As you can see I'm getting more and more into adult books! I've been missing out on some great series and novels, so I'm starting to read ones that my book buddies have loved. The Kate Daniels series is a wonderful example! I love these books.

I've already read Apollyon and Quintana of Charyn. Hopefully I'll have reviews up by April. Loved them both! Can't wait to read Under the Never Sky because I heard the sequel was real good.

That's about all I have to say for this book haul. What great books did you get? :)

  3. KATE DANIELS! I love that series SO MUCH and the last three books are the BEST! Especially Book 4! *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* Also, Under the Never Sky is just fantastic, as is its sequel, and I loved On Dublin Street. It was sexy and deep all at the same times, so I can't wait to see what you think of it. GREAT haul, Alexa! :D

  8. Wow, that is a ton of books! The 'Kate Daniels' series is one of my favourites, I hope you enjoy it! I've also heard good things about 'On Dublin Street' (and it's set in my home-college city of Edinburgh, yay!) and am hoping to read it soon.

    You can check out the books I got here.
