Book Haul | Tinker Bell is Tiger Lily?

Good morning to all of you!

This month, I have a lot of lovely reads ahead of me. I actually already read Of Beast and Beauty, and will post the review soon, but the other books are very anticipated reads for me.

Have you already read any of the books in my haul? Which ones did you like, which ones did you dislike or hate? Is there a particular one I should read ahead of the others?

I feel like this is going to be an amazing reading month. *crossed fingers*
