@Bookbuyer - you've got a few that I've been wanting to read: the Talon (Talon, #1) by Julie Kagawa series and Wintersong (Wintersong, #1) by S. Jae-Jones .

I'm also reading Flamecaster (Shattered Realms, #1) by Cinda Williams Chima this month in the YA Buddy group (with you, right?), but I will be ready to go to book 2 for April if you want.

Yes. I've been inching towards it for a while in YA and I want to get to at least the top 5 this year. I've cracked the top 10 but haven't really gotten any higher. :)

I still had a lot in a box from years ago but never finished the series so I have been slowly working on them. If you ever get them and want to BR the rest of the series, just let me know when you are almost there. :)

I am worse still. Not necessarily bought (lots were freebies) but still I have probably 4000-6000 books between physical and ebooks that I own but haven't read. So I've been trying lately to read a lot of older titles (especially for print books) to I can free up space for new books. I am still listing all by books so not sure the exact number. Hoping to be finished listing this summer. Then I will know how far behind my TBR I really am.... *gulp*

those sound interesting! I'm down! you can pick whatever day you want for those and I'll be there. Did you want to do them for both groups?


message 50: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments I can do them in both groups. In my fantasy group I will be starting Age of Myth around April 15th and Theft of Swords around May 12th.

Both are reread for me, so I hope you love them!
