Thank you Dave and Jacky!

Oh my goodness thank you so, so much Lisa! You rock!! :)

Crazy Katie


  1. HAHA! Awesome IMM! I totally get cha on book covers! Like, they just have to match because when they go on your shelf, they just have to go together, lol! :) Like they're a part of a series, haha!

    So obsessed it's crazy! <3
    YAAAAAY PDMafia! :)

    HAHA! My voice gets soooo high when I get excited too! Whenever I talk about books it gets like that! *___*


    Lisa Desrochers - YOOOOU ROCK!

  2. Yay! You got Original Sin AND Where She Went! You don't know how jealous I am right now! ;p Happy reading! :D

  3. You have some awesome books.

    Original sin that is too freaking cool. I definitely can't wait til that comes out.

    You are so energetic in the videos it's cool.

  4. I am the same way about book covers! There has been a trend lately in production for matte cover art that more authors/publishers are going with. My "The Faerie Path" books went from matte with spot varnish to all glossy and I was totally aggro'd.

    Just from your vlog I definitely want to read "Intrinsical", but I was intrigued enough about the rest that I'm going to look them up :0)

    My only criticism is that you were cut off a few times and I was like "...but what was she going to say???" *L0L*

  5. Momo you rock! I'm so glad your voice gets all high too and that you need your series to match! PD Mafia unite! lol!

    Haha aw thanks Cicely! :D Have a great weekend!

    Thanks AngelicNytmare!

    Hey Jai! I like glossy better! Well, like I want the series to match just like you do! lol!
    Yay! We'll totally have to discuss Intrinsical!
    Haha I'm so bad at editing, I had to cut off a ton (it was 24mins in all! lol) I kept rambling! lol

  6. Aaah, Borders can't go out of business! The closest non-Borders bookstore is half an hour away!

    Yaaay, Original Sin! You have every right to be totally freaking out with excitement! :D
    *giggles about the surprise* Lisa is the best!

  7. YAY Katie. Awesome books this week bud. I really really really need to buy Personal Demons but I don't have the money until later on this month -_- I'm so happy for you bud. Have fun reading.

  8. I know right Lauren! It would be such a sad day!
    haha yes! Lisa rocks!:D

    Thanks Akasha! I can't wait for you to get PD!!

  9. You are too funny ;p But, I have to hate you now... My answer to the interview question Which book do you wish you wrote? is If I Stay, and I would KILLLLLLLL to get my hands on Where She Went. I LOVE Adam and I'm psyched that it's from his POV.

  10. I love your enthusiasm! Seriously, how cool is that, that the author sent you an ARC and all that awesome swag?!

  11. and I thought my mailbox was good! Original Sin???? Thtas like a gaziilions times better than anythin i got ;) enjoy and I defninitely going to read your review!

  12. You go girl! Momo said she would lend me hers or I would be insanely jealous!!
    You make me wanna do a vlog :)

  13. Lol. Borders is my best friend to! We can be best friends now lol. I really hope they stay around. I love going there cause the coupons I get save me alot and I'm not signed up for B&N! And Momo was telling me about PD the other day. I started it but had to postpone it and he was like "WHy!?!?!?" But i'm gonna finish soon. And great books! I absolutely loved Bleeding Violet and Swoon! They were two of my favs from 2010. I saw Intrinsical for the Best I've Read and i HAVE to read it now! Enjoy the books!

  14. HA HA, you're so funny! :)AWESOME IMM Katie, Congrats on getting the ARC of Original Sin & all the swag! Hope you enjoy all your books and Happy Reading!!!

  15. I got If I Stay this week too, I can't wait to start it!

    Great haul this week, I hope you enjoy all of your books! :)

  16. Awesome books! I really want to read Bleeding Violet and Intrinsical! And I have Swoon but haven't read it yet. Hope you enjoy all your books! :)

  17. -Aww Lisa! LOL! Thank you so much!
    -Hi Aylee I know right!? haha
    -Thank you so much BadassBookie!
    -Thanks Brandi! You so should do a vlog!

