(*I only chose 4 because they're the four book blogger sites that I follow most religiously)

1. Steph who I met at BEA this summer and gave me her extra copy of Catching Fire after I told her my horror story about getting up early to wait in line for tickets only to see the last ticket go to the woman right in front of me.
2. Alea whose blog is one of my favorites - I love checking out the cover comparisons she does
3. Cheryl and Amber at Just Your Typical Book Blog because it's anything but - I love their reviews and interviews and book pictures (not to mention that awesome clip of the boys from Supernatural, sa-woon)
4. The Compulsive Reader who does some of my favorite in depth reviews - I feel like I can always trust them to be honest and well explained

No one knows...the guy G from the Break Up Bag story just got engage, less than a year after he gave me the Break Up Bag. Looks like I dodged a bullet.

"Katsa didn't look back as they rode away. But she gripped Bittureblue tightly; and she called out to him, his name bursting inside her so painfully that for a long while, she could feel nothing else." ~ Graceling by Kristin Cashore (pg 328)


Alea said...

Aww thanks! You are too sweet!

Congratulations! Very well deserved.

Aww thank you so much chick! I'm glad you enjoy the Supernatural clips, those boys are just so damn swoon worthy.

Dodge a bullet indeed! I think you should send G a thing of chips and salsa for a congratulations present :)

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
