  1. I’m really looking forward to picking up A Burnable Book – the author is going to be at my local bookstore next week and I can’t wait to hear him speak. Great collection of titles you rounded up!


    • Oooh! That’s great, Shannon! I hope you enjoy it. If you ever share it in your blog, I’ll be glad to read it. What intrigued me was the title. I hope no book is burnable as the title suggests!


  2. I found Prayers for the Stolen to be really moving. Love the cover of Cascade!


  3. I’ve heard good things about Aerogrammes. However am in a bit of a reading slump at the moment, so will just wait for your review and then decide whether to pick it up or not.


  4. I read Cascade and reviewed it on my blog. I thought it would be a big bookclub pick, but it never really took off the way i thought it would.
