  5. Lots of title with cats in them interesting. You are realy one busy lady. Wish I could read that many books in one week. Oh well spring break is almost here. Then I have a whole week to devote to my reading.

  6. I havent any of your pile but my pile is also increasing! Have an interesting week.

  7. I heard that Heart at Stake is a funny read. It is on my few yards long wishlist and I don't know when I 'll ever get a chance to read it, meh! But nonetheless, I know I'll be waiting for your review on the book. Hope you enjoy your reads for this week! Happy... weekdays ;)

  8. Sisters Red looks really good. I hadn't heard of Alex Van Helsing, but it looks good as well. The title reminds me a little of a short story by Joe Hill called Abraham's Boys. It was good, but not YA and uber-creepy. Enjoy your books!

    Also I feel like you get to meet every author ever. I'm so jealous, ha ha.
