Huge thanks to Egmont USA for the opportunity to review these awesome books!

I just wanted to mention that I got to meet Sarah Dessen last week at her signing at Towne Center Books in Pleasanton California and it was AWESOME! Here's a picture I got of me and Sarah at the signing.

I can hardly wait to read The Moon and More! Unfortunately I have quite a few library and review books I have to tackle first, but once I'm done with those I will definitely be reading it. I'm so excited!

I hope all of you lovely readers are having a great summer so far and are getting the chance to catch up on some great summer reading! Any suggestions for summer books I just have to read?

  1. Oh I loved Babe in Boyland! Hope you have fun reading it :)
    I did not like certain scenes in the Stieg Larsson books, they were just too - graphic.
    Enjoy your books!

    1. Yay! I've heard so many good things about it. I can't wait to finally read it.

      Yeahhh I've heard that from several people regarding Stieg Larsson's stuff. I think I'll have to read it for myself though. Eventually... :P

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. You must have one HUGE bookshelf! I can't even imagine adding 13 new books to my shelves, which are currently completely full. SO MANY BOOKS, SO LITTLE SHELF SPACE! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! :/ Great book haul, though! :)

    1. Haha DEFINITELY NOT. In fact since I moved a little over a year ago I have not been able to set up bookshelves in my new room. I *sorta* have shelves, but it's really just one long shelf on the wall above my bed and my mom doesn't want me to have any books near where my head is when I'm sleeping because she's afraid the shelf will break and the books will crush me. :P So yeah bookshelves are sort of non-existant right now. All my books are still in boxes in my room! It's so sad. But when I did have bookshelves and all my books were out believe me, there was NOT any room to spare. I was getting quite creative with the way I stacked those shelves. Hehe. :P
