  1. I went to look up Dead Girl's Society because it totally sounds like something up my alley, and I am disappointed that the reviews are lackluster :( I am still gonna add it to my TBR list! I added Wax to my list, too :)

  7. I've seen Heartless a lot this week. I'm definitely adding it to my TBR list. I also like the look and sound of The Dead Girl's Society so I'll probably take a closer look. Thanks for sharing your titles and enjoy your week!
