Have you guys read ANY of these books? If so, share your thoughts with me below! Also, leave your own STS links so I can visit and spread the love =).


  1. The Archived was AMAZING. I love Schwab's writing, plus the plot/world-building were so unique and creative.

    I also LOVED Anna Dressed in Blood - it felt a little Buffy mixed with Supernatural. I thought it was a great combo.

    I just read The Selection a little while ago, and while it wasn't my favorite, it was a fun, cute read. I can't wait for The Elite to come out.

    Happy reading :)

  3. Oh man -- Anna Dressed in Blood was AWESOME! And I really enjoyed The Virgin Cure as well; especially the character of the doctor. I've also heard many fab things about The Archived. Enjoy all your books!

    1. NICE! I totally trust your taste now that we've bonded over Mister Gaiman lol, so now I'm even more excited to read both of those! And yeah, I don't even WANT to touch my copy of The

      Don't even know where to start with all of these books *sigh*
