    Singing, in my family, is a daily thing. Literally, my friends like to call me the music library because I know so many songs that they are sometimes astonded. I even know some French songs and even one in Portuguese. They always listen to try and understand what I’m talking about, but being a native French, I speak to fast for them, so its really funny when they look at me like I’m crazy. You’re video was really funny, and i always get sidetracked like that!!! Thanks for te amazing chance to win an ARC of Beauiful Darkness, I CANT WAIT FOR IT!!!!!

    I love these kind of random speed rounds. They always make my day. =D
    The little poem I’ve always carried around is the one I learned is sixth grade. It wasn’t a famous one, but it’s just stuck with me.
