    Author: Julianna Baggott Series: (Pure #1) Expected publication: February 8th 2012 by Grand Central Publishing Rating: I received an eARC from Grand Central Publishing via Netgalley. Thank you. I was surprised that I requested this one. But I’m more surprised that I was approved. I got this a title for quite some time but it is only now that I’ve got around to reading this book. Hate to admit, this is becoming a sad pattern since I was preoccupied with other—

    Features: Snap Shot

    Love books in print? Me too! As much as I love e-books because they’re convenient, I still prefer paper books. I love everything about it; front, back, spine and occasional freebies inside. They deserve some spotlight! :wow: Nothing beats the feel of a physical book. So here’s a meme where I appreciate the book’s entire aesthetic.

    Author: Cynthia Hand Series: (Unearthly #2) Published: January 17th 2012 by HarperCollins Publishers Rating: Wow. What a ride. I’m on an emotional rollercoaster right now.

    The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

    Author: Jennifer E. Smith Published: January 2nd 2012 by Poppy Rating: I’m a huge non-believer of love at first sight so I tried this one just to check if after I read this I’ll change my view about this whole falling in love with a stranger—a person you’ve just met. Guess what? It didn’t. Now, to break it to y’all, the book wasn’t entirely dreadful. There were fun, quirky parts but mostly are all too…I dunno, ok? (for the lack—

    Switched by Amanda Hocking

    Title: Switched Author: Amanda Hocking Series: (Trylle Trilogy #1) Published: January 3rd 2012 by St. Martin’s Griffin (first published July 12th 2010) Rating: I’m about to leave it with the word “decent” and move on. Because that’s pretty much describes this book. It was just that…decent. Not horrible but not really that entertaining. Readable but not that enjoyable. Besides, I managed to finish it so that says something positive…hopefully. What’s in this book that hasn’t done before? Nothing, really. I—
