In My Mailbox (60)

  8. New follower! I love that you have kids books in your list. Hatchet is one of my faves, and Crispin was good too! Here is my IMM if you'd like to follow back:

  9. Haha, your dog is so adorable!

    I'm so eager to read The Fault in Our Stars. I confess, I've never read a John Green book but I've been totally convinced to read it by a few trustworthy bloggers. I'd also need to have my book signed in Green. It's just the logical and reasonable way to go.

    I didn't like Bad Taste in Boys very much, but I love how those boys are calling the books 'Sugar Lips.' TOO FUNNY.

    Thank you for reminding me why I used to find picture books so appealing, by the way. I'm thinking maybe I should pick out a favorite and buy one ;)

    Have an amazing reading week!

  10. I really want to read TFIOS! Everyone has been talking about it these past couple of weeks and now I'm desperate to read it :D.

    I didn't care for Bad Taste in Boys very much either, I felt that it was very over the top.

    Enjoy these! New follower :)
