I'm looking forward to the small extension! And I'm very much looking forward to your interview about Level Two! :D

I need like the most perfect Dystopian book ever (I'm actually thinking of picking up Withered, today since I've heard SUCH good things about it) since my link that I submitted was for Possession and I was sort of "eh" on it. Have I mentioned lately that I don't want Dystopian August to end? I feel like a totally creepy stalker but your DA posts have been my favorite on my reader all month. Sigh. September, come she will.

Pam (@iwriteinbooks) said...

Oh and I'm OF COURSE pumped about the interview for Level Two!!

Donna said...

Just making sure you picked up the ASHES pre-order contest! :)

I finished Ready Player One and am surprised at just how much I liked it. I think you'll like it too.

I'm excited that it's going until the end of the week! Thanks for linking to my review - I loved Ready Player One so much!
