I'm way behind on this, but if you follow me on Twitter then you know I just got done reading ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins.

Now, I read LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR first, which I know is out of order. So in the end I knew what would become of Anna and St. Clair. I thought that would ruin it for me, but it absolutely did not. Since I'd already checked out Lola, I knew that I could expect an amazing story from Anna. And let me tell you, it didn't disappoint.

Have you ever read a book that made you want to hug it close to your chest after you finished it? Yeah, that was Anna. I just got through this amazing journey with this character, and ended up falling in love with St. Clair along with her, that I just didn't want it to end. (Pretty much exactly how I felt after reading Lola.) I sat there staring at the cover, wishing for just a few more pages. A part of me wanted to start reading Lola immediately after, but then I realized my friend is borrowing it and inside I screamed, "NOOOOOO!"

I seriously cannot wait for Stephanie's new book: ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER. Will she bring Lola and Cricket in for a special appearance along with Anna and St. Clair? I bet she will somehow!

What book gives you ALL THE FEELS?

It's Almost Fall! Know What That Means?


First of all, can we talk about this trailer? *SPOILER ALERT* Don't watch this if you haven't seen the third season.

When I first heard about Vampire Diaries I was like: "Ugh. Please. It's just another Twilight." I stayed far away for the first two seasons. It's a dumb excuse but it's true. Then I found out that *duh* Vampire Diaries came out in book form way before Twilight and I was being totally ridiculous and needed to jump on the TVD train immediately!

In comes my favorite thing ever: NETFLIX. I kept passing the TVD cover in my suggestions and finally I was like okay, let's do this. The first episode or two were kind of cheesy, but I instantly fell for the Stefan/Elena romance. Who wouldn't?! Of course there was Damon and my life changed when I discovered the hotness of Ian Somerhalder. Bye bye, Edward! (Btw...what happened to the Damon fog?)

Anyway...I got sucked into this show like everyone else, and the third season took us all on this insane roller coaster, leaving us going "WHAT?" I seriously can't wait to see what happens this next season.  A part of me hopes that Jeremy will come back and they'll axe Bonnie because she's just there when it's convenient. I think the biggest question is: Will Elena feed? I'm thinking HECK YES! But they'll probably drag it out way longer than necessary. Overall, I just need more Damon in my life and that wish will be fulfilled the day AFTER my birthday on October 11th. Woo hoo!! Best belated gift ever? I THINK SO!

What do you think will happen this season?
