You too Tango - If you like Favel's book you will like Blood :)"

But I got it on my site pretty quickly so I'm happy with that. I've only read one. I need to read more"


Haha I'm quick as a flash :P

I've read 3 of them so far - Blood, All That I Am and Past the Shallows. I'm so disappointed that The Street Sweeper didn't make the cut

but anyhow if you do what to read another one of the above list, I recommend Blood

That would be a good idea for the poll but let me discuss with Brenda because I have no idea how to set it up lol
