You got so many great books. If you decide you don't want to hold a contest for Ash I would be happy to take that off your hands. =] I want to read it so bad. Other than that Deadly Little Lies definitely sounds like one that might be a little creepier. Enjoy!

Deadly LIttle Lies looks great to me if only for the red umbrella! Great little haul you have there. I'd be excited about Blue Moon but I wasn't all that impressed with it's predecessor. Happy reading.

The cover for Deadly Little Lies is really cool. I never seem to find books on the shelves early, which is a little upsetting (it makes me feel unlucky haha). Happy reading!

I literally let out a gasp when I saw that you have "Deadly Little Lies." A gasp! My sister was concerned for me. I hope that it's amazing and that you enjoy it!

Happy reading!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
