  1. Just realised I was following you on Google + but not your blog! So now I am a new gfc follower :-)
    I have just downloaded Cinder and hope to read it soon.

    1. Haha cool! Me too, I followed you back on GFC already following google+

  2. Good luck! I kind of hate doing challenges, because it feels like I'm forcing myself to do stuff, and it really stresses me out. :p

    1. Ah, yeah I can see that. I like the fact that this is a super low-stress can be as little or as much as you want to read in one day and I like that. But I can see how it's not for everyone! :)

  3. I've heard great things about Cinder and hope to read it soon. I love reading classics but I try to space them out over the year because they take so long to read. I read Les Miserables in March so it's a little soon for me to be taking on another classic. The Woman In White is in my classics pile, though, so I'm eager to know what others think of it. :)

    1. I've been having a problem with The Woman in White...I like it, don't get me wrong, but it's very difficult to read for a long period of time, it's interesting...but compared to other books I'm reading it's not..does that make sense? Lol.

      Idk I don't want to abandon it but I a, trying to read 6 classics this year for my dust off your classics challenge! Woman in white is kinda holding me up! :|

  4. I hope that your challenge is going well! I read Battle of the Labyrinth and enjoyed it and I really want to read Cinder. I hope the classic gets faster. :)

    1. Thanks! I finished Tempted and just started Battle of the Labyrinth! Cinder is really good!! :tup

  5. Cinder is awesome!!!! I promise you won't even be able to put that book down until it's done! Also, I like the classic - idea, should've thought of that one, too...

    1. I'm seriously loving it! You're right I haven't been able to put it down --especially today!!
