  3. Hehe your Edelweiss stack looks almost exactly like my one! I'm not sure about Prisoner of Night & Fog though, the historical romance part sort of makes me hesitant to request it. I'll have to check out what people think about it. Enjoy your reads and thanks for stopping by my STS!

  9. Nice haul. I try so hard to be good and fail at that. I have a lot of NG and EW to clear off now before I can get more. The cover for Taking is really nice though.

  13. I can't wait for you to read Obsession. I loved it more than the Lux series but that's because I love some sexy times in my read! I was thinking about requesting Tease but wasn't so sure about it. I hope it turns out to be good read. Congrats on the 1000th post! And thanks for stopping by :)
