Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston
This one finally showed back up in US online stores, Yay! Love Lesley's work.

Across the Great Barrier by Patricia C. Wrede
Sequel to The Thirteenth Child, which I have yet to read, but hubby loves this series!

Where I Want to Be by Adele Griffin
I just read Tighter by Adele Griffin and loved it...can't wait to try more of her work.

Nick Hornsby, Gregory MaGuire, and lots more contributed to this one. Couldn't pass it up!

Hold Still by Nina LaCour
I've always heard amazing things about this one, was lucky to find it at the booksale!

The Underwood See by Michael Lawrence
This looks like an interesting series, still have to track down book 1 though!

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
I read this last year and it was AMAZING. Glad to finally have a copy of my own!

Well, that's it! Oh, and a quick update on the Mystery Box giveaway---winner will be announced sometime this week! Still processing through masses of entries! Thanks for entering, everyone! :D

  2. Everblue looks really good!

  3. Once Every Never looks awesome. Happy reading! :)

  4. All of your books look awesome, and I'm particularly jealous of Once Every Never! I also enjoyed The Thirteenth Tale. Happy reading!

  7. It's great that you were sent Everblue to review! I've wanted to read that every since I saw it online ages ago.

    Also, I've heard wonderful things about the Thirteenth Tale. It's odd though, I keep adding it to my wishlist, then deleting it a few weeks later, like I can't fully commit to wanting it! Oh well, hope it works out better for you :)
