These are the books I am looking forward to this week.  What do you think?


  1. I really want to read The Ghosts of Ashbury High! I love Jaclyn Moriarty!

  2. Great post, I added a few of this to my GR wishlist :)

  3. Lightborn sounds like it'll be a good read. Though I guess I'd need to read book 1 first?

  4. I'm not sure if Lightborn will read more as a stand-alone or if you will need to read the first one, Darkborn. I really enjoyed the first one though, so I am looking forward to this one.

  5. Well i am looking forward to Christine Feehan's release!!! She is one of my favorite authors; especially of the paranormal!!! She portrays it so well!!!
