Thanks for reading!



  1. What??? No mushy romances? How do you get by? Those kind of books are so good for a light, one day read. Plus, they tug at your heartstrings (while you simultaneously roll your eyes at the sappiness and convenience of it all). Lol:

    LOVE the quotes you shared!

    1. Well, I don't like it when it's, "I'm in love with you becasue you are so hansome." But other romance I can (usually) do. But, when I read them it usually is in one day and I am rolling my eyes. :)

      Thank you! You can do this if you want to, I have been tagging you for so many things I thought you would be tired of me doing that.

      Thanks for your comment Elanor!!!

  2. Lovely answers Moviecritic!!
    I would love to do the tag. :)

    1. Thank you Rachel!
      Go ahead and do it! I would love to see your answers! :)


To comment, or not to comment? That is the question. Whatever you decide, I would love to hear from you!! I am always open to suggestions, advice, and any other comments! Even if you don't agree with me, I would love to hear from you as long as you keep the comment respectful and on subject. And, please, no swearing. I love comments on old posts!!
My computer won't let me leave comments, so it might take a few days, but I will reply!
