    1. The cover of Revamped IS gorgeous! It is even better in real life, my camera isn't very good...

    2. I know! Hahaha. I'm loving going to yardsales this year, so nice to get great books at awesome prices! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Sorry you're sick! That really sucks. And yes -- the man cold! My husband gets like that ... he's terrible! Every sickness he gets is totally blown out of proportion, like he's never been sick before. It's pretty funny. Hope you all get better!

    And what a great book haul! Awesome books from the yard sale ... I never find great YA reads! The Gayle Forman books are WONDERFUL! I won the Jenny Han books earlier this year and can't wait to read them ...

    I liked the House of Night series in the beginning, but now it's getting to be a little long ... I haven't read the latest one in the series and am in no rush to get around to it. I've also heard awesome things about the Scott Westerfeld series -- too bad it's in French! Maybe a good reason to learn? :)

    Anyway, happy reading!

    1. Yup, he totally acts like he is dying every time he's sick. Even if I'm in worse shaped then him. OR every time someone else gets sick, he's suddenly sick too. It's terrible.

      I rarely find YA at yard sales, so I was super excited! They all sound like great reads, and I noticed that the House of Night series is about 10 books long now, that does seem long, but the Sookie Stackhouse series is getting long as well and I'm still enjoying it, so we'll see. It is too bad Uglies is in French, I was totally excited to read it!

    2. House of Night is a pretty long series and some of it does seem to drag out, but I enjoy it for the most part :)

  4. Aaaah, Jen! Don't you just love Hachette Book Group Canada? I want to hug them every time they send me a book! And I know how much you loved Belles and wanted to read Winter White, so I'm glad you got a copy too. I just known it's going to be awesome! :) Plus, I adoooooored both ReVamped and Anna Dressed in Blood, Krystal, so I hope you do too!

    1. "Anna Dressed in Blood" is SO good. I loved it, despite being wary of it at the beginning (I thought it was going to be to gory for me). I can't wait for "Girl of Nightmares"!

    1. I know what you mean. There are sooooo many books that I want to read, but just not enough time. I figure by buying a book, it will be there nagging me to read it. (Although I counted the books that I have today to see what I have that I haven't read and there is currently 45 books on my shelf to read..lol)
