    Well. That's for later, I guess.

    ACADEMY 7! God, I LOVE Anne Osterlund's work (I have an interview with her on my blog, actually XD) AURELIA was great, too. Have you read AURELIA yet?

    I remember that the JENNA FOX book really freaked me out but it was a great book. (I read it way back when I had my bowl chair.)

    Oh man! I really want to read SEA as well as the JULIAN GAME.

    Well. Do have fun with your totally envy-inducing books. XD Live long and great many great books.
