I love your Tips and Tricks, they are a great help when trying to figure out this blogging stuff. I can't wait to read Ever After. I think it is next on my tbr, at least I hope it is, I'll be having dinner with Kim on Thursday, so I want to be able to talk about the book!

What a fun cover for Love is Blind. I like it. I downloaded Inhale a while back but haven't read it yet. I hope this week is drama free, it's been insane.

5 reviews this week, you are officially my HERO. I don't know how you do it. Also, you picked up Wraith. I've had this one for awhile, and it looks so INTERESTING, but I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Gotta love those freebies.

Well chica I am about to add a cape and fly..cause the week ahead is 6 reviews and all of February has a weekly avg of 5 to 6 reviews..oh yeah Mama Caffeinated didn't say "no" to arc's..LOL All I can say is thank God I read ahead because I am reading a book for the second week of February now of which I have all but this one read and reviewed already....thankful March returns to normal with 2 arc's a week to read ! It is my own darn fault as I desperately wanted to read all of the ARC's in my pile..bwahahaha! My poor hubby might not get fed all month! To make matters worse did you see all the pre-orders in my books purchased this week that came in....grrr..I plan to read Ever After tomorrow or die trying! *facepalm*

I'm so glad you'll be reading Sealed with a Curse, I liked it A LOT! Also, Fiery Hot Reads is starting. I'm having Stacia Kane over on Wednesday to talk about Chess and Terrible and I'm insanely excited about it.
What a great week. Enjoy your books. :)

I have heard so many good things about that Cynthia Hand series! I'm going to have to check it out one of these days -- I'm not really into angels, but I might have to overlook that. And On Dublin Street looks super good! I hope you enjoy it, and all your other reads!

Weather Witch looks really good. This is the first I am seeing of it. I will have to check it out. I thought I did so good this week with not taking review books, but once I sat down to make my post I saw I had more books than I thought.

I can't wait to see what you thought about Scent of Darkness, it was a really interesting (but good) read for me. But it seems to be one of those books you either love or hate.
