    I haven’t had the chance yet, but I’m definitely looking forward to reading Sweet Evil at some point. Another “rising star” book I’m looking forward to is Undeadly (The Reaper Diaries #1) by Michele Vail. November is too far away! D:

    I am most excited for Starters by Lissa Price because the concept sounds so intriguing and I love all things dystopian. Not to mention the cover of the book is sooo mesmerizing and I love it!
