  1. Love the title of the Sarah Mlynowski book!

  2. And congrats again on your wedding! Wedding cards are so pretty^_^

  3. If you think reading 3 books is small, don't look at mine! :(

  4. Awesome, Kristen! You're kind of very busy. This is where I would scream at you to READ, WOMAN, but I suppose you're busy enough.

  5. Don't feel bad, I only got three read this week too. It looks like you got some great books lined up for this week. Can't wait to read your thoughts on them.

  6. This comment has been removed by the author.

  7. I don't know why it posts the same things twice somtimes.

    Anyways, right now I am reading Intertwined by Gena Showalter.

  8. Looking forward to your thoughts on Shiver. That's on my list of books to get. And aside from books, looks like you have a great week ahead!

    Here's what I am reading this week.

    Happy Reading!

  9. I got so tired of the Sara Mlynowski series that I haven't kept up. But Shiver and Rampant are two that I'm looking forward too.

  10. Tell me what you think about Octavian! I want to read it!

  11. Another good week for you girl. Keep up the rythm!

  12. I can't wait to read your shiver and Ramptant reviews! You gotta finish reading them ^^

  13. Ooh you're reading Shiver. I can't wait for your review. I loved it!

  14. Oh and I can't wait to hear what you think of Troubadour. I haven't read any reviews of it yet but it sounds good. =]

  15. I'm looking forward to reading Shiver, too. I just have so many books waiting to be read right now! I really got behind this summer, with the kids home from school and so much going on. And I'm way, way behind on work (writing). Time to start catching up! I guess it's just the opposite for you - going back to work after being home for the summer. Enjoy your first week!!


  16. I'll be looking for your review of Rampant. I'm interested in that book!

  17. Such good books! You had a busy week last week. I can't wait to read Shiver and look forward to your review. Congrats on your wedding and hope you're enjoying the planning! :)

  18. Polls are awesome. Hurrah for Beautiful Creatures being a winner. I hope you read at least 20 books this month. Oh, and Shiver looks awesome, can't wait for your review -readingpressure-


Leave some love!
