'm always looking for more new adult books, so I'm adding it to my wishlist :)

  6. I haven't heard of most of your books, so enjoy them all! Ah, you remind me that I need to catch up on my PRINCESS DIARIES! I would recommend reading GOOSE GIRL before RIVER SECRETS if you haven't done so. And I can't remember if ENNA BURNING is before or after RIVER SECRETS. Love Shannon Hale, though! And GRAVE MERCY, yay, soooo good. Enjoy!

  7. Great list of books! I really want to read Grave Mercy and Clarity - will be interested to see what you think :)

    My IMM if you have a moment to stop by:

    Happy Easter & Happy Reading,
    Patricia // My IMM

  9. Your Venetian mask is gorgeous! I have one from my trip to Italy a few years back, and I just think they're so precious. I have Grave Mercy for review as well, and I'm excited to finally get into it. Great haul!

  12. Nice list of books this week. I really love the Vampire Academy series. I thought it would be another vampire book but it was really entertaining.
    Happy reading,

  13. Awesome vlog Danya!! It's hard to believe it's your first one, I'd love to see you make more in the future. love the mask! I hope I can get a chance to visit BOok Warehouse before it closes down... Oooh and God is In the Pancakes! Definitely underappreciated gem, I hope you like it!

    1. Thanks, Audrey!! Hopefully this will be the first vlog of many :)

      Not sure when the last Book Warehouse location shuts down but I know one of them is closing in May... :(

  14. Just dropping by to say that your vlog was amazing and so is your mask!

  15. Nice mask! Your hair is gorgeous :)

    Thank you for the mention! I hope you love Where I Want to Be. I'm not even an issues book lover and I loved that book. Adele has such a way with words.

    Oh my, Grave Mercy IS huge! I didn't realize how big it is (the ARC I read is all funny shaped like a big square, so it looks less thick). It's SO good though! I was wishing there were more pages :P

    1. Awww, thanks Small!

      I enjoyed both Tighter and Picture the Dead, and this one sounds very psychological, so chances are I will like it too :) Hopefully I'll get to read it for Psychtember this year!

      I know, Grave Mercy is ginormous. Kind of daunting, actually! O_O

  16. Thanks to everyone for all the positive comments on my first vlog! :)


I love comments, so post away!
