    I Purchased Never Never too – and I am not sure how much I am gonna like it, tbh. :/

    I loved your post about ARCs – it actually sparked an idea for a post I have been thinking about posting 🙂

    ANd thank you for the shout out!

      Oh, I hope you do like it! I just assume I’ll like it because – well … Hoover – but who knows? Glad I could spark an idea for a discussion post!! I love when that happens! And you’re very welcome for the shout out – gotta spread the love for my fellow bloggers! 🙂

    • Nicole

      You’re welcome! For the past couple of weeks I didn’t mention specific posts because it felt like playing favorites or something. LOL! After all, I love all of my discussion post participants. But then I thought it makes sense to feature a few each week and get people even more interested in checking them out. So glad you’ve been participating!

    I really liked Never Never & when I found out they hid clues all throughout the book, I fell in love. It’s REALLY hard waiting on the second book, though! I so want to read Wicked, but I’m trying to finish her Lux series right now. I am sooo loving it!

      It seemed good to me, but now I’m already seeing some so-so reviews (or at least initial thoughts). Darn! We shall see!

    Good luck with Seeker 😉 I am looking forward to your thoughts on Never Never, I have heard a few mixed things so I plan on waiting for a few more trusted reviews! And I mean, I am kind of excited for your thoughts on Seeker too, but in a “did you hate that as much as I did?” way, so that isn’t nice. Maybe you’ll like it though, there were actually some decent reviews for it. And hey, if you DO like it, you can explain what exactly was going on to me! Hope you enjoy the books, and have a great week 🙂

      I saw your update on Goodreads for Seeker that said something like, “Eh, I might as well finish it,” and I thought, Oh, Noooooooo! I have so many good options for ARCs, why did I choose this one?” Oh well. Like you said, maybe I’ll be one of the people who really ends up liking it.

    • Nicole

      That’s the hardest thing to do – read a book by an author you have a relationship with. You SO want to like the book, and it’s a little nerve-wracking! Hope you love it!

  4. Carmel @ Rabid Reads

    I have my own theories with regards to insta-love, however different opinions are always welcome, so I’ll check-in later this week to read your thoughts. I’ve been meaning to get back into JLA’s writing, and Wicked is first in line. Hopefully your review will post before I get around to it, so I’ll know what I’m in for.

    • Nicole

      Yes, well, obviously when I say that I know, it’s a bit of an exaggeration. But I have an idea about why some authors probably write insta-love based on my editing experiences. 🙂

    • Nicole

      I was on the fence a little bit about this one, but I saw that JLA posted on Twitter that it was on sale for $1.99 and I figured, “What the heck?” 🙂

  5. Edel @TheIrishBookworm

    Oh I am looking forward to what you think about Wicked and I am going to check out your review for Jackaby. To be honest it’s the cover of Jackaby that has me interested in it for awhile now. Seeker was one I was really interested in and then I started reading the reviews and I am not sure yet if I will pick that one up.

      Jackaby’s cover is so intriguing. I didn’t even realize it at first, but the more I looked at it, the more I loved it! I’m honestly not so sure about Seeker anymore either, but I requested it, so I’m reading it – hopefully it will work for me!

    I just popped back to your Ten Unread in 2014 post and I just bought Alienated! It was on sale this past weekend and looked interesting. I hope I get a chance to read it soon. I also believe in good web design (my background from the years at HBO.com) and just updated my website again. Always gotta make sure it loads fast and looks good on a mobile phone!

      Ooh! I’ll have to go check out the new design! (I never really think about mobile for my blog – I wonder how mine looks … hmmm).

    • Nicole

      Yeah, I’ve heard that Never Never is very interesting – and very strange. I might actually end up holding off on reading it until closer to the next book’s release, but now I have it!
