Curiosity Killed the Bookworm ~ Limerick Challenge
My eyes are tired and itch.
If I stay up reading much longer I'll turn into a witch!
What could you really do?
If i turned on you?
Besides go and tell on me like a snitch!

BookSmartie ~ Candy Challenge 
Unlike the BookSmartie I have never tried eating what the characters are eating. That sounds like so much fun, though, So I will definitely have to try it. But my eating habits during reading are since I don't like to stop reading I usually eat dinner or lunch while reading, but for snacking wise I usually try to only eating something if I am starving and something that isn't messy. I do not want food particles on my books lol. I also always get a pepsi or make a cherry pepsi with grenadine as my drink of choice =D

Books With Cass ~ Contemporary Challenge

  • Choose your favorite contemporary of 2012 (thus far)
  • Choose your favorite contemporary COVER of 2012 (thus far)
  • and explain your biggest *SURPRISE* contemporary book of this year..
  • (SURPRISE contemporary means: the book you may have not expected to love, but did)

My Favorite Contemporary: Easy by Tamara Webber
My Favorite Contemporary Cover: Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook. I just think it draws (hehe) you in, because it really doesn't give a hint of whats in the pages.
My Surprise Contemporary This Year: Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry. I expected to like it, but I didn't expect to love it as much as I do. Definitely believe the hype and buy and read this novel. Its AMAZING!!

Pages of Forbidden Love ~ Most Looking Forward To Challenge

1. What book are you most looking forward to based on summary alone? Feel free to show off the summary!
My choice is "Meant to Be" By Lauren Morrill 

"Meant to be or not mean to be... that is the question.
It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the -gasp-wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").
But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts... from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.
Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.

2. What book are you most looking forward to based on cover art alone? Feel free to show off the beautiful cover art!
My choice is "Paper Valentine" By Brenna Yovanoff 
I know I have chosen this book for a lot of things in my blogging career lol, but I really love this cover. I can't even tell you what the book is about if you asked me right now, I just love the cover and know I will own and read it LMAO
