On My Wishlist

Hey everyone! It's EARLY on Saturday morning and that means that it's time for On My Wishlist, hosted by Book Chick City.

I just started participating in this meme thing-a-ma-bob last week and have completely fallen in love. One of my favorite things to do is read other blogs and then run over to and add books to my wishlist. There's something special about being number 19394379394888 in line for a book and then checking a few weeks, or months, later and seeing that you're now number 2, or better yet, that the book is on it's way! With an ever growing list, I think I'll be able to keep it fresh for ye'all!

So, here are my 3 wish list books for this week!
