I would love to read and review Edge Of Oblivion: A Night Prowler Novel I would be willing to review A Study In Seduction if you are wanting to send both of them to the same place. They both sound interesting.

I think the scarier thing is...how did they get a hold of your address. O_O

I read some romance novels (more like a handful a year)...guilty pleasure. Most times, its only if there's royalty involved that make me want to read them. I eat stories that deal with royalty like candy. But I never review them, because I almost never know what to say.


OOOO! UNWHOLLY! AWESOMESAUCE. I still think the guy is creepy, but whatever.

Love in Theory!I was interested when I saw it on TLC, but I am always lost when it comes to reviewing short stories.

Ahhhhh! Ahhhh!

That copy of The Phantom Tollbooth is awesome. I need to buy it for my collection. Sigh. WANT.
I need to check Fair Coin out, it sounds kind of cool.

Claire Legrand is awesome. I'm excited to read Malcolm at Midnight as well. It does indeed look cute.

Fair Coin looks really good! Mail on a Sunday? No freaking way, I wish. I actually dread the weekend now because I know that there is no chance to get mail :-( and THAT's how exciting my life is folks. Great haul Christina, I hope you enjoy your goodies!

That is really sweet of you, Christina! <3
I don't read much romance anymore, because I'm an old crab ... it's like reading how to catch a horse, after the barn's burnt down ;P

That is so cool that you got Fair Coin!!! I just put that one on my want list, so hope it turns out to be a great read and you really enjoy it!

Unwholly ... that is one freaky dude. If I saw him in a dark alley, I would run away. Fast. O>O

Fair Coin sounds really good I love that cover! And ugh, Unwind was the worst book I read in my LIFE *projectile barf*.

THAT IS WHY I WAS HORRIFIED. I mean, I have an Amazon account, so maybe that's how? Sigh. I wonder if this is a test for becoming a Vine member? If so, I'm failing, because there was nothing in the package telling me that.

That's part of why I'm not keeping it. WHAT WOULD I SAY?

So creepy. He is supposed to be, I think.

Short stories are really hard to review. We'll see how it goes.

Don't be jealous. I paid full price.

I <3 Phantom Tollbooth. Seriously one of the best books ever.

Fair Coin was enjoyable and I suspect the series will improve from there!

Claire Legrand is awesome. I want the Cavendish book so much!

I think you would like her book Yesterday. It's a dystopian and there are sexy sex times. :)

I suspect it was put in a neighbor's box, and they just left it on my stoop on Sunday morning. Who knows, though? It's a mystery.

Right? I hate Sundays! I only got one book for review that I wanted this week. *weeps* Poor me. My life is SO HARD.

Oh my. You could keep the horse in a field? I really don't know what that would mean metaphorically. I really loved romance novels when I was like 13, but now the bloom is off the rose. The writing tends to be repetitive, as are the stories. Plus, it's just so not like real life.

I'm doing a giveaway for Fair Coin, so check that out!

You should run away. That is a sign of survival skills.

Wow. That is some emotion.

Fair Coin is one of those books that I've been seeing for months and heard good things but never got around to. Look forward to hearing what you think of it.

Maybe you should read one of the romances, discover a new genre *snickers*

Oh, I already reviewed; I'll send you a link on twitter.

Yeah, I'll get right to that. :p

Dammit, you just pushed up my wish list! I've always been curious about Fair Coin but never quite bought it...
