  1. Thanks for anwering my questions! I can't believe you got 3 nominations, although you deserve it! All your facts and answers are really cool!

  2. Thank you! :) and oh my god Cassandra Clare! I literally just finished Clockwork Princess of The Infernal Devices. I'm more into the historically set novels, but should I read The Mortal Instuments too? I'm not into watching the film of books I like, so I'm worried I'll read it and then watch the film and it will ruin it, but I don't know! :S

    1. YES! read the mortal instruments!!! they are SO GOOD. like, tears and laughter and can't-put-it-down-for-anything-in-the-world kind of good. if you lean more towards historical novels you'll probably still prefer TID, but definitely read TMI. did you know she's writing another companion series that takes place in the future? i'm pretty excited to see how that works out :)

  3. I nominated you for (another) leibster award :) The questions are on my blog.


thanks for commenting, you wonderful person! i read every comment, and i can guarantee you just made me smile.
