  2. I haven't read any of these books, but Shades of Earth looks good. I wasn't too interested in the series when the first book was published, but now I want to read it.

    I don't have a bloglovin' account, so I used twitter and goodreads.

  3. It's a good thing to have so many favorite books for the year. Also, I see that you're reading Across the Star-Swept Sea. I am too, and I am in LOVE! Have you seen The Scarlet Pimpernel movie with Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour and Ian McKellen? If not, you totally should!!

  4. Loved Heart of Obsidian and I have Kiss of Steel on my iPad. Will definitely be moving it up this year.
    Thanks for stopping by the Harem and Happy New Year.
