VeganYANerds - That is a lot of money, what a fantastic thing to do and be a part of!

My eyes were drawn to Star Crossed write away, OMG!!! I bet it’s going to be awesome and I hope you can get through that stack of books so you can finally read it 😀

Jess @ Gone with the Words - OMG STAR CROSSED!!! Dying to read that one! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it! 😀 Also, I love that you won 4 books from the auction. I won one auction myself. 🙂

April Books & Wine - ERMAGHERD I am so so so jealous of Starcrossed.

YAY FOR SECOND HELPINGS, I think that is my favorite Jessica Darling book of the whole series.

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Awww — I’ve missed your vlogs! I’m going to try to do one soon … now that I have a webcam on our new laptop! I’m mildly envious that you actually got to OPEN your Secret Santa present — my hubby made me put mine under the tree and wait ’til Christmas =P Oh well, the anticipation’s half the fun, right? I hope I’ll also have a Jennifer Echols book under the tree as well — she was on the wishlist that I gave to my hubby as one of my top picks. Based on your rave reviews, I’m really excited to read her books!

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - Wow, $13, 000 is amazing! I totally would have brought something from the auction but they were only shipping to the US so I couldn’t 🙁 Oh well, it seems like they did a great job of raising money! I haven’t read anything by Niki Burnham so will be interested to see what you think of her books. I only just found out about The Girl in the Wall a few weeks ago but it looks really good and I’ve heard great things about it. Second Helpings! I read Sloppy Firsts earlier this year but am looking forward to continuing the series. Star Crosses – sqee! I love Jennifer Echols and even though I don’t read Adult, it sure does look amazing! I’m even tempted to read it anyway ;D

Amazing book haul and I hope you get to read all the books you want to read before the year is over. Go you!

YA for NJ: Good Books For A Good Cause

Even though I live in New York and I’m darn proud of it, I’m equally proud and protective of New Jersey, where I grew up. Home to disco fries (gravy and mozzarella cheese on fries!) , Bon Jovi, and the shore. (For the YA junkies, Jessica Darling!) Unfortunately, the state that I love was horribly affected by […]
