Amy Armstrong Hi Kalayna, thanks so much for accepting my friend request. Hope you're having a fab day!

Maria Renee Thanks for the friendship...just finished Alex Craft#2 over the weekend. Had to sleep late just to finish it, and I also sneaked in a few pages at work. Please don't tell my boss, lol. Waiting for Grave Memory & Third Blood so I can continue with the series. Again, thanks for accepting my request.
