  1. 4 of these were on my books to read, but they all sound good!

    1. Which ones? I am most excited to read The Inventor's Secret!

    2. Tell the Wolves I'm Home, The Fault in Our Stars, Whistling Past the Graveyard & All the Light We Cannot See (did you tell me about that one? I downloaded the preview on my Kindle app a few nights ago). I was going to say, The Inventor's Secret sounds interesting (I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's title, but sometimes I do).

    3. The book I told you about was called The Steady Running of the Hour. I got that one in late April.

  2. I want to read The Fault in Our Stars, I want to see the movie too! :) I'm reading the 50 shades of Grey and The Pretty Little Liars book set. :)
