    aw sad I missed the live show (I was out to lunch), but I have a recommendation for an Adult to YA crossover book! I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. I just started reading it with my book club and I love it. The main character, Cassandra, is a great narrator.

    I think every adult should read John Green’s books. They’re brilliantly written and absolutely beautiful stories.

    I opened this in two windows so I could add comments while it went! lol

    Messy that is so not messy! My bookshelves got infested with ants so we have to get rid of them. (never use unfinished wood) So now my some odd 1000 books are EVERYWHERE!

    OMG I know slow is so the word. I keep looking on Netgalley and Edelweiss and there was nothing new then all of a sudden it was BOOM over flowing!

    LOVE the cups those are so cute!

    So hope to make it to BEA in 2014!
    I need to move to NY lol all the cool things happen there!
