That start of your vlog made me laugh so much when you were playing with that light. AND WHO GOT YOU OBSESSED WITH YOUR KINDLE ;)

I need to borrow the Carrie Jones books from you at some point so I can start reading it. Idk if my library has it and I'm on a book buying ban lol (we'll see how long that lasts...).

I hope you liked WITHER as much as I did. Also, you should have told me you're obsessed with cookie now; I got like five bazillion recipes!

Tori [Book Faery] said...

@ La Femme Readers (Eleni),

Thank you for sharing that awesome post! I needed those updates at the end of the post by the way! And I want to know what you think of the third book of the Need series, because I'm not sure if I want to read it...Thanks for following my blog too by the way! Loved your vlog too...short and to the point, unlike mine...I can never seem to get mine to be short no matter the number of things I'm talking about in the vlog lol!

@La Femme Readers (Eleni),

*grins sheepishly* Oh, you're absolutely welcome! I really like your blog!

I'm so obsessed with Vampire Diaries, it's completely ridiculous, and I kind of go nuts when Damon's on-screen. He's so...appealing lol. I'll have to check out your review for Firelight, see what you thought, because I've only seen a handful of reviews...I actually am going to re-read the Kissed by Angel trilogy since it's been so long but I absolutely loved it when I first read it; I can't wait to dive into it again.

Thank you and *laughs* I don't actually know why I don't show my face *shrugs* it could be because I don't like the way I look in pics or videos, or maybe I just tend to act/feel more awkward when I see myself in the camera or a mix of both reasons *cracks up* I know, I'm weird.

And thanks, happy reading to you too!
