Borrowed (Library):
Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty
Split by Swati Avasthi
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

I cannot wait to dig into all these books! So excited!

What was in everyone's mailboxes this week?


  1. Aw, it seems like everyone got Clockwork Princess this week except me! I'm still waiting - incredibly impatiently - for it to arrive in the mail. Blah... I really hope you're loving it though, Courtney!! And I sincerely hope you love The Monstrumologist as much as I did because I am pretty crazy about that series and Rick Yancey's writing!!

    1. I hope so too! It's a crime that I haven't read it yet! I am really looking forward to reading some of his writing because I've heard good things. And I hope it comes soon! I used to preorder with Amazon, but now I preorder with Barnes and Noble and it came quicker but still not fast enough. I wanted it months ago. :P

  2. Ooh nice! I still need to read The Madness Underneath too! Among many 100s of other books!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. I just finished The Name of the Star and while it didn't quite meet my expectations, I still enjoyed it and intend to finish the series. I can't wait to read the sequel and find out where it's going next!


    I'm probably a little late on that! Sorry!

    Anyway, Split is AMAZING. Seriously, it's one of the best debuts I've read and I loved it. Second Helpings is a terrific follow-up to Sloppy Firsts although I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the first. The Disreputable History is a little slow, but once you get into it, it's SO GOOD. I really enjoyed that one as well.

    Unfortunately, I didn't like CP2. :/ I'm the only one, though, so I'm sure you'll love it!(: Great haul, Courtney! :D

    Also, I am SO HAPPY that you enjoyed Hawksong! Only a handful of my friends read it, so your comment got me really excited. Thanks!

    1. THANKS! And no, you're not late at all! :D I hope you had fun in DC btw!

      It's great to hear that you enjoyed so many of these books. I'm SO excited to read them all. And I actually saw Split on your blog and saw how you raved about it, and that got me interested so thank you!

      I have to say that I have not enjoyed The Clockwork Princess as much as I loved the rest of the series. But I'm only a little over halfway through. I wish had more time! Ahhhhh

      And Hawksong brings me back to high school. I was a big Amelia Atwater-Rhodes fan then, and I haven't read any of her books in awhile which is unfortunate. I will say that the rest of the series is not as good as Hawksong but you may like it more than I did. Can't wait to read your review! :)

  4. Great books, enjoy them all! I love your new design, btw :D


Courtney Reads A Lot loves comments a lot! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
