I'm going to pretend like you made this video as soon as Jordan and I left today, even though it was clearly shot during the day. haha.

Thanks so much to you and Kayla for Ender's Game; it will definitely be used as a prize for SRP this year :)

Ahh, I really want to read Worldsoul! Also, I can't wait for your read-aloud; it should be epic!

I didn't realize Harkness' books got super wine snobby; now I really can't wait to read the first one! Yeah! haha

You are so pretty, Christina! :-) Great vlog! I admit, I am a wee bit jealous that you have The Little Stormdancer. Review it soon, okay?! A Need So Beautiful sounds like a great book. I'll have my eye out for that one, for sure.

Will you really read The Ender's Game? OSC's books are always SO long and the subject matter never really grabs me... especially since witnessing his douche-baggery at Teen Book Con ::eye roll::

At any rate, I hope you enjoy all your lovelies! :-) Happy reading!

Pretend away!

You may borrow Worldsoul. (obvi)

You will love the All Souls Trilogy like you love Outlander, with a bit less shame.

Hahah, I was so excited about The Little Stormdancer. I mean, I'm always excited, but this is a thing I couldn't go to a store and buy! It's super cute.

It will be up in August!

I actually have read Ender's Game. Two or three times. I didn't know OSC was such a douche at the time. I really liked it, obviously, but I don't support his behavior. I'm a science fiction girl though. He as a person = not awesome. He as a writer = sometimes awesome.

Also, where were all of you when I had no self-esteem? *hugs*

I do enjoy wine and history and sexytimes and was a Social Studies education major in college. Sigh. Awesome. AND OMG my coworker was asking me about it today, the A Discovery Of Witches and I was sad because I didn't have it/hadn't read it yet, so I couldn't tell him whether it was good or not.

Sigh. I liked Ender's Game as a book, but I cannot stand OSC as a person. And yeah, writer sometimes awesome.

I hope you do get to A Need So Beautiful, it's a gorgeous read. I was not a a big fan of the sequel, but the first book is just fabulous.

I thought I was going to die from blushing at the beginning of your blog! I'm so glad you liked your loot. I'll see what I did with the other copies of Ender's Game if Heather(?) needs more prizes. :-)

Hahaha, I was totally thinking of you with this book. I think you'll definitely enjoy it. I mean, what's not to love, right? There are some ridiculous things, but mostly I didn't care because it was so addictively awesome.

I just learned this past year about what a freaking douche OSC is, and I was so surprised. I guess I should have seen it coming with his late life conversion and stuff.

Yay! I'm glad you recommend it. The cover's so pretty!

Heather raided local Goodwills to find prizes. Otherwise the kids seriously wouldn't be getting anything. She's such a good librarian.

I love loot! Thanks again, doll!
