  1. AWW, HANA!! I’M BLUSHING!! ❤ I'm so glad you like my blog, honestly that just makes my day. Cake for you!!💕😊 And YAY I'm so glad you're a fan of The Lunar Chronicles. (By the way, your Cress cover is absolutely amazing!! I think it's better than the UK version for sure.) Thorne and Cress are just the cutest ship of ever. I also laughed a lot with Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. 😂 Some of the humour was really weird?!? But still hilarious.

    I hope you have a wonderful 2017!!

    • Yeah 2016 is amazing year for me. ✨✨ Thank you so much for your kind words, Kelly 😊😘 Amen.. I hope 2017 will be epic year for you, too ♪\(*^▽^*)/\(*^▽^*)/


  4. I would quite like to read What I Talk About When I Talk About Running — but first should probably read What We Talk About When We Talk About Love! I also really, really, really need to pursue the Lunar Chronicles! Everyone’s talking about Cress and Thorne and … I need to get in there!
