  3. I haven't seen a Dr. Who show in forever. But, I did the same thing one time. Me and my hubby collected Lost the series and I know I had missed a bunch so I watched them back to back and sat on my sofa for days...But, it was relaxing and fun to do. I hope you enjoy your books and your show!

  14. Awesome haul!! I'm reading Fated right now and enjoying it! So many pretty book covers---seriously, I think AU gets some of the best covers for YA, especially the Mercy series!

  15. LOVED Sweet Venom so I hope you enjoy it! I haven't read Fated yet but I'll have to get to it soon before Pan Mac begins hassling me ;) I didn't enjoy Mercy that much but Haunting Violet was a very good read. Love the Frost series too - I've got the ARC of book 3 but haven't read it yet….. Eek! Great haul this week! Thanks for stopping by!

  16. I hear so many good things about Jennifer Estep's books and I love the mythology aspect of Touch of Frost so... I think I kinda NEED to check it out soon! I have Haunting Violet too, which is begging to be read. I really enjoy the Mercy series! Quite different from other angel books out there.

    Ooh and Sweet Venom! I hope you like, I've been meaning to pick that up for ages.

    You have some AWESOME books ahead of you, I hope they satisfy your hunger!! :D
