  1. Omg I’m so glad you put that Jenny Lawson book up there!! I mentioned the sequel. OMG SHE IS SUCH A HYSTERICALLY GOOD WRITER. XD I need to read her first book yet, but I’m definitely going to (despite kinda being creeped out by the taxidermy, but whatever. Humour = A+.)
    Here’s my TTT!

    It’s on my list too! *high five*

    I now HAVE TO read “Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging” after reading that excerpt. Too good.
