  • You had an awesome month! Pure heaven for an audiobook lover. BTW, I am AS I TYPE loading Faith on to my iPod…

  • I am so jealous that you are able to read this much! I love, love, love your blog and take notes of all the awesome books I one day hope to read!

  • Oh, I had no idea that you started the Parasol Protectorate series. What did you think? I do think that is one of my favorite series these days. Her latest was just released on Friday. I cannot wait to read it! I’ll be curious to see what you thought of THE WHITE DEVIL too.

    • I’m enjoying it, I need to actually write my review so I can read the next one. Someone in Twitter recommended it to me as similar to the Living With the Dead series.

  • Looks like you had a successful reading month overall!
