Coming Soon -- What We're Reading and Reviewing...In Theory
Um, other than the books I have posted for the last two weeks I haven't read yet? (THE SHAME!)



  1. You've included some great links this week, the victim blaming one is just plain sad but on a happier note I am looking forward to your upcoming reviews, ladies!

    1. Thank you Mandee! That link is so frustrating isn't it? --N

  2. Woohoo, The Blue Sword! That's one of my favorites. Also curious about Holier Than Thou.

    1. Hee, Chachic. I've been what Maggie would call harrasking her to read Blue Sword forever haha. I hope she likes it as much as we do. :D --N

  3. Oh, I'm mentioned here. NO BIG DEAL. Maybe I'll just print it out and post it on my wall.

    I hope you two more than hypothetically review some of those books. SPECIFICALLY THE BUZO. Review that one or I'll come into your rooms at night and cut all your shirts into muscle tees.

    I love that book cover video. I watched it a while back...and then I watched it 40 more times.

    1. Sorry, Flannery. Your threats are meaningless--all my shirts are already muscle tees! Good thing Maggie is reading that one ;) She makes me so jealous with all of her "planning ahead" and "preordering". I can't wait for her to review it either.

      And I love the Eiffel tower oops in that video! --N

  4. Some interesting links this week ladies! I'm definitely signing up to the 48 hour book challenge! I seriously need to get my butt into gear and get some reading done! You've also got some great books coming up, can't wait to hear your thoughts on Burn for Burn and Holier than thou! :)

    1. Yes! I would love to join that challenge just so I can be like sorry, can't talk right now OFFICIAL READING CHALLENGE going on :D. My Goodreads Challenge is scoffing at me already haha. --N

  5. I was officially challenged to read The Blue Sword this month. Not sure if that's more or less binding than a good harasking but maybe I'll join you Maggie.

    I can't believe those two links from last week's fiasco. Ag.

  6. I must start reading Laura Buzo. *repeats/chants on a regular basis*

  7. When are you gonna read Buzo Maggie? When? Do it now, NOW! :D
