  1. Steel does look really good, right? I can't read it quite yet, but I have t scheduled in soon, so yay for that.

    Personally, I really REALLY like How I Live Now (with a few minor complaints). But it is one of those books that provokes a love/hate reaction. To warn you going in: it is stream-of-consciousness, so it's difficult in the beginning. But it gets more sane as it goes, in the most interesting way. I have theories on that...
    Also, there is incest. I think that's what throws most people and makes them angry. Just putting that out there. I didn't find it offensive, though, and I don't think it was over the top.

    Oh, and Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow...
    READ IT NOW!!!
    Sorry, just had to. :P

  5. Dude, happy late birthday. Eh, better late than never, and you got some awesome books. Wow, yeah! :)

    I love Holly Black and I really need to light a fire under my rumpkusk to get the Hunger Games trilogy read. I've had the first book just like sitting on my shelf and I've seen Steel highly recommended all over the book blogosphere. So, yeah.

    And um, you're cute and I'm possibly stalking you forever. So, yeah...following, stalking, whichever you wanna take it. If you get a chance, maybe check out my blog.
