    1. omg. I LOVED Jumped In (I'm about to update the review and post it on my overhauled blog!) I just loved it so much. In fact, the arc of it is perched on my shelf of honor (full of my favs.)SO GOOD. If I'm not mistaken, I think I was the first to review it on GR. (crazy, right?) I chose it to be my 'J' post in my alphabet challenge (literally 13 days left, and six+ books to R&R.)I can't wait to get my hands on this one.
