Comments

  1. That’s a lot of books! Good luck. I will be sharing my September stack tomorrow from Opinionated Book Lover. 🙂

  2. I’m hoping to get to get to Burial Rites soon. I’ve seen Uninvited around A LOT. It looks really good.

  3. The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend was an enjoyable read. Maybe living in small town Iowa helped, but I think you’ll enjoy it. Thanks for the link up!

  4. Some great pick-ups last month. Although I am not really a fan of Pippi Longstocking. 😀 But Uninvited looks really good. (In fact I already added it to my TBR) Will you be reviewing it on your blog?
