  1. You really read ALL of these in just one year? I envy you =0( I have such a hard time reading for pleasure since I’m still in school (working on a double major that’s taking up double the time to finish)

    It’s nice to see some familiar titles though. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is actually what my ex boyfriend used to read to me over the phone when I coudnt sleep at night. I’ve been read that book, from beginning to end, at least five times and I only remember there is only one bed, for the four grandparents, since they were the oldest =0)

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I should start reading books by Nalini Singh. I have the first book “Slave to Senstation” in my TBR pile, brought by my friends for my birthday *grin*. I can’t wait to start reading it 🙂

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I do hope you stop by and visit me again. Have a good Thursday!
