That's pretty epic, your haul, Christina! ;) Can't wait to see what you think of Unfailing Light and Prophecy, - both on my wishlist. Enjoy!

YAY you got Prophecy! I'm so excited to know what you think! And you know what's funny? The original manuscript was about 25K longer! There was a lot of editing and pruning! ;o)

Just One Day? *dies of incredible jealousy* - oh I really hope it holds up to Gayle's other books.

So I pretty much hate you right now because of your haul. But this week I got The Evolution of Mara Dyer (and nothing else), so I think we know who got the best haul this week. Sorry, Christina. Maybe next week?

BUT YOU GOT PIVOT POINT! AND NOBODY BUT US! (You got it right - I'm dying to read that) AND MIND GAMES! AND JUST ONE DAY!



Enjoy your haul. I'll try not to be bitter. (she says bitterly)

Yay for Renegade! And the Madman's Daughter sounds really good! Pivot Point sounds SO good too! But almost every HC book I read this year have been 3 stars. Bleh. So let's hope I have better luck with that one. Great haul, chickiedee!

Nobody But Us looks SO GOOD! And Mind Games looks really good too. That is quite the haul, I am going to have to look into this YA Book Central thingy you speak of.

You totally won! *sigh* I will cling on to my dreams of this week's haul, which so far consists of only books I've bought, so I think I'm winning!

Apparently no one? Lol.

Oh no! I've been up and down on HC. I usually like Balzer + Bray books a bit more, though that's not consistent either.

The Fuck You song by Cee Lo? Where he's like I really hate your ass right now?
