WOW, Kimberly, you've never failed to surprise me with what you bag every week!! I've stopped myself from getting anymore books before I finish my TBR pile, it's TORTUOUS >.< There's surely a lot going on, and I look forward to your reviews!! (I heard Throne of Glass is great, how was it for you? :D) I've been wanting to read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, but her Shadow of Night looks as awesome with all your swag ;)

Have a great week ahead!

OMG, The Unfailing Light is out and about now? AGH! Must have! Though I am really creeped out by how absurdly tiny the waist of the girl on the cover is. That does not look normal. O_o
