In My Mailbox [16] & What Am I Reading?

No books this week, still sticking to my book ban!

Just finished
and now on

ohhh, y'betcha! It'll be 1 week on Tuesday. I know you all are just PUMPED.

Okay everyone please help me out: I just finished The Replacement, but the book isn't scheduled to be released until September 21, which is over a month away. Should I go ahead and post a review this week or wait until closer to the release date?

Here's what some of you said about Gone:

"Gone is good, not AMAZING but good, there's A LOT of gore though, let me warn you. and there's twice as much gore in Hunger."
- The Critic

"A fast-paced thriller with intriguing characters and some kick ass fight sequences."
- Cara, Chasing Words

"A modern take on Lord of the Flies. At turns it creeped me out, made me tense and even made me angry but definitely kept me intrigued."
- Lesa, Cozy Book Nook

Of course I'm going to say that you should post the review of The Replacement this week instead of later -- but that's mostly due to the fact that I really want an honest opinion about what to expect from this book. I trust that would come from you, definitely. :) (Yes, selfish reason, I guess. :P)

And YAY for Mockingjay. Can't wait to read it!!

(By the way, I personally loved GONE -- though I have to say the sequels are even better than the first. If you can get past the sometimes disjointed writing, then you should be able to enjoy them.)

I cannot wait for Mockingjay...I'm hoping my copy will come very quickly once it releases!

Hope you like Gone, I've heard it's great :)

MOCKINGJAAAAY~ *hyperventilates* No, no, gotta calm down.

Ahem, anyway, awesome books! About The Replacement, write up the review now- personally, I'm really curious about it.

Anyway, great books!

It's good that you are staying on your book ban...I could never do that! But thanks for swinging by my blog :) I hadn't realized that Halo was so long either until I received it...oh well. I've heard good things about it! I too cannot wait to get Mockingjay! I'm planning on staying up all night to finish it!

I can't wait to read your review of The Replacement whenever you decide to post it. Sometimes it is good to generate a little early buzz and since it is mid-August you could post it now if you wanted.

I am looking forward to reading Mockingjay. I was planning to reread The Hunger Games and Catching Fire but it hasn't happened. I remember when Deathly Hallows came out and I spent the months before it rereading the other books in the series. I was still finishing up Half Blood Prince when DH was released and forced myself to complete that book first. Happy memories :)

I hope my copy of Mockingjay comes soon *fingers crossed*
