  1. Lots of goodies you got there!!! Zachary Zombie looks mighty tasty ;D

  2. What!!!! Zafon on netgalley?! Arghh why do I never see things

  3. Everything looks great! I was very happy to do my first IMM today lol. Those Jane Austen books caught my eye. I believe you've set me on the path to becoming a Janeite.

  4. So many awesome books! Happy reading! :D

  5. It seems like all the Janeish books I'm reading lately mention Georgette Heyer. Apparently I need to cave and give her a try.

  6. Zombies!! And I missed it! Awe pooh! But that Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy looks cool.

  7. Just wanted to let ya know the Zachary book is still free for Kindle if anyone is still interested.

  8. Great books this week! Replay sounds good.
