An epic week, if I do say so myself. I've always been a Nook user. Nook + booklight = fun reading in the dark! And then, after I purchased an iPhone, I took advantage of the Kindle app, because there are always such great deals on Kindle books (not to mention April's awesome Fill Your Kindle posts always make me buy more.) But after two years, I grew tired of having to angle my booklight at the right angle so as to not blind my husband. Seriously, those Nook lights are bright. And I don't mind reading on my iPhone, but the light is kind of harsh.
So after talking to some of you on Twitter about getting the good old cheap Kindle vs. the Paperwhite, the latter won out. Obviously. Hello, soft glowing backlight! So when my parents asked what I wanted for my birthday, I opted for the lovely Paperwhite. A couple days later, it was delivered to my house and we've been inseparable ever since. Seriously, I don't even want to read anything unless it's on my new Kindle. Shortly after, I bought myself a pretty purple case that puts my Kindle to sleep when I'm not using it. I'm officially converted :)

This One Thing: I SWEAR I'll Do This Year... maybe...probably?
Jen reviews Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith and thinks it definitely earned the "wild" in the title.
Jen's Waiting on Meet Me at the River by Nina de Gramont and is WTFing at the fact that there's gonna be some Cher & Josh step-sibling love going on, but with GHOSTS. My mind is already blown.
Jen reviews Pivot Point by Kasie West and admits being totally wrong about DNFing. This one deserved the second chance!
Jen reviews Game by Barry Lyga and OMG MY BLOOD PRESSURE CANNOT HANDLE THIS.
Debra Driza stopped by the blog to answer some fun questions about MILA 2.0, the UFC, and drinking WD-40. (Haha, seriously though!)
Also, if you follow my This One Thing feature, I definitely cannot commit to just doing it on one particular day of the week. I'm just that unreliable, you guys. Hahaha, but it will be up sometime this week, if you care :)
