I don't like sharing, either. :)

Love the Maggie Stiefvater pick! I still need to read some of her books!

Have fun reading!

Oh Shiver! I love that series. Just finished reading The Raven Boys - it's going to be another great one. Happy reading!

Also I am so incredibly impressed with 300 pages. That's really great.

Way to rock Bout Of Books!

I'm one of those weird people who was not a fan of Shiver. Hope you enjoy it though! You are killing the blog visiting! :D
