I agree with Kelsey, i love it when you do vlogs!!! You got a lot of great books that I haven't even heard of before,but I will definately check them out. But The Eternal ones sounds awesome (Woot Woot for the word of the day). I completely forgot New Moon is already on DVD and so is Avatar, thanx for the reminder. I'll have to pick both up soon!!! Happy Reading!!!

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Loved the vlog! You should do it more often! And, haha, I tried vlogging ONCE... and never posted it because the whole thing was me going "ummm...yeah. I got this book."

Anyways, AWESOME books!!! You better be watching your back so I don't come steal Forget You and Eternal Ones from you. (I second Emma Kate's "I'd kill for that one!")
