  5. Hahaha, that Vintage Social Networking is spot on! I don't know some of them, because I don't use them. Youtube made me laugh.

    That book for review looks interesting, I'll be checking your tweets to see if you approve :) Love the tittle.

    1. Did you like Vlad before you read them? I don't really like him from C&B's books but everyone said they re fantastic. they were SO cheap I just had to buy them!

    2. Yes, I love him in those books, he is more serious and deadly in this new series. Didn't like him like I used to but still good IMO.

      Let me know if you like it when you read them :)

    1. I think you would like that one Natalie. The multiple POV's were the only thing that took some getting used to but once you get used to it and meet all the characters it's great.

    I am just as weak as you, it doesn't matter how many books I own that I haven't read, I can't resist book sales.
