  4. Hey Jen I like the way you did this post. congrats on the 142 books (maybe the hubby is right, just kidding) I love Firelight and see it is one of your favs can't wait for the next book in that series. I also haven't yet read Souless (a reread for you, but I got Christmas money hehe)

    Happy New Year!

  5. Wow, you had a hugely successful reading year! I thoroughly enjoyed Paranormalcy and Firelight as well, and I'm loving the Morganville Vampire books I've read so far! Can't wait to see what you think of Unholy Ghosts, I love Chess and Terrible something fierce:)

  6. Nice! I really love Last Sacricice too .

  7. Holy moley, you read a LOT of books this year! I've heard a lot of good things about the Parasol Protectorate series. I think I'm just going to have to pick it up now! ;) I'm also happy to have found VA this year... but I still haven't jumped on the Sookie/Morganville bandwagon. *ducks before you can throw things at me* It'll happen! :p

    I love all the "Best YA Books" you've read - besides the Morganville one since I obviously haven't read it. xD I adooooored Paranormalcy! Probably one of my absolute favorites, too. :)

    And yaaay, I love listening to Grenade. :D

    Awww, I almost freaked out when I saw my blog on your list! :D I'm so happy that you think my blog is interesting enough to keep coming back to! xD I absolutely love yours, and months later, I STILL giggle when I think about your blog title. :P

    Okay wow, spazzy, all-over-the-place comment. xD Enjoy~ Haha. *hugs*


I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!

XOXO Jen the Bibliophile
