  13. I really want to read My Life in Black and White. You have to wonder what kind of happy ending there could be. The Waiting Sky looks awesome too - tornado chasers are freaking crazy though. ;)

  15. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on My Life In Black & White. I'm going to put my review up tomorrow. It was hard one for me cause that book made me very angry. I hated her friends with a passion so my review is all over the place lol I teared up quite a bit during the book.
