Classics Retold Sign Up: Pride & Prejudice retellings

I also created The Random # Survey as a fun way to show off what books you have on your shelf.  Anyone can do it.  You just pick a number.  Count that many books on your shelf.  When you land on your number use that book to answer the question then keep counting until you get to your next book and answer the next question.  It's a lot of fun to read everyone's answers!

What happened this month?
1. My big sister from my sorority had her bridal shower!
2. I ate out for the first time in 9 months and didn't die.
3. Saw my brother in law perform at a benefit concert for a local theater.
4. Found some awesome used bookstores with my cousin.
5. Went to one of my best friend's baby shower!
6. Saw The Mortal Instruments movie (LOVED it! Except the ending was terrible)

Seriously Series Update:
 I started yet another series...Obsession by JLA is part of a series.  Did you know that?  I didn't!  I also started the Eve Trilogy, Reboot, Monument 14, and Across the Universe.  Ooops.

Favorite quote from a book I read in June? 
Hopeless by: Colleen Hoover 
“And while I could sit here and feel sorry for myself, wondering why all of this happened to me..I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to wish for a perfect life. The things that knock you down in life are tests, forcing you to make a choice between giving in and remaining on the ground or wiping the dirt off and standing up even taller than you did before you were knocked down. I'm choosing to stand taller. I'll probably get kicked down a few more times before this life is through with me, but I can guarantee you I'll never stay on the ground.”
