Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have won Jennifer's giveaway over at Crazy Shenanigans!!!! She was nice enough to send me two great books, Dead Until Dark and Living Dead in Dallas!
I've actually seen these books on a few other blogger's reading lists and I have been pretty excited to check them out... there is only one thing getting in my way...

My growing stack of books!
For those of you who personally know me, you know that I am not a HUGE reader. I like to read, and once I start a book I am hooked, but I am really bad at making time to read, thus resulting in it taking me about 6-8 months to finish a book - no joke. Which explains why I have such a traffic jam of books piling up on my desk. I am currently reading Sarah Dessen's Lock and Key which is pretty good. Her books are really easy reads and are very teenager-ish but I still like them :)

Here are the rest of the titles in the stack:
Of course Dead Until Dark and Living Dead in Dallas!
The Time Traveler's Wife
Pretty Is What Changes (a gift from my friend Katie!)
Just Listen
and Asking for Trouble (which has been sitting on my shelf for at least 3 years haha)

You have no idea how excited I am to finish all of these books! But I just can't help buying more! Whenever Josh and I go in to Barnes and Noble I just can't help but go crazy! I know one day I will get to them all, so that is how I justify it haha.

But for now, I will keep chugging through my pile and hopefully I can write a review of the books I won on the giveaway!

Thanks Again Jennifer!!

I won a book on a giveaway by Jen Lancaster. It was so good I bought two more of her books and a Sophie Kinsella book not to mention I have two Nicholas Sparks books to read too. Oh and I won another giveaway too. But with school and work and a husband and a dog I haven't been able to find time.

I loved the Time Travler's wife!! Definitly better then the movie!! Im sure my parents will be buying candy corn for this time of year!! So when I visit I will get my fill!!

I'm the same way. Once I get into a book, I can hardly put it down. But finding the time to actually READ is tough.

Great blog! :)

I've read 1-5 of the Sookie Stackhouse novels and I LOVE THEM! Time Traveler's Wife was good once it got going. And I have Just Listen on my To-Be-Read shelf, too :)

Don't feel bad! I have a huge stack of books waiting on me. Literally there's about 20 books stacked up. Glad you got them though!

Congrats on winning the giveaway and getting the new books! I go through phases where I'm a complete bookworm and then things come up and I don't read for awhile. This summer was tough, but I hope to catch up on my ever growing must read list this fall. I want to read The Time Traveler's Wife too!

Try to delete me and then re-add me. That has worked for other followers. Sorry its such a pain.
