The Swan Thieves is haunting me! Everywhere I look someone is reading it... I think the world is conspiring to tell me something. I hope you enjoy it.

Mine is here if you want to look

It doesn't have The Swan Thieves but I might have to read it soon!

Shy said...

I've to agree with Becky there. Been visiting couple of blogs today and all of them seem to be reading The Swan Thieves! Is this a sign which says that I should start reading it too?? *lol*

Anyways, hope you have a fantastic week ahead =)

I am listening to the Swan Thieves audio too (disc 3) so far so good..... beautiful and descriptive.

Have a great week :)

I'll be interested to see what you think of The Poacher's son, I decided not to do that one. Have a wonderful reading week :-)

I thought about signing up for The Poacher's Son but wasn't sure if I would enjoy it. Can't wait to see what you think of it.

Again...I'm in the same boat as a lot of the others with the Swan Thieves. I'm really interested in hearing what you think, because the reviews I've read have been very mixed.

It looks like you have a great week ahead of you! Have fun reading and I'm looking forward to all the reviews!

I did the B&N book club when it first started, but I haven't done it in awhile. Need to make time for it again.

All of these are new to me except the Swan Thieves which is on my wish list. I'm curious about The Poacher's Son. Happy reading!

Of all the books you've listed this week, I've only heard of The Swan Thieves, but honestly, the title that caught my attention is Keeper's of the School. I need to go look it up right now. Enjoy your reading this week!
