Won
I won this cute little hand made doll. She is so freaking adorable with her flower petal body and acorn hat. Thanks Velvet @ vvb32 reads

Bought @ University Bookstore 
I just had to get this book, I have never seen it but I like Lilith's books
I think this HB copy is very hard to get now, even though I payed full price I didn't want to regret not getting it. 

Bought @ Half Price Books
A random local author buy
Part of my collection of this series 
Of course I had to snatch this book up when I found it used
I have already read this book, so I had to pick it up when I found it used. My Review
I am collecting all of her books

My Recent Reviews

I have been a little busy and not been reading too much these past 2 weeks. I hope soon to be out of this no reading funk soon. But I have been noticing a few other bloggers as well going through the same thing.

I miss Half Price Books! I used to visit every time I was in Ohio. Want to try Across the Universe. Also, that little doll is awesome; I love her acorn hat.

That's an awesome mailbox! :)

I really wish I could visit Half Price Books -- but I'm a Canadian girl living in a town that isn't even on most maps! :P

I hope you love all of your books!

LOVE the books you got!! I wish I could order off Half Priced Books!!! I tried, and they would charge my 80$ for shipping for only 6 books!! WAY out of my range. *sigh*.. Have a lovely week and happy reading!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. Half Price is such a wonderful store, they are so amazing! I wish they had stores in every city so everyone could enjoy their awesomeness! If you ever go to a city with a Half Price I suggest to make a stop in there and spend some money :)

The doll is so freaking cute.

Glad to hear Across the Universe is getting so many positive words, I can't wait to read it

Hi there!

I am Patch's advocate in the YA Crush Tournament and I see that you are a fan of Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush Hush saga so I am personally reaching out to you to help spread the word about his next match where he will be up against Peeta from The Hunger Games!

It takes place over at The YA Sisterhood on Friday, July 22nd until midnight on Saturday, July 23rd. During the first round, people were able to vote as many times as they liked, but this round the votes are constricted down to ONE VOTE PER COMPUTER, so we really need to call in Patch's reinforcements and get him to win! :)

Please come and vote on that day and until then, spread the word; let anyone and everyone know to VOTE PATCH!

THANK YOU!

-Momo

P.S. I have a few Patch buttons on the top right sidebar of my blog, so if you want to grab one and put it on your blog to help further promote Patch, I would be grateful. If you do get a button, please put VOTE PATCH on 7/22/11 somewhere to clue people in! Again, thank you so much!
