  2. All is forgiven... I have stacks piling on my nightstand... yikes... let's not go there.

    I love the cover for the The Girl would speak for the Dead. It sounds very Ghost Whisperer like.

    Happy reading :)

  5. I love the cover on The Girl Who Would Speak for the Dead. I think that was one from Shelf Awareness that wasn't open to Canada. Anyhow, can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

  12. Oh Staci I can so relate to the seriously overdue books; chaos reigns in my home and I seem to get further and further behind. You can only do what you can do.

  18. My TBR pile is seriously giving me the blues, I look at all the books I need to read and get overwhelmed. This week I had a very difficult time picking up books that just didn't grab me and still needed to be read.
