Been There, Read That (1)

BEEN THERE, READ THAT is new feature I've created to spotlight up-and-coming pre-releases that might not have made it onto your radar yet. BEEN THERE, READ THAT was inspired by Lauren (365 Days of Reading), and her Picks of the Week, and Tara (Hobbitsies), and her Early Buzz posts.

Awwww Asher, I LOVE THIS NEW FEATURE! And your awesome vlog! ♥ I was like : 'OMG, I'm finally meeting this awesome girl again who always excites me! ;)'

I absolutely can't wait for Destined too! I haven't actually read the 3rd book (is it Illusion?) but so far, I AM ABSOLUTELY TEAM TAMANI! I definitely need to read the 3rd book before the final book comes out!

AND YAY! I am so glad you love Ascend! I totally agree with you, Switched was okay, I didn't quite get the hype about the first book but Torn was SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING and GOOD! Loki ♥ And wow, you loved the 3rd book even more? I can't wait to get it!!!

Definitely can't wait for the next 'Been There Read That'! ♥

Keep rocking, Asher! ;) ♥

Well someone's in love with Loki. ;) Hehehe. 

I loved hearing your thoughts! I completely agree with you about Wendy and her character development. She was so different by the third book and I actually grew to like her after she bothered me a little in Switched. 

I love this feature! And you're good at it too! :D

YAY. I'm so happy that you do, Celine <33 And I'm also glad to know that my presence is so stimulating and entertaining for you, because THAT'S WHAT I'M HERE FOR XD

Yes, the third book is Illusions. And it definitely leaves you hanging by your thumbs with the cliffhanger. TEAM TAMANI FOR THE FREAKING WIN. Love him SO HARD. And yes, you need to read the third one because Laurel finally begins to HEAD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, romantically speaking. *wink-wink*

Boo for Switched AND HOORAY for the rest of the books. Just saw your review of Torn and, as I said, you WILL ADORE Ascend. Loki FTW.

And it'll be here in two weeks, the next one, so it's a relief to hear that you're excited for the next installment of this new feature. I was a little nervous about doing something like this, so I'm REALLY HAPPY.

And, trust me, I WILL.

 YOU BETCHA. So take that, you Finn lover. :P

Oh, really? I'm so glad. I was so nervous about doing a feature like this, because you're basically hearing me talk and talk, but it's much the same as a reading a review, I figure. Glad you enjoyed it. Her bothersome ways totally escaped the third book and I was really impressed by her.

Thanks so much, Sam! <333

Ohh, I love this! It always has me even more excited for books and it's especially fun with those who aren't the biggies that gets the most focus. :D I hope you'll continue with it!

I can't wait to start Switch! I'll remember to keep going even if the first one isn't quite for me too. ;) I need to get to that 3rd one :o :o :o 

Btw, I love your vlog! You're awesome at making me just as excited. :D

 That's what I want to do. I want to talk about books that are really popular as much as the ones that haven't been snagging much limelight for themselves. Whatever interests me or books that I notice people don't know about but SHOULD. I'm definitely planning to (continue with this feature)!

Yes, even if the third one turns you off, don't give up on the series. It's worth it.

And THANKS <33 I'm glad that my vlog is doing it's job! I want you to be excited about these books!
