    My IMM

  10. You got Haunting Violet! I did enjoy it but I'm still not quite sure what I think of it. The writing in the library book made me smile :D Happy reading!

  11. Whoa, a ton of books this week!! You'll be locked away reading them for the next weeks :D Hope Haunting Violet is good, I got a copy too but haven't started it yet.

    Happy reading!

  12. I can't condone writing in library books either, of course, but that is awesome :) I wish library books had papers in the back for people to write comments about the book. I always thought it would be kind of fun to see what other people had to say and see all of the book's travels.

  13. Hope you enjoy "Saving Francesca" Melina Marchetta is my all time fave author...well one of them anyway. Also check out "On the Jellicoe Road".


I love comments, so post away!
