  6. Aww so sorry to hear about your pup ! My baby has been really ill too, I posted about her in my STS this week, it's devestating when they aren't well and the vet bills are horrendous. Still they are sooo worth it! I'll be checking in to see how little Miley Rose is doing! Prayers and Hugs from Ireland xxx

  7. Aw, sorry to hear about your doggy :( Both my dogs have been sick this week, but we took them to the vet and luckily it's nothing major! I hope she feels better soon! <3 xxx

    You got awesome books, I really want to read Cinder, Breadcrumbs and Delirium, and they are all on my TBR pile waiting to be read!

    Enjoy your new books!

  10. I have Breadcrumbs on my schedule to read soon ... it looks really good! And yay for Cinder! And a SIGNED Cinder! I have that one on my shelf and really need to get to it since everyone really loves it. I hope you love the Gayle Forman book, too ... it's really, really great. :)

    Have a good week, Margie!

  11. Nice haul.

    I've yet to read Cinder, but I'm already excited to read that and Scarlet when I get the chance.

    Please check out my haul at http://thewanderingbookworm.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/book-haul-showcase-sundayletterbox-lovestacking-the-shelvesbought-borrowed-bagged-9-march-2013/ and enjoy your reads.

  12. I'm so, so sorry to hear about your puppy. I can only imagine what you must be going through, I have a furbaby myself and he is absolutely the WORLD to me. I hope everything continues to go well with Miley Rose and she continues to get better. I'll be thinking about you and your family <3 The cost of vet bills are absolutely outrageous, I think it's so sad that loving animal owners are put in such financial strain just to help another member of their family .

    Your book haul is wonderful. A signed copy of Cinder... <3 Amazing. I read Raven this week and I cried... and cried... lol. I hope you enjoy all your books.

  13. Awww, I hope your puppy is doing okay. One of my dogs had to go to the animal hospital because she ate an aleve. It was awful, and so so stressful. But she's good now.

    As for your books - yay for Cinder! It's a favorite.

  14. I didn't like Die For Me but I really enjoyed Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, can't wait for the next book!

    Happy reading! :)
