Out With A Bang Update

I am such a bad book blogger :(

No really. The challenge started Tuesday and I've read maybe.... a page and a half? Oops O.O HOWEVER, I will be tearing myself away from my DS this afternoon (*sniff sniff*) to read some. I'm hoping to at least finish my current read Pretty Little Liars, and if I have time I'll be reading Are You There God, It's Me Margaret?

Now I will get reading :) Hope everyone is having a good end of the year!

Out With A Bang reading list

The next few days I'm going to try to read some of my older books in my TBR stack, to make room for the new ones I got for Christmas :) Be sure to click the pictures to see more info at their Amazon pages! My list is as follows:

Pretty Little Liars (TV Show Edition) by Sara Shepard

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret (Re-Read) by Judy Bloom

Be looking for my review on this one, I have two copies and will be giving one away!

Real Live Boyfriends (ARC) by E. Lockhart

Leven Thumps and the Eyes of Want by Obert Skye

I can't actually remember if I read this one :/ I know I read the first two, and when I went digging in my closet for books for this list I found this one and book 4 (see below) and since I got book 5, the last one, for Christmas (SUPER excited!) I figured I should brush up on this one and read the next one so I'm set to read the last one!

Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra by Obert Skye

The Love Killer by Josh McDowell

I actually forgot I had this one.... I'm glad I found it! I'm really looking forward to reading this one.

Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill

The title of this book was intriguing, I had to pick it up. It actually sounded really great, so I bought it :) I'm posting this because one of my friends who reads my blog thinks this book sounds completely creepy :P Just for you Shortie! ;)

Hopefully I can get through all of these in the next few days.... I bought two new DS games with my Christmas giftcards and have an older one I'm re-playing so I'm not sure how well my balancing time will go :P

Out With A Bang Read-A-Thon

I will be participating in the Out With A Bang Read-A-Thon, hosted by Book-Savvy and The Bookish Type. Basically the rules are to read as much of your TBR stacks as possible during that time period to prepare for all of the new releases and reading challenges in 2011. I have quite a few older books I need to read before I start reading the new ones I got for Christmas :) I'm excited to start this challenge!

If you want to participate, you can find the complete details and the sign-up linky at this post. Good luck and let me know if you join! :)

Secret Santa Swap!

So I finally am home for break, and I have my package for my Secret Santa book swap! I was super excited, so I had to open it and share it right away :D I got two books: The Highwayman of Tanglewood and.... MATCHED!!!!!! I was super excited to get this, because I have wanted it for awhile :D The other one wasn't on my wishlist, but my Secret Santa left a note with it saying it was a Christian author and that she thought I might like it based off of my other books.
I also got a few goodies: a pair of fuzzy socks (which I love!), a book light! (woohoo!), a cute Christmas tree snowglobe, and an amazing Eiffel Tower bookmark!!! I am definitely using it right away, that's for sure ;)
I plan to start Matched ASAP, and the other one soon after :) I also have two others I won recently off of blogs, plus my already HUGE TBR stack, so I plan to read tons these next three weeks of break :)

To my Secret Santa: thank you so so so much!!!! I would love to know who you are, so I can follow your blog and send you a thank you card ;)

To my readers: be prepared for reviews galore these next few weeks! :D

Have a great Christmas!
