    Ohh, the boxed set looks absolutely gorgeous! I have them all already so no set for me, but it bugs me that they're not all the same size. It's actually killing me. For whatever reason, Feed is somewhat smaller than Deadline and Blackout and it doesn't look nice on my shelf. 🙂 I'm disgustingly pedantic

    Oh that's strange! I wonder why they did that… that would totally bug me too. The box set is quite pretty I almost wanted to leave the plastic on but I'm really thinking about a re-read so off it came. 😀

  3. Whoa, awesome haul this week, Bonnie! I've heard absolutely amazing things about the Feed series (I think it's called something with Flesh, actually, but I'm too lazy to check), so I hope you like it! I plan on reading them soon, but right now I have to make my way through a few dystopians, then in December I'll have to go through all the ARCs I neglected this month because of the dystopians. 😉 I also hope you like Insignia! I've heard good things but still can't decide whether it's for me or not.

  4. Yay for us both getting Hooked! *high five* I hope we both love it. 🙂 And OMG you are going to LOOOVE Insignia!! It's one of my favourite books from 2012. It's like Harry Potter for tech/gaming nerds!

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog. 🙂

    Ooh glad to see Pantomime made it into your haul too. 🙂 I really enjoyed Insignia, even though it is probably aimed at a younger audience that what I am used to. I hope you like it! Anna Karenina is a classic I have wanted to read for a while. I'm looking forward to your thoughts!

    Lots of goodies and yet I have read non of them yet. 🙁 I do have a copy of Insignia I've been dying to crack open though! Enjoy! 🙂
