I'm going to get to the Hunger Games books one of these days. Great group of books in your mailbox, hope you enjoy them all. Happy reading.

So many great books! I have some of those on my wish list. Hope you enjoy them all!

I agree about The Hunger Games series. I loved those books!! I'm curious to see what you think about the audio version because I don't much about them. Hope it's terrific! :)

Catching Fire is supposed to be wonderful. I read The Hunger Games, but I never got to this one. I am curious about the Jesse Kellerman book. I've read some of his parents' work, but don't know anything about his. I hope it's good!

Enjoy all your new goodies!

Great list of books, Zia...I noticed The Executor there. It's been on my wish list!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

You've got some interesting books there. I especially love the look of Paul is Undead! I'm not likely to read a zombie book, but that's a great title and cover!

I read Arcadia Falls after reading a review on Linus's Blanket earlier this year - I liked it. Goodman is a descriptive writer, I will read more from this author.

I have passed on Hunger Games, the idea is just creepy to me. I'm waiting for a friend to read it (who knows what I enjoy reading).

Have a great week!

Sounds like everyone is excited for you to finish up Catching Fire and I'm one of those saying "you'll LOVE it!" Fabulous books! I hope you enjoy Black's series you got in the mail, I really liked them, but you HAVE to finish the whole series to really enjoy it.

Have a fantastic reading week and if you get a chance, stop by: Monday Reading's at There's A Book

I am really looking forward to reading Bullet by Laurell K. Hamilton. It should be waiting for me when I get to my vacation home tomorrow. I also think you will like Valiant when you add it to the books you are reading. Happy reading.

Cat said...

Hope you enjoyed Arcadia Falls. I like Carol Goodman's books but haven't read this one yet.

Happy reading!

Kaye said...

I too have been eying Arcadia Falls for a while. Hope you liked it. Enjoy all your new reads.

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

You had a big week. You finished a lot and you got a lot. :) That is great! I hope you are enjoying Catching Fire. I look forward to your review on it. Have a great week!

I'm buying Not-So-Bebe Girl Autumn "The Hunger Games" series for her birthday! I simply mentioned the books, and her eyes lit up "ALL of my friends say those books are GREAT!" :)

Happy reading!
