Oh my gosh, you got two books I want soooo desperately: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and The 5th Wave. I hope they're both fantastic!

Ooh I'm so jealous you got Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! I've had my eye on that for what feels like forever. I'm glad you're feeling better and I hope you're 100% very soon. Can't wait for the Clean Sweep Challenge! :-)

Really looking forward to your thoughts on 45 Pounds and Between The Devil and The Blue Sea - both books I want to read as well. Congrats on 300,000 pageviews! What an awesome milestone! *hugs*

Glad you are on the mend. And you have The 5th Wave, I can't wait to read that one, sounds great and the early reviews are mostly positive. Looking forward to your take on it. I changed my IE settings but still can't comment on my computer, not to worry I can always use Chrome, plus I tend to mostly use my tablet anyway so not such a big deal. Thanks for looking for a solution though :-)

I thought I added my name to the challenge a long time ago, but I guess I didn't. Anyway I am all signed up. I hope to knock out a few but I have two sets of company coming in May and that always bites into the reading and blog. Anyway glad you are feeling better. Oh so jealous to see the Fifth Wave. I am dying to read that one!

I have never read Cremer, so not sure how strong her voice is in this..but Levithan's voice and flow are present.

I tried her Nightshade series, which most people really liked, I stopped after the first one. Never read anything by Levithan though.

dang, I really wish they would fix it. I tried IE on all my kids laptops and was able to access the blog and comment. Hopefully they will sort it out. B&N online community just began using Disqus, so maybe the powers that be there will kick them into fixing it.

Ooh, the new Amanda Quick! Can't wait to read that (except that I have to, as I'm on the library waiting list. Darn.) 45 Pounds (More or Less) looks good, and like something I ought to read; I've struggled with my weight all my life, though not as drastically.



And you had a good week -- I'm glad you're feeling a bit better, and I hope you continue to improve each day. Congrats on reaching 300,000 page views! Huzzah!

I love Amanda and of course you know I have mad love for Arcane, and this series has been quite good. I admit I would never have picked it up but am curious about 45lbs. Have a great week my friend!
