  2. The Twins Read

    Good gravy – That Time I Joined the Circus, Nobody, The Dead and Buried, AND the available Tiger Saga hardcover books autographed with swag! So awesome… -drools- Happy reading!

  3. Ashley

    OMG I freaking looove your new books! You got That Time I Joined The Circus!! JELLY! That book sounds awesome! And don’t you just want to drool over that cover? I do. SO PRETTY!!! Also congrats on winning that box set of The Tiger Saga!! That’s sooo cool! I think those are my favourite physical books of all time.. For some reason they all just feel SO HEAVY. They feel heavier than some of my even lengthier hardbacks. They’re just so solid. And all the covers are gorgeous.

    Have an amazing week!! :) :) :)

  4. Sugar & Snark

    The Dead and Buried looks so good! Enjoy!

    I have Nobody too and hope you enjoy.
    Happy reading,
    Brandi from Blkosiner’s Book Blog

  38. I haven’t heard of any of those…but that’s what people ususally tell me, too. Just because a book isn’t absolutely popular, doesn’t mean it isn’t good. So I hope you enjoy. =)

  39. I didn’t know there were hardbacks of the Tiger Saga! Pretty! Well, since I already have the first three in paperback, I’ll continue the series in paperback for a matching set. Also really want to read Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, since I read and loved her Raised by Wolves series. Hope you’ll enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by!
