I'll do a lil ramble about the ones I think I have not rambled at you about already! ^_^
Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon was awesome! A lovely FB friend has sent me nearly the entire set of these books now! i highly recommend. It has stone circles, and time travel and a kilted highland lover and some sauciness! What more can you need ^_^
The Malorie Blackman books are amazing! I really loved those. Unputtdownables for sure.
Snow White and the Huntsman was alright. A nice quick read. I like the movie more ^_^
The Red Queen was brilliant. Ditto the Kingmaker's Daughter, although it took me a while to get into that one.
Nostradamus ate my hamster...was kinda funny kinda very odd! lol
Mr Magorium was a sweet read.
Harriet Bean and Stuart Little were a little bit cheaty! They were nice and quick to read and took my fundraiser up past 30.
The Dalai Lama's Cat is a lovely book.I really enjoyed that one and look forward to the sequal ^_^
The Frog Princess was pretty sweet to read. I have the next two books to read too.
At the moment I am reading The Vampire Shrink by Lynda Hilburn. Pure vampire nonsens ^_^ Bliss! lol
So, I know I have not sent out the little gifts to celebrate Laura reaching her first 50 books....at this rate she will reach 100 before I get round to it! I will get a little something out to everyone I promise. I am just not sure when!
happy reading lovely peeps
