Today's post is one that the three of us had a lot of fun putting together! It's definitely a silly post, but I'm sure you'll love finding out our answers to the these pressing questions.

  1. With the OR game, I'd go contemporary, Jennifer Echols (I've read one Dessen so far and wasn't a fan but I'd like to give her another go). Oh and without a doubt I would marry Ian - sa-woon! *dreams* (And that's not just because I don't know the others well, he just makes me heart go to mush. I mean those dimples, those cheekbones, that skin and he cares about the environment and seems lovely and oh, now I'm just depressing myself... Fun post!

  2. Okay, clearly I need to go investigate Hardy, and Lisa Kleypas's contemporary books. I've loved her historicals but haven't gotten into her contemps.
