I really enjoyed Dark Companion! It is mysterious...I have it up on Wednesdsy. I am curious about that series by Alma Katsu. That cover is stunning. Hazelnut coffee would be lovely, thanks! Enjoy your Sunday, Kimba :)

The Reckoning looks awesome! Is it the second book in this series? I still need to read the first one!

I've been meaning to start Dark Companion, thanks for reminding me. Angel Eyes was something that ended up on my DNF pile, I just couldn't get into that book, it was a little heavy on religon and that's not my style of reading but hopefully you'll enjoy it.

I've heard a lot about Angel Eyes so I hope you can tell me how good/bad it is! :P
Dark Companion looks like a great read :)

Can't wait to see what you thought of Sandcastle Girls...I am on the fence about picking that one up! And going by covers alone your two new books are lovely!

I bought This Is Not a Test too - and read Slow Summer Kisses. :) I just love the cover of that Alma Katsu, I've been dithering over whether or not to buy it. I hope you review it so I can make up my mind. lol

I've heard mixed things, too, about Angel Eyes so I'll have to see what your consensus is on that one. And that's super cool you got a finished copy of Dark Companion! Is that a nice gift for you or what??? I see that happen a lot and have had that offered to me but not sure why a publisher does that...

Have a great reading week!!!
