I've been seeing a lot of Eat, Brains, Love and The Infinite Moment of Us so I'm dying to see what people think about them soon! I have yet to read Anna and the French Kiss despite people constantly saying great things about it, but I think it's AMAZING that you found the signed copy of Lola & the Boy Next Door for so cheap! *drools* Enjoy your books and happy reading :)

You can check out my STS here if you'd like!

looking forward to your review of the infinite moment of us. I requested it from NG but apparently, got rejected. :D

Have fun reading your haul.

What a great haul! I am reading The Infinite Moment of Us right now and loving it. Come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

I have The Infinite Moment of Us as well, and have been slowly reading it. So far I'm sorta iffy on it, but we'll see.

And so jealous of the signed LOLA. :)

BABY AEICHA. She just keeps getting even MORE adorable! <3

Baby Aeicha is so adorable! Aww! She's such a cutie. Love her chubby cheeks!

The Infinite Moment of Us sounds like an emotional and intense read. I requested it on NG, but still haven't heard anything from the pub.
The Flame in the Mist also looks good. I need to get a copy when it comes out.

Enjoy your lovely books! :)
Happy Reading!

I'm so jealous of your signed copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door, especially since you bought it for that much! Cherish it for me please! ;D<3
Happy reading!
