I am jealous that you have In a Fix! I have The Ravenous Dead, too - I loved the first book in the series!

I hope you have a blast on your cruise!

I haven't read any Sarah MacLean before--will have to add her to my list. And lucky you getting Shadow of Night. It looks like everyone wants to read this one! I still need to read A Discovery of Witches.

Great set of books this week! In A Fix sounds pretty good! I'm gonna have to definitely check that one out. Oooo HERE!! I really, really enjoyed that one! And free in Amazon! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! It was hard for me to be unplugged when I went away for a couple of weeks, but after a day or two, it didny even phase me. It felt good! lol

Well, I think we are all in agreement. You are a busy woman, that we envy because you are going on a cruise. Take lots of pics and post your favorites, please. I'll have to live through you, cuz, there is no cruise in my future. :-)

Seers, In a Fix and The Ravenous Dead look like my cups of tea. I hope you enjoy them all and can't wait to here how wonderful (or not) they all are :)

Here is my weekly round up

I hope you have a fantastic time on your cruise! I've never been on one, but I'd love to someday.

Can't wait to hear what you think of Struck. It looks amazing!

In a Fix sounds amazing. I've never read about a human chameleon before. I'm adding it to my tbr list.

Enjoy your books! :)

Oooh I cruise!! That sounds lovely, I really hope you enjoy it! I've never been on one but I would really like to I think. I'm going to check out your reviews of Lies Beneath and Abraham Lincoln, I've read and reviewed both so I'm curious to see what you though. Can't wait to see what you think of Struck, I've been hearing good and bad things about it.

Sweet! I hope you enjoy the cruise. I don't think I could do one for 10 days, I start feeling trapped. So now we know where I WOULDN'T go if zombies attacked.

At June 10, 2012 at 2:25 PM , Blogger Bea said...

I am still so jealous of your cruise. I will miss you while you're gone!

I need to check out your review of Abraham Lincoln; I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the concept of him as a vampire hunter. I agree with many of the others, In A Fix, looks very interesting. I'll wait for your review.

Ooh! A cruise! I'm jealous. I can't wait to hear what you think of A Rogue by Any Other Name. I've been wanting to read that one for a while. Thanks for all your lovely comments on m blog! I started following you by email today. :-)

At June 10, 2012 at 8:08 PM , Blogger Shooting Stars Mag said...

Ooh, a cruise sounds one. I don't know what I'd do without the internet for that long, but I think it would be nice to get away for a bit, so I hope you have a blast!!

Looks like you had a great week. I always love these wrap-ups. I'm off to check out some of the links. Thanks for sharing!

Congrats on your win! I have a couple of books in my haul, that are similar to yours. In a Fix looks interesting and is new2me, I'm off to GR to look it up, right now!

Have a great week!!

Kimba, enjoy your vacation, I like your line-up. I just reviewed In A Fix for LibraryJournal. I'm excited to see what you think. I also have Shadow of Night and have for quite a while but since I'll be doing a Q&A w/Deborah on release day I'll hold off

I envy you your cruise. It took about three days to settle down and just read, and then, it was awesome! Now we're talking about the trans-Atlantic cruise, just to get away. But not sure we can.
Penguin must have released Shadows of Night to everyone post BEA!
Thanks so much for stopping by my STS.

Wow...a ten day cruise?! Enjoy! ^_^ Can't wait to read your thoughts on STRUCK as well. Looks good. Happy reading!
