Recent Acquisitions

You guys, I've been such an awful blogger lately....granted, some of the books I've read recently won't have reviews posted for a while just because they're for pre-scheduled tours, but still, my reading and posting have slowed down far too much. I'm not even particularly busy with college yet; I just don't feel like doing anything. This is going to be such a fun semester...

For example, I was too lazy to take pictures of all the books in this post. It was an act of great will to bother to upload the pictures I'd already taken.

For review:
Demi-Monde #2: The Shadow Wars by Rod Rees (TLC Tours)
I've already finished books #1 and #2 in this series and will be posting the reviews around Feb. 20.
