  1. Yay! I visited both (I hadn't been around Nina's in awhile, mostly just on Goodreads; it was refreshing. And I found a book to add to the list!)
    Commented on both.
    Waffling between Steamed and O Juliet, after reading your review... Hmm...

    Ps, I have been going Lost In Austen CRAZY lately. How many times can a person watch 1 movie. And it's not short, either. The people at Netflix probably think I'm a lonely old cat lady.

  2. I Visited both Valentines and left a comment on one of their posts!

    I would love to win Breathing by Cheryl Renée Herbsman :)
