Okay, now for some updates!
  • My bridal shower is Sunday! So fun!
  • I'm going to see Julia Hoban - author of Willow - on Saturday! YAY!
  • I discovered BookMooch and LOVE it - already got rid of 10 books!
Alright, now for some poll results! I asked what you guys wanted me to read for the comment contest and here's the results:

Anastasia's Secret - 23 votes!
Shrinking Violet - 23 votes!
The Maze Runner - 16 votes!
ghostgirl homecoming - 11 votes!
Bran Hambric - 8 votes!
War Games - 7 votes!
Watersmeet - 6 votes!
Troubadour - 6 votes!
Magician of Hoad - 2 votes!
Mirrorscape - 2 votes!

I'll probably do another poll after I read the top 4 and see what people want to see next!

I have a new poll up about what books I should buy next. Some I've read and don't own and some I still need to read. Please vote!

Right now, for the comment contest, I have the following books in the pot:
  • 2 copies of Crash Into Me
  • 1 copy of Dragon Spear
  • 1 copy of Benny & Shrimp
I promise I'll try to read more.. swear it!


  1. I loved Shiver, its waiting for me to review it.
    Bridal showers are fun. Have a blast!
    Do you have a link to your book mooch?
    This poll was much easier for me to answer than the new one you put up. Bran Hambric is out Wednesday & I can't wait to get it!
    The new poll you put up was hard to pick just one. I've read Eyes Like Stars, Fragile Eternity & the Mortal Instruments. I have Graceling waiting on my shelf. Evermore is on my to buy list.

  2. I want to change my list now, I forgot about Shiver - waahh!!
    Benny & Shrimp is on my wishlist.
    Happy reading :-)

    Here's my Monday post

  3. Shiver is waiting for me to read next but Karen Marie Moning's book is calling my name, too.

    Have a gr8 reading week.

  4. Ooh I can't wait for your review of Rampant. I really want to read it. Also, I am currently reading Hate List and it is amazing. If you have a copy you should read it soon. =]

  5. Oooh, those book look awesome! Looking forward to your review of Shiver and Rampant. :)

  6. Something tells me that I'm going to love your upcoming reviews!
    Enjoy your bridal shower!
    And please, go to read! =)

  7. I only read two books this week too(: Have fun seeing Julia Hoban! Author signings are always fun. Looking forward to your reviews!

  8. I have been reading a lot about Shiver. I am looking forward to your thoughts.

    And Yay on your bridal shower - how exciting!

    Here is what I am reading this week.

    Happy reading to you!

  9. Yay Book Mooch! It's pretty addicting, and sometimes there's not a great selection of books. Although I've lucked out a couple times and got things like Fight Club, and other books on my TBR.

    Can't wait to read your review of Benny & Shrimp!

  10. Reading two books is definately better than to have read no books this week. haha.

  11. I only read 2 books last week too. Intertwined by Gena Showalter and The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. It was a busy week.

    Looks like you have a busy week ahead with books to read. I can't wait to read your thoughts on Anastasia's Secret.

  12. Loved Shiver! Can't wait to hear your thoughts, and I just won Rampant. Can't wait to read that one.

  13. How can you read so many at once!! Have a fun bridal shower. Enjoy it, all the prewedding stuff goes so fast. Great poll, gave me some ideas for new titles.

  14. Ohh, Sarah weird because I'm reading her Girls Guide to Writing Chick Lit. right now, but I've never actually read any of her books! I should check her out.

  15. I knew you would love BookMooch! Email me your user ID and we can BookMooch friends :)

    Curious to see how you liked Octavian Nothing - I've noticed people giving it pretty bad reviews..

  16. I haven't read any of these yet! I'm definitely interested in some of them though...

  17. Hey, I'm honored I got 16 votes. :) I hope you read The Maze Runner, and I hope you like it!!!

  18. Can't wait for your shiver review!
    I hope it will be in the comment contest =)

  19. I am so envious! I've had my eye on Shiver and The Maze Runner for a while now. Must get copies of those books!

  20. What is BookMooch?
    I have been wanting to read shiver.
    I was overly optimistic about how much I could read this week. Mine is here:

  21. Congrats on the bridal shower. They are so much fun! :) I'm wondering how it went on Sunday...

  22. WOOT CRASH INTO ME. Read girl read! How's Rampant going?

  23. I love how you chastise yourself for only reading two books this past week. And you're currently reading 3 books and have the audiobook of another. I can only read one book at a time or I'll get all mixed up in the characters. Kudos to you for being able to get swept away by numerous stories all at the same time!

  24. I really want to read Shiver and Rampant. I talked to the author of Rampant by email a little bit. She seemed really cool.


Leave some love!
