The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able look into her own. And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare. Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future...If she even has one.

Lol, I'm getting tired of saying great finds every week, but it's true! Insatiable changed covers, and Burned finally has a gorgeous cover (as per usual to the House of Night series)! As for After We Kiss, it looks extremely cute, and The Prophecy looks interesting. Thanks for sharing! :D

Side note, about the affiliate thing, that sounds awesome! I don't have any affiliate thing set up yet and I'm not sure exactly how it works, but I would love to be affiliates once it gets up and running. What exactly does an affiliate entail? (sorry for idiotic question, haha) P:
