This week's question is:
Q. Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?
I went on Cafépress (idea stolen from Alison Can Read, because I don’t pay attention to shirts that describe me). Anyway, I immediately found a bunch that describe me, first I looked for ones about reading because I read a lot, but then I took a step back and looked at the question again and decided to just look for random life quotes that might describe me… here’s what I came up with:
- My mom actually saw this shirt at the boardwalk and told me I should get it because it’s totally true of the two of us.
- I am always confused, my friends tell me I'm blonde at heart.
- I definitely know I’ve said something like this to friends before.
- Of course there’s no such thing.
- Because I'm addicted to reading

On to the blog hop… This week's question is:
Q. Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!
Earlier this week I bought Abandon by Meg Cabot. I got it from the Borders sale for my birthday. I had planned to read Lois Lowry’s Gathering Blue and Messenger next, but now I think I might read Abandon first because the cover and synopsis look amazing. I was looking at the books I’ve read and realized I haven’t read anything by Meg Cabot, even though I have a lot of her books in my TBR pile and even a couple others on my shelf. Abandon just seems like it’s going to be a good book and a big change from Matched, I don’t like to read similar books one after another. I love mythology stories and the story of Persephone is one of my favorites. I loved Aimee Carter’s take on the story of Persephone, so I’m excited to read another take on the legend.
