  1. Ah! You met Lauren Kate! I would have done the same thing if I walked up to the door and she was right there. Like star struck. I LOVE her books. I may have fainted lol. I have been eyeing Bittersweet since it came out so I can't wait to see what you thought about it. Oh and your little gal is adorable lol. Great haul this week and happy reading!

  2. awesome haul!! I loved Bittersweet!!

  3. OMG, I love your daughter! How funny! So jealous you met Lauren Kate. Love that series!

  4. Awesome! I always get super nervous when I meet authors! I never know what to say because I don't want to seem like a crazy person but inside I really am a crazy person lol Yeah I never like Daniel much. I like Cam and that other guy that came in Miles or something I can't remember it's been so long since I read them. Bittersweet looks really cute. I'm not the biggest contemporary romance fan but I'm coming around to it.

  5. I got Born Wicked this week too! I get really nervous when I'm going to meet anyone famous. I dang near lost my mind when I got the chance to meet Kellie Pickler through our local radio station. NOT a pretty sight. Great IMM and happy reading!


  6. Bittersweet and Born Wicked are on my wishlist, I can't wait to get my hands on them! So nice your collection of personalized signed books is growing. :D
    It's always great to meet authors of the books you love, isn't it? Too bad not so many authors come to my country, so far I've only met Terry Pratchett (and he was hilarious).

    Have a fabulous Sunday!

    Here's my IMM. ♥

  7. I've been hearing good things about Bittersweet and the cover is so pretty! =)

  8. How cool that you got to meet Lauren Kate! It's always fantastic to meet authors. I hope you enjoy Born Wicked. I really liked it. I have Bittersweet, but haven't read it yet. The cover is so pretty though. :)

  9. you better give her that chocolate milk! lol.

    I didn't get to film mine yesterday like planned.. But she's feeling much better today so maybe I'll do it this afternoon. :)

    I still can't believe you won that copy of born wicked. Too funny. Mine says the same, but in gold ink. Thanks again for it btw. <3

    That's great that Lauren Kate is nice.. One of these days I'll have to try Fallen. Maybe when the angel craze dies down.

    Love the new camera.. looks much better because it's not just a sliver of the screen. you'll get used to it! :)

  10. I've been seeing a lot of good reviews for Born Wicked and I'm dying to read it! Enjoy all your books!
