  3. All of these books are new to me, but I hope you enjoy them. I've never seen Shameless, but I love binge watching series on Netflix. It is far more enjoyable than waiting a week or an entire summer for the next episode. I'm currently watching the Vampire Diaries that way.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS.
