  1. I am so glad I caught this TTT. I just bought The Last One on sale for kindle! I really liked Station Eleven and your review… I feel like I got a steal on it.

    How did I miss that Isaac Marion had a new Warm Bodies book? I’ll have to look into that in 2017. I really liked his first one but it’s been so long! Definitely have to reread that one first.

    I feel like such a HPfailure because I have yet to read Cursed Child or even buy Fantastic Beasts! I just… am having conflicted feelings about the former and the latter’s movie… bored me. SSSSH. Don’t tell; they’ll shun me.

    Everyone I know that has read The Thief of Always recs it. Hmm. Added to the TBR.

    I liked Empire of Storms, but it’s probably my second-least favorite of the series. Hahaha does that even make sense? Only ToG was worse, to me.

    Sleeping Giants! I am so so intrigued by this one that I have been avoiding reviews in case of spoilers or so I can review it. It sounds awesome.

    LUCY AND JOSH 5EVAAAA great pick I could not agree more.

    Very extensive and fun list! 🙂

    • Annnnddd I bought Station Eleven and still need to read it. lol Thanks for the reminder. 😉

      The New Hunger is like this short little novella that was incredibly well-written. Lacks the humor of Warm Bodies but was seriously excellent.

      A-ha! We are like-minded individuals! (I was also quite bored by the movie. It was far too long and I don’t think I was supposed to be more intrigued by the animals than the people but I was.)

      Thief of Always was my first Clive Barker and I have no idea why I waited so long to read his works. Thief is much tamer than his crazy horror ones though.

      Empire of Storms wasn’t the best, I’ll admit, but I fear I read those in rose colored glasses at this point and I’m quite possibly blinded by lust. lol
