So I Was Like, "Whoa!"

That pretty much sums up my morning. I was sitting around all innocently when I happened to glance towards the pile of books that I have to review. And then I couldn't find it. That was because it has SHRUNK to a mere TWO BOOKS.

So I was like, "Whoa."

And then I did a dance.

Anyways, as long as this keeps up and I don't get anymore books in the mail for the next two days, I can get through it and finally read Ever by Gail Carson Levine, which I've had forever (Like, seriously, no pun intended).

But anyways (my, how I ramble on!). You may remember that last week Rachel Cohn and David Levithan held the made of awesomeness position with Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist? Yeah, sorry David and Rachel, but John Green came along and kicked you guys out with Paper Towns. Amazing book.

Also, Susan Juby's Getting the Girl? Spectacular! I knew that she was an amazing author the moment I read the opening line of Alice, I Think. I've even memorized it. "I blame it all on The Hobbit. That and my supportive home life." I *heart* her.

I also started my required reading. I am proud of me. However, it is Steinbeck, and seeing as I have issues with his writing (his tendenciy to just start rambling about ABSOLUTELY POINTLESS JUNK), this promises to be a fun time.

And now, since I've just completed scheduling posts for the next two weeks and am feeling extremely proud of myself, I am going to go have a life...err...finish Getting the Girl.

Two books? Wow, I am jealous.

*looks at 12 books*

And I thought I was doing well.

I really really wanna read Paper Towns. It's killing me, wanting to get my hands on it... I don't want to have to wait!

Haha, let's just hope that I don't get any more books in the mail! (Which is actually pretty much an impossible thing for me to wish, seeing as there are a bunch that are on their way/I wish were coming. It's a never ending cycle. I am quite posibly insane. And I have a slight (read, large) probem in which I buy books I want when I already have like a bajillion. What a life.
