I have recently read Angelfall too. I liked it, but not as much as I hoped I would. I loved Cinder and Scarlet. I hope that you enjoy your books! My STS post is here:

Angelfall was definitely one of my favourite books I've read this year, I can't wait for the sequel! I've heard great things about Cinder so I look forward to reading it :)

Estelle said...[Reply]

Thanks! Just followed back :)
I have so many ebooks as well that I've yet to read, and my print TBR books take priority haha.

I enjoyed the Grisha series :) The ending of Siege and Storm left me literally DYING omg

You bought some awesome books. I LOVE Cinder and Scarlet, and I've been meaning to read Shadow and Bone for ages. I hope you enjoy all your goodies and happy reading :)

Estelle said...[Reply]

Well I'm just the opposite! I really look forward to reading Cinder, can't wait for my exams to be over...
Thanks! Hope you enjoy S&B too :)

I enjoyed S&B as it was quite an entertaining story! At least read it for The Darkling if nothing else :)

Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for commenting!

I loved those two books, but I would say Angelfall is the better one if I had to choose haha. Hope you enjoy them!

Chapter by Chapter

Estelle said...[Reply]

Yes, I was very fortunate for the voucher, otherwise I would have received less than half of the books here haha. I've heard great things about The Piper's Son so I hope you'll enjoy it :) Thanks for stopping by!

Estelle said...[Reply]

The blurb for the Farm is really intriguing :) I definitely can't wait to read it! Thanks for commenting

Jay Riv said...[Reply]

Angelfall and Shadow & Bone are both on by to-read list. Hope they are good for you!
Here are my newest additions.

Estelle said...[Reply]

I don't think you can go wrong with either of them, I definitely wouldrecommend those two books. Thanks for commenting!

Estelle said...[Reply]

Yeah, I was so happy when I received it :) However the prices at the bookstore were quite expensive, although I'm glad to finally have the books that I'm dying to read. Thanks for commenting!

Cinder and Scarlet are both so good. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts. Angelfall is one of my favourite books. Hope you enjoy it.

Happy reading!
