Congratulations on getting a blurb in Envy!! That's so awesome! Also, I really, REALLY, liked The Host. But not everyone does. I need to do a re-read at some point as see if I STILL love it. Have a great week, Haley!

I really like the Host better than Twilight.
Enjoy your books.

I always look forward to your videos every week. Just so you know, I do read the quote pages in the front of books. I haven't seen you yet but hope I will soon!

I really really liked The Host. I am a fan of Twilight, but I have to admit that I enjoyed The Host more. I've also noticed that those who really liked The Host, were not twi-hearts, and vise versa. Congrats on being quoted!

The Host was so good! The first 100 pages are really boring and hard to get into but stick with it because it's sooo good =)I'm so jealous of the paperback of Envy! I loved the book your so lucy to have gotten the second book! I can't wait until it comes out. Oh and I always look at the praise! It makes the book so much better.

OMG, I am so thrilled for you getting a quote in Envy, I got the hardback copy for Christmas (after first seeing it on your blog) and I loved it, I cannot wait for Betrayal, they both have amazing covers!
