~ Love, Okapi and Rica Eat World ~


  1. Great books! I vote for reading the Graveyard Book first! I absolutely loved it!

  2. Thanks to your recommendation, I'm reading that right now! Great choice :)

  3. Glad to see you have recieved Before I fall! Love the blog!
    Okapi read the iron king
    Rita read Graceling

    Thats just my opinion though!

  4. haha looking forward to it!

  5. Thank you so much for Before I Fall! I started it as soon as it arrived, and so far, it's pretty much amazing. I hope to get up a review soon! I just finished Fire, so after the Gravedigger's Handbook, I'll get started on the Iron King.

    I've been trying very to get Rica to read Graceling. She's being fickle.

  6. I haven't read Graceling or Iron king yet, but I want to. I have stacks of books around the house and I lose them and my mom is always finding them under the couch or on top of the printer odd places like that:)

  7. Hahahah same! A few hours ago, I just did a book round up by scouting my house for stray novels. I found some in the most unusual places, like behind my tv and top of the microwave for instance. Now I have a huge stack sitting on my bed - I'm feeling OCDish so I'm going to put them on my bookshelf in the order of the color ahahah.

  8. Oh and I need to read the Iron King too! I won it from Nicole at Word for Teens, and I'm excited to start reading it.

  9. That is so funny that we do the same things. Although I am running out of room on my shelves and space in my room for more books.
