message 2: by Jamie

Jamie So I've had both the Ivy(The Ivy&Secrets) books out from the library for like 2+ months and I had to take them back today and it occurred to me right about the time I realized I'd been hovering by the book return drop box for ten minutes debating whether or not to put my hands back in to to dig them out (True Story :) .... 'Wow I must really- A.need to buy these books and B.get a life!!' Lol they are addicting!

Shanyn (Chick Loves Lit) Thanks for the friend request, glad you enjoyed the review! I'll let you know when it goes up on my blog... can't wait for #2!
