  1. Oh, Noelle, Gone, Gone, Gone is such a gentle and beautiful story. I really hope you enjoy it. I haven't read Amy & Roger, but Lisa did a while back. I can't remember her rating, though, my memory isn't what it used to be, you know... back when I was young.

    Maggie, does everyone have a copy of A Straight Line to My Heart? *cries* I want that book so badly! I'm excited to hear what you think.

    1. I can't wait to read it Maja! And shoot I can't even remember what I rated a book after a 6 month window or so haha. (Unless it's a five star of course!) --N

  2. NOELLE! I'm reading Gone, Gone, Gone too. I can't wait to hear what you think of it so I can copy you and agree with everything you say. ;)

    MAGGIE! The cover of A Straight Line to My Heart is so gorgeous.


    1. JO! Technically Gone, Gone, Gone is not in my greedy lil hands just yet but I put in a purchase request from the library and got the okay so I put it on here in my excitement. Can't wait to hear what you think! I'm really looking forward to reading it. --N

  3. Howl was robbed.

    That's all I have to say.

    Happy weekend!

    1. Good looking out Catie! Hope you had a happy Mother's Day :D --N

  4. I love the series bible post, so organised! And thanks for the link to Jessi chatting with Jennifer!

    As always, all of the books your both reading look great! Noelle, I got Gone, gone, gone this week, looking forward to reading it!

    1. Wheee! We'll all be reading Gone, Gone, Gone around the same time it seems! I can't wait for it to arrive. --N

  5. I just finished Insurgent and it's pretty good but I didn't love it as much as I did book 1. I've heard great things about Gone Gone Gone I really want to read that one!

    1. I've been so unmotivated to read Insurgent. It's just been sitting on my Kindle. Maybe I'll just grab an americano and power through it at Starbucks. -M

  6. Gambit from X-Men and Aladdin! Yes please I totally would have added Wolverine too! And you're upcoming books to read sounds awesome! Looking forward to your thoughts on them! :)

    1. Oh hell yes on Gambit and Wolverine, Jasprit! Great choices! --N
