The Nightmare Dilemma by Mindee Arnett
In the mail:
A mockingjay pin! Finally!
So, after I got home from YALLfest I started kicking myself for not just buying all three books (I only got Insurgent). What if one day Veronica is untouchable, and her books go for $200+ EACH (like The Hunger Games)? Then I will hate myself for not getting one when I had the chance! I paid $50 for the two of them…which is ridiculous, but I think it will be worth it someday! (They probably still have some left if you want one!)
- Leanne @ Literary Excursion tells us what her gateway book to YA was
- Asti @ A Bookish Heart made this totally awesome compilation of blogger spotlights
- Octavia @ Read.Sleep.Repeat. tells us what makes her keep it up
It’s the second week of Life of a Blogger! I’ve got a small handful of participants, but I’d love for more people to participate ;)
Also, the 2014 Sequel Challenge sign-ups are open – I’ve adopted a co-host & we’ve revamped the challenge! Check it out!
Back to work in cold, lame Ohio :( I already miss Florida and the warmth terribly!!
What’s in your mailbox, loverlies? Link me up!
Oh my gosh, wait…did you pay $50 EACH or $50 total?? That’s insane! And wow I had no idea that Collins’ books go for so much. I’d love to have signed versions, but I definitely couldn’t justify spending that much :(
$50 total. I’d have never paid that for each of them! Especially not knowing if I’d even like them. Yeah, it’s insane! She’d probably get mobbed if she ever did a signing now….
OMG you got a pin! I need one >,<
Happy reading, Jessi! <33
UGH I know what you mean! I made that mistake with George R R Martin. I got some of my books signed by him but I DIDN’T get him to sign my ARC of Game of Thrones. Why the hell not? I have no idea, I had a weird moment. So now it’s like my lifetime goal to go find him at another signing to get him to sign it. I don’t even like the books… I just want to complete my signed collection lol.
Anyway, I really can’t wait to read your reviews for those!
Those will probably be worth something someday, too! And I know what you mean about having a completed collection, I had Prodigy by Marie Lu signed but bought Legend later. It drove me crazy! Thankfully I was able to see her again at YALLfest…but now I’m missing Champion because they were sold out! Grr…
The Nightmare Dilemma sounds amazing. And you got a pin! <3 I just saw Catching Fire; I'm so excited for Mockingjay to come out. I've heard its being released in two parts, though.
Happy reading! :)
Yep! I think part one comes out next year :)
I suspect that 2014 might just be the year that I read something by Veronica Roth. Perhaps I will be obsessed afterwards. Who knows?
Enjoy your goodies…and here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES
I just binge-bought (is that what you call it? Probably) three books: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor, and signed limited edition hardcover copies of Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster. I wish I could say I’m sorry about it but…
I wish I could say I’ve read Allegiant, but I haven’t. I have it on hold at the library but there are about 200 something people in front of me.
Nice! Looove Laini Taylor’s books :)
Yeah, I was going to request the audio but the line was INSANE! There’s a crazy amount of people that want it, so I just bought it haha.
A pin? Aw, I want one! Have you seen the Catching Fire movie yet?
YES! It was freaking amazing!!
Love the pin !
Aw thanks for linking to my post as one of your favorites! :)
Your Mockingjay pin is pretty rad. I recently found this tutorial on how to make the mockingjay symbol out of chocolate to use as cupcake toppers (easy peasy stuff, but impressive-looking). I thought about sharing on Twitter but didn’t know how many people would actually use a tutorial like that!
Ohh that would be so awesome! I’d love to see how, even if I never make it :)

It’s super simple if you ever want to try it. Basically you just print out the design, tape some wax paper over, and draw it with melted chocolate or candy melts. :)
That’s awesome, thank you!!! <3
You’re welcome! You can do that with pretty much any design too, as long as it’s not too intricate.
