    Covenant is great, although I prefer Lux. I'm a massiva fan of Richelle Mead and even though I love JLA to death, I'm just way disturbed that the Covenant series is so similar to Vampire Academy. Still, I hope you read them soon and I can't wait to see what you think:) Happy reading and happy holidays!

    LOL – Really Penguin? Haha, so I take it that one was unsolicited. At least the Covenant series should be good!

    I actually read Alchemytic and its more YA than adult if that's what your confused about. They are probably trying to market it to YA readers as well as adult. The MC is college age but lives at home and she acts like a teenager. It just felt YA to me and was surprised that it was packaged as adult.

    A lot of Jennifer L. Armentrout in you mailbox this week. I constantly hear good things about her but I still did not read any of her books. I will have to correct that mistake soon. Great haul, I hope you enjoy them all.

    Happy holidays!
