You had a great month and you definitely read some good books.

You had a good month! Love Wicked Lovely by the way.

I read a lot of YA in March so I read a lot more books than usual. I'm no where near caught up on my reviews but I am pleased to say that I'm finally reviewing 2009 reads!

You are a reading machine! That is great! I am finding that I have less and less time to read with a little one at home...

Nice wrap up. The compulsive organizer in me loves these type of posts. And I am the world's slowest reviewer I think ... I still have five or six books waiting to be written about!

And you completed three challenges already ... wow.

Wow! Lovely shot!
I feel like cupping it in my palms.
