The only truly exciting thing was when my book haul for Better World Books was shared by the company across their social media. George will soon need a chauffeur and bodyguards (maybe Torrie could fulfill that role), as his pictures are internet famous (his pic also got retweeted by Ilona Andrews, but that wasn't blog related, per say).

Planning to Read in March:
The Incarnations by Susan Barker
Back in December I was notified I won this in a giveaway on Goodreads. I was so excited because I've never 'won' anything from Goodreads before. I eagerly awaited the book's arrival, assuming it would arrive early February. I had given up on receiving it, but it came on the first of March. So, if you win something via Goodreads, expect to wait quite awhile to get it.
Anyway, this is magical realism, and Guiltless Reader's review convinced me to put it on my TBR, when I noticed it had a giveaway going on on Goodreads. I'm still excited to read it, although the wait was longer than I had anticipated.
There will likely be more "The Edge" series reviews, along with some others I've been putting off. I was very proud of myself in February when I managed to review both of my five star reads from December, and yet I still have books from December that I want to review that I haven't yet. In other words, expect the unexpected: who knows what I'll review (although the Edge novels I have rather clear thoughts for).
