  1. Ooh, there's a few on here that I haven't signed up for, but think I might!

    I'm currently signed up to do the Debut Author, Standalone, and TBR. In addition to those I'm doing the Paranormal Reading Challenge, and once the sign ups are posted I'll be doing the Verse Novel Challenge hosted by Born Bookish. :)

  2. Thanks for joining us! Enjoy the challenge :)

  3. I haven't seen The Hobbit yet, but I've heard really good things about it already :) Thanks for joining the challenge!

  4. I've added a new inlinkz list for sharing book to movie reviews, available in this post. I'm looking forward to seeing your reviews :)

  5. DreamHost is ultimately the best hosting company for any hosting services you need.


I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
