  2. I always love your hauls! :) You have some great books there. I recently got The farm too and it sounds so good. I can't wait to read Mila 2.0 and I need to get started in Partials. I haven't heard of Rivals before, but it looks interesting. I can't wait to see what you think.

    Happy reading!
    Haul from Mel@thedailyprophecy.

  10. Holy epic haul! I really want to read The Hunt to see for myself with that one, I have read so many bad reviews for it but some people seem to have really enjoyed it. It sounds so unique, I hope you like the sequel!

    1. I really liked The Hunt, because it was so freaky! I liked that Fukuda also put his own spin on the whole zombie thing.

  11. Apparently Me Before You is a big tearjerker, Kat! :) I'm also looking forward to your thoughts on The Farm. Most people liked it, but I had my reservations. Enjoy all!

    1. The more I hear about it, the more scared I am about Me Before You!

      I'm not going to build up The Farm too much in my mind, I just want to get stuck in and see for myself!

  12. Mila 2.o and The Farm are on my wishlist. I own Partials but haven't read it yet. Hopefully I get to it soon so I can get the sequel!

    Here's my Showcase Sunday!

  14. Me Before You is SO good. Prepare for tears, though! I think you'll enjoy The Farm and would recommend not looking at my review for The Prey.

    I hope you like Mila and Fragments!

    1. I saw the beginning of your review for The Prey, and bookmarked it for later comparison.

      Can't wait for both Mila and Fragments.
