  2. You got some great books Liz! Isn't The Diviners' HUGE? I can't wait to read Adaptation (ugh, that cover gives me a headache) and I LOVE Fathomless' cover in real life! Enjoy your books!

  3. Looks like you got some fantastic books, and how lucky you are to get an iPad! I just got an iPhone last week and am loving it.

  4. Ok, SO MANY COMMENTS:

    1. You look awesome today. I was just going to comment on the lipstick (yay, red lips!), but then I saw the shirt, which I'm loving, AND THEN I saw your polish. Fashion win, Liz. Fashion win.

    2. I thought about accepting Adaptation, but I was really torn on Ash, so I'm not sure whether to spend more of my time on Malinda Lo. So I'm going to wait to see what you think.

    3. How did I miss the Wrinkle in Time gn in :01's email? #fail

    4. And on to the books:
    Definitely need to pick up The Curiousities. Anything with Brenna Yovanoff in it needs to be on my shelves.

    PERSUASION! I need to pick up the rest of the clothbound editions. And all of the Threads editions, because OMG.

    I really need to read Nevermore. I look at it every now and then and think, why haven't I read you?

    Ok, that's all. =D

    1. Thank you, Misty, I try :D

      I haven't read Ash yet, but I do own a copy. Eventually, I will READ ALL OF THE BOOKS.

      I love the clothbound editions. One of the non-Jane ones I want is Great Expectations--I lost the copy I had to an ex-boyfriend.

      You do need to read Nevermore! It's strange but in a good way, I think.

    2. Strange in a good way always appeals to me... I was actually looking at it earlier today, wondering when I could work it in.
