Estelle - It might actually make a good TV series too if you think about it. haha. I did like the book but now that I’ve read more of Scott’s books… this one is falling in my list. I loved Bloom and just finished Between Here & Forever. They both ended better for me. The story seemed to work better. But this one was still intriguing and I just love the colors in that cover. Thanks for coming by to comment!

Estelle - I was like that for awhile but after I read The Last Song, I sort of changed my mind. He did a nice job with that one and sort of moved outside of his comfort zone. I’m glad I stopped by! Added your blog to my Google Reader & I’m looking forward to reading more soon!

Estelle - I have to say I love the second movie more. I’m not sure if that puts me in the minority but I just really, really love it. haha. Except for her lame bachelorette party with all those super young princesses. I never got that part. Thanks for commenting Daisy! :)

November 29, 2011 - 1:13 pm

Daisy - Thanks for the double shout out! :)
I really need to read The Princess Diaries series as well! I’ve seen the movie a million times and actually own it, it is so CUTE! Did you see the second movie as well?
