    I’m reviewing Elysian Fields on the 15th! House of Ivy & Sorrow sounds really good, too. I’m also interested in what you think of Pivot Point. I haven’t picked up a copy yet, but I will if you end up liking it. 🙂 Ooh, Man Made Boy has been on my TBR for quite some time. Great haul this week!

    Have a great week, Kim! Sorry I haven’t been around much this past week. It’s been a rough one.

      sweet I love the sound of it. Linky is back-up so please be sure to link up.

  2. Cyn

    I really like the cover of House of Ivy and Sorrow! I can’t wait to start reading These Broken Stars (I’m trying to find a day where I can just read the whole book in one sitting haha). Great haul! I have Pivot Point waiting for me to start too, (and The Distance Between Us), been hearing great things about Kasie West (:

    • kimbacaffeinate

      thanks Cyn, I am featuring Ivy and Sorrow on my WoW and was tickled pink when I got it:)

  3. Bea

    I’ve been seeing These Broken Stars everywhere! The cover for it is growing on me 😀 I like the colors but the text is hard to read.

    happy reading!

        Thanks, I added it. I think it’d be fun to get in on hosting a challenge, but my blog’s pretty new and I’d assume y’all would prefer someone more established. But I’ll participate for sure!

      thanks Ellen I am glad you liked Pivot Point and for 1.99 I snagged it, since reviews have been outstanding.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I thought so too, and she made it so nice and easy to navigate.

  9. Dina

    I really like the new look of your blog and hope you are enjoying WordPress. So much easier to use and much more comment friendly than blogger.

    I purchased Pivot Point recently because I cannot turn down a decent book at $1.99 and heard really great things about it. Hope you enjoy it!

    • kimbacaffeinate

      I liked that price tag too, which is why I grabbed it, that and all the fab reviews I’ve been reading. I am loving WP and all the new things I am learning on a daily basis.

  10. Jan

    You had a great reading month, Kimba. I hadn’t realized Pivot Point was only $1.99. I just went and bought it! Thanks!

    You got some good looking books this last week…These Broken Stars especially interests me. As always thanks for hosting this meme.

  17. April

    Yay on winning the puzzle challenge! Woot! I had to snag Pivot Point too – it’s such a great price right now and sounds fabulous!

    I’m really intrigued about a lot of Heather Graham’s books, I love their covers and their titles.. and even their synopsis sounds great.. but the first time I read one of them I wasn’t really that wowed, so I’ve been hesitant to pick up any more. I should give her another go!

    House of Ivy and Sorrow sounds so good and I love the cover, I added that one to my wish list!

    I’ve been seeing These Broken Stars everywhere it seems like, I really, really, really love that cover! I hope you love them all 😀

    • kimbacaffeinate

      My favorite Graham book are the Bone Island Trilogy and her new series in NO, and I cannot remember name of first book..hmm will email you if I think of it..the protagonist can sense things when she touches objects and runs a antique shop..darn it.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Squee..i cannot wait to read both and everyone seems to love Pivot Point. Have a great week Sally:)
