Good luck, everyone!

Sophie

  1. Ohhhh, Happy Birthday. But hey, maybe if it's your b-day Karma would be nice with you and you will ace the exam. ;) who knows? :))
    18 is a big age here, you are off age and supposedly and adult. Do you feel adulty?

    Ok, so I guess I'm in for entering.

  41. Hey Sophie! Congrats on the whole turning 18 thing! Sort of a big deal...I remember like it was yesterday when I turned 18. Granted that was only like 10 months ago. Thanks for having this contest! It's awesome that you are giving something away on your birthday. I guess if I could have any book from The Book Depository it would be either Mockingjay, Beautiful Darkness or Sisters Red.
