What did everyone else get?


  1. Wow girl, you got some great books! I really need to get my butt over to the Strand, I work not too far away but it's just so damn cold! lol...great finds though, enjoy!

  2. Fabulous books! Your so lucky to have The Mark lol :)

  3. Too bad I don't live in NY, I'd go to the Strand every day! Vintage Veronica and After are at the top of my 2010 wishlist...lucky you, I'm super-jealous!

  4. Amazing week, definitely. Interesting that you got Possessed - I have the UK version and it's eerie but I'm finding it a slow-mover. I'm also *so* envious that you got The Mark! Hope you enjoy them all!

  5. Too bad I don't live in NY, I'd go to the Strand every day! Vintage Veronica and After are at the top of my 2010 wishlist...lucky you, I'm super-jealous! And HOLY CRAP!!!! Perchance to Dream? I am SOOOOO jealous, Eyes Like Stars was my favorite book of '09!

  6. I'm super jealous! i want a strand!!lol
    Happy reading!

  7. Wow that's a lot. All of them look so good. Happy reading!

  9. You've been nominated for an award at my blog :)

  10. Holy crap, this is a week's worth of books!? Jealous! Pretty sweet loot. I hope you enjoy them all. :)

    My IMM

  11. Wow, you got really lucky this week!!! I've only been to the Strand once (maybe twice???) but I didn't have any good luck finding stuff! A Barnes & Noble going out of business!? That's crazy! Borders is the dying store over where I am. :/

    Happy reading!

  12. Dark Divine and Meridian sound really good! I really want to get them.

    I LOVED The Awakening! I can't wait for The Reckoning!

    I plan to read You Are So Undead to Me, it sounds good. :)

    Happy Reading!

  15. WOW.
    You got some wicked books this week!

    I didn't even know there were ARC copies of Perchance to Dream were really out yet. I DYING to read Eyes Like Stars!!

  16. Gah, so jealous! The majority of those HCs are on my wish-list. Happy reading!

  17. OMG There are so many books here I;d love to get my hands on! I really enjoyed Bite Me and You are so undead to me - hope you enjoy them all:)

  18. Perchance to Dream?! Wow, didn't even hear of that name yet. Seems like I really NEED to visit Strand. And I don't even know where to start with mentioning which books I want to read, because it's all of them. Happy reading! :)

  19. I think I would totally freak out if I had this many new books to read. Come to think of it so would my husband, where would we put them LOL? I'm looking forward to Meridian. I really love the sound of its premise. Enjoy!

  20. Those sound great, Kelsey! Its sad the store went out of business, but it does mean awesome sales! =) Enjoy!

  21. Whoa, you got sooo many books! Harmonic Feedback!!!

    Happy reading, and I look forward to your reviews! :D

  22. Great books! I really wish I could snatch most of your loot this week!

    Here's what I got this week:

    Have a good one!

  23. I really can't wait to read In a Heartbeat.

    Happy Reading!

  24. Great books! I was going to go to Strand this weekend but I chickened out because it was SO cold!

  25. Amazing! I wish I lived near the Strand, but no, I'm across the country. It never ceases to amaze me that they sell such good ARCs. I don't know any book store near me that sells ARCs.

  26. Quite a few great books you've got this week.

    I recommend pushing these titles to the top of your reading stack:
    Coffeehouse Angel
    In A Heartbeat
    Deadly Little Secret
