TGIF at GReads! 
This Friday's Question:
Gateway Books: Which particular books opened you up to a new genre? 

Ooh, fun question! The first one that comes to mind is dystopian: I was wary of the genre. I thought it wouldn't be my style. Until I read Divergent by Veronica Roth. And then Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Another good book that got me in the mood for dystopian, but isn't exactly the typical dystopion (well, from what I've read) is Perception by Heather Cashman.


It's Follow Me Friday over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read! This weeks question is....
Today's Question is something new, an activity. We want to see what you look like! Take a pic with you and your current read! Too shy? Boo! Just post a fun pic you want to share. 


Well, I'm afraid that you might have to wait until tomorrow for me to post a photograph of me with my current read because I have my nightly face mask on and if you looked up the definition of hideous, my mug would be in the description. But I'll share a photograph of me looking normal...


but....


Since Shellie asked, OKAY!


I'm reading Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready! It's good! And the shirt I'm wearing DOES IN FACT SAY AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL! Bwuahahahaha!

  1. Ya know I didn't think I would like dystopian that much either but I do after reading a couple of them. You should have put your face mask pic up LOL

  38. You're beautiful! But, of course, I am biased for brunettes in glasses, being one, myself! When you get to be my age, you hide from any and all pics, so keep snappin' away while you can. :D

    Heard about your blog from my friend DeAnna (SacredM00n). Nice to meet you!

  41. Heard a few good things about Wicked. Love the pic I think the masks gives it that extra something compliment. Cuz I could do it unless maybe on a dare.
