LOLOLOLOL YOU WON THAT BLUE BLOODS BOOK!! That's the one I told you about, the book that's part of this awful series that was kind of really terrible a la Gossip Girl but it reminded me so much of Angel Sanctuary that I just don't care. (Let's say it's Gossip Girl meets Twilight meets Angel Sanctuary. That about sums up the whole series.) THAT SETTLES IT YOU HAVE TO LEND IT TO ME WHEN YOU GET IT. HEHEHEHEHEHEHE.

!! Cornelia Funke!! I never really tried her stuff beyond her Inkworld trilogy... (LEND ME) lol M.T. Anderson should be good. I liked his other book, anyhow. And homg Christine Feehan. *SHUDDERS* I'd say something about exorcising that one but fans will kill me...

*coughs* So, anyhow, THAT BLUE BLOODS BOOK, FORK IT OVER. =D *is shot*

@ ah yuan
LAWL I KNEW YOU WOULD DEMAND AT LEAST ONE OF THESE NEW TITLES XDDDDD;
wow, Angel Sanctuary REALLY? DO YOU HAVE THE EARLIER BOOKS??? *shameless*
if I get the ♥BOX OF BOOKS♥ before winter break, I'll bring it ove--oh wait that's IMPOSSIBLE--er try and lug a few over to your place 8Dv

@ninefly,
I SAW A BOXED SET OF THE FIRST 3 AT COSTCO FOR LESS THAN 20 BUCKS, WILL BE BUYING. (and hating myself all the while, but w/e.)

what a great idea for a post - I hope you don't mind if someday (someday when I have time) I decide to copy the idea.
And congrats on all the awesome books you've already won!
