    You're going to love Stolen. I can't wait to hear what you have to say about Brightly Woven, I've heard mixed things.

    Hi Allison!

    This is truly an impressive load of books πŸ™‚ I am interested to see what you think about the Kristan Higgins books you got. I have recently read two of her books and liked them both.

    Guess what? I'm giving you the Versatile Blogger Award! Go HERE to check it out.

    Have a great weekend!

    I read the Cold Sassy Tree a few years ago. I hope you decide to review it. I thought it was a good book. Have a great weekend!

    Those Jenny Han books look like such great summer-y reads. I need to get my hands on them before summer's up!

    Wow! Great books! The Maze by Catherine Coulter is one of my favorites in her FBI series! Have you read the first book in the series: The Cove? I love those characters! Happy reading! Here's mine:

  • Felicia the Geeky Blogger August 8, 2010, 3:58 pm

    What a great haul you got at the library sale. I need to start hitting mine up πŸ™‚

  • Tara August 8, 2010, 5:57 pm

    Library book sales are the best! Looks like you got a lot of great books as well – enjoy!

    Here is my IMM.

  • Sarah August 8, 2010, 6:05 pm

    Oh! I love library sales.. I have such a problem when I go to them though, I always leave with like 20 books. The same thing happens when I hit up used bookstores. I see that you got Stolen from the library too. That book was incredible! I hope you like it. I have been thinking about picking up a copy of The Space Between trees, Katie Williams is coming to do a signing next week – apparently she grew up like 2 minutes from where I live, so she is coming home to promote her book.

    Anyways, great haul this week and Happy reading!

    Forever Amber is one of those books I have been dying to read but I feel like I need to devote some serious reading time, just because of its size! I love library sales: I always find something I never heard of before. Happy reading!

  • Mary Ann August 8, 2010, 11:43 pm

    OMG … I thought I was the ONLY person left on Earth who had a copy of Forever Amber!!!

    You will *love* it πŸ˜€

  • Alison August 8, 2010, 11:55 pm

    Great books! I have Brightly Woven sitting here from the library and hope to get to it soon.

    LOL, I guess I'm lucky with the friends that I have<3.

    It feels like I'm the only one that has crappy library sales! lol. But wow, you got A LOT of books this week-everything looks awesome. And I LOVED Cleopatra's Daughter-I hope you do too πŸ™‚

  • Tasha August 9, 2010, 5:51 pm

    Looks like you have a very full mailbox this week! πŸ™‚ Happy reading…


  • Melissa (My words and pages) August 10, 2010, 1:14 am

    Wow! You really have quite a collection of books this week. I hope you enjoy them all. I really enjoyed Elantris by Brandon Sanderson, and the others he has written as well. Have a great week!

    Have a great week. And if you would like to stop by I have my Monday's Beginnings up…

  • danya August 10, 2010, 3:43 am

    Stolen's supposed to be really gripping, but I haven't read it yet – it'd be interesting to hear what you think. Also, I enjoyed Brightly Woven, hope you do too!
