  10. I'm going to cheat and link to the recommendation I wrote for this last week! I can't believe I waited so long to read The Book Thief! I loved this book so much that it's almost impossible to talk about it.

  11. As much as I loved The Immortal Rules, Masque of the Red Death, Breaking Beautiful and a couple of others, best book of the month (and year) goes to The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King!:)

  12. Yay! I didn't actually complete any books this month. I'm in the middle of A Game of Thrones and I'm about halfway through 500 Ways to Be a Better Writer. I'm thinking it will end up being Divergent as I want to read it again this weekend before Insurgent comes out. Yay!

  23. I got so caught up in revisions that I barely read, but I am currently in the middle of Girls of No Return by Erin Saldin, and I love it!

  24. I love to read horror books, anything but horror. But it is weird feeling, I'm afraid on the dark.
