So many amazing books Kimba! I'm excited for your reviews especially for The Madmans Daughter, Devoured and Fallen too Far.

I hope to catch up on all your posts on Boxing Day, I've been running around like a headless goose this past week so my blog hopping has been limited.

I hope you and your family have the most wonderful Christmas celebration xx

I love the package from Random House! That's awesome! Lots of kissing or nearly kissing on covers this week. ;)
I'm curious about The Madman's Daughter. I'm not sure if I want to read it or not. I guess I need some reviews first.

Ha ha - sorry to be grabby. I want that book SO much. I got approved on Edelweiss but for some reason couldn't download it. But another blogger told me that it's now on NetGalley -- happiness! Hoping I get approved. Blackbeard was my favorite fairy tale. (I know -- I was a very weird kid.)

Looks like you've had a great week. Congrats on the party being a success! Thanks for stopping by my SP. Oh and I definitely suggest picking Code Name Verity back up. I wasn't sure I'd like it either, but I ended up really enjoy it. But then again, I was hooked from the very beginning!

I received The Madman's Daughter this week too and am nearly finished with it. I love the Random house package. it is always fun when they get a little creative. I still have to read Fallen.
A big congrats to your daughter and I hope that you enjoy the holiday with your family.

As always, thanks for hosting.

Strands of Gold and Bronze looks like something I would be interested in reading, but I'm going to wait for your review before I start it. Also, the surprise box from Random House is really awesome! Hope you enjoy your haul, Kim! I might be missing from the blogosphere too until next year! So, have a great holiday! :)

Ooooh very nice! Envious of the Strands of Bronze. I was rejected when I requested it. And it looks like Netgalley changed things so you cannot request multiple times! What's up with that?

Very nice haul! Lovely way of getting the Fallen books like that! I've never gotten special packages like that from the publisher, they are always so cool to see though!

Happy Reading!

Here's my STS

Have a GREAT weekend!
