Happy Release Day Wither!

Back in February I reviewed Lauren DeStefano's fabulous debut, Wither. Wither is out now, so be sure to check it out! And of course, come back and let me know what you think!:)


  1. Yeay! Got it today!! Somehow missed your review, though...going!!

  2. I finished it last week and really enjoyed it. I found Linden a lot like Ashley Wilkes -- sweet and completely out of touch.

  3. Okay, ordered this. If it's not sheer perfection, I'm coming after you.

  4. Colene-I hope you enjoy it!

    Caroline-Yes, totally! I do feel a bit of sympathy for him.,

    Jenny-Oh man, now I really hope you like it!:)

  5. Hello! I have been following your blog for a couple of months now. Being a library student, I love reading your posts and seeing what your are reviewing. While working at my library, I have started to seriously think about going into Youth Services, especially working with teens, and your blog has been very helpful. Keep on doin' what you're doin'! It's been truly a fantastic read.

  6. Such a fantastic book! LOVED it.
