aliceinbagend (LydiaMae) Better catch up on An Ember in the Ashes Quartet. So excited to read them!

Anissa Lying in Wait was quite the page-turner. It's US debut is finally here and I think it's going to be well received.

I continue to wish that the gap in time between publications in the US & UK were shorter. My reading life is more and more digital but of the books I do analog, 80% of them are those as yet not released in the US.
