Life after 187 looks very interesting. I like the cover too.

The Silent Gift sounds compelling.
I didn't realize that Michael Landon's son was a writer. Hope you enjoy your books!

I'm kind of curious about the one by Micheal Landon Jr.

Spellbinder looks good and I'd see if I could locate a copy for Nona, but she is starting to get weird when it comes to books. She's growing up on me and I don't like it!

Ruth Schaller said...

Friday Night Bites sounds really good. I'm going to have to check out that one myself.

I have also banned myself from buying new books, If I didn't I'd be overflowed with books in my

Happy reading :D

Marie said...

I really want to get Simon's Cat -- I just love those videos :-)

Zia said...

J.Kaye - Don't they all grow up just too darn fast?

Anonymous said...

Yes, they do, Zia, and I don't like it one little bit!

Sharon said...

I cant' wait to see what you have to say about cleopatra's Daughter. That book is on my wish list. Happy reading!

Ohhh - I love Simon's Cat! My son likes to sit on my lap and flip through the pages. He loves it so much, I will probably eventually let him color in it at some point (he's almost 3, and loves to color)... I'll wait until he can color in the lines. :)

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

Zia said...

Sharon - My review for Cleopatra's Daughter is here.

Wendi - Both my kids loved Simon's Cat and they're 11 and 16. It's a great book.

Lusty Reader said...

Oh I want to read Cleopatra's Daughter so badly. Hope you liked it! More than that I need to search for my old copy of Mara: Daughter of the Nile

Wrighty said...

I won Simon's Cat too and it's so cute! All of your books look good but especially Friday Night Bites! Can't wait to hear what you think of them. Enjoy!

The Silent Gift looks interesting. I didn't know that Michael Landon Jr. was an author. Happy reading.

GFDesignz said...

Life after 187 is on my TBR stack. It looks like an interesting read. Hopefully I can sneak up to it and read it this week.

J.T. Oldfield said...

I picked up Gathering Storm, and my husband is already done with it, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet. He says it's fantastic!

Anna said...

Great assortment of books! I was supposed to receive the Michael Landon book, too, but they emailed me and said the package was returned undeliverable, though they had the correct address. No word yet on whether they're going to resend. :(

Anyway, happy reading!