    Thanks so much Shannon! :)

    Thank you Morgan! Once you read them let me know what you think of 'em! :)

  18. hey, katie, I love your blog. Its so cool, (im extremely jealous of your awesome graphics), so i decided i had to give you the stylish blog award!

    you can grab the button and check out the post here!

    :D- Dana

  19. FYI Katie, is currently selling Personal Demons for 50% off and since you haven't stopped raving about how great it is, I bought myself a copy! :P

  20. Great IMM Katie. I must must must get Personal Demons soon! If I Stay also looks so good. So much to read! Enjoy your books :)

  21. I know what you mean about book covers not matching! My copy of Beautiful Creatures is shiny, but my Beautiful Darkness, isn't and it's so annoying! ]= You're not weird, I do it to :L
    Great books, I think I'm definitely going to have to buy Personal Demons now that I've watched that video... Happy reading!

  22. So many pretty covers for your shelf!
    l know what you mean about the spines not looking similar!
    Enjoy your books =)

  23. *rocks out to Where is My Mind by The Pixies* haha great song choice! ;)

    Amazing vlog! You're so funny haha. I really need to purchase If I Stay also and no worries because I am SO picky with book covers matching.

    Super jealous of Where She Went!

    Hope you have a great weekend as well Katie and enjoy! :)

  24. -Aw thank you so much Dana! :)
    -YAY! Shannon! You have to tell me what you think of it!
    -Hi Alice! You so have to read both of those books! They're both so awesome!
    -Hey Bella! YES! I noticed that too! I wonder what the third book's cover will be like!I'm so glad you're going to get Personal Demons! Yay!
    -Thanks Books for Company!:)
    -Haha thanks Michelle! I love that song too! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's super picky about covers! I hope you have a great weekend too! :)

  25. OMG Katie !!! You must have been so excited when you opened Lisa's package !!! I'm so jealous !! I really need to start reading Personal Demons !! I'll let you know what I thought about it ;)

  26. Great Vlog Katie!

    I also read and loved If I Stay.

    I don't want Borders to close either but the good thing about that is the crazy, blow-out everything must go sales they might have (hopefully).

    I've got Bleeding Violet on my current reads, but I haven't started it yet. Yea, I thought it said portobello too (hehehe), but it sounds disturbing and can't wait to get started.

    Happy reading!

  27. Looks like you had a great week! Happy reading, and enjoy ALL of those books!
    Check out my IMM Post.

  28. wow, where she went already?? that's awesome! i only just now ordered if i stay :)

  29. EPIC mailbox! I completely agree about the shiny-ness or lack there of in books. I have this theory that books that come through the mail, even besides being cheaper, are shinier and smell better. (Yes, I really like the smell of books.) I'm funny about book covers, too, lol.

    I heard that Borders might go out of business, too, and i absolutely can't believe it! Borders is more awesome than either B&N or Booksamillion, because they sell tons of book swag like t-shirts and posters and stuff... if I was a billionaire, I would buy the chain just to keep it from disappearing. *sob* Anyway, so many awesome books this week and I'm very jealous. Happy reading! :)

  30. Haha I had the exact same thoughts about the Meg Cabot Vanished bindups when I bought the second... I didn't like that it was matte instead of shiny, either!

    Borders might go out of business!?!?!? I didn't know that and that's really bad news because I go to Borders twice a week with their coupons and my Borders Rewards Plus membership. I don't know what I'm going to do!!! :-(

  31. I just LOVE your vlogs! They're always so hilariously amazing. Just thought I'd let you know. :)

    I totally know what you mean by that matte/shiny book contrast thing bugging you. I feel the same way. Hehe.

    Haha yeah portabella is a mushroom. :)

    OH MY GOSH YOU GOT WHERE SHE WENT?!?!?!?! SOOO JEALOUS!!!! Haha that is so exciting you are so lucky! I am dying to read it. I'll be looking for your review! :)

  32. Awesome books! This must have been your favorite IMM haha!

    I love the Vanished series, hope you'll enjoy it! And oh, I agree about the covers, they should have matched! And here is something: what will they do with book 5? Will they publish it alone? T_T

  33. Hey Ingrid! OMG you're so right! Now I'm dying to know what's going to happen with the 5th book!?! Hmmm
