Okay, cupcakes. It's the beginning of yet another week. It also happens to be my finals week, since my district is majorly screwed up. So that sucks. At least today I happen to have off :)

So anyway, if I have to have finals (wish me luck!) at least I can do some happy-making with this week's Magic Monday. I love doing these fun giveaways and teasers every week. They are so much wonderful in my life.

Mind Games (Mind Games, #1)
Kiersten White
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: February 19, 2013
But the decision is made and I know I have to cross the street and finish what I've begun. Now. I can't plan it. Planning isn't safe–it begs for Seers to spy on you. I have to just go.

I like the sound of this one. Don't you? Yeah, I like to cut lines from the middle of action. It makes things for exciting for you and more fun for me :)

So, I'd love it if you'd read my Giveaways page before entering. Pretty, pretty please, okay, snowflakes? You guys are seriously the best. Okay, so here's a little  for this week.

Good luck, roses! You guys are seriously the best. Mwah! xx
