  5. Sorry I didn't come sooner
    Thanks for nominating me
    It's just I get distracted very easily and start doing other things and then I remember there was something I didn't finish... well, it's chaos, I need to get organized. Hopefully next month will be easier and I'll do one thing at a time.
    My cousin has recommended me the fallen series but I just haven't gotten around to them yet, I have the books on my TBR list.
    I know, I so want a Roswell Movie at least, since they wont bring the series back. I should check the Lux Series then, maybe I'll like it.
    Thanks on the theme, I didn't know how to get a design so I had to start drawing, I've never been good at it but figured it was better than having nothing. I wanted it to be unique
