Instead, the issue is writing receives lower priority on my list of things to do, even if I would rather spend the afternoon escaping to my bedroom with my laptop. It is hard to budget the time when you work in finance (just found out I passed level 3 of the CFA exam!), have a wedding to plan, and relationships to maintain. However, the lapse of time just makes it sweeter when I actually key my thoughts into the computer.(less)

Haha, I'm hoping she is a relatable teenager - a little quiet and insecure. The backbone is growing throughout the series...in book 3, she's going to kick some Meta butt!

Alas, she will need her friends! Hermione Granger taught us that:

"Harry--you're a great wizard, you know."
"I'm not as good as you," said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let him go.
"Me!" said Hermione. "Books! And cleverness! There are more important things--friendship and bravery and--oh Harry--be careful!"

Thank you for reading!!!

Alana Mag Awesome! I will check the group!

My boyfriend and I have been dating for over 10 years. We are high school sweethearts. It was still a fantastic surprise!


Brooke (The Cover Contessa) OMG OMG OMG!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Was it a surprise to you???
Yes, I got the book. I sent you an invite to the Shut Up and Read group because they were doing a read it and reap and were giving the book away for reviews. So I was able to get it for free!!! Join the group and see if there are any spots left. They were giving away to the first 50 people who signed up, not sure if they hit that or not.

Alana Mag Not yet! I was going to download it on to my kindle!


Brooke (The Cover Contessa) Alana wrote: "Oh yes! Exciting! Let me know when you have it!"

I have been looking all over for it, to see if you can pre-order. I can't find it anywhere. Do you have it already?


message 9: by Alana

Alana Mag Oh yes! Exciting! Let me know when you have it!


Brooke (The Cover Contessa) It's sneaking up on us. Of course I have to figure out how I'm gonna get that book!

Alana Mag I'm sorry for taking so long to respond! I think I'm going to hold off reading until the other book comes out. I need to spend some time studying! We'll stay in touch and have fun with your WT challenge!


Brooke (The Cover Contessa) Take a look at my books in the folder called WT Challenge 12. Anything in there would be good. I don't have some of them (those that I do are marked as owned). I'm trying to aquire a few I don't have, others I will take out from the library.

Sure! What 26 books are you reading?


Brooke (The Cover Contessa) Hey, do you want to do a read in the beginning of April until the other books comes out (which is not until April 26th)? Let me know. I'm doing a reading challenge that has 26 books on it so maybe we can do one from there?
