a quick blame game update...

...so I can finally put these books away. :P These first three came from PaperbackSwap.

*Mallory's Oracle by Carol O'Connell sees Susan being stuck with her second point from this post. Haha--the evil of series, huh?

*Labor Day by Joyce Maynard. Honestly not a book that normally would catch my eye, but dammit Chris made me think I had to have it with his review, so he must suck up a point as well.

*The Tricksters by Margaret Mahy. Yep, the lovely Ana who could probably convince me to read book on lawn mower repair. :P This review--no resisting.

...and this one came from one of the funniest bloggers on the planet.

*The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan. And yes, Jill is being shouldered with the blame despite her kindness in sending it to me. Despite the fact that I'm not much of a paranormal girl, her review left me wanting to read this one badly.

I will say that I'm mighty proud of myself though...only four books in about two months! I know, I know--who is this woman?!! :P (Okay, okay, I did also get three books that I couldn't pawn off blame for, but still, you gotta admit I'm showing impressive restraint lately!)

Wow, you are SO much more restrained than I could ever be, lol. I got more than that just last week!! LOL..I so hope you enjoy Labor Day!! It's not the kind of book I thought I'd normally enjoy either, but it really was fantastic :)

Wow, thank you for the point(s)! lol I'm happy to know that post is doing it's job! :-D and one day soon - maybe after Christmas - you'll have the time to read it, I really hope you like it!

I want to read The Last Werewolf too.

4 books is pretty good! very good restraint! Of course I tell myself the books I am buying now are going in my Christmas box.....
