Read from March 05 to 12, 2012

This was a really great book that is getting put on my honorary "laugh out loud" shelf, which is a really great place to be. I love love love the writing. The opening was amazing. I liked the idea of the story. I love that I felt like I was in London. And I loved the stories about her family members back home. :)

Definitely recommend!

I'm looking forward to the second one coming out. I hate starting a series that doesn't have the sequels out yet :( After the ending, I have a feeling this one will go somewhere very interesting!

"A bitchweasel!" Jazza's face lit up. "She's a bitchweasel! I love my new roommate.”
