An Ambuzzador, cute. Congrats.

I really have to try Reisz's books, I keep hearing such wonderful things about them, but they are out of my comfort zone too.

Nice collection as always!

I hope you enjoy being an Ambuzzador! I think it's a cool program and enjoyed when I was chosen to help promote Starters. You have had a super busy week on the blog and I can't wait for your reviews next week, especially Mystic City. I hope you have a good week Kimba and good luck on the readathon!

I loved The Siren! It's not usually something I would read, but once you start, you cannot stop!
And I'm so glad you have Amanda Stevens The Prophet! I love that series. Happy reading!

Great week and thanks for visiting our blog! I really loved your review of pretty when she dies and I think I'm going to have to give Frater's books a second chance. Fraterfest looked AWESOME and I'm sorry I wasn't on top of things enough to participate.
