I'm good if I can read 2 books a week. I figure that's pretty good for working full-time with kids. LOL.

Out of your list, I have Testimony but haven't read it yet.

I am also on the tours for Secrets to Happiness and Mating Rituals, they look like they are going to be very good!

I am lucky to get 1 book a week since I am in school, but luckily summer break is coming up. ;)

I hope you enjoy your new editions to your library!

I'm doing the Mating Rituals tour too. I think I'm the only one who didn't get Annie's Ghost.

Anna said...

You have some great books on your list! I like how you made them all into a collage!

Mary said...

I've read a few of these and enjoyed them. I'll watch for reviews.

Missy said...

I am interested in Annie's Ghosts...it looks like it may be one to add to my wish list. :)

Alyce said...

How nice that you've got a perfect pace set up for your reading! I have been cutting back on my requests gradually for months, so I understand how it can be nice to have a TBR pile that's not so intimidating.

Wrighty said...

So many good books! I read Everyone is Beautiful and LOVED it! I'm waiting for The Mating Rituals and Secrets to Happiness. They sound really good. I can't wait to hear your reviews. Enjoy!
