  1. I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

    P.S.- My release date if Friday the 13th (August this year) isn't that crazy?

  2. So many of those are on my reading list as well :) #5 and #9 are my favorite of those I've read on the list so far, and I've heard phantasmagorical things about #8. I can't wait to get my hands on The DUFF!

  3. A lot of these are on my TBR list... so far I've only read the first one, but I can't wait to read #8 and #11. Happy reading!
