  5. Netgalley have some awesome books up at the moment. I just grabbed 3 today.looking at your photo, is Angelfire really huge or is If I Stay really small, because there looks to be a huge difference in height unless it's just the angle of the picture. Enjoy your books!

  19. I'm jealous of everybody who has Dearly, Departed. And I'd actually forgotten about Angel Fire! How could I? The first book was great, but so many other books since then have pushed it from my mind. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it.
