    yay for Tamora Pierce! I just read the Song of the Lioness quartet about a month ago and liked it a lot. Hopefully those are good too.

  2. Kris (Voracious YAppetite) says:

    I'm waiting on Endless Summer at my library and I can't wait to read Paranormalcy! I still haven't read anything by Tamora Pierce. Awesome books this week, enjoy!!

  3. Chachic says:

    Oooh I also got Endless Summer this week but I haven't read it yet. Hope you like the Daughter of the Lioness duology, I liked it even better than the Song of the Lioness series.

    Nice loot. Can't wait to see what you think of them!

  5. Oh my, Tamora Pierce! Those two are really good, not as great as Song of the Lioness IMO but still awesome. And the Westing Game, I loved that book when I was a kid.

  6. Oh my, the music is so loud! You´re so funny, loved your books, wish I could win books to review too!

    Allison – I am SO excited to finally read Tamora Pierce.

    Kris – Endless Summer was fairly decent. I am wicked excited about Paranormalcy.

    Chachic – I am glad you like Tamora Pierce, it makes my purchase feel more validated!

    Loreleimarsh – I'll be posting reviews of what I got, as I read!

    Amelia – I loved the Westing Game and wish I had read it as a kid.

    Carol – Enter contests throughout the blogosphere. Usually there are some good international contests, too if you are international.
