    I got Remembrance this week as well, but I totally didn't know Vengeance was 99 cents as well, I'll have to go snag a copy!

    Have a good week!

  2. I totally laughed when you said you had to track down those book marks!! :) I hope you and your sons enjoy the book!

    Nice book haul this week. Those mermaid books do look cute. I haven't heard of them before. Can't wait to see what you think. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. I hope you have a great time at BEA! Don't stress yourself out too much. I went to ALA in January, and I know it doesn't compare to BEA by half, but I know you'll have an exciting time. I dragged my sister, who's not NEARLY as bookish as me, along and even she enjoyed herself. Plus, we picked up some books for our kiddos. :)

    Great haul this week! You made me go add Changeling to my cart on B&N, even though it was already teetering on the edge of way too full. :)

    P.S. Pick me up a copy of Raven Boys, will ya?!? :P J/k. Sorta. :D

  4. I keep wanting to check out the books from the Melissa De La Cruz series.. but there are so many of them I think.. and so many off-shoots?

    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by :)
