  1. Ooooooh your post is so pretty!! *heart eyes* It’s so clean and lovely and the formatting… *more heart eyes* Also the GIFS, and The Lunar Chronicles love… #PerfectPostIsPerfect

  2. Hey! Great overview of your 2015 reads! Love the GIFs! I’m looking forward to reading Dreamology this year, too! And way to be crushing on Elias from Ember! 🙂 I saw your name on the list of linked posts – turns out it was actually YOU! ha! 🙂

  3. OMG! I loved Everything, Everything! I still can’t get over the super surprising twist about the mother! So good! I can’t wait for Nicola Yoon to write another book! Marissa Meyer is an author I just discovered this year too; I finally read Cinder and fell in love! I’m so excited to read the rest of the series! I’m still working on my End of Year Survey! I just love filling out questionnaires, etc., but I take forever to do them! LOL! Happy reading! 😀

    • Omg, I know!! I did not see that twist coming! I can’t wait for her to write another book either. I hope it’s told in emails/IM’s and drawings like this one was, because it was so fun!!
      Chelsea (MissyPrissy12) pestered me to read Marissa’s series, so I gave in and it’s so good!! I loved Scarlet and Cress more than Cinder (book pacing wise and characters). I’m going to start Winter soon, hopefully!
      It took me about 6 or 7 hours to fill out this survey haha.

  4. Wow Emmah, it looks like your year of reading and blogging was successful! My goal this year is actually to read 65 novels, so I guess we’ll see where that takes me, haha. Love your blog, by the way.. 🙂
