Sunday Salon: Reading, Read, To Read #16

Happy Sunday! It's been a busy week for picking up library books. Did you see my loot?! One of the many reasons I love the library is that I get a chance to read books that I normally wouldn't. Like the ever-fun Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford. I'll be finishing that one up very soon.

It has been a great week for surprises. I discovered Airhead and Being Nikki by Meg Cabot. These books weren't what I was expecting at all. And I ended up just loving them! I can't wait for the third book to come out now!
