    1. Thanks girl, Normally "Next to You" is not really in my genre I normally read but I was sent the first book in the series as a review and really did enjoy it.. so I have been trying to broaden my book horizons. ; ) Katie

  6. Wow, awesome haul! That's such a lovely note from Claudia Burgoa :) I've been curious about Where the Rock Splits the Sky, can't wait to see your review on it. Hope you enjoy all your books!

    My StS/Sunday Post

    1. I know.. the special notes warm me up inside.. I love it!!! I will definitely let you know what I think of Where the Rock Splits the Sky !Thanks for stopping by Alma - Katie

  7. That's so cool that it's signed!! I've got 2 signed books now and somehow that just makes them super uber special to me. ;) I love Beverly Cleary! I've read so many of her books...I think the Ramona series is my favourite, but I adored the Dear Mr. Henshaw ones too. Fond memories. OH. And I hope you like Gathering Blue! It's not actually about Jonas, which I was hugely disappointed about, but I still liked it a lot. :)) I just wanted answers after the end of The Giver!
