  1. I seen Lipstick in Afghanistan in your list - that is one I am really curious about. Have a good week!

  2. Looks like you have some great reads! Have a good week reading :)

  3. Wow! That is a great list of books!! Hope you have a great week!! Happy Reading!!


  4. I received for review Expiation by Greg Messel from Author Solutions.

  5. You have a lot on your plate, you need to pace yourself. (((hugs))) The titles all sound so good!!!


  6. Good luck getting through your reviews! I have a long list too.

    Research and wishlist books make up the bulk of my reading last week. Here's what I'm reading this week.

  7. Wow! I have a question, do you plan to write reviews on all of the books you read or only on the ones that are sent for review or a combo? I always write reviews for my review books, and I do write some reviews for my personal books, but many of my personal books never get a review due to time constraints. You got a lot done, though!

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
