My Thoughts on Today
I finished exactly what I set out to read today and that made me happy! I was a bit busy so I was surprised I actually made my goal! I really enjoyed both stories!

Challenges

One True Pairing
Hosted by: Infinite Ink

"For this challenge, I want to hear all about your favorite literary OTP.  Tell me why you ship them.  Tell me how perfect they are for each other.  Vent about how frustrating it is that the author paired them with other people.  Give me proof about why they are actually canon, but nobody knows.  I want to hear it all."

I've never really been the OTP type but I'll give this a shot. My couple that I'm picking is one that I think is absolutely perfect for each other and they are one of my favorite-ist couples ever!

Sean O'Conner and Emma Malloy
from A Heart Revealed by Julie Lessman
It's really hard to put into words this couple's perfectness for each other if you haven't read any of the books! They just fit together so perfectly and since they do end up together there's not much else I need to say!

Book Spine Poetry 
Hosted by: My Little Pocketbooks

"Take a minimum of 3 books put them in a pile to make a poem."


Forbidden Secrets
Hidden Places
Nowhere to Turn
No One to Trust
Until I Found You
