Hex Hall
by Rachel Hawkins
pg. 104

Jenna lowered the bag, a smear of blood on her chin.  "Midnight snack.  I....I figured you wouldn't be back for a while," she said softly.  The red slowly faded from her eyes......
"Don't worry about it," I said.  "Hey, werewolves gotta drool, vampires gotta eat..."
She laughed before picking up the blood bag and shyly asking, "Do you mind if I..."
My stomach clenched again, but I made myself smile and siad, "Knock yourself out."

    By the way, your mini-challenge entry is a WINNER. *thumbs up*

  3. I like books
    I really do.
    Books with stories
    And pictures, too. (author unknown)

    Enjoy all the people you meet and places you go today.

    That's quite an excerpt by the way!

  4. Your mini-challenge entry cracked me up!

    Readathon! Readathon! Rah rah rah!
    Readathon! Readathon! Rah rah rah!
    Readers got the books
    I’ve got a cheer
    You get to read all day
    I know you’ll persevere
