  1. Kelley Armstrong is my favorite author. Hope you enjoy Bitten!

  2. SO jealous of Radiance!!!! Happy Reading.. =)

  3. Great books, especially Radiance, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I loved The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest, I hope you'll like it as much as I did. I've been meaning to read Bitten for awhile now, can't wait to see what you think of it. Happy Reading.

  4. Hey Kelli,

    I don't know why it has taken me so long to read the Millennium series! I need to get on that! Looks like you got some great books! Hope you enjoy!

    FYI, I'm hosting my first giveaway. Check it out if you have a chance:
    The The New Me Giveaway!

    Happy Reading,
    The Unread Reader

  5. Hadn't visited your blog before but really like it and am a new follower. Will definitely be back again! Radiance looks really good - might have to get that one.

  6. Radiance looks so good! I hope you enjoy Bitten as well! (That is one of my absolute favourite books!) Happy reading this week!

    I understand though, books prove more useful than supplies during inclement weather anyway! :)

  7. Another great week in the Mailbox. I really have to start the Stieg Larsson series soon. They are sitting on the shelves but... time.. if only I had more time....
    Happy reading :)
    Will post mine tomorrow at Aisle B ;P

  8. Great books! I've been wanting to read Rachel Vincet's books. Happy reading! =)

  9. OMG!!!!!! You bought the Wreck This Journal!!!!! I've been wanting to pick that one up forever, but every time I almost buy it, I stop and debate which book I would love more, and end up choosing something else!!!! I've heard a lot of good things about Alyson Noel, Rachel Vincent, and the Stieg Larson books, but I haven't heard of the other ones--looking forward to hearing how you like them!!! Have fun!!!

  10. I got a copy of Radiance signed at BEA. I'm kind of in love with the cover. I'm looking forward to reading it, and looking forward to hearing what you think of it, too! =)

  11. a war of her own looks interesting! yay for radiance!
