  1. ME! Hah. You know what is awesome? YOU!

    I'm going to say "James" a thousand times in next weeks IMM! *pinky swear* #exaggeration

  2. Well, about the cover of Luminous, I think it's pretty but the butterflies freak me out, they always have, I'm anti-butterfly usually.

    I'll be sure to stay tuned from when you feature Christina Mandelski, I want to read The Sweetest Thing so, :)

    And I didn't know there was a new book of the Vampire Princess of St. Paul, I got Almost To Die for somewhere in my house, I meant to read it but I keep misplacing it, I'll try to find it again.

    Re: Demonglass - you'll love it. It's awesome. But I've been calling dibs on Cal all over :) I'm ready to fight for him.
    Otherwise, the wait for next book will kill you but Demonglass is just too awesome to pass up.

  3. Wow you got alot of awesome looking books. I'm excited for wolfsbane to come out I can't wait. I agree I liked the old cover. I'm not thrilled with the new ones.

  4. Definitely some AWESOME books there, looking forward to your reviews - enjoy!

  5. I know what you mean about the Luminous cover. It's pretty, but I have no idea how butterflies would fit what's happening in the novel.

    The Sweetest Thing actually made me crave cupcakes. I read the first chapter and then had to run to the store and buy cupcakes.

    This haul is epic. Enjoy your new books!

  6. great haul! Luminous cover is just gorgeous.

  7. I need to check out Rage & Because I Love Him. I teach kids that have had way harder lives than the typical happily ever after kind. Enjoyed.

    If you get a chance, stop by my IMM

  8. I really like the cover of Luminous! I got it this week as well, and thought it was really good. <3 (Once you get about halfway through the book, the butterflies make sense)

    Awesome books this week, James! Happy reading! :)

  9. Hi James. I found you through YouTube and I'm following your blog now. I like your style!

    But I Love Him sounds so good. I just found out about that one yesterday. I don't know about the Luninous cover either. "Pretty but ugly" sounds kinda right.
