Nice haul! The Girl with the Iron Touch looks awesome. I'll have to check out the series. Congrats on all the wins. Hope you get to enjoy them soon. And thanks for the reminder about turning back the hour. It slipped my mind.

Oh, and I recently finished Strands of Bronze and Gold. So tempted to see what you thought of it, but I need to write my review first. My feelings about it are still percolating.

Oh I need to get the latest Mercy Thompson, but might as well wait until I am ready to read it, maybe it will go down in price by then. I love Mercy! I am also reviewing Blue Ribbon Jalapeno Society and I have Carolyn guest posting. I am loving the book I am almost finished, so funny. I have Going Vintage coming up I think next week, hoping for a good read!

Awesome books this week!! Have you started Frost Burned yet? I was
sneaky, my library is slow on ordering it but I put it on reserve so as
soon as it comes in, I'm the first to read it - no stranger cooties :)

I have to read Jess Haines' books, too! So many truly great books this week!!!!!

No, turn your clocks ahead an hour, not back. Gotta spring ahead. I have The Undercurrent, but now I'm hesitant to read it because the cover looks so similar to The Murmuring. I really didn't like that one. Ooo you got lots of goodies from Entangled. Enjoy your books!

So many fantastic books Kimba & congratulations on your win! I have just finished Wait for You & I think it is amongst my faves in the NA genre, the main hero Cam was amazing!! I didn't realise Frost Burned had been released, I adore the Mercy Thompson series & I can't wait to read Undercurrent.

Have a great week & happy reading!! :)
