  19. Shades of Earth!!! Cool!!! I'm still waiting for my pre-ordered copy to come from The Book Depository, which is a little annoying, but so worth it. I am hoping to read something by Gayle Forman soon - everyone seems to loves anything by that author, which is awesome! And I love the Touching the Surface swag - I got a sawg pack and signed book with a ton of swag like you, a couple of months ago! It's awesome! Great haul!!!
