Aeicha!! I love your Goodie Basket this week! I'm super jealous of Breaking Beautiful and Alice in Zombieland! I'm dying to read both. I haven't heard of Tracing Stars but the cover for it is stunning! I definitely need to look into that one. I can't wait for your review :)

I hope you enjoy all these awesome books! Happy reading!

I'm kind of dying of jealousy that you have Alice in Zombieland - I want to read that so badly! And have that cover in front of me so I can just stare all day, it's so gorgeous! And that's awesome that you won an annotated copy of Breaking Beautiful, all that 'behind-the-scenes' must be really cool! I actually just got that in from the library this week and am really excited to read it.

Happy reading :)

ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND?!

EXCUSE ME WHILE I FAINT.

I am a HUGE HUGE fan of Gena's Lords of the Underworld series but I haven't read any of her YA novels yet. I AM DYING for this one. I've been wanting to request an ARC but I can't find an general email to send a request to. I'm part of an ARC tour though so that will have to be enough. I JUST...GAH, Aiecha, happy happy reading of that and all your books. :D :D
