kittykat (Jo Tortitude) Of course, He Started It has already been released in some parts of the world (30.04 in the UK). I wish these articles would specify that they are talking US release dates only, especially as so many of them release much later outside of the US, it's fairly rare to find one of the 'big' books that releases outside of the US earlier than it does in.

tracy Gay bruth


TheCultureVulture Axiom's End and He Started It have my interest. Not ready "To Read" them but hopefully people on my friend's list can do some quality control and keep them in mind while I catch up on my current readings.

Sara The Pull of the Stars is easily one of my favourite reads so far this year. Currently reading The Year of the Witching and loving that too. It's a lot darker than I thought it would be.

Philip Though all of them seem inspiring, "He started it" really intrigues me with but it's title, the front-cover shovel, and all that implies.

You're right, and I missed it. If it was included in the title it would be a lot harder to miss.

Agree. It's getting terrible. It used to be fun reading these posts. I've usually heard of the GoodReads books, but I like reading the comments in case someone recs a book I've not heard of. But it's getting to where I'm better off reading my books instead, lol.
