  31. OMG! Confession of an Angry Girl, Touch of Death, Kiss of Death, Black City, Storm, and all the other books you have were really good or I've heard the best things about them! (The ones I listed were the ones I read ;P)

    But I am legitly SO jealous of Dark Frost! I've been wanting that since like a whole birthday ago, but I never seemed to have got it...OH WELL. And now this whole comment just reminded me of doing my homework and how i need to print something out...

    I am so random.

    HEY! I love your new blog design! So prettiful :D (You did get a new one right? Or am I just going REALLY insane?)

    Awesome haul!

    1. OMG! This totally made my day. :> Glad to know you liked those books, I'm so excited to get started!

      Also, I know how you feel about homework, I haven't done anything yet even if I know I've got to prepare some stuff for school. XD

      And yes! We just recently gave our blog a makeover and I'm so glad you like it. We even named the 2 birds that appear on the header and the slides. Thank you again for dropping by!
