looking forward to your reviews =)

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

You have so many amazing books I want to read too! Burn and Iron King are just two of them. Have a wonderful week!

Gwen said...

The Iron King sounds so interesting and so different from what I am used to reading. I am adding it to my list!

Happy Reading:)

Kristen said...

Before I Fall sounds fantastic. She's going to be in town in March and I really need to read her book! :) Enjoy your week of reading!

Elizabeth said...

I'm jealous you got the Ozzy book from Hachette. It wasn't one I was offered. The cover of The Iron King is beautiful, don't you think?
Here's my Monday http://ebogie.blogspot.com/2010/02/what-im-reading-this-monday-2810.html

Fantastic books this week, I'm a little green with envy and blue with sadness that I didn't get some of these :-)

Enjoy them all!

Cat said...

Don't recognise many of your titles but I do love the cover of The Iron King which seems to be appearing everywhere.

Happy reading!

Esme said...

Does Dekker ever write solo or always with someone else.

Teddyree said...

You're right, we do have a lot of books in common this week. I am so peeved I wasn't in time to sign up for Before I Fall :-(
Happy reading!!

Kim said...

Your book titles are new to me, but the cover of Iron Kings is stunning. I would pick it up based on that alone--because I am shallow like that! ;) You sure did have a busy mailbox--which makes any day a bit brighter.
*smiles*

It seems like everyone has The Iron King on their blog today! I can't wait to read it for myself!

The Messenger is one of those books that everyone except me seems to have read. It's on my list though!

Enjoy your books this week!

Jan von Harz said...

Messenger is a good read although it can't compare to The Giver. I've had Iron King in my pile for a couple of weeks and still have yet to get to it, but can't wait. Happy reading.

Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings said...

I have The Iron King on my reading list this week, and I've ordered Need from the library. Have a great reading week!

Kaye said...

Wow, you did have a fabulous week. Love the cover on the Iron King. Happy reading! My MM is here

ibeeeg said...

Wow...you had a great mailbox week!

Before I Fell...the cover kinda creeps me out. Look forward to knowing what you think of the read.

Trissa...how did you like the story? Did you post a review and I missed it?

Burn...another Ted Dekker book...golly...I really need to read a Dekker book. I read two before, long time ago and really liked the reads. Hope you like Burn.

Hope you have a great reading week!!
