Wow! Almost a whole summer’s worth of reading 🙂

That pile while keep you occupied for awhile 😀

Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

Wow- what a great week. I LOVED One Deadly Sin!!

Here’s my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

Can I just say. Queen of the Damned is soooo much better than the movie.

So, much better!!!!! There was a lot left out of the movie, so much so that it could never come close to the magnificence of the book! Can you tell I am an Anne Rice fan? I would suggest checking out Interview with The Vampire first, it is the first in the very long line of the Lestat books. The second is the Vampire Lestat then is Queen of the Damned. But I am sure it could stand well enough on it’s own.
