    Splintered is mesmerizing. Literally. When it arrived I just sat there staring at it like an idiot for like 5 minutes!

    I have high hopes for Salvation – it looks like it could be pretty great! I definitely bought Perfect Ruin like 90% because of the cover, even though I've heard mixed things about it. It's just that pretty!

    Isn't it? I'll freely admit that I bought it solely for the cover!

    Also just FYI – I tried to comment on your blog, but it won't let me without linking to my G+ account, and I couldn't even find any way to contact you on your site. I'm not comfortable linking to my G+ when I comment, so I can't leave any notes on your blog! 🙁 Not sure if you were aware of this or not, but you might be losing out on interaction because people don't want to use their full name or don't want to integrate with their G+. Just a bit of reader feedback! 🙂
