Weekend Reads

Here's what we're reading this weekend: 

Big thank you to Penguin for sending a copy of Smoke by Dan Vyleta.
I love the synopsis of this one.  And not only did it come with a pretty bookmark,
but it came with the cutest tin of CANDY! You know what that means?

My teacher assigned Ben-Hur.
Ben-Hur did NOT come with Candy.
I call foul, sir.

  1. Mckenzie, there use to be candy called Ben-Hur. It was a black licorice made with anise. They were bite size. I think your teacher should have provided candy.

    1. I've never heard of that candy! I think so, too, Ms. Kimba -- but maybe not black licorice ;-)


  2. Your mom should share her candy with you... just sayin lol. Look at those pretties you added though! I am ridic excited for Lotus and Thorn. And those ribbon bookmarks are awesome! Love you both!

    1. She did share :-) Lotus and Thorn does sound awesome! We love YOU <3


  3. LOL - aww, no candy. Hope mama shared an you both enjoy your books.

    1. Thank you, Ms. Christy -- she did share, lol <3


  4. Oh girls! Look at those amazing books and the candy ;P Ha! Hope you ladies had a wonderful week and enjoyed some good reading! I'm trying to make it through Walk the Edge, it's amazing, just not enough time to sit down and read :(

    *HUGGLES* <3

  5. Nice collection of reads here!!

    Mckenzie, I loved your note about "Ben-Hur" not coming with candy. Too funny! Of course your mom shared, which is what moms do!

    I've never heard of "Smoke", but the synopsis is totally fascinating, so I'm adding it!

    I already have "The Rose and the Dagger" on my TBR. I'm going to add some of the other titles as I check them out.

    Siunds like you guys had an AWESOME weekend, with all these great reads!!!

    Hugs to you both!! :)
