    I really like the look of Illuminate- but I didn't realise how BIG it is! This picture makes it look huge!
    I love Kelley Armstrong's young adult series- I'm starting The Calling this week. Enjoy all your new books!

    Sweet Evil!! I've heard so many good things about that book, and that cover is just drool-worthy. I'm really looking forward to your review of it! I have The Gathering, but I still haven't read it. I keep telling myself that I need to!

    Anyways, happy reading. =)

    The Calling and The Gathering (or, er, vice versa) will knock your socks off. I loved both of them, and I'm dreading the long wait until next April, when The Rising finally comes out. Gah!

    I haven't read Illuminated yet, though it's sitting on my bookshelf. I started it, but I wasn't sure I was enjoying it, so I set it aside. I'll have to pick it up again!
