  1. Hi, I'm currently following your blog and have just added your button to my site! If you were to have a glance at my blog and follow me (if you wish to) it would make me really happy!

  2. That's great, thanks! It's so cool seeing my button on your blog. I'm already following your blog. :)

    I actually goofed and put the wrong url for my button, so the one you have on your site is my old button. It's fixed now if you want to re-grab it. I wouldn't have even noticed if it weren't for you, so double thanks!

  3. There are so many awesome looking books coming out thi next year! I'm o excited for them all - I'll probably go broke lol

  4. I know! They all look so great. I still haven't even finished posting up all the books I've found and want to read.

  5. Thinking about doing this challenge as well... but I'm nervous as I am with all challenges, what if I never complete it? I just don't want to fail, lol.

  6. Thanks for joining the challenge! Holy WOW look at that list! Good luck and happy reading!

  7. Aylee: I know what you mean. I'm a list person, though. If I have a list, then I have the urge to cross stuff off my list, and then I'm actually more likely to get something done. 12 is only one book a month, and I think you can start at any point in the year. That way you can hold off joining see in maybe June how likely you are to be able to finish and then join then if things look good.

    The Story Siren: Thanks for hosting the challenge! 2010's challenge looks like it's been a lot of fun. Hopefully I'll be able to make a dent in that list. :P

  8. This challenge sounds really fun. I enjoy new author's and LOVE young adult. You may have convinced me to join, I'm just afraid of getting in over my head, though.

  9. Haha, well, I'm totally not the person to provide a bit of reasonable advice to you when it comes to getting in over you head with books. I think my motto should be "Bite off more than you can chew!" as my 2011 list probably shows. :p

    Give me half a chance and I'll lead you down a dark path of more books than you can handle, but I promise it'll be a lot of fun!

  10. Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog :). I'm a few follower. Have fun with the challenge and good luck xD

  11. I updated it... but it's the same image... xD

  12. Hi Alice, thanks for the follow and the luck :)

    ComaCalm, it looks like the new one to me. Thanks for changing it (and adding it!)

  13. Hi! Great reading list -- we have some of the same books on our lists. I really am excited about this challenge -- it's my first time doing it!

  14. Hi Sarah! Thanks for stopping by and following. It's my first time and I'm really excited too! I'm going to go check out your list now. :)

  15. I'm really glad you're interested in The Goddess Test!! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. It was so fun to read all the different book titles -- I'm drawn to titles as much as I'm drawn to covers. :D

  16. Thanks for giving me a little more info on it! I love book titles too. They're they second thing I usually look at, after the cover. :P

  17. I love seeing The Near Witch on your list! :) Thank you!! I hope you enjoy it.


  18. Oh wow! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for writing a book I'm so eagerly anticipating! :)


It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
