  1. any book I mean they are book *o* @dark_chii_bsb and my favorite is Simon V/s the home sapiens agenda

  2. I recently finished Gatefather, by Orson Scott Card and I really enjoyed the world building, high quality writing, and the entertainment value. Unfortunately, it had it's faults, but I'm pretty sure it's the best book I've read lately. I am very excited, however, because I received ALL the books I asked for on my Christmas list (mostly your amazing recommendations). I think I have some really good reads coming up in the next few months!

    I am interested in Shadowshaper if I win. You can reach me at
