  10. You're doing so great with the blog design, Lisseth! These newest ones are fabulous.

    I'm hearing great things about Poison. I hope you enjoy it. I have it on a wishlist and hope I can get it soon!

    I was not a fan of Alice in Zombieland. In fact, it was my least favorite read of 2012.

    Still a great haul! And I hope you enjoy them. :)
