  6. Oooh .... I look forward to Grown Up Sundays! I love YA but sometimes I need to read a good grown-up book, too -- and I'm not talking about 50 Shades, either!

    Love the whispering. :) I'm a musician and did a 31-day song thing in May and recorded a song one night when the house was quiet and I was the only one awake. It's one of my favourite songs that I recorded -- even though it's very quietly done!

    Enjoy your day!

  7. Alice in Zombieland!! I iz so jealous! I can't wait to read that one, it looks so good!!!! Enjoy everything :D

  8. Alice in Zombieland!! So super excited for you. I am dying to read that book!! I love the Phineas and Ferb Laughapalooza book. I bought it for my daughter and it's really cute. Great books hon!!

  9. Phineas & Ferb = Awesomeness. I approve.

    Happy reading!

  10. Alice in Zombieland sounds amazing! :) Happy reading!

  11. You received some great books this week! I can't wait to see what you think about Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter. I am a Gena Showalter fan but I am not too fond of zombies. So I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the book!

    Have a lovely week,

  12. Great books! I haven't read any of Showalter's books and I am so curious to gear what readers think. My kids would love the Phineas and Ferb joke book. Enjoy!

  13. Alice in Zombieland!! *ahhhh*
