  1. The Mime Order was so good! It was even better than the Bone season.
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  2. I'm so nosy about people's books. Loved getting your answers on the getting to know you stuff. I am interested in a couple of those, too.

  3. My blog name is simple and straightforward too, so I feel you! I also really hope you get a chance to read The Mime Order. It's really great, and I definitely think it made the world Samantha Shannon created even bigger and better! Thanks for joining the Love-a-Thon, and hope you're having fun :D
