Congrats on becoming an Avon Addict!

Great haul this week, I am loving the cover of The First Lie, I think it has a bit of a shabby chic flare to it.

I just read Ann's post, it completely bummed me out, and find her treatment hard to fathom. Thanks for sharing.

I was going to apply for the Avon addict thing but even though I love a lot of Avon books I find myself reading much more YA so I decided not to. I have Crown of Thorns on it's way to me and I'm SO excited to read it!

Thanks for mentioning the read a thon!

I have Golden Girl but when I went to pick it up I discovered it's the 2nd book so I guess it'll sit and wait until one day when I get (and then read) the 1st one.

Looks like a great week planned!
