  3. Awesome haul you guys.

    First, congrats on your new job! Very exciting :) ReVamped was freakin' awesome! So happy you enjoyed it too. Ada is such a sweetie. I am so excited that you are going to be starting Hush, Hush. Loooooooved that series!!

    I am still very on the fence about starting the 50 Shades books, but I might break down and start them lol So awesome that you and your mom enjoy the same type of books and are able to share!

    Enjoy all the books you got ladies and thanks for sharing. Happy reading <3

    1. I literally just started the series minutes ago. There has been so much talk about it I just have to read it. So many varied opinions, I can't wait to form my own :). I won't be posting a review on here though haha, doesn't really fit into our genre of reviews =P.
      It really is awesome, we have been sharing books for as long as I can remember :)
      Thanks so much for stopping by! :D

  6. I loved Ascend, Anna Dressed In Blood, and Hush Hush. I liked the Fifty Shades trilogy as well. I can't believe how famous they are now. Some love and hate it with them but I found them addicting and worth the read. Hope you enjoy everything. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks for the return visit! So far I'm really enjoying Anna, it's not at all what I thought it was, not that I'm sure of what I thought.. :P

  10. YAY JEN!! I'm so happy to hear that your cold is officially gone -- those terrible thins can drag on forever sometimes LOL x) But you have some amazing books to help cheer you up too! I absolutely ADORED ReVamped (and Ada too for being the sweetest Canadian author ever), and Hush, Hush rocks! :)

    And you're soooo lucky that you have Ascend, Meghan! I'm a major Amanda Hocking fan and can't wait to get my hands on that book too :) Plus, I keep hearing things about the Twilight fanfic series (some really good, some REALLY bad haha), so I'm curious to what you think!

    Awesome owl post this week, you two! I hope you enjoy all of your awesome books! :) <3

    2. Haha, much thanks! I got it for about 4$ at my local walmart haha. I am really looking forward to reading it. The first two were really quite good :). I have definitely heard A LOT about 50 shades to. But I'm halfway through the second one now and I'm really liking them. Though I can see why they're not for everyone haha.
      Thanks so much for stopping by!
