  1. I still can't believe there are four Stravaganza Books. I read the first three so long ago! I was going to buy the fourth one, but I think I am going to have to reread the first three to remember what is going on! At lot of books on there that I loved. I think I might reread the Study series this year, and I am so excited for the new Susan Carroll book that is coming out in July. :) I wouldn't mind rereading the first books, but that might be too much planning ahead for me.

  2. The Outlander series is on my all time favorite list. I am looking forward to reading The Tenderness of Wolves.

  3. There's only a couple on your list that I've ready. I need to read faster and blog less. And I need to hurry and finish the photo book I'm working on.
