  1. Dear Bully! Love that book! I'm curious to see what the Chopsticks thing is about. I saw Kristi's IMM with it too, and I'm intrigued.


  2. I am SO JEALOUS about Chopsticks. It sounds like such an epic thing to read, and I've been lusting after it since I first heard about it. The Difference Between You and Me has been recommended by one of my close friends, and it's lesbian YA! So I hope you enjoy that one in particular. :)

    I hope you enjoy your books. I'm off to check out those best-of lists....
