  1. Just One Day! Catching Jordan!!

    I soooo loved the If I Stay series that I can't wait for Gayle Forman's newest series -- I'll be diving in right away when I get it! And the Hundred Oaks series is AWESOME! I hope you like it!

  2. Ooh so many awesome books, both MG and Adult. The MG books have really nice covers.


  3. Ooh, it looks like you got some cool adult books for review! How neat. =) I hope you enjoy them, and I think it's fabulous that you're branching out some more! <3 Also, I'm really excited to read Just One Day! I've only read 1 Gayle Forman book, but I'm already in lurve with her with her writing. ;) And I've heard such great things about Catching Jordan! I can't wait to see what you think.

    Fantastic haul! Happy reading Margie. <3

  4. You've definitely piqued my interest with the Macy Beckett book. I will have to check that one out. Also, I have the same scarf. I wear it all the time! It's great, right?

  5. I love the idea of the 24-hour author read-along, that would be so much fun! Hopefully more authors will start doing that. I'm going to have to go check out the Macy Beckett book now, I'm curious! Miranda Kenneally's books are awesome, I can't wait to see what you think. Great haul, Margie! :-)
