  1. They all look great although I haven’t heard of most of them. I just bought my first Libba Bray book a couple of weeks ago on audio so I’m looking forward to that. A Great and Terrible Beauty sounds so good I might have to get that one next!


  2. I totally agree with you about Feast of Crows (where’s Tyrion already?!)
    I also love Gregory MacGuire, Chelsea Handler (only 2 bucks, really?! What good luck!), Libby Bray and am a huge Serenity fan!!
    I like that you are planning your weaponry for the zombie apocolypse (I thought I was the only one πŸ™‚ ) Love your IMM. Thanks for sharing!

    Loved you IMM. Thanks for sharing.



  4. Awesome in my mailbox. New email subscriber. Love Wegmans. =] Also I really like the Song of Ice and Fire Series. I just read the first and still have to read the second one. Love Wicked, I read Son of a Witch and it wasn’t as good as Wicked but still good. I can’t wait to read Out of Oz the 4th one that is coming out in November. Also I have read Lies that Chelsea Handler told me and it is hysterical just as funny as all her other books. I definitely suggest reading that tomorrow. Great post. =] If you want to you can check out my IMM here: My IMM


    1. Have you read A Lion Among Men yet? It’s the book that comes after Son of a Witch, and it’s about the Cowardly Lion. It actually sounds really good!


  5. You’re so welcome! Thanks for the mention. I understand wanting to finish all the series you have going before starting another. Depending on how you look at it, both trilogy and series are correct. It is the Farseer trilogy, but Hobb used the same characters in a second trilogy called The Tawny man (which I haven’t read yet, but really want to.) I believe Tawny Man takes place 15 years later than the Fareer trilogy.


    1. Yay Daisy I’m glad you liked it so much! Although I’ll probably wait until next year to start it, just like the Farseer trilogy.


  6. You got a lot of great books! My son loves the George R. R. Martin books! I’ve never been in a Wegman’s (we don’t have them here) but everyone raves about them, so I feel like I’m missing out.


  7. WOW, great find with the Chelsea Handler! I don’t go into the store that often anymore but I should. We have a different entrance so I never walk by it and don’t always think to stop in. I did go in last week though and grab the copy of Outlander you told me you saw in there, though!
