Hi there! I'm so excited to see RIVAL on your list. Thanks for including me - I hope you love it!

Gabrielle Carolina said...

Elise- the book will be featured on this weeks IMM, I get to review it through NetGalley!

Sara- I am beyond physced for Rival, I love books centered around music. I use to be an actress and I had Rivals. I think this book and I will really hit it off. Let me know if you would like to do an author interview, or giveaway, we could have tons of fun discussing a common interest.

Blessings to you both, you are going to make fabulous Debs!

Ashley Hope Pérez said...

Oh, this list looks mighty tasty! Thanks for including What Can't Wait. I'm dying to know what the color-coding means (not for the months, but for some of the actual titles). I hope pale orange doesn't stand for started-but-decided-not-to-finish. :)
