Sorry for quality, it was the best I could do.

Yes! My very first quote in a book! I am SO chuffed! It never entered my mind that something like this could ever happen from blogging when I first started, so I'm just over the moon that it has!

So I'm a pretty happy girl this week!


  1. Awesome mailbox! I think it's great that you were quoted in the book!

  2. Thank you! I'm just so happy! It's brilliant!

  3. Congrats on the quotes :) In fact, your being quoted in Fallen is the reason I found your blog!I saw the quote and even though I didn't like Fallen, I love the way you write your reviews so I followed ya :)

  4. Congrats on the quotes! I'm really excited to read Almost True and Linger. Enjoy!

  5. AtenRa - Oh my god, thank you so much! I really appreciate it! Wow, that's just so cool, thank you!

    Sophie - Thank you! I'm looking forward to Almost True. Not sure about Linger as I wasn't such a fan of Shiver, but I'll give it a go.

  6. Jo, I guess I never really comment but I would wish to congratulate the quotes in the books. I also recently had my first here in Brazil, and only those who have seen your name and opinion on the cover of a book knows the thrill.
    A further hit as Fallen.

  7. Thank you so much! I appreciate it! :) It's so cool :)

  8. Linger looks sooo good, I can't wait to read it.

  9. I didn't like Shiver, so I'm not sure if I'm going to like Linger either. I may give it a go though.

  10. Congrats on being quoted!

  11. Great new reads.

    Have a great reading week!

    My mailbox is here!

  12. Thank you! I look forward to reading them! :)
