  6. Aaah you got the new Harry Potter set!! I'm green with envy :x What an amazing haul! I just recently finished Gone Girl and I really liked it, though it wasn't a "nice" book. Before I Fall is one of my favorites and Fire & Thorns series is pretty good. Enjoy all of these! :)

  9. SO MANY BOOKS! I got the Harry Potter boxed set a couple months ago and I love it, it's sooo pretty. And I need to read Anna and the French Kiss, too. I didn't realize how big that one was, though! It looks fat in your picture.
