I am totally on Team Peeta. Gale is just a good friend and he had his chance. Peeta really showed he cared.

....and since picked a Peeta lover, and I am #TEAMGALE all the way, here's my pick...and because she totally cracked me up, oh and she also said she'd kill Peeta if I didn't pick her, and even though I think Katniss and Gale will end up together.  I still love Peeta, and I have to save him from Livia's wrath!


@ReadingTeen Kill Peeta, easy peasy! I think he's Bella male version: requires to be saved all the time! hahaha I'm team GALE!!! =)

@ReadingTeen Gale didn't even had his chance, the poor guy!

@ReadingTeen Peeta sounds like something to eat, like chips or something: "Hey, bring me some peetas, please!" lol

  2. Commented on the review. It sure sounds like something I'd kill to read (supernatural books are my heroin!) and I can't argue with a book whose main character sounds so great. I've found if the person whose story the book follows is likeable, the book tends to follow suit!

  13. It was a great review but it didn't seem like a book I would really appreciate... I love witty and intelligent female characters but the story doesn't look like something different from so many others out there.

    As I said in the other comment box, I'm just not excited about Paranormals these days. =( But your review was glowing and went into specijics about what makes Paranormacy work--and so I trust that it will be a very good read.

  18. I loved Paranormalcy. The interesting thing that I'll say about this one is that the guy, although a hot paranormal, is not 1. Stalkerish, 2. Weird (outside the paranormal part) or 3. the freaky outcast that she's been dreaming of (literally) forever.

  22. Commented on the Paranormalcy page. :)

    I'm always hesitant about trying paranormal romance novels... espeically if there's a lot of hype. I'm always afraid that the book won't live up to it. But I may have to snag a copy of this one and see for myself. I don't think there's a bad review out there of this book. I've only heard good stuff.

  24. I left this comment on the post:

    I read paranormal but I am not that great a fan however you description of the heroine makes me want to try the book.

    Being a pendant however should the hero not be called Borrow and not Lend ?

  28. +1 I'm already following your blog, commented on the Paranormalcy post. It's definitely the kind of a book that I'd be interested in reading, because I like the plot, and I've heard so many good responses about it. So now I want to see for myself if it's really that good.
