That was my mailbox this week. It is enough to keep me reading well into the Spring. What did you get?


  1. Wow! You sure got a lot! The Secret Year is pretty good,

    Have fun reading!! :)

  2. Thanks for including Prophecy in your post!

    The Secret Year is one of the novels I'm MOST excited about for 2010. I read it as an ARC and think it'll be one of the best books of the year.

    Also, The Mysterious Benedict Society is FANTASTIC. It's very "Harry Potter"-esque in a cool, new way. Even my fifteen-year-old daughter devoured every book and still pronounces it one of her favorite series of all time.

    Happy reading!
