What's Up Monday

What I'm Reading 
In A Glass Grimmly by Adam Gidwitz, Ten by Gretchen McNeil and...It's official: Today I finally hopped on the bandwagon and became a Laini Taylor fangirl! I've owned her book Lips Touch Three Times for a few years now and finally decided to really give this book a real try and see what all the fuss is about...and boy, I'm so glad I took a chance on this book! The stories are magical and creepy and Laini's writing is so lyrical and descriptive, it's such a treat to read, so colorful and delicious, like fruit or chocolate, just beautiful, simply beautiful! :)

What Else I've Been Up To
Besides reading and watching too much paranormal T.V., I've also recently discovered the total awesomesauce that is The Lizzie Bennett Diaries!  I wasn't sure I would like it when I watched the first video, but I've heard so many good things about these videos that I knew I had to give it a try and now, only a few days after I first started watching, I'm now totally addicted and can't get enough of them!  Also, three words: George. Wickam's. Abs!  Oh my lord, those abs! :P  (So basically, the primary reason I'm so addicted to these videos is the abundance of hot guys, lol.  I don't know who was in charge of casting, but whoever it was deserves two thumbs way, way up! :) <3

What Inspires Me Right Now
Recently, I was watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on T.V. and remembering how much I looooved this series and the huge impact that it had on my reading/writing life! P.S. I would still kill to be adopted by the Weasley family and to live at the Burrow! :)

Until next time,
