Haley, you're adorable. :)

And you pronounced my name right! hehe. I pronounce it the way you said it first but it could really go either way. David says it both ways depending on who he's talking to. :-p Dork.

Can't wait to see your next video post!

Hi Haley
I hate doing vids too.
They sound so unnatural.
The Emerald Talisman I saw on goodreads.
Looks good.

I like the original cover of NightShade SOOO much better than the way they are going with the series now. It's all shimmery and pretty.

By the way, the Cinderella Ninja book sounds really cool with the alternate stories! I read a Goosbumps book like that once. The Goosbumps books are kinda eerie to read though, there really wasn't a great outcome option. haha.

Good video, I had little problems with english (at the beggining) but that's not your fault, just mine.:D Whatever.
You're actually almost cute in that video (sounds weird, haha, you just look like nice person.^^). And I really envy you those books.(: It's harder to get to them in my country, BUT at least we don't have that awful Wolfsbane cover.:D It looks like this in our country: I didn't read it yet... and well, if there's no Ren... It'll have to wait, huh.
Btw - biig sorry for mistakes.

Stephanie said...

Great video!!
I never heard of a book like The Cinderella Ninja but it sounds kinds interesting that you can choose which way. Ill have to check it out! Are there other books like that too?

Megan said...

Love the video!!
BTW-- was that Ren the tiger from "Tiger's Curse" behind you? haha... I couldn't help but notice it! :)

Kayleigh @ K-Books said...

Unknown said...

You are so cuuuuute! I love your blog, you got a great load of books this time around and I loved listening to all of your thoughts. I'm totally super crazy jealous of Wolfsbane (I agree about the cover, too!), Wildfire, Chime, Supernaturally, and Blood Magic. OMG! Those are books that I've been DYING to read.

And you'll totally have to let me know what you think of the Talisman. lol. :)

Haley @ YA-Aholic said...

Diana said...

Haley, you are so adorabblleee <3 you know, in a non stalked way :)haha! I am SOOOO jealous of your white tiger..... I would so name him REN and cuddle with him every night! Then I'd go out and find me a black stuffed one and name it Kishan :) Great video!


Unknown said...

Yeah, do that! There's another one that I was thinking looks really good, Eon. I almost got it for you too, but I wasn't sure if you'd like it or not. It's a bit on the sci-fi'ish side and I think possibly set in the future-ish! lol. ;)

Happy Reading, Guys! ;)
